I usually get to about 30-40GB out of 78 before my computer freezes. This never happens for me with Steam, uplay, or Origin, or even my Quantum Break download on Windows 10 store, but it always happens for Gears 4. Anyone know of a solution? Reviews indicate that several others are experiencing the same issue.

You can run WSReset.exe to clear the Windows Store Cache. Then afterwords, run "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) in an admin elevated command prompt window to perform a Windows system files integrity check. I'd probably reboot afterwords before initiating download again just because. Outside of that, I have no idea.

 

Oh and because the Windows Store sucks, I recommend only downloading large programs/apps when you aren't going to be using a large amount of bandwidth (downloading/streaming).

It worked! Thanks for your help.
