Windows Update Fail To Install
Once logged in, files explorer is gone – cannot launch it even manually, it just does not exist – many other tools are gone – network settings are gone – message pops that bad token is referenced…. I am not sure about the right update version, but it stopped at 82% with that blue screen and sad emoticon. After it restarts itself, there is the windows logo at boot, then a black screen with rotating dots remain forever.
Windows 10 has done a lot of updates the last couple of weeks. As of Tonight explorer has started crashing as soon as its opened, any program that opens explorer from within also crashes soon as explorer opens. Pinnacle studio 22 crashes randomly, audacity wont open at all and the computer takes about 10 minutes to boot up.
Stop Windows 10 From Automatically Updating Your Pc
Based on the number of problems it causes, this update is one of the worst Windows 10 updates to date. If all else fails, Win will release in two weeks. If this cumulative update keeps failing, just ignore it and manually upgrade yourself to 1803 when it comes out. (With a pending cumulative update Wikidll, I don’t know if a feature update will come through normally) The upgrade process will likely fix whatever has bugged out Windows Update at the moment for you.
This way you can hold off getting updates the moment Microsoft rolls them out, monitor the news for a bit to see if any major errors crop up, then manually do the update yourself. Microsoft hasn’t yet addressed this serious problem, so the best solution for now is to uninstall the update (scroll down for our tips on how to fix broken Windows 10 updates). Now, some of these files apparently end up in the Recycle Bin, so it’s vital that you check to see if your files are there before emptying the bin.

I have a gen 8 i5, 8 GB ram, msi gb video card. I need help my desktop pc and my laptop crash I can’t reboot my pc and laptop I had win10 OS and I have i3 and i7 Intel. This is the worst Microsoft update I’ve ever encountered. The first thing you can do to avoid getting the above update problems and more is to take over the control when your Windows 10 updates.
I would very much like to do that, but haven’t seen a choice. Every “features” update results in hours of computer use loss and struggles to get it back again. The arbitrary brutal resenting of configurations is a common practice of most windows 10 updates. My Dell Vostro crashed two days ago, just as the long weekend started. I assume it has to do with the last Windows 10 update.
I’ll grant you that many are scared of the word “Linux” thanks to the FUD spread by tech writers, pundits and “experts” that to use Linux, the user must be fluent in command line. I wonder how many users have actually done a bare metal install of Windows? Bare metal installation of any of the 20 most popular Linux distros is much simpler than a bare metal installation of Windows. For one, when installing Linux there are no repeated re-boots.
People stick with Windows even though they complain because it runs the applications they use. Installing Linux scares many and those who tried it probably either got frustrated with the installation and setup, or they discovered they couldn’t find suitable replacement apps for the ones they ran on Windows. Its why I always read Linux lovers brag about the OS but hardly ever on the apps. In reality the apps define what OS you run, and people care less about the OS just as long as those apps work. Windows users unite, you have nothing to lose but your crappy O/S updates.
