Can I pause or stop an update in progress?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to do some important work & the update interferes with the speed of my laptop. It was updating for hours yesterday, but was OK most of today.  Now it has started again!!! I'm frustrated! I'd like to pause it so I can get my work done. Is there a way to do that?  Or to set a time frame that I do not want updates to happen in?

Update can be canceled, however, it is run with low priority so it should not noticeably affect the system performance. Does temporarily disabling startup scan tasks in Scheduler make a difference?

You could provide logs generated as follows for perusal:

  1. Enable advanced operating system logging in the advanced setup -> Tools -> Diagnostics when the issue is manifesting
  2. Stop logging after 20-30s
  3. Collect logs with ESET Log Collector and upload the generated archive here. If the archive is too big to upload here, upload it to a file sharing service and drop me a private message with a download link.
