Windows 10 update stops updating

Recommended Posts

I'm updating Window 10. Windows 10 Insider Preview 15063 gets stuck at "Downloading Updates 8%". 

I've turned off all the features of MWB, then rebooted my laptop. Now Windows 10 is updating.

Is there an easier way to "Disable Malwarebytes" prior to updating Windows?

Thanks, Dan

It does not look like I have an Exit option in the System Tray menu options.  I have Quit Malwarebytes.  But does this actually shut down MWB so the update can occur?

As for the Windows bug reply above. Yea, that's a possibility, but I rebooted and did a complete shutdown a couple times.  

All previous Insider updates went in perfectly and not one hitch.  This is the first time.

Thanks for the replies so far.

Quitting it will stop it until the next restart.  But the best thing to do is deactivate Malwarebytes then Uninstall it.  Then run the Windows 10 upgrade and after successful installation, re-install Malwarebytes.

As a general rule, it is a good idea to uninstall any third party security app prior to a Windows upgrade, or at the very least, disable all its real time protection.
