Hi Bought yesterday for mi folks Dell Optiplex 320 core 13 windows 10 from. It's not been started in a month so should there be lots of Microsoft updates, seems its spent last 3hrs updating, freezing, installing etc.

Also it had avg free pre installed when updates were freezing so I uninstalled avg and updates carried on as normal so is it best to just use windows defender and firewall.

Defender OK but I prefer something a little better,

I used AVG then Avast for a long time before AVG became bloated and Avast pop ups got too intrusive.

Try Kaspersky free version

Many thanks Mjs Warlord, should I just let the updates run then?

It's a dell optiplex Intel core 13 I like avg I just wonder whether it's any better than defender though it seemed to stop windows security updates. Heard best to use windows firewall and 3rd party Av.

OK thanks, it's says all updated but when I check for updates it finds stuff. Also the restart time after updates, if set fir 3pm is that daily or just after updates installed? Thanks
