Customer Question

Have just bought an ASUS laptop and it was working fine and I succeeded in getting it to accept my gmailaddress. however as there was a free windows10 I attempted to download this and it carried on downloading windows updates for several hours while asking not to be shut down. I had to leave it running through the night until it stopped downloading and produced the backdrop colours but nothing else and if I press escape I get the offer of putting in an Outlook password ***** it will not accept any letters and there is an icon in the corner frozen in the 3 quarters completed position.

It is still frozen and will not allow the power button on the screen to do anything and the outlook password ***** ***** not accepted-I think that all the excessive download of windows updates has crashed the system and there must still be more to upload hence the 3quarter full frozen icon in left corner after running non stop for hours it would not allow me to stop and I obviously really need to remove that download of updates I didn't want
Expert:  Viet - Technician replied 1 year ago.
Sorry. Can you press and hold the Power on/off button on the computer for about 10 seconds, then it should power off the laptop. Then turn it back on and try the 5 steps above again. Please let me know. Thank you.

I have finally sorted it myself but thanks for the suggestions
Expert:  Viet - Technician replied 1 year ago.
Great. Did you reset the password ***** the website I've provided previously? Or did you do something else? But I'm glad you got it working now. Do you need help with anything else on your computer today? Thank you.
Expert:  Viet - Technician replied 1 year ago.
Or if you need help with anything else on the new laptop later on, please let me know any time. Thank you very much for your patience.
