    I used to cable it up to the router (quicker) and leave it to go at the updates overnight - total PITA.
    Trouble is the incremental nature of updating innit. It is always easier to do little & often rather than skiploads once a year.

    Even so - Chromebooks are great for updating - so simple & quick you hardly notice it.

    That's exactly why I can no longer use a W 10 machine for work.
    It's about time the silly sods at Microsoft woke up and realised computers are for users, not for their operating system.

    Jesus! It would have been quicker to wipe, clean install and install all apps and settings again. Might be worth disabling your AV during the next feature update tbh I suspect it’s being overly cautious scanning every single file before allowing the change. The nerd in me would have loved to have seen what performance manager was showing.

    Not sure a Chromebook is for you?

    Worry not, you can now buy one, and still get a full refund after 90 days.

    Read the T&Cs and participating retailers. (which is only actually currys pc world by the looks of it)

    Home - Google Chromebook 90 day trial
