The first major Windows 10 update has brought with it major concerns about how future fixes will behave for the new OS. Several users are still reportedly stuck in reboot loop.
There is yet to be suggested solution for KB3081424, the cumulative update for Windows 10 that brings along a number of bug fixes for the operating system. It has failed on some machines — and when this happens Windows 10 automatically reverts to a previous version.
But herein lies the problem.
Since Windows 10 updates are automatic, and compulsory, the operating system tries to install this dodgy update again. And again, and again, and again.
As previously reported, some users have experienced the update getting to a certain percentage before failing. Uninstalls take a long time when Windows 10 is stuck in reboot loop like this. And since, Windows 10 updates cannot be turned off, the problem has exacerbated.
It will be interesting to see whether Microsoft will change their strategy of making updates mandatory, or whether the company will at least give control to users on when to update.
The policy has its merit, and is intended to make Windows 10 more secure for the general public.
But continual issues like this, or even more severe ones than this reboot loop, will create more problems than it solves, this much is a given.
And while users have identified a workaround on Microsoft’s help forums, not everyone is comfortable tinkering with the registry. For most users, though, it’s a wait until the software titan releases an official fix for this issue.
