Apps hang while updating
I’ve tried to collect as many solutions that I ended up using in this guide.Hopefully, someone will be able to fix their problem by looking here rather than searching a bunch of websites.Usually this means there is some software installed on the computer that is causing problems with other aspects of Windows.It could be an anti-virus software or just a normal program you downloaded off the Internet.
Make sure to uncheck the box that says “Load Startup Items“. If you find that Windows is not hanging anymore, then you can be 100% sure that it’s a problem with a third-party program or service.Now click on the Services tab and check the box that says “Hide all Microsoft services“. There is no easy way to determine which startup item or which service is causing the problem.You basically have to manually figure it out by re-enabling half the startup items and then restarting.Either way, the best way to see if this is really the issue is to perform a clean boot.Step 1: Log into Windows 7 with Administrator rights, click on the Start button and type in MSCONFIG in the search box.
