1. Install fails

If you can’t install this update, well you’re not the only one. Sometimes the install process gets stuck or fails with various error codes such as 0x80070002.

KB4056890 has now failed to install four times and the last two times there has been an error 0x80070002. The registry entry is what another MS site says it should be and the anti-virus software is kts2016 (Kaspersky Total Security).

2. Windows won’t start

Some users were unable to properly start their Windows session after installing the latest Windows 10 version 1607 update. The only solution to fix this problem was to perform a system restore.

Just in case system restore fails to work for you, the guide below may help you:
