    Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 problems


    Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

    Three days ago my desktop tried to update 1607 3 times. Each time on reboot it says failed to update and reverts. Each day it tries again at shutdown.

    Yesterday my second(son's) computer updated and all I could see was a black screen with a circle. Had to do a repair and it reverted back 2 two updates. Note, this computer does not have integrated graphics - so that fix process would not work.

    Now the wife's computer wants to update but I am not restarting it - if hers goes down it will be hell in my household.

    I looked on the web and don't see much about this update getting fixed by Microsoft. Any ideas what I should do? My main computer is asking to try again and it will just fail or worse - black screen. I told the family not to shutdown the wife's but I know at some point it will try to do the update on its own.

    This is the worst mess we have ever had, but all I see are web pages about the anniversary update - not this one.

    Download microsofts wushowhide utility.Run it when connected to the internet and block the update thats
    the source of the problem.

    Should also create a drive image/system repair disk of a working win 10 install,so you can quickly recover if updates hose your system.

    Disabled windows update in the services on all the home computers to stop the madness. I will turn them back on when good updates are being sent out.

    Ironically, got to the office this morning and my work computer started updating when I booted it up, Failed, reverting of course. How is this mess not blown up the web? I see very little about it but its hitting all my windows 10 units, home and work.
