AV update frozen on 90%

I initiated a manual update of my AV system this morning and everything seemed to go OK but it then froze on 90% and finalizing. I note that in other posts there have been similar but they clear after a few minutes. Mine has been frozen for 30 minutes now and doesn’t appear to be clearing.

I am running Windows XP SP3, no proxy for internet. Maywarebytes anti malware is working fine.

Hi swainston,

This might sound silly but did you try to reboot your system and try again?
I have seen this before, and for some reason only a reboot would fix it.
