Slow down load/install of upgrades – Home windows 10 Aid

So Farrare

I have questioned this dilemma prior to, I believe in Networking, but maybe because I did not explain it sufficiently I never got a truly satisfactory respond to.

Dell desktop: XPS 8700, Core i7 gen 4 CPU (4 cores, 8 threads @ 3.6 GHz), 16 GB RAM, “1 TB” HDD, Get 10 Professional Model 21H1, Build 19043.1202

Dell laptop computer: Inspiron 15R 5537, Core i7 gen 4 mobile CPU (2 cores, 4 threads @ 1.8 GHz), 12 GB RAM, “1 TB” HDD, Earn 10 Property Model 20H2, Establish 19042.1202 (both equally build quantities right after present-day update described under)

Connected on household WiFi network, with smartphone and printer, but that is probably irrelevant for my query.


Problem: why does it choose so extensive to down load/set up procedure updates, e.g. CU and/or CU “Preview” kinds?  Now I put in the “optional” CU Preview for equally systems, starting off the laptop computer first, the desktop 5 minutes later on.  To reply the apparent concern, I do have a gradual Web connection.  I measured it with WiFiman in the course of the download — it was suitable all-around 1. Mbps, that is common out below late in the afternoon.  The desktop took 2 hrs flat for the total method the laptop about ten minutes extended.  What drives me nuts is seeing it complete the download and then sit there for half an hour or much more apparently executing nothing at all (it states “Downloading 100%”, and just after a whilst “Putting in %”, then right after a Very long time the Set up goes to 20% and sits there for half an hour or so, then goes gradually to completion.  This time, unlike any former celebration, the “Set up” p.c did NOT fall back again to 20% and begin in excess of, but rather it went straight to “Restart” — so todays was by much the fastest I have ever skilled.  Still exasperatingly gradual.  There was almost nothing else going on, at the very least not of my undertaking, through all of this.  Maybe the most exasperating aspect is that the laptop will sit there for fifty percent an hour or far more, with HDD heading consistently, but without ANY progress on the download or put in percentage shows.


I need to include that the last time this transpired, a few of weeks ago or so, I utilised Activity Manager to see what all that tricky disk activity was about.  The most dominant point going on there (it fluctuates from second to next, but the difficult disks of both equally personal computers are going continually throughout this complete system) was the installer for MS Edge — which I was not employing, but probably it needed updating?  At any charge it very very well monopolized the HDD of the desktop for most of the 3 several hours moreover on that event.


I never imagine the gradual World wide web is the complete problem in this article — the personal computers spend most of their time, although supposedly downloading or setting up software program, displaying no development at all on the percent scales — but with challenging disk likely entire tilt).
