Hello Guys hope you are doing well

I’m back on business it has been quite tough months out my mother country, but finally, I settled up a new life in the United Kingdom

I’m out for now as per Windows SCCM  projects, but I will be updating this weekly or each 3 days with new tips, guides & stuff mainly now focused into tier2/1 support

So let’s crack on then

Have you seen this error? It may happen after a corrupted installation update

The outcome of this is translated  into annoying loop messages asking due to restart the computer,  here is the rough solution to this but before that, just remember:

save a security copy about your windows registry before making ANY changes !!!

*** administrator privileges required ***

  1. Open Regedit.exe ( execute regedit.exe)
  2. Navigate to  “HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/WindowsUpdate/Auto Update”
  3. “Select reboot required key folder” and delete all the entries
  4.  Reboot the computer

should sort out your problem !!


See you soon!
