    Laptop Starting "Limited Account" After Last Update/Windows Update

    Can anybody help me with this. I thought I solved the problem switching to a local account after first occurrence of this after a lone update a few days ago. It has done it again with local account. Please help me fix!

    TIA Mark

    Since nobody responded to my original post laptop starting "limited account" I did some research and all roads lead back to kb3140741. Funny how there is not a peep about it here being an issue.

    It cannot be uninstalled period and this is the last failed update I can take from Microsoft. Enough!!

    Would a mod keep those with the issue or issues with this kb up to date on when a fix will be available?? Please!! This kb has been installed on two desktop pc's (1 32 bit/1 64 bit) and 1 laptop 64 bit. Issue is the laptop.

    Thanks, Mark
