    After the update I had a problem with the Windows DVD Player App. It was grayed out and would not connect. Got error 0X00000005.
    Ran system restore and the Windows DVD Player App worked. Tuesday's updates ran again and the Windows DVD Player App appeared to be ok till I went to a local user, it turned gray and would not connect. I then decided to hide Windows Updates KB3152599 (not sure why I got this one) and KB3156421, going back to the previous restore point, allowing the other updates to install. The Windows DVD App working again for all users.

    @gtspeck: how do you hide an update? glad to see your posting, seems like a bit of a nightmare to not be able to just get an update alert & decide if you want to take it now - or want to put it off & the whole idea of the default of restarting to install when D/L is done is scary, what if your battery is low? the screen says not to turn off your computer; & there is no progress bar…?!

    Yes, I have setting for delaying install of update; but what about the option to not take it now?

    Not just complaining- To All: would like to know what would happen if battery dies during install of update?

    The conventional wisdom and most warnings say to do important or long duration installs and updates on Notebooks WITH the battery installed and having the power supply plugged into a power source just to avoid problems. If an update or Upgrade fails due to power loss it could mean reinstalling the Operating System and all programs plus loss of personal data. The same applies to Desktop computers in having them plugged into a UPS/Uninterruptible Power Supply, especially in areas of unstable power sources. As a sidenote, I have seen HDDs get their format changed to RAW in such sudden power failures, difficult to recover from. Years ago wife's motherboard was damaged by short sharp power bumps, would have been cheaper to have a UPS on it [actually now have on all my computers].

    In my area (northside of Chicago) it is quite common to have power surges and power failures during storms and even lately. seems like Com Ed doesn't maintain anything.

    Hi there,

    Here big problems with the KB3156421 update. Got it downloaded and installed. But during restart it continious deletes the install. Automaticly or manually, no luck at all.

    Anybody with a solution?

    Welcome to the Ten forums Elrosso
    Did you try sfc /scannow in command prompt (admin)? Did you try to run Ccleaner to see if something is wrong. You may also wana try to reset WU: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/kb/971058.
    Good luck! If the problem persist you may have to redo a clean install. I was having a similar issue but things are back to normal now.

    It seems this update fixed my broken apps (because of attempts repair non working start menu)
    Start menu works again as well, but that's normal after an update. Normally it's only for a week or so. Let's see how long the fun will last.
