    Yes, I tried this too. Couldn't see the KB update in my list said to be guilty of this problem. Not that it matters, it would just force install it again anyway?
    This one, for the "safe" Repair Install, as posted by Dalchina in #4.

    Yes, sorry, I didn't phrase it right. The links you gave me advised of refresh and restore etc, but refresh loses your apps.

    So I wasn't absolutely sure exactly which procedure is the one I want for my needs.

    And, quite honestly, still ain't? Which link do I want for the exact 'in-place upgrade repair install'?

    Thank you.
    The link I quoted to you. Here it is again... and to be sure you go to the right one, here's what the start of it looks like...

    There's no such thing as a 'forced install' in my opinion- if you buy Home, you get what you pay for- updates delivered by MS. If you buy Pro, you get a measure of control in various ways. Caveat emptor. However I agree- the update process should be much less painful than it is for some.

    You can hide a particular update (same terminology as in Win 7) - there's a tutorial explaining how, or use Windows Update Minitool (free).

    Maybe you didn't see that I had already posted your post link and your links again. Well, he has it 3 or 4 times now. Hopefully he'll get the right one.

    So to sum it all up a repair install initiated from inside Windows is my best bet to fix this?

    Yes, I do believe that is what we have been recommending. We have posted the appropriate tutorial.
    No guarantees, of course.

    I've decided to hold off on it until/unless I have another crash. I have done a few things to tweak windows and I hope they resolve the issue. If not, I'll resort to this nightmare :)

    Here's how to (most of the time) avoid having to spend time seeking solutions, technical help, and not being able to use your PC.

    Use disk imaging routinely. As we constantly recommend to users, you can restore a disk image - which could be all the partitions comprising Windows- relatively quickly, painlessly as a routine procedure- without technical help.

    Can help you recover from a failed disk (new disk needed); ransomware, unbootable or uncorrectable situations to a previous working state. Also acts as a full backup.

    E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + external disk for disk image set storage.

    An in-place upgrade repair install is a fairly straightforward procedure, but it won't correct everything. It is however, like any upgrade, a major change. Thus we recommend using disk imaging to protect your PC here as well.
