    Laptop won't open any programs just after the latest Windows update


    My laptop did an automatic Windows 10 update Friday and restarted but no program will open now and I have to hold the on key to restart it. I get about 15-30 second after it comes up to click on something and it might open but will stop responding shortly after. I have got task manger to open once and only AVG was running but it frozen before I could click on anything.

    I started in safe mode and removed the last window updates only to had them reinstall when it restarted.

    What at can I do? Is this a virus or malware or did the latest update do this?
    Thanks.

    You have to remove the last update.

    It was a bad one and has been pulled back by MS.

    It was KB3105208 which is the culprit.

    If you have a restore point before the update was installed, then restore it to that point.

    That's a Windows 10 Insider Preview (build 10565) update only, so if he's not on the preview that's not the culprit; he didn't say whether or not he's on the preview, so...

    If a restore point doesn't work, a repair install with an in-place upgrade may be in order.

    I have owned and used this laptop for more than a year why would I have no restore points?

    I'd check AVG compatibility for starters.
    AVG compatibility with Windows 10 | AVG

    Be aware that win 10 setup turns restore off so you do need to check this and set it back on if you want it.

    Didn't say that you wouldn't, said "if a restore point doesn't work".
