    My HP Dv7 6143cl reboots to install update KB3074674 then the update fails and uninstalls itself. Then it got stuck in a bootloop and I had to do a forced shutdown. It now boots up correctly but without update installed. This is the very reason these updates should not be forced and we should be able to decide when and what updates to install.
    I have delayed the update for now. Because we can not chose which update to install I can not install any other updates after this like defender without installing this update with it. Please let us know if it installs properly on your PC.

    "This is the very reason these updates should not be forced and we should be able to decide when and what updates to install."


    I agree, but unless you have an Enterprise version of Windows 10, the ability to actually opt out of updates is not an option for you. That goes for the Windows 10 Pro users also. Home Edition users have absolutely no say at all in what or even when updates get installed onto their systems. Windows Pro Edition users have only a little more control over receiving updates than the Home Edition users do, but not very much, seeing how Pro Edition users can only temporarily postpone updates. However, they have no more control over what update eventually get installed than Home users do.


    Enterprise Edition user can not only postpone updates but can refuse them altogether just like previous version of Windows users could in with the updates that got offered to them. The only concerns about what control end-users have over what gets installed on their devices that corporation like Microsoft seem to be interested in are the concerns of other corporations.


    The little guy or the individual end-user will simply serve as test subjects to help Microsoft make sure that their enterprise customers experience remain well informed and uneventful, as the data on these updates performed on the rest of our systems are aggregated, and used to reassure Enterprise users of their problem-free ease of use and installation onto their similar systems.
