  • Question

  • Hi,
    I couldn't find the right forum, sorry.

    I'm using  Windows 8 Pro.  I wanted to download (only) Windows 8.1 via the App Store to
    do an installation later on -my be on a new disk.
    Before the installation itself started I could choose to "cancel".
    Now every day  pops up a message to continue the installation and
    most annoying the virusscanner (Defender) could not be updated.
    I have to stop a process  Windows 8.1 installer  or the Windows Installer).

    Is there a good way to stop the Win 8.1 installation and not do loose the downloaded  file(s)?

    Thanks  for  your help.
