    Leave it powered on whilst connected to the mains. Just leave it to it.

    You probably interupted an update and it now wants to check everything which will take even longer than the original update.

    Not to muddy the waters but apparently the latest Windows 10 update (the emergency Meltdown patch of this Thursday) can conflict with some AV programs, rumours of a BSOD if the two shall clash.
