Just upgraded machine to Windows 10 Pro. Every time I reboot it asks me to restart. It will not force a reboot or anything but it is annoying. I have tried to look for any hung updates or anything but i cleared all of those to no avail. Also looked in registry for "profileimagepath" entries as recommended on a number of forums for forced reboot loop issues. I cannot find anything about this anywhere. Any suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Its sounds like you have an update that is trying to install but failing. Have you updated, and updated again, and again until Windows reports there are no more updates? Don't forget to restart between update batches. 

 

It could also be a driver that is glitching or become corrupt. Update all drivers from the PC manufacturers website. If you have any aftermarket upgrades like a video card use that manufacturers website for drivers.
