    Another continual reboot problem for some with KB 3194496

    There's a "Workaround" posted in the comments section that seems to work for most.

    This week, Microsoft pushed out another cumulative update and reports of installation problems are widespread. While I donít know how many users are impacted, based on comments sent to me, itís certainly widespread enough that this is well beyond an isolated issue.

    The update that is causing the problem, KB3194496, is not installing correctly for users. The update, when it does fail, is causing some machines to restart, often multiple times, as Windows 10 attempts to remove the failed update. Worse, after a restart, the file will attempt to install again resulting in the loop of failed install, reboot, re-install and failure again.

    Some users have reported that the cumulative update did install correctly on the second or third attempt while others have said that it fails every time.

    I, for one, had no problem with KB3194496. It installed on September 29 on my computers. I noticed no multiple restarts. I did however read that others were having difficulties.
