Forced Updates Causing Endless Crash Loops

Aug 8, 2015

I think we can now all agree: Microsoft ’s hardline policy on Windows 10’s forced updates is silly. Very silly. Since launching nine days ago Windows Update has sent out an unstable graphics driver which switched off monitors, a buggy security patch which corrupted Windows Explorer and there are now a number of reports that a third update is causing Window 10 machines to crash over and over again…

The patch in question is KB3081424 (ironically enough a roll-up of bug fixes) and during its update process affected users find it fails and triggers the message: “We couldn’t complete the updates, undoing the changes.” Undoing them results in a mandatory system reboot, but as soon as the user logs back on Windows 10’s update process kicks in and tries to install KB3081424 again.

I’m sure you’re way ahead of me here, but since Windows 10 updates cannot be stopped KB3081424 tries to install over and over again which leaves systems caught in endless reboot loops.

Hibernation And Hybrid Sleep Causing PC To Crash On Waking Up

Aug 17, 2015

I had this problem when Windows 8 was new (but never had it with 8.1) and now it looks like it is back with W10.

My PC was fine up until about 2 days ago, it would go into hybrid sleep and wake with no problems but now every time I try to wake my PC the LED's, mouse and keyboard turn on but then it crashes and reboots.

I tried re-installing drivers, un-installed them, downloading them from the manufacturers websites instead of windows update but the problem remains.

I think I've narrowed down where the problem comes from and it appears to be the hybrid sleep option, disabling it and just using sleep works as expected, but if I try to use hybrid sleep....boom it happens again. I also tried enabling hibernation and that also crashes when waking up, so I assume there is a problem with the hibernation feature.

Will There Be A Way To Disable Forced Updates

Jul 24, 2015

I have a 3G USB dongle with a data cap, and i don't want Windows to download anything when I'm using this- it's only for emails on the move.

Unfortunately, this connection cannot be set as "Metered: in Windows 8/8.1, only WiFi connections have the option to set as metered.

So my question, if i upgrade to Windows 10, will i be allowed to disable updates while on this connection? Will "net stop wuauserv" work?

Another question, can i opt out of forced driver updates? I prefer updating my drivers myself, and i often use older nvidia drivers (which often work better with some of my games).

Last question, what if an update breaks my computer? Will I be allowed to blacklist it? Simply rolling back is not enough, as WU will auto-install the bad update again..

Updates :: Endless Reboot After Windows Update

Dec 17, 2015

My Windows 10 updated last night with the cryptic message "Your files are Safe" update. Then none of my programs would open.

When i rebooted I became stuck in an endless reboot cycle. I don't know how to get out of the cycle.

I get to the login page then the laptop automatically reboots itself if i don't try login. If I try to login it also reboots. So i can't get past the initial login page.

Updates :: Cannot Update - Endless Progress Of Dots

Sep 15, 2015

I wanted to check on the status of my Win 10 updates so I looked in "settings" "update and security" and clicked on update. Nothing happened, all I get is the endless progression of dots which goes on forever. Stopping and restarting the Windows update services has no effect on this situation. Looks like this situation has been going on months now.

Updates :: Forced Update Notification - Locks Up System Until Clicked

Nov 27, 2015

This has been happening for the last week. I need to know which update it rode in on so I can remove it. It is very irritating just like the Windows 8 to 8.1 forced update notification.

I have my system set to only notify me about updates, at which time I use the Update Hider diagcab to hide unwanted updates. But this is a new twist, now I am still forced to do updates from this obnoxious notification.

How would I shut this off, I disabled the Forced Windows 8 to 8.1 update notification through Group Policy Editor, would I remove this one the same way?

When it pops up, and it will pop up in the middle of my work, I can't DO anything except to click on it. This is mostly why I stick to Windows 7 because of cack like this.

Updates :: Recent Windows Update Boot Endless Cycle

Dec 13, 2015

I have a Windows 10 Home machine that recently went through a windows update and restarted. It now boots past the BIOS and goes through "Windows Updating" to "Windows Diagnosing/Repairing" boot loop. My computer uses an SSD so it is (I believe) impossible to get it to boot into safe mode. Is there a way to boot into safe mode or rollback the update somehow?

RTM Freezing Constantly And Loops / Repeats Sound

Jul 30, 2015

So the problem I've been having with Windows 10 is that it is constantly freezing on me and loops the sound over and over until it unfreezes. The computer is unresponsive and acts like it is about to bluescreen but it doesn't. After it unfreezes, it might display a notification that my graphics card driver crashed(Nvidia 353.63 windows 10 64bit). I would really like the freezing to stop and sometimes the freezing lasts up to 5 minutes or even endless!

Laptop Gets Forced Out Of Sleep?

