Hello Geeks!

We all have our issues with Windows Update, and recently one of these has begun to get on my nerves.
If an update is downloading, I should be able to right click it or double click it to make it open right?
However (if I could write that in big flaming red letters, I would) this doesn't work. I find myself or a friend constantly spamming the Windows Update button with clicks, but nothing happens. After a while I can take myself the time to open it from Start menu.

Does anyone else have this problem? Or a solution?

Thank you,

Just a suggestion. Try turning off W Update and rebooting. Then restart W Update.
