I was having problems with Windows Update on Monday Night/Tuesday Morning. I purchased a reconditioned Win 7 Pro machine to replace an XP device that is wearing out. I powered it up and activated it Monday evening and ran the first set of Windows Updates to bring it up to current. The first set ran fine but when I attempted to run Windows Update again to catch the second wave Windows Update was not available. The error messages blamed Windows Firewall but there was nothing I could do to get the system to work. I thought the rebuilt computer was a dud ($65 through a reputable company). But I tried Windows Update again at 8am and everything is fine and up to speed.MysteryMan said:Microsoft had a brain fart this morning and attempted to download Windows 10 on my PC.
It was either a problem at Windows Update or all of my bandwitdh was being consumed by my computer and my wife's computer downloading the final files for Windows 10. I have not checked her machine to see if it is "ready to install" like mine.
