After a Windows 10 update, my computer, every time I restart, will stay in a restarting loop. It will never change. It will stay like this for days, animating.

Restarting Screen

Oddly, if I ever click, it goes to a black screen with the cursor.

Black w cursor

It never restarts. It stays saying "restarting". I have to force power it off, every day

If you cannot, please use a windows 10 installation media and enter the windows Recovery mode, then start the command line. Try the following to uninstall the update and check if the issue disappeared.
