    Hi It's patch Tuesday again and again there are problems. I would like to share my experience with you and hope this helps some one. I don't know why MS has made these dang updates so hard to down load. Patch Tuesday down loaded, then required a restart. I did a restart. My PC restarted several times and then sit with the little circle of spinning dots for two hours. I'm sure all have seen that before. I waited two hours and then done a hard shut down and then powered up.
    Got the same spinning dots. This time I hit CTRL+ALT+DEL. Blue screen came on with the percentage of upgrade and completed with in seconds. My conclusion is that the updates get hung up and a hard shut down is required. Any way the above is the procedure that worked for me.
    Here are the patch Tuesday updates. Please let me know if you have any problems down loading them! I hope this helps someone here on the forum!

    I'm updating 2 laptops & 1 mobile phone (lumia1520) & have experienced zero issues. I'm sure some have had issues, but, the majority ???

    Interesting poll, should someone decide to launch it.

    I just report what my experience has been with windows updates. I'm glad that you haven't had any bad experiences. I think it would make a great poll. I didn't post this for the majority who aren't having issues. I created it for those users that are having problems. I'm not a newbie in the computer world! Tuesday was patch Tuesday, so lets see if we have any members experience the issue I had with the patch!
    Thanks for your reply!

    Why launch a poll? I rather read this thread as the responses would be device specific.

    Hi Guys and Gals! I don't have a clue why some users have problems and others don't. I have a 5 year old Toshiba laptop. Maybe that's why the updates give me problems. I just posted here to tell users how I got the latest patch Tuesday to down load. I can guarantee you this much that my PC is well maintained and this is not my first rodeo. I have been around the block a couple of times and I'm not a stranger to help forums.
    Here's a little tip I have used before and it worked for me. This is a fix by a well know author and is my hero and idol.(Shawn Brink)

    Hmmm.. My Asus is ancient too.. X44h core i3 etc etc.. Don't think it's got to do so much with the actual age of the device bit rather the OEM providing compatable drivers if on non standard hardware..

    Hi @ Charles! You're probably right on about the age. Here's a good read about Windows updates. I'm sure you are a power PC user and familiar with all this, but maybe other members here might enjoy this link! I'm thinking this thread might draw a lot of attention and I'm hoping for more replies like yours.

    PS I have spent a lot of time researching this subject, and there are many problems for users of W10 and their updates, which most of us can't avoid.We can put them off for awhile, but sooner or latter Microsoft is going to force them on us. That might turn out to be a good thing. I guess time will tell.

    Hi Gals and Guys Here's my programs. Doubt if this helps! I can also post my power options if you want. I will tell you that I have my PC set to never sleep. I'm sure there is something that causes me grief on the cumulative updates but I haven't figured it out. The anniversary update caused me the same problem as this last Tuesday patch caused me. This time I got a little smarter and got the update to install by powering down, then powering up and then using CTRL+ALT+DEL. I got lucky
    I can probably attach any information you ask for! It would be super if we could find out why this happens to some of us, and not others. I doubt if the fix is the same for everyone. It never is! It's late. I'll see you tomorrow! I'm really enjoying this forum.

    My 5+ year old laptop had no issues with the update but my wife's Dell 2-in-1 is having the same update issue with being stuck on a blank screen with the little spinning wheel. Tried the Ctrl+Alt+DEl thing but it didn't work. Any other suggestions?

    Hi You might try a sfc /scannow and DISM. You could try a update reset. Did it update to the anniversary addition? Here's some links! I would let it run at least 6-8 hours!

    Hi here's link for the anniversary update problems!
    PS I have read that the ultimate fix is a clean install. That's pretty drastic and not a guarantee!
    PS This is a excellent link from Windows Central with a lot of good information!

    My SP3 has been continually upgraded from the original windows 8 and it's gotten better each time. Anniversary update in august was rough but since then the cumulative updates seemed to have smooth things over.

    Though after 2 years now, I'm thinking maybe I should do a full refresh.

    No "new" issues induce that we know of, yet, but haven't updated all my equipment. Still dealing w/multiple issues inflicted on several PCs when AU was applied, subsequent cumulative updates have done absolutely nothing to resolve which could mean a complete refresh may be in order, not a happy thought.

    I only had the recent issue that affected people who were on the insider rings and then left them. They weren't able to update to the .221 build. However, MS released a script that fixed it. Other than that none of my computers or family computers had issues.

    Hi Glad to see all this action and all the great responses to this issue Here's a good link from Microsoft about a clean installation of windows and some good information about the installation. I'm sure you all are aware of how important is is now days to keep a current back up image of your OS with a 3rd party image program like Macrium Reflect; but I never miss a opportunity to preach about this subject. I have 7 or 8 images on a seagate external drive. I can be up and running even with a hard drive failure in minutes. I can also mount that image as a virtual drive and copy and paste. If You haven't taken time to learn how to use a back up program, you should learn today. That's my sermon for today. Back up your OS !
