    on new computer windows update stuck


    Started a new notebook with windows 8.1 64bit installed. Chose local account.
    Updater stuck. Then downloaded kb3135499 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=50796. Installation of kb3135499 stucks. Window keeps saying searching for updates on this computer. Cannot cancel the window.
    Suggestions?
    Thank you.

    Stop the Microsoft merry-go-round by: as soon as possible, right after the next Restart, go to Control Panel --> Windows Updates --> find the choice that indicates: Notify me of available downloads; do not automatically download nor install.
    That will give you and us time to attempt fixes for this problem that come from The 'Net [others who have solutions].
