The cumulative update of Windows 10 KB4507453 published by Microsoft on July 9 would have caused a restart notification loop on some of the computers on which it was installed.
This problem was reported by Windows users on several websites and computer support forums across the Web, all describing exactly the same problem – they were asked to restart their devices to complete the installation of the KB4507453 update even if it was already installed.
While several users of Windows 10 version 1903 and Windows Server version 1903 would have already been affected by this problem, Microsoft has not yet publicly confirmed the problem with the restart notification loop.
- Updates of a problem with an inclined world that some Mixed Reality users can see after connecting their headsets.
- Updates to visual quality issues that some users may encounter when using Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headsets with Steam® VR content.
- Updates a problem with the BitLocker encryption mode.
- Updates to improve security when using Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, wireless technologies and Microsoft Office products.
Improvements and corrections
This update includes quality improvements. Some of the most important changes are:
- Fixed a problem that could cause BitLocker to go into recovery mode when BitLocker is deployed at the same time as the installed updates.
- Fixed a problem that could cause Mixed Reality users to see a sloping world after connecting their headsets.
- Fixes visual quality issues that some users may have seen with Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headsets and Steam®VR content.
- Security updates for Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Server, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Kernel, Microsoft HoloLens, Internet
- Explorer, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Virtualization, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Microsoft Graphics Component, Microsoft Edge and Windows Cryptography.
Everything will then work as expected, with Windows 10 usually restarting on the desktop. However, the same cumulative update will appear in Windows Update within minutes after you logged into Windows and requested a restart.
Regardless of the computer’s restart frequency, KB4507453 always returns and requests another restart. Microsoft has yet to recognize the problem. Other versions of Windows 10 that received cumulative updates on July 9 do not have the same problems.
As Microsoft has not yet confirmed the error, there is no recommended workaround solution, although users who have encountered the problem have given some tips that could help you avoid the prompt to restart the device.
One of them is easier than you think. If it requests a system reboot, the update will display this message in Windows Update. However, most users go to the Start menu to restart. Instead, you should try to restart the system directly from the command prompt in Windows Update.
For some reason, this seems to prevent the cumulative update from requesting a restart after reconnecting to the office, but it’s not even something that works for everyone.
