    Glad it worked for you mate, bit of an anticlimax though ay?

    nicosxm, might be a good idea to make a post in the forum so your issue doesn't get lost here

    No solution yet.
    I did run Disk clean with Admin.rights, which includes the Windows update cleaner and now trying to install the update again.
    If this will not work, I'm out of idea's.

    OK. How? I looked in Taskbar properties and saw nothing.
    Right click task bar, click properties, uncheck show Windows Store on the task bar.

    So I didn't want to wait the download from Windows Update and downloaded the standalone .msu package (Windows8.1-KB2919355-x64) available here Baixar Windows 8.1 Update para sistemas baseados em x64 (KB2919355) do Centro de Download da Microsoft Oficial, along with the other four required updates. But it's not installing, it's taking too long but nothing is happening.

    Is it happening when downloading from Windows Update as well?E

    EDIT: Now the download has finished and the update is being installed, let's see if it doesn't get stuck.

    Yes, I got that already. Thanks for answering anyway.

    All is well now. All there is left is the slide down app bar with Xs, which I can live with since I Alt/F4 to close out.
