I had done a restart before and it says all my updates are checked an up to date. My laptop is heating up because of this long update.
When you download and install programs, files, photos, and extensive music libraries onto your PC, all of it gets saved onto your hard drive. Last but not least, it is advised to check the list of known issues before you install updates.
So I always use a freebie called Classic Shell, which quickly gets rid of all the mobile-type stuff in W10, and brings it back to the Win 7 era with a simple start menu and stuff. It’s only for the ones that don’t end up in start menu for whatever reason (Usually the built in apps like notepad or paint, msconfig, etc.) so it’s actually very rarely I use it. Windows 10 syncs many things like passwords, browser settings, system and language preferences etc. with your Microsoft account.
What Is windows 10 In S Mode? Can I Change It To Regular Windows?
Affected Win 7/8.1 users had to manually install the about 10 security updates for the monthly Patch Tuesday, missing mediatoolbox.dll ONE-BY-ONE, via M$ Download Center or Update Catalog. I verified this on two PCs running Windows 7 which took ages to check for updates before installing the patch.
You can also try using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to resolve the 20H2 installation error on your PC. This method has worked for several users, and if you haven’t been able to resolve the issue under consideration yet, we suggest trying this method.

Doing so will revert the components to their initial, error-free state.
It’ll take around minutes in completing the task and after completion, if you check Disk Cleanup tool again, it’ll no longer show Windows Update Cleanup option in the list. At this time, there is no cleanup utility for Windows Server 2008 R2. For Windows Server 2012 users, Microsoft advises using PowerShell commands to free up WinSxS disk space. Drew I tried to do a daily scheduled task and it’s fine for running the disk cleanup but it doesn’t include the second section of clean up system files. There was a Sage included but I don’t recall which post I picked it up in.

Windows update is mostly safe to do while performing other tasks, with the caveat that if a file needs to be replaced, it must not be open for read/write at that time. Nowadays, Windows is good about replacing files during shutdown and restart, making file replacements safer. Free up storage space and defragment your hard drive. Select the Performance tab, and check activity of CPU, Memory, Disk, and Internet connection.
Defragment Your Hard Drive
After successfully installed the new updates on 18 Nov my Kaspersky failed to launch. Then the start button, menu and internet connections failed to respond.
