If you do not have Patch Management in place, be sure to keep up to date with the weekly set of Patches coming from Microsoft.  These are released every Tuesday and in days prior, Microsoft releases the official announcement for each update.  This gives you the chance to manually test updates on one system, before rolling-out updates across each of your systems.

If you come in and find your computer “spinning its wheels” in the morning, we recommend giving it at least 15 minutes to ensure it truly is stuck.  If the system is unable to start Windows, the only option is to power-off the computer.  Let it ‘rest’ for a minute, then power-on the system again.  If the system is able to either recover and reprocess the update OR if it’s able to properly “fail” the update and rollback the system, then you should be able to proceed into Normal Mode.  If the system cannot recover, booting into Safe Mode With Networking is most-likely the next step.

As always, if you have any questions, let us know!

I've been helping consignment storeowners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 15 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment and resale storeowners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage over 400 computer systems, servers, and websites for storeowners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of our own consignment software, so we can help storeowners even more.
