        I’ve recently been having performance issues so I did a repair install that brought me up to 2004. All good I thought.

        Then Windows tried to install KB4571756 and tried to reboot. All I got was the HP logo (HP Notebook) and the spinning wheel. And it spun and it spun and it spun.

        I was cursing, thinking I might have to do a fresh reinstall so went to bed. Eventually the next morning the Widows login screen came up. I used the MS Hide Updates tool to block KB4571756 and so far it seems to be going OK.

        Yup, That KB4571756 is a september 2020 patch which has been reported to cause issues for some. As we are at MS-DEFCON2, it’s wise to hide it in WUShowhide for now and wait ’till woody gives the all clear. What is your model of PC?
