    I just go into Restart Options every day, and change "today" to "tomorrow".

    I found a temp fix to hide this update for now.

    1. When update installs & you see a windows logo & no circle mean update no good. Turn on & off PC 2 or 3 times then it will boot into repair mode.

    2. Let it fix it & then it reboot then will say update failed undoing changes then you will get back on.

    3. Run this tool wushowhide.zip & it will search then check hide update & look for the KB4056892 for 1709 or KB4066891 for 1703.

    4. Then reboot if it attempts to install update again let it run & just do above but don't run the tool & it will not come back. Reboot once again & done.

    In order for this to work it must say failed to install with error code or if it doesn't give a code it will still work. My other PC didn't give one & I did same thing & all good.

    That's the same fix I mentioned in Post 12 above. I think the tool blocks any pending update - there is no need for the update to fail and to invoke the Automatic Repair process.

    Looks like it made the UK tabloids:

    Windows 10 WARNING: Users left unable to start PCs after Meltdown patch | Tech | Life & Style | Express.co.uk

    Microsoft still acting dumb refusing to comment or advise their paying customers on whether the computers broken by the update, will ever work again, on day 4 of the fiasco.

    Add me to the list as well. I have two PC's with AMD Athlon CPU's (5000+ and a 5600+ Windsor) that have failed. One was able to repair and revert to previous build, but the 5000+ has bricked the computer on the update. Will not repair or revert back to a previous build. Tried everything I can find so far (restore's, repairs, etc..) without anyway to get this PC to run again! Hope Microsoft has a fix coming!

    Microsoft have acknowledged the problem with KB4056892 crashing with error code 0x800f0845 in the Microsoft Answers Forum, page 11.

    They say that they are investigating, and would like affected users to submit feedback on the Feedback Hub app to help with the troubleshooting.

    NOTE: The Microsoft Answers Forum stopped working for me in Firefox today for some reason, works OK in the Edge browser.

    Don't panic, just wait it out.
    Dave.

    More news from Microsoft
    They are no longer automatically sending KB4056892, and several other updates, to a set of computers using AMD chipsets.

    A fix should appear soon.

    Hope this helps,
    Dave.

    Thanks for the updates. I see it is finally shown in the known faults in the update notes too. Good to see they are taking it seriously.

    According to both AMD and Microsoft, the fix for the old Athlon based computers should be out next week.

    Hope this helps,
