    Really!!!! Wow!! I cant wait for them to try again, and here was me threatening to unsurgically remove their kneecaps - silly me!!!!
    Well maybe Windows is working so well for most people that their techies don't really have anything else to do with their time except search for those poor individuals who are having problems that they don't even know about .

    Only ever received 1 call out here in Greece, but I'd love to get more, just to see how long I could string them along by asking stupid questions and generally misunderstanding (which I am very good at doing on occasion.)

The standalone update is well into the download, and I've realised I can use the same files on both laptops, thus saving a second download.

    Fingers crossed that installation will be as smooth .

    I hope it goes well.

    I used to have problems downloading the online JAVA.
    When I started using the offline .exe files I had no problems.

    To those of you who responded to my post: THANK YOU for your help. In the end, KB3000850 did load, and install, and so far has caused me no problems. My guess is that MS watches these posts closely, and responds by fixing these types of issues as they are able to, but that they do not disclose this to us. If my theory is correct, then the computing community owes you gratitude.

    The download hang at 4% is normal. I posted this a few weeks ago. It has done this on all my systems.

    I am doing my Laptop now. The download goes to 4% then pauses and Windows Modules Installer Worker kicks in high gear and shows lots of Disk activity. After a while it calms down and the download resumes. Running on my Laptop with a SSD it took 10mins to resume the download.Download pauses at 90% and Service Host and System kick in high gear with Disk activity. After another 3 min the install starts. Another 7 min and ready to reboot.
