    Big time problems with KB3016725

    While posting my computer locked up. Using W-10.

    It installed KB3016725 without any notice.

    The result.
    1. Unable to go on line. Locked up my router and modem.
    Rebooted computer, modem and router.

    2. Lost use of my Microsoft wireless mouse. Had to reboot using a PS2 mouse to get the driver to work on the USB 2.0 Dongle wireless mouse.

    3. Router and my modem still keep dropping off in Windows 10 but works on the same computer using Windows 7.
    Router and modem also works on my other computer using Windows 7

    **In Windows 7 you can shut down using the keyboard but in W-10 you can't. You have to use the buttons on the case.

    I will go back into W-10 and see what else is bonkers.

    I'm back into using W-10 and obviously the internet is working. I did notice that when booting and getting to the desktop the router and drive activity light were very busy for about 2 minutes. I did nothing until they settled down.

    I've performed that update before.. and I have to do it again today.
    I'll report if I see any issues.

    My PC fails to boot every time W10 installs this update. It goes into Startup Repair, then fails to diagnose the issue, then I have to go into the recovery settings and uninstall preview updates before I can boot back into W10. I just hid the update manually; I'm not dealing with it anymore.
