    Recent Windows 10 update softlocks PC

    So, basically, their is a recent windows 10 update, which is updating my Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributle 11.0.50727. However, it's causing my computer to softlock. You see, when my computer reboots to install the updates, it gets suck while booting back up with what I like to call the "White spinning wheel of death". It's a completely black screen, with a white spinning wheel at the bottom, windows does not progress past this screen. I've had to restore my computer twice now, back to '10/26/2016', and it's getting rather annoying. I don't want to have to do this every time it updates, so, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? The only thing that I can think of is that, recently, I made some changes to the registry to forcibly turn off Cortana. Perhaps something from that is conflicting with the update? I don't know.
