Our HP laptop....Windows 10.... has been doing a ton of reading and writing....started at 8:30 this morning.
It is now installing....and installing...and restarting....and installing.

Any clue what this is about, why it is taking so long.
I am guessing this is NOT the traditional monthly Tuesday update?


And what is this all about?
We're going to have a Windows 11 at the end of the month?
WTF?
I thought 10 was going to be it? LOL

It could be 2004 installing. It's a rolling update because they can't do them all at once. Mine did a few days ago.

Most likely this is.
However , this one may be the one that loads new features , and a bunch of fixes from the Insider branches.
The last one took over an hour on my other , OP , machine.

What update is it?

M$ have pushed out some big "updates" recently, only to find that many computers go in an endless restart loop.
Maybe you are one of the unlucky ones?

Wind ows update (KB4559309) Continually asking for a restart

and then there is

Windows 10 KB4559309 update is reportedly making PC slower

M$

This may be it :

KB4568831 Cumulative Update

In which case , my above post was correct.

Be concerned if has taken since 8:30

Go to "Settings" and view "Update History." It will tell you.

It says it is at 91%
I don't know what we can do about it at this point.

And, I think it is 2004. Before it started installing, I checked the update box and remember seeing 2004. I think.

Well, it looks like it is done. FINALLY!
BUT, it is slow to load the desktop page.
Which, IIRC, people were complaining when I did a search a bit ago.

Will Gates' vaccine require "updates", all-the-time?!?!?
He's supposed to be some kind of computer expert, but EVERY Microsoft product has defects built right in that require constant repair.
How will he be with products that are out of his expertise?
Can't wait to see, but there's an update, so it'll be just a sec...

They stopped announcing what they are installing on the monthly update... which, when your job is to tell the entire company what is being installed is just dumb.

One day, 1099, will be mandatory. That was halted when it was too intrusive (last year??) but the incremental updates were supposed to get it closer until they do make it mandatory.

All I know is we have been planning since February before we allow it. Our company is in second beta test... as for the real world, I don’t know.

The new update software on MS sucks because you have no idea what is being installed!

Have you thought of looking in Windows Update history to see what it is?

That last update sucked, it also reloaded edge and now will not let me get rid of it anymore or disable it. Edge seems to make history of all my surfing on firefox somehow, I am not into being hacked like that with everything I do being shuffled to their browser. Firefox clears history when closed, but I don't even use edge and when I run Ccleaner, edge always has a lot of files it deletes. Also with this new download, lots more windows saved data is erased every time.

I hate this tracking done by microsoft, they have gone Hulu.

I would advise everyone here do the same thing I have advised all of my clients to do. Stop buying computers with mechanical hard drives. They are obsolete and have become problematic with Windows updates besides being snail slow compared to an SSD. My clients who have SSD's seldom have issues with Windows updates any longer provided they keep their computers free of malware.

If you already have a machine with a mechanical hard drive and don't want to buy a new computer, spend the money and have an SSD installed and your old drive cloned to the new one. Microsoft is silently pushing everyone in that direction anyway by writing their updates with newer technology in mind.

2004 was installed all right.
But no clue why it took like 10 hours to download and install.

I wondered about that.
My desktop has Windows Pro and an SSD.
I purposely postpone my updates until the laptop is working well with the new updates....in case m$ has update issues.
I won't be updating until the 19th!!!!

The laptop is already over 5 years old.
When the time comes, it'll for sure be an SSD!!!

Edge works better than Waterfox most of the time....Waterfox is glitchy at times.
Biggest issue I have with Edge is it sometimes doesn't close when I close it.

I do get those files like you do.
But I use four browsers, depending on what I am doing.
Edge is better than it's predecessor!!!!

The latest update would have been marked as 2004.___ as well
It will be slow after any updater is finished.
Remember Task Manager ?
Watch for CPU , Memory , and Drive to settle down before doing anything.

My laptop was just updated, took 4 minutes. The newer version 2004 is ready if I want it. Now I'm afraid it will take a long time. LOL

Be honest , you have not tried Windows 10 yet , have you ?
7 was merely a start point (an alpha) for Windows 10
8 and 8.1 were betas for Windows 10

All 3 should be in the recycle bin of history with XP and Vista .
