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)

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!!!

The only fix for Microsoft would be if they bought all their victims customers Macs and promised never ever to mention Windows again.

Way too much wine already?
C'mon! It's tomorrow! Patiently waiting on the next instalment.
As for a Mac, now where did I see that thread on software update issues again?:Smile: Was it before or after their security fix (that they never need)?::bigsmile:
