Hi, the following (Windows 7) update is failing - and when I install, it causes a seemingly infinite startup repair loop, which I broke by entering safe mode and cancelling the update.

 

September 10, 2019—KB4516065 (Monthly Rollup)

How do I diagnose and fix whatever's causing the issue? Or what do you need from me to help?

This is the only other person who i could find that had the problem too... but i am sure there are others.

MS Update in August failed to install KB4512506 and this week failed to install both KB4516065 and KB4474419. All went well until my Win 7 restarted and then went into Startup repair tool which eventually allowed the machine to start up normally, tho without the important updates. This type of nonsense from Microsoft updates happened a few years ago but suddenly started working well—until August of this year. I have now disabled updates given these problems and the fact that, come January all support will go away anyway. Perusing the MS help forums, etc. about this problem is fruitless—few answers and some much more complicated solutions for something so important that should work easily for those of us of limited computer savvy. Irritating, to say the least.

I'll see what else I can come up with as I am unable to offer any ideas presently.

Thanks

The August Rollup failed for me in the same way, so I hid it, and now it's gone, I'm assuming that the newer roll up superseded it. I'm still searching for answers, thanks for looking.
