  • It is safe to update Windows, as long as it is an official update and not a pirated version (official meaning from Microsoft)

    Check for viruses and make sure that there aren't many processes eating your CPU/Memory; kill them if they are unneeded.

  • Hi,

     

    I would like to verify what error message you received.

     

    Please understand Windows Update won't affect system performance. After ensuring the computer is clean, I suggest performing clean boot to check the result. Also, you can check  the memory and CPU usage from the Resource Monitor.

     

    Regarding Windows Update issue, please try the Windows Update troubleshooting from Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\All Categories.

     

    Best Regards,

    Niki
