This foxed me again and again today as I updated two machines at Tees Valley Arts to Windows 10 – or rather failed to update – four tries later (on 2 separate machines) and I was pulling out my hair (or would have done if I had any left).

Anyhow, a great deal of googling later (and trying of multiple “solutions”) I followed DukeSpookem on a Reddit forum and uninstalled my Avast Business Virus protection and Windows 10 installed like a dream.

This might not work for everyone but I’d try this first as I’d tried lots of complicated things before (which were much more work) and this was much quicker…
