Windows Central Question
The Windows 10 Anniversary update automatically installed on my HP Laptop computer. Following the update installation when the computer restarted to activate the changes, several minutes of activity was followed by the loading symbol just circling and circling. This went on for hours with a gray or black screen and only the loading symbol. In order to stop the never ending loading, I had to manually shutdown the computer. Upon restart, the same thing happened. At the second manual shutdown and restart, Windows went to the previous version and all was good until the anniversary update was again automatically installed. This process has been repeated three times. The only differences being that after the second time I deleted the update files in hopes that new update files would not be corrupt. Still no luck.
