Problems updating windows phone
See How To Recover From a Frozen Windows Update Installation for why this might happen and what to do about it.
Be sure to read through that troubleshooting guide completely but one thing I want to mention here about this: .
Imagine if an open security issue allowed someone scanning for holes just enough access to your computer to install a keylogger.
That would give the individual at the receiving end access to everything you ever type on your keyboard.
However, unless you're considering installing something other than Windows as your operating system, this discussion isn't really valuable.
It's actually good news when a security issue is corrected and that's probably a better way to look at the sometimes large number of updates you see.
Probably because it wasn't Microsoft's fault. Over one billion computers run Windows in the world.
Don't restart your computer while it's starting up if it's taking a minute longer than you're used to - you might end up making the situation worse.
See my How To Fix Problems Caused by Windows Updates tutorial for help.
This is often how high profile business and governmental websites are taken down.
So while it might be annoying to install a pile of updates once per month, it really is important that you do.
