    Because at best you will only have 3G or maybe 4G which probably won't have enough capacity to handle big downloads. Phones and tablets won't usually update over a mobile data connection either. Connect to a proper wifi network and that should solve it (y)

    Origin server overloaded?
    Microsoft update "blocked" by browser?
    Anti-virus blocking download?
    Virus on your machine?

    Is it a registered copy? If you type registering or something like that in Windows help you should be able to check.

    It might be a region thing, are you going through a proxy of any sort to mask your location?

    How big is the update? Could it be that SFR block file downloads over a certain size and you just haven't hit the limit before now? Or are you at the end of the month and not got much data allowance left?

    Tried all that. I do not want to re install.
    Might just wait for win 10!

    Thanks to all for trying to help it is appreciated.

    Microsoft should put out a fix it seems to be a common problem with win 8.1!!!
