I've been faced with a Purple screen with a loading (circle of dots) indicator in the middle so I assume this is just for a Windows update however, this has taken far longer than usual updates and I'm getting slightly worried, would appreciate some guidance

type of machine - desktop, laptop, tablet, phone?

Make and model?

10 upgraded from 7 or 8?

the rotating circle of dots is often an indication that updates are being installed, and you'll sometimes see it when the computer restarts after being updated.

Take a look at your machine's hard drive light - is it flickering? If it is, it's telling you that something is going on.

Go to Control panel.Troubleshooting. Click on fix problems with windows updates. Another box should open eventually click on run as administrator see if that helps.
