I have an HP Pavillion laptop that was originally a Windows 7 Laptop that we installed Windows 10 on when the upgrade was available for free. It has worked just fine until the Anniversary update came out. We have tried a number of times to install the update on this computer. I have done System File Check and the DISM run and have done it until I have gotten 3 clean "No Integrity Violations found" answers back. I have run AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes on it and it is clean. I uninstalled Norton 360 thinking that it was interfering with the update. This time I used the Windows Update Assistant and the machine went completely through the process and I even had it restarted to complete the updates. I saw it go to about 39% complete, restart and get as far as 79%, then it restarted and for the past 2 hours I have had a black screen with the processing circle of light spinning at the bottom of the screen. This is where this machine has gotten every time I try to install this update. In the past I have tried to let this run overnight to see if it would complete. In fact one time we left it run for over 24 hours and nothing happened. Just the spinning circle at the bottom of the screen on the black background.
I am so frustrated with this. I am once again forcing it to shut off and restore the previous version of Windows. I don't know what to try. I just checked and I did turn untick the Turn on fast startup" option in the Power settings. I do not have a lot of confidence that it will matter. My desktop has that setting ticked and it installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update without a hitch. But I thought I would try it. So before I go through this update one more time I am asking if anyone knows of anything else I should try?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
