    Windows extremely slow after anniversary update.

    So I held back on updating to the anniversary update for a few weeks, but then starting having some problems with sleep and power, so i downloaded the update tool and updated to version 1607. My problems were solved, but now today, a few days later, I suddenly have many issues with performance. To start, it takes about 10 minutes to boot windows, about 90 seconds to log on, and about another 5 minuets until the icons pop up on the taskbar and there is no more loading icon on the cursor and i can actually operate the system. Before the update, i would boot in 5-6 seconds, and experience no slowness or lag when i log on, and i have an ssd that has a 400mbps write and 250 read.(Other specs will be below). Even after a using the system booted up for a while, programs are slow to load, and things like icons for files take 15-30 seconds to load. I unfortunately was running out of space on my ssd, and had to remove the previous installations of windows with disk cleanup, so i cannot go back to the previous build. I currently have no updates available, and am on build 14393.187. What can I do? I turned off insider build for now. I have a backed up version of the media create tool from before the anniversary update, if i used that to do the "upgrade" style of installation, rather than the "custom", will it touch my files or programs? This is really unacceptable for this to be released like this, making my computer much less usable, and I know I shouldn't have deleted the windows.old, but something like this shouldn't have happened, especially a few days after it running fine. Thanks.
    System specs:
    FX 8320 @ 4.7ghz
    MSI 970 gaming
    ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1070
    650w EVGA NEX PSU
    16gb Gskill Ripjaws X DDR3

    EDIT: I also started having BSODs, and now that I think of it, it all started when I was playing a game, blue screened, then it was slow.

    I have noticed that many things may have been resetted to defaults after AU. And this includes drivers. Start by checking these.
