Beware Windows 10 April 2018 Update Is Bricking PCs And Keeping Them From Booting

Windows 10 April 2018 update might be doing more harm than good. While people might have the urge to update to the latest version of Windows as soon as possible and that is the advised way to go in order to stay safe from vulnerabilities but it seems that the Windows 10 April 2018 update is one that you might want to skip for now.

Multiple users are reporting that the Windows 10 April 2018 update is bricking PCs and that is not the only issue. Some users are reporting the Windows 10 April 2018 update installed perfectly fine but on rebooting the system they see a Black screen, which is something that you do not want. It seems that the only way to get rid of the issue is to revert back to a restore point. According to one Reddit user:

“The update is bricking my computer. After the update (KB4103721) download and installs, after restarting my computer will hang on a black screen and do nothing. The only way to fix it is to restore my PC to a previous restore point, where the PC will boot up normally again. Automatic Updates then installed the update again and the issue returned. After a restore point, my PC booted again,”

It seems that Microsoft does not know what the problem is being caused by. According to the official KB page:

“Microsoft is not currently aware of any issues with this update.”
