    Win 10 will cold boot but not restart while running??

    Did a clean install of Win10. All went well and all working.
    However, after I did a few Microsoft “Updates” I could no
    longer get the PC to do a “Restart”. Yes, I could and can

    start the PC from a cold Boot. I’ve also installed Win10 on

    another computer and it has the same problem after updating.

    Any suggestions?
