If you’ve found that your system keeps trying to download and install the Creators Update but fails partway through or just doesn’t apply the update no matter how many times you hit “Restart and update,” you might need to fire up your command prompt.Windows Update doesn’t always do its job well, so if you’re experiencing problems installing the Creators Update first you should try clearing out the existing Update files.However, as Microsoft recently said in a blog post, some users may be intentionally blocked because of known issues which aren’t yet patched.If you can’t get the update, it may be for your own good.

As a major update to Windows, the Creators Update offers a host of new features designed to maximize your creativity and help you get the most out of your operating system.

Microsoft recommends users reset Windows Update by simply starting it and restarting it in the console, as we described in our solution for the first problem in this list.

Fire up your command prompt and type “net stop wuauserv” and then “net start wuauserv.” Alternatively, you can manually download Windows Defender malware definitions from Microsoft here.

Once you do, just run the file, follow the prompts, and your Windows Defender is up to date.

Some users are reporting that the Creators Update is making it difficult for them to add new users to an existing Windows 10 install without a Microsoft Account.
