    Inability to install Windows Updates before updating to bad drivers.
    I better create a shortcut to roll back a driver, this will happen often.

    You can inspect your partitions if you have a bootable partition manager disk to hand..

    I have system restore on the one that won't boot at all now and macrium reflect on the other - which I have run twice only to be told partition does not exist. Guess it's 2 new pc's or go crazy....which I'm already half there....

    Boot from your install media and do a repair.

    I found one thing that it partially fixes: Yesterday, in trying to track down a problem, I deleted several obsolete entries from the Task Scheduler, using its delete function. This morning, when I went back to the module, as soon as it loaded, I got a series of messages that xxx could not be found, all of which said to use Refresh. I went through the series, cancelling each one, and then tried Refresh. To my dismay, all that did was to bring up the error messages again. In addition, the Task Status box was completely empty, as though no task had run.

    I rebooted, which did not fix anything. I did some searching, found a way that fixed this for an earlier version of Windows, by stopping and restarting the scheduler service, but that option is greyed out in Windows 10. Having gotten nowhere, I was about to give up, when I happened to check the Action Center, which showed that updates had been scheduled, so I clicked on that message, which took me to the proper location, where I was able to find that my update was set for something such as 0303 tomorrow, offered to let me reschedule, or to restart.

    I chose to restart, and the first thing I did when the computer was ready was to go back to the scheduler. To my dismay, the same errors appeared, but as soon as I cycled through them, the Task Status box filled in. I tried refresh, which does not remove the messages, but I have determined that each time I enter the scheduler and cycle through the messages, the box becomes active again.

    I originally did a clean install of Build 10240 on a new SSD and have been doing all the automatic updates so far. The cumulative update installed in about 3 minutes and my system rebooted fine. After that I did another reboot just to be sure everyting was OK - and it was.

    Reacting to a few 'privacy' issues, I had turned off a few options when available.

    Upon reading this thread, I discovered Windows Update was missing from Control Panel, and nonresponsive from Start Menu/Settings. A search of Microsoft for KB3081424 from a non-Edge browser netted zilch.

    Thankfully, a link to the download was available in this thread.

    After a fairly quick installation of the cumulative update (and it remains up-to-date), Windows Update returned in Start Menu/Settings. However, it remains missing in Control Panel.

    One negative result from the Cumulative Update: hovering over a pinned taskbar icon normally highlights the icon. Upon removing the mouse cursor, the highlight goes away. It no longer goes away. Only by highlighting another taskbar icon does the highlight go away. Of course, now the other taskbar icon has the highlight. I had to highlight an active taskbar icon to make the inactive taskbar icon no longer highlighted.
