Default if having trouble with latest windows update

One possible fix to help an update install, don't ask your computer to force closed the running apps, believe it or not, one of the running app is the windows update and forcing it closed could make the update file lose it's information.

So, if having trouble, actually close all the apps, then when the applet pops up that a program needs to close, it'[s probably windows update, just wait for windows to close the remaining programs on it's own.

Takes a little longer but might get you through the update

Very true. I've been stuck in update hell this way.
