    Windows 10

    On one computer, installed the first time, although I did have to reboot to get Search to work.

    On my computer, I thought it was installed yesterday, as Notifications said that updates were installed, so I did not click on that, only to find a new notification today that updates were available. Checked, found that yesterday's supposed install had failed.

    I have now tried to install the update four times today; each time, I get the screen that `Windows is getting ready to install updates, quickly followed by a restart, and the the pathetic 'Could not complete the update', and soon enough the lock screen appears. No error messages of any sort; both computers have the same Avast! anti-virus setup, so I don't believe that is the problem. I wonder if I ought to disable Avast! and try again.

    Finally, after attempt number four, Notifications changed from claiming that updates were installed to informing that in fact there was a failure. Now the update won't even try to download again.

    Downloaded, disabled Avast! and Comodo Firewall, ran installer, and knew very quickly that it failed, as I got the same messages as before about preparing Windows followed by a restart, with no indication whatsoever that the install procedure was actually working.

    Thanks, but I am at a standstill, totally unable to install this update, sigh.

    This is the third cumulative update that won't install. However I never get a failure message. After te restart when I look to updates I get the message" Al updates are up to date" But a few hours later they are there again, and when I look in installed updates they are marked "failed" Tried the manual update but same result. Microsoft sucks

    Based on advice offered on Microsoft Community, I ran the Windows Update and BIT troubleshooters; ;the former did some things, said that it had fixed the problem, whereas the latter simply said it could not identify the problem.

    In the overly-optimistic hope that with a fixed updated, I could now install KB3097617, I disabled Avast! anti-virus (which is easy to do, even though I have not seen any such instructions on the Avast! forum in the threads I've looked at,) and told the Windows 10 updater to proceed.

    This time, and for the first time, the installer actually went so far as to state that it was updating, instead of immediately restarting. I watched, and hoped, only to have my hopes dashed: After a few moments of 0% having been installed (or whatever the actual language is at that step,) I got a restart, a `cannot install', and a return to the log-on screen.

    That attempt having perhaps the twelfth attempt, after Windows had restarted, I blocked KB3097617 from downloading to my computer, as I had already spent entirely too much time attempting the update. If and when, but only if and when, someone provides me with a method to actually install this update will I unblock it, allow it to again download, etc.

    Groan.

    1. Start Button and Notifications stopped working; restarted, search worked for a few minutes.

    2. Set up an ISO Repair Installation. Process was around 21% of actual install when I left the room; when I returned, what I saw was a disaster in the form of a mid-screen popup, saying that something went wrong and the install failed.

    Now what should I do, other than using my ten-pound sledge hammer on this computer?

    When I ran the installer, the command prompt window said some files were not found except it went too fast or else I would know what it said so it probably didn't install.

    It does not install, it just opens when you click it. And I never have a command prompt. . But now I see I forgot to mention I put it in Windows/System32. Maybe that wil do the trick.
