Chose the latter, took all of 4-5 minutes with percentage of progress.
One more cup of coffee, Boom! done.

I am updated.

• 2017-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4032188)
• Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB2267602 (Definition 1.249.713.0)
Man twice this morning I tried to get it all done. The second time after it failed it was stuck on "don't shut the PC off M$ Updates are being loaded" After 4 hours I shut it down.. Screw M$. On restart it went to Updates.. I have had one needs to restart from last week.

Which I did do a restart. Yet it reads unsuccessful.

Then 4 failed... Plus 3 Blue Screens. Dang happy I make several Restore Points each week. And after each successful update.

I dropped the possible cause Avast Clean Up Utility. Then there was my using MS clean Up Tool...

Yet they have been reset by Restore Point.. So this MS Update isn't going on my PC f t has it's way, I guess.

Lollie I get the same crap. This never was installed...

I have Windows Defender shut off..

And this one "KB-4034674" has failed from day one when it was released. I have 12 fails with it so far.

And I need to do it as a manual but each time the PC is doing it in auto so my manual reads it as installed.


So my next question is "how do I shut the auto Updates off?"
Anyone share with me, please.

Matter of fact, me thinks I'll be turning off the 'automatic update feature' this evening....

GottaGo, how does one "Shut off the Auto Updates" in Windows 10?
I need to do this Update in a Manual mode. But my PC on start up goes right to Auto Update which tells the manual I have the dang Update installed.
