I have just gone to Update my Windows 8.1 with the latest updates, it downloaded them, 25 I think (included MS Office updates as well) and is now sat at Preparing to install stage where it has been for the last hour and thirty minutes. There is no processor, network  or hard disk usage in process, anybody got any suggestions?

Looks like I have fixed it, not sure what was wrong those, here is what I did (after a bit of googling)

 

Go in to control panel and go to Action Centre

 

Click on Troubleshoot Computer Problems at the bottom of the page

 

Click on Fix problems with Windows Update which is under System and Security at the bottom of the list.

 

Mine ran through some test for about 40 seconds and then displayed a screen saying fixed

 

Now my laptop is now installing the updates
