Thank you Jefferson. I have not responded until now because I wanted to be certain I did everything I can to follow your advice. Unfortunately, nopoint is working. The bottom line is that also though I produced a brand-new account, logged in with it, andlet the update installation go ahead, the very same freeze developed.

Here"s what I did to attempt to follow your instructions:

I first tried to develop a new user account as you directed. When I complied with the steps andclicked the "add someone else to this PC" connect, Iwas offered the alternative to enter an email attend to but then NOTthe ability to form a user name, password, or password hint. WhenI entered an email deal with that wasnot registered already via, it provided me an error message stating as a lot. WhenI tried clicking the "I don"t have this person"s authorize in information" attach, I wasdirected to put in an e-mail address, password, and also date of birth.So, what I did was usage one more account that I had establiburned through in the past however never before used to log in with before. I then logged in on my computer system via that account and waited two days. Nopoint seemed to occur, so I hoped whatever was addressed. I thenlogged earlier in yesterdaymorning with my original/primary account infoand also left the computer system alone while I went to work. Unfortunately, once I came house last nightthe computer wasfrozen as prior to. I recovered my previous version of Windows, logged ago in under my main account, and the update process started anywhere aget (here arethe particular updates detailed on the upday screen: Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB4056254) and Feature upday to Windows 10, version 1709).

I then developed an totally new account last night. I logged in with it, let the upday process start, and also waited. The computer froze. I then rebegan in order to reclaim my previous version of Windows, logged in ONLY with my new account, and let the update go ahead again. Same result.

I do not recognize if this is a clue or not, yet please note that once my computer system freezes it does so through a empty, dark screen - I then have to forcibly restart the computer, which results in the blue update display via the spinning wheel and the portion standing indicator. This display then freezes roughly 85%, at which suggest I carry out one more forcible restart in order to trigger the restoration of my previous variation of Windows.

I hope you have even more suggestions, as my computer system is basically unusable now for even more than a couple of moments between freezes.