Aug 23, 2015

At night I use my laptop, then put it to sleep -- either choosing Sleep option in power off menu, or closing laptop lid. Did this for +2 years in 8.1 without issues.

Now with 10 installed, I notice in the morning when I get up, that the lights on my laptop are all on, and it is warm to the touch. I've verified that when I put the computer down at night, it DOES go to sleep. But by morning, it is back on and out of sleep mode.

Desktop Background Being Forced

Mar 22, 2016

I just installed the BioniX Wallpaper Animator to make my desktop background a gif. It made the gif all wierd and made my computer lag so I uninstalled the software and tried to change the background but it won't let me change the background. Whenever I open settings and go to change the background it is all glitchy and kind of slow and it never changes it, I tried changing the background in control center but the same thing happened. I'm not sure what is happening but I have a feeling the software took over the background settings. I am extremely frustrated and don't know what to do. I have temporarily set the ease of access settings to remove the desktop which is the only thing that works right now but it just changes it to black.

When Using HDMI Forced To Lock Screen

Dec 25, 2015

Recently updated to Windows 10, and I watch a lot of tv through my laptop by HDMI to my HDTV. Before with Windows 7, I NEVER had an issue like this.

After somewhere around 15-20 minutes of the HDMI being plugged in and watching via my TV, the computer locks itself. It goes to a black screen and "disconnects" from the HDMI input. BUT the programs keep running, but I can't see or hear them since it doesn't go back to laptop input. To bring it back I have to click the mousepad and it brings me right to asking for my password. How do I stop the laptop from ever locking while I'm watching or streaming through HDMI? It doesn't do it when it's playing straight off the laptop...

Installation :: How To Disable Forced Updating

Jan 29, 2015

I tried the TP when it initially came out, and while it was certainly an improvement over 8.x, it had some issues that made me go back to 8.

The most glaring one was the forced update function. Oftentimes, I'd postpone the updating because I was in the middle of something, and then Windows would simply power down on me later at an equally inconvenient time. I hope the idiots in Redmond don't include this in the final product.

I found a couple of registry tweaks online that were supposed to remove the forced updating, but neither of them worked.

As always, I like to run up-to-date systems, but I prefer to decide for myself when to run updates.

Forced To Enter Password When Waking Up

Dec 18, 2015

Windows 10 was forcing me to enter a password every time the computer booted up. I ran netplwiz, unchecked the box that said password was required, entered my password twice, then I shut down the computer (not just a restart, a complete shutdown).  When I turned it back on it didn't ask for a password. But then after it was idle for awhile, when I woke it up it wanted a password again. How do I get rid of that?

OS Causing System Crashes?

Feb 10, 2016

I've got a custom built gaming pc which was running windows 7, ran perfectly for around 2 years, got offered the free upgrade to windows 10 so obviously took it..

It was around a month after the install that my computer cut off and restarted on its own, which I thought nothing of, possibly a program crashed and caused a cut-off or something. So that was that, it came back on and it was fine, for another month...

After the 2nd cut out (2 months after upgrade to windows 10) I then took it to my local computer shop, mentioned that its been cutting out ever since upgrade, and they tested the CPU, RAM etc with 3DMARK and results came back fine, and the problem is aswell that it never cut out whilst in their hands.

After being told theres nothing wrong with the hardware, they said to monitor the problem and keep them updated.

6 months down the line...

Cut outs are now happening intermittently, it can be on for 10 mins and cut out, and it can stay on for hours and cut out, but are obviously doing it a lot more frequently than at first. So I decided to try another computer shop to check the hardware, so they disassembled the computer, tested every component, and put it back together, again reported no faults with hardware. They reported that the copy of windows 10 that's installed is corrupted beyond repair, and a fresh install of windows may be required, and they asked for my product key, which after moving house I cannot find for the life of me.

I've had 4 remote access sessions with Microsoft and everything they've tried hasn't worked (one guy downloaded the ISO files and told me to install it myself because he's due for his lunch break !!!!!!

I've tried the in-place upgrade, and after this, my comuter tried to start 3 ties, then came up with an error saying windows is having a problem loading files, so I done the re-install whilst keeping files.

Again this hasn't worked, is there anything else that can be done other than fresh installing windows as I cant find the product key!

Installation :: Endless Start Loop

Jul 4, 2015

Have just installed 10 on a spare drive and installed that drive into my Sandy Bridge and the machine is now going through an endless loop of start up.

I can hear it make some sort of noise as if something wants to go and I have again tried the machine with the old 7 install drive and the same thing is happening.

The other thing is I am not getting a RAM beep or the BIOS to come up on the Gigabyte board (DEL) have jumpered the reset pins for the BIOS but still no BIOS or for that matter any graphics.
