We had tech help last night and they set it up to download

Customer Question

We had tech help last night and they set it up to download windows again and download windows updates. 8 downloads in all. It ran all night and had not even completed 1 download. I even tried to hard wire rather than use the wifi and still no completion of even one. I am not sure what to do, but I need a computer that works. Can you help us?

Sometimes, the computer will freeze on updates and you will need to power it off and power it back on again.

Hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds until the computer powers off.

Wait 10 seconds and power it back on.

Did the updates download? Are you able to use the computer?
