    Today is 2nd tuesday of the month and Microsoft announced an update to Windows RT.

    I received the update and also a firmware update which I applied, 13 items. The problem is installation breezed through the first 12 and for the past 2 hrs. I've seen

    Installing update 13 of 13
    Don't turn off your PC

    Has anyone else seen this? Eventually I'm going to have to take some action, but wanted to know if this is a glitch or not before I risk bricking this machine.

    Anyone have instructions for recovery (just in case?)

    I'd turn it off (long press power button).

    Unless it's doing the firmware update it's unlikely to break anything... I've had this in the past and survived.

    If things do wrong, you can do a refresh providing you have another PC to look up pages like this:

    A quick update. The reboot was'nt the issue' I've don't that on more than one ocassion. What I found curious was after the power off when I powered back up it configured an update.

    There were two more updates and the firmware update to perform. The device is definitely a lot more responsive after the changes.

    I would try a refresh on the tablet anytime it acts laggy after an update.

    Question, if I do a refresh would I have to re-install all updates again, including the office update.
