It kept freezing my machine and my brothers. As soon as i got off work I was getting reports from my wife of machine freezing and having to be hard reset and my brother calling me telling me the same thing.

In the end the only way to not get the machine to totally freeze was to turn off avast and voodooshield on all machines, restart and then start the update and even then it would take the update up to 40min to download/install and would hang at 22%-45% for a span on 30 min or so.

At Least for me it wasn't as bad as the windows xp service pack botch from years back.

Same here, update hangs at 22% for a long time and 100% disk usage with very high response time (14-20 secs). Then I turned off Comodo Firewall (all components). Ran update troubleshooter and all went fine.

All the problems with Windows Updates so far are connected with user error and third-party Software (drivers, programs, etc...), that is the true. I been using Windows 10 even way before day one, and never had a single update cause me issues on any of the PCs at home or at work :coffee:

Not trying to say Microsoft is perfect, they reduced internal testing due to the Insider Program and are still getting great results considering Windows Updates tend to work fine in most machines. Keep in mind Windows runs on a huge array of hardware contrary to Android (where Updates are tested by each brand on a small array of Hardware) and MacOS (and iOS which gets updates that tank performance on older Hardware).

Some people may mention Linux, but there's currently no Linux flavour without bugs (some of them even pack major bugs in their latest stable versions), Kubuntu I'm looking at you who lacks a functioning App Store on clean installed builds (one of many examples).
