Microsoft has offered workarounds to address a mystery freezing issue that's affecting some systems after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
The update hasn't caused any widespread issues since its release a few weeks ago
, but Microsoft says it is investigating a few reports that the update is causing some devices to lock up.
"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
Microsoft is likely to roll-out a fix as part of a software update eventually, but until it's completed its investigation, it has provided steps to overcome the freezing issue.
