    Optional Update KB3172605

    Went ahead and installed this optional update this evening. My PC got stuck at the "Preparing to configure Window. Do not turn off your computer" screen.

    Had to boot in Safe Mode and do a System Restore.

    Just wanted to let people know. It might be a good idea to do a complete backup (image) of the disk before installing the update, just in case System Restore fails for some reason...

    Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
    Odd but it is always recommended to create a system image before downloading and installing any updates :)
    Most of use here use Macrium reflect free
    Imaging with free Macrium

    The issue you refer to is not on the Known issues though :/
    Thanks for letting us all know :)
