    Windows Updates Failed Problem

    Hello folks. I've been away on holiday for the past week and I returned in time for the Windows 10 release. I am still using 8.1; more on that later. I went about installing 8.1 updates, however some succeeded and some failed. It won't let me try to install the failed ones again, and I'm not sure why. They do not display on the pending updates list. Anyone have any solutions? I get the feeling a couple of these important updates is for the Get Windows 10 program which will enable me to download the new OS. I'm sick of 8.1. Can anyone help?

01/14 Windows Updates cause problem in startup
As, with last month, I find that one of the oupdates yesterday (01/14) caused a significant increase in startup time. Previously, through process of elimination, I found that update KB2903939 was causing the slow-down. This month, it was one of four updates, none of which were critical, so I...
