Installing security updates on Patch Tuesdays has become some sort of practicing an extreme sport; waiting to see what will happen after booting gives you such an adrenaline rush.
Then I don't know. We might have to wait until Microsoft fixes this.Alright but the service is already stopped.
So assumedly, it is drivers specific to your particular hardware that are conflicting.This update downloaded and was installed in my organization. After the reboot several applications would no longer work. Excel 2016, Powerpoint 2016, Firefox (Any Version), Adobe Acrobat and the reader. The only way we were able to resolve the issue was to uninstall the update and postpone updates until a later time. We also discovered that if you start windows in safe mode the applications would start without issue. We also tested on a plain jane installation of windows 10 v1703 with just those apps installed and results were the same indicating it was not a third party piece of software that was causing the problem.
That's fine and dandy if you can get the screen to come up. But I can't even get the screen to show.
Try by downloading installer from Microsoft Update Catalog and running it manually. I had the same problem and I really don't know how I installed the update. I've restored an older system image and ran Windows Update. After a while, Windows were updated successfully.Tried again for a second time... Failed again
Any suggestions on how to get it to work?
Well done MS. You've certainly excelled in wasting my time!!
Tried your one this morning - that failed too!
Don't forget to pause updates. If you don't pause updates, Windows Update will continue to download the same package and try to install it over and over again.Tried your one this morning - that failed too!
Looks like most of the security updates installed so will leave it for now - ain't got time to mess about with it at the moment as an afternoon on the terraces at the footy and drinking beer comes first!!
The most effective in case M$ tries to restart or enable any stopped service such as WU, is this:Or for the most effective option a user can just disable Windows Update service and learn to install W10 updates manually.
