    Windows 10 (Unhappy) Anniversary Freezes Computers

    Microsoft revealed yesterday that they have received a small number of reports (translation = a large number of reports) that their Anniversary Update (translation = new Windows image) freezes your computer if you use a combination of SSD and HDDs. The freezing symptoms, apart from you not being able to do anything, include that old Windows 10 favorite, 100% disk utilization. You are advised to revert to your previous Windows 10 build, noting that you only have 10 days to do this. Or move all your data from your massive HDD to your really small SDD.

    Patient: Doctor, it hurts when I do ::this::!

    Doctor: Well, then don't do ::that::!

    Seriously, kids, how many times will you allow Redmond to cock up your systems before all y'all say "ENOUGH!"?

    In case you’re one of the unhappy Windows 10 users who has discovered that the system freezes after performing the Anniversary Update, we’ve got a partially good news for you: Microsoft issued a fix, but it’s only temporary.

    Microsoft has received a small number of reports of Windows 10 freezing after installing the Anniversary Update on systems with the operating system stored on a solid-state drive (SSD) and apps and data stored on a separate drive. This issue does not occur when starting Windows 10 in Safe Mode,” Microsoft said on its support forum.

    Fixing the problem is simple: rolling back to an older but stable Windows 10 version. You might not like it, but it’s the way to go.

    Until a final fix is available, Microsoft has for affected users two ways of downgrading the operating system.

    If they’ve installed the Anniversary Update less than 10 days ago, they’ll be able to sign into Windows 10 using Safe Mode and then move apps and data to the same drive as the operating system. After that, they can revert back to the previous version of Windows running on the machine

    If you haven't been able to apply the update because your computer freezes every time you sign in and you have a second Administrator account do the following:

    1- Restart your computer.

    2- Sign in with the second Administrator account.

    3- Open Settings.

    4- Click on Update & security.

    5- Click on Windows Update.

    6- Click the Check for update button and make sure your system downloads the KB3176938.

    7- Click Restart now.
