    Just make a restore Drive (flash drive) and reload win 10


    Hi, I've had win10 about 2 months now and mail app wouldn't work and weather app stopped after the first day, this week Photo app stopped and usb 3 port locked up and some games graphics were slow. I made a recovery drive on a flash drive and reloaded win 10, nearly every thing came good and then I downloaded new drivers from the OEM like Nvidia and the rest of my faults came good. This involved reloading all my pictures and music and software, it took a day but was worth it!

    It seems to me that the updates from MS don't take hold until you do a reload. I received updates several times but nothing changed so try a reload of win 10 and get new drivers for what's not working.
    My win 10 is near perfect, I get mail ok and my games graphics are good , I do TS2016 on an i5 laptop ok.

    Hope this helps and Happy Computing, Regards Hermy

    You may be better off doing an in place repair install to avoid reinstalling all your programs - see Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Sounds good but I have already done the job, and the restore options don't include saving files, might be good if MS give a file save option in the restore process.
