[13MAR17] [UPDATED] Faults when running the Operations Center and/or the OC based Product Updaters AND WHAT TO DO...

I, for one, always appreciate your suggestions and suppositions. 

 However, I live in South Florida, which is not exactly the hinterlands, and very seldom have problems with downloads.

Each time (at least 12) I tried to update via the Operation Center, it sped thought the download, and a command window opened:  It indicated that 2 items were updated and completed.  Then everything ceased. I waited at least 3 or 5 minutes several times. Then gave up. Nothing, it seemed, was happening. (I know now that I was too hasty to give up).  That’s when I posted the my lack of success with the update.  It was then that a fellow simmer suggested that it might be a very long process.  So I tried again. The command window did not resume updating for at least 6 or 7 long minutes:  The whole process took more than 25 minutes to complete the update.  But, success at last!    

I believe, only a theory, that Windows 10 may be the culprit in this case.  When you turn off virus protection and /or the firewall, Windows 10 Defender tries or does turn-back on automatically - this could be what slowed-down the process so substantially.  Perhaps it monitors activity in the command lines more closely, thus slowing down the update. (A side note: Some of the first Win 10 unstoppable updates me caused a bunch of problems in the beginning with FS).

But if there is a second QOTS  update, I will be well prepared to sit and wait.

So thanks again Kyle, et al, for trying to resolve all the problems we have with this obsessive hobby...

I can safely say that theory is incorrect, as I run Windows 10 and did not have this issue.

Iv'e had many problems with Win10 since I got a new gaming rig with it pre-installed (licensed to the PC build company ) and had to give up Win 7...

But again, it's only a theory: Who knows?  But aren't there are a bunch of others out there with update problems?  One thing though: I'll sure be ready if there's ever another update

If you know what to do then buy another HD and a copy of Win 7 and create a dual boot system. That way you have the best of both.
