    Issues after automatic update(internet/no lock screen password prompt)

    As it says in the title I am having two issues with Windows Ten, both coming after an update on the 6th of October. The more pressing and annoying is that after the update, whenever my computer goes into sleep mode (closing laptop or simply a longer than expected work break) my computer will wake back up, but when I press any key to go to the password prompt for login, the prompt never appears, and I am forced to restart, oftentimes losing some research I have been doing (I previously had OneTab, but I deleted it in the process of troubleshooting the second issue ).

    The second issue has a temporary fix, but due to the high restart frequency caused by the first issue, has become more prevalent. The issue is that after any windows update, my internet across all browsers is runs painfully slow. After hours of searching and trying suggestions, I stumbled across uninstalling my wifi driver and reinstalling with a reboot. This worked extremely well, and my download speed went from <1Mbps to 30Mbps. The issue is that whenever windows decides to do a small update, I am forced to go through the same process, and Windows seems to enjoy small updates. I am wondering if there is anything I can do to avoid this in the future.

    Thanks for any help in advance!

    Hi, regarding the first, you might try this:
    Require Sign-in on Wakeup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Then by way of routine checks: From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

    From an admin command prompt run
    sfc /scannow

    and report results.
