There might also be some wording differences depending on which version of Windows you're using.

Before the draft, Peppers tested positive for a “dilute sample” – too much water, not enough urine – which the NFL considers a failure because drinking lots of water can help beat a drug test, but it does not mean drugs were found in the sample.

If you've got the time, and the patience, we'd recommend waiting a couple of hours, especially with slower machines – go and cut the grass or watch a movie.

It may seem extreme, but you don't want to start meddling with these fundamental processes unless you really have to.

We're going to cover a lot of ground here for several versions of Windows and a variety of 'stuck' scenarios, so you may have to tweak some of these steps to suit your situation and software.

The first point to make is that interfering with updates that aren't actually stuck can cause a host of problems, so you want to make sure they really are stuck.

Most of the time, Windows Update does its job with little if any attention from us.

While we might check and install updates manually from time to time, most Windows 10 computers are configured to apply important updates automatically while older versions, like Windows 7 & 8, usually apply these fixes the night of Patch Tuesday.

Speaking of running smoothly, however, these updates don't always do that.

In recent versions of Windows Microsoft has tried to make the process as pain-free as possible, but with so many hardware and software configurations out there, there's always the chance that some unexpected problem will crop up.

This is not a huge issue, just something I am wondering about. OS Windows 7 64-bit Video card Ge Force GTX 660Processor AMD A10 5800K processor Ram 8GBMotherboard ASUS F2 A85-M PROPower supply Raidmax RX-730SSWhen I play fullscreen games (Vindictus, Skyrim, Mass Effect 1 2, etc.) on my main monitor (monitor 1) any video I have playing on monitor 2 (using an application, not a browser) freezes. The instinctive tendency (for me at least) is to suspect either an insufficient ram to handle the intensity of the demand from the 2 videos at the same time and/or the incapacity of the current video card to process the data of the 2 videos simultaneously.

The sound continues to play but the screen stays the same. Exactly what happen is, the game opens (monitor 1) and the video I am playing (monitor 2) is stuck on the frame it was showing when the game opened. Closing/alt-tabbing out of the game causes the video to begin playing again. As to why the WMP can handle the 2 together and VLC cannot is somewhat beyond my pay grade.
