    Because of the multitude of Windows users version 1703 is being released very slowly.

    It's a very large program. When my PC was upgraded to Windows 10 Professional Version: 1703 Build: 15063.483 the process took a little over 90 minutes to complete and another couple of hours for my PC's responsiveness to return to normal. So far I've experienced no issues with this new version of Windows.

    I have a laptop that appears to be stuck. It has been on the "Getting Windows ready, Don't turn off your computer, for 25 minutes now.
    It has tons of room on the hard drive and nothing else was running as I did the update. It has a dual core Pentium processor in it.
    Anybody else have this happen ?
    Thanks

    Update: After 30 minutes I tried the CTRL ALT Delete and it did nothing. 5 minutes later I pressed the power button. Then I pressed it again. It went back to the message but this time it had a progress percentage showing and it did it.

    If you are talking about the Creator's Update the download/install/reboot cycle took well over two hours on my laptop, about 1 1/2 hours on my desktop. I don't remember how long the "getting ready" process took on either machine. Glad it finally worked for you!

    This happened after it had downloaded and asked to Restart the Computer.

    I can't tell. There were 3 of them. It did 2 and then hung up.
    When I downloaded again it said Cumulative Update. Now I do not see those words but now one says security update and one just says update for windows. I know 1 of the ones that installed first was for Adobe.
    The 2 numbers are KB4034658, and it is the top listed one when I had the machine sort by Installed, newest first.
    The other number is KB4035631. This one is second in the list.

    Did you receive a error code when you experienced the hang up?

    Nope. It just sat there with the little balls making a circle with the things I wrote earlier, no percentage of progress until after I pressed the power button.

    Sounds like a corrupt file was in the download.

    For anyone still using Office 2007 take note. Office 2007 will no longer be supported after 10 October 17. You will need to upgrade to a newer version of office or continue using Office 2007 at your own risk.
