    Today's Update Broke Me & My OS

    I am getting some serious issues after rebooting my PC today to install updates!
    My Service Host DCOM is using g 30+% of my CPU after the reboot and when I click on any windows apps on the task bar nothing happens.
    I cannot open edge, mail, or the windows start menu and I get nothing when right clicking.
    If I open chrome it just sits at a white screen with a page unresponsive showing.
    Trying to uninstall silver light that was installed with the update today but that is just stuck on preparing to remove.
    This update seriously has screwed my computer... Well done MS. =(

    Tried doing a system restore back to March 11th but it just keeps failing with an 0x80070091 error.
    Wow this update....
    I would suggest to NOT update your PC today!
    I assume the update did not fully install and broke much of the core services?

    I performed the update of 3-14-17 and the only problem was that at the very end of it all I was stuck in a loop saying not to shut down. After 20 minutes I shut down. All is working ok and all installed OK.

    Do you have an image you can recover to?
    I use Macrium free and it saves the day many times.
    I hope you are imaged/backed up.
    Besides that maybe one of the pros can suggest something to help you.
    Did the update finalize?
    Did you get an error message?
    You are using Windows 10 right?

    Yeah Win 10 and no I did not do an image backup since it was just a small cumulative update.
    I assume it finalized, I let it update and came back later and logged in to find this mess.

    I am in safe mode right now and all is running well so definitely an update issue.

    Well I uninstalled the update and restarted.
    Once my computer restarted it showed an update processing that went to 100% went back to my desktop with the same exact issues and problems I went back into my uninstall programs and uninstalled the update again and restarted.
    It show the update was uninstalled so I reinstalled the latest update that I downloaded while in safe mode and the same issue persists. Opening any webpage goes into not responding, cannot open anything windows related on my taskbar, and the dcom server process is using g 30%+ of my CPU.

    I am going to have to do a wipe and reinstall of windows now? This is so ridiculous.

    At the very end of the installation, it said,"Do not shut down your PC ."
    That lasts about 25 minutes. So wait.
    I thought I was in a loop so I did a hard shut down and when I booted up it showed the same message for a brief time then completed successfully. No problems.

    Oh I would never do that.
    1st thing this morning I saw the update, chose to install and it and restart and then left my PC for about 90 mins.
    I came home and it was at my login, that is where it all started.

    Looks like I am going to have to do a full wipe and reinstall.
    I cannot even do the repair reinstall from a thumbdrive due to it telling me I have to reboot and initialize it from the desktop but I cannot open anything on the desktop without the computer just freezing that app before it even shows.
    Looks like I will have to do and get it done via safe mode and see if it can repair this update crap of a mess (but I suspect I won't be able to in safe mode) otherwise I will have to do a full wipe...argh.

    Hi there,

    I've got the same problem like you Udonitron:
    -DCOM Launch uses 30% of my CPU
    -Firefox won't respond, Chrome too
    -System's very "glitchy", Startbutton won't work, Task Manager(ctrl-alt-del) ends up in Black-Screen, confirm program permission ends in a blank screen (you know, that windows that pop up when you try to run something in admin-mode etc.)

    I have tried to uninstall the update, but the same effect happens to (goes back to 100%--> Update is reinstalled), I have even tried a system recovery (back to 13.03), but even this isn't going to help.

    I read a similar problem here: same problems, weird "man made" solutions I wouldn't try in first place.

    I hope that Microsoft will fix this, or i have to reinstall my whole system...
