Important December patch for Windows-10: Unfortunately, there is a hook

A lot of Windows 10 users are waiting for this update: For around a week, thousands of users of the operating system were not on the Internet. On December Patch-Day, Microsoft finally brought the update – but that also makes problems now.

With the December patch-day, Microsoft updates the current Windows 10 Anniversary Update to build number 14393.576. The required cumulative patch KB3206632 contains only bug fixes – one was, however, eagerly expected by thousands of users worldwide: the fix for the Internet access problem that plagued Windows 10 users for about a week. So there is the important patch, but the update is now making problems. Unfortunately, this cumulative update on the computers of some users does not stop the installation.

On Reddit, users report that the update stops at 95%, causing an almost complete disk utilization – the PC can not even be used for other things in time. Other reports show that the process is apparently completed with a reboot, but the update stops at 0%. Others report that their machine has been at 100 percent for hours.

Currently is not clear what caused the behavior. In addition, it is also not ensured that anyone affected can install this patch. Because Microsoft recommends only the standard procedures for network problems, in order to be able to download the update afterwards. But the tips on many computers do not seem to help. At CHIP, an employee could reactivate his Internet access by restoring the system.

If your Windows-10 computer denies access to the Internet, you can download the update at CHIP via another PC with Internet access, copy and run it via USB to the affected Windows-10 computer. Then only hope that the installation will be completed. As soon as Microsoft offers a fix for the patch problem, we will inform you.
