Note: A fix is now available and has been scheduled or is currently being released to the public. The fix is KB 3081436.
More than 180 people ( this number comes from these troubleshooting reports), have had issues with a Windows 10 update.
Microsoft released Windows 10 KB3081424 update as a general cumulative bug fix. Nothing was expected to majorly fail but to the surprise of users worldwide, the update turned their PCs into an endless loop cycle. The computer begins installing the update as normal, and suddenly the PC keeps restarting and restarting and restarting.The update is never installed successfully.
Needless to say, there is a lot of frustration from Windows 10 users. This is Microsoft’s first update since it released the OS back in late July.
UPDATE AND FIX: The Guardian reports that there may be a potential fix in theory. No link or steps have been announced, but the error seems to stem from a rogue registry entry, which causes the malfunction of the update. Microsoft is expected to release a hotfix soon. We will update the article as soon as we hear word.
UPDATE: Update has been fixed. Forbes reports the fix will not only eradicate the nasty reboot glitch, but it “also resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft graphic components, the .NET Framework that allows elevation of privilege and the Mount Manager that could allow elevation of privilege.”
ISSUE: Rogue Windows Registry key

Microsoft has heard user gripes and is seeking to rectify Windows 8 complaints. The Software Giant announced on Tuesday that it will release a substantial update to Windows 8, internally codenamed “Blue.”
The Wall Street Journal reports that the update will be available later this year in time for the holidays. Windows President Tami Reller claims Microsoft is planning to showcase Blue to the public.
“Microsoft executives will make two sets of relevant disclosures in coming weeks … First up soon will be details about pricing, packaging and an official name.”

Reller also said that a second Blue update is expected before June. Microsoft experts and enthusiasts were betting on the first update before June… we now know that there will be two updates, the second occurring near BUILD conference. The final Blue will be released to consumers near holiday season.
