    Stuck on update loop

    I am not sure where else to post this I am having a huge problem for a while now with my windows 10 desktop it will go into update mode but about half the update it says "we couldnt complete the updates undoing changes" and restarts my pc, it does this in an infinite loop and I cannot access safe mode no matter what I do, tried pressing f11 (boot options) and it goes into a screen that asks for a password but it does not accept my admin password and locks me out after 3 tries. So I really dont know what to do I cant access my files every internet guide I found so far that promises to fix this either assumes I am running a dual boot system ( I am not) or using a laptop. Any suggestions?

    Hi, if you boot your PC from a Win 10 installation disk, click Repair your computer, and navigate through the options, can you use a System Restore point?

    (Restore points will only be available if at some time you enabled system restore).

    Do you have any form of disk image e.g. Windows Backup and Restore, Acronis TI, Macrium Reflect...?
