Windows 10 update glitch throws some computers into a constant reboot loop… which has caused some concern with regards to the new “forced update” method that Microsoft is using for Windows 10. The issue is caused on some computers where a registry error causes the update to fail, and the update to remove itself (thus 3 or 4 reboots in a row). Because Windows 10 (Home Version) machines are forced to update this can happen again and again every few days – which can be very frustrating for users.
