    Problem updating my new computer with Windows 8.


    Just got my new Windows 8 computer.

    I first started the computer and began to download everything I needed. But after like 6 hours it told me that it needed to update. So I did it. It was 76 updates. It took like 30 minutes to do the first 75. But now it is stuck! It have been stuck in over 15 hours now.

    What do I do?

    I don't want to reset the computer if I don't really need to. But if I need to, i'll do it of course!

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center

    Go for it.

    If it crashes you can restore it to factory settings again.

    Then download a few at a time instead of all at once.
    Just my opinion.

    edit---you could open task manager & stop the process.
