    Windows 8.1 updates not downloading

    I'm just setting up a new Lenovo Ideapad for my wife, but have run into a problem. There are 89 updates listed as necessary, but none of them are downloading. I've tried manually downloading them and automatically doing so. I've restarted the computer. On the advice of Microsoft help, I've downloaded and run the Windows update diagnostic troubleshooter, which tells me it has not fixed the problem. Informative, but not helpful!

    ADDENDUM: It seems that even though the troubleshooter listed the problem as not fixed, it, or something else I have done, has fixed it!

    Sorry to bother everyone!

    Try disabling all your security software and the run Windows update. If that doesn't work, try disabling all the entries in the startup tab in Task Manager.
