windows 10 update reboot loop

I am running Windows 10 and the forced update is failing.

It does not install the updates and keeps rebooting every 15 of so minutes.

I can delay the reboot a couple of times and then it forces a reboot.

Updates to be installed:

KB3141032

KB3114900

KB890830

Upgrade to Windows 10 Home, version 1511, 10586

Computer is functional and stable (unlike the mouse which has started misbehaving - sometimes...)

The OS updated froze at 76% - configuring drivers 4%.

Had to power down and when it failed to reboot - used the reset button.

Unit came up functional with only 214 registry issues...not bad considering.

Please close this.

The solution (found quite by accident) was to uninstall IE 11 and Edge - then re-install them. This appears to have caused the OS to believe that Windows 10 was not valid and while the reboot loop was cured I now had to get MS Support to re-validate my OS. 

In conclusion, all is well now.
