    Things broken after Anniversary update

    Hello, just got myself a cold shower, because I was so angry that I was yelling at the computer. And that never happened to me. After updating to build 1607 (had to wait until it completed so I could go to sleep - went to bed at 4:25 am) notification appeared and said Daemon Tools Ultra will not work on this computer. OK, I thought, I will just go uninstall it and get myself other version. But what? When I tried to run UNINSTALL program, notification again: This will not work on this computer. I froze because I thought it was bad joke. So I ran it again. Same note. Again. And again. Same result. OK, this is going to be bad.
    Next what I saw is - Where the hell is my flip clock desktop gadget? I only used desktop gadgets because I needed to have clock on second display so I can keep track of the time. Aaaand it is gone. Well, it is there, but it does not run, no matter what I click on. My bet is that it is caused by the freakin' Daemon Tools, because I had it's gadget on desktop too, but I didn't used it much.
    Lastly, I HATE that new look of start menu. Can I get layout from version 1511? I installed the Anniversary update just because I wanted that black scheme for setting menus. I didn't know it would broke these things. And it really freaks me off, because I am just now getting angry from Acer Aspire 5738G that runs like piece od crap and my job is to fix it.
    Please help me before my head explodes, it is getting me annoyed soooo much it is unbelieveable. Thank you very much!

    Hi, someone else had this sort of issue with Daemon... I suggested using Revo to uninstall it. That helped. See if it works for you..

    (I had 3 minor programs which were incompatible with the upgrade).

    Start menu.. use a replacement e.g. Classic Shell which properly expresses menus with folders and subfolders, and can launch the universal apps too.
    If you want tiles, you can still launch the Win 10 start menu. Or get one of the other replacement start menus.

    Ah, Daemon tools, always trouble with it, had to give up on it years ago. W10 is capable of mounting ISO files just fine.

    Yeah, but that is not the biggest problem of mine. I am desperately missing the Windows Gadgets, because it was the only clock I had in my room...

    Hi there.

    Windows Gadgets went out with Windows VISTA !! there's plenty of "Screen type" clocks both digital and analog for display.

    ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM before doing any of this type of stuff and then you can restore it it doesn't work or you don't like it

    Check and post in Customization - Windows 10 Forums I believe there are some reasonable substitutes. I'm using ClocX - Free analog clock for Windows desktop on the desktop. It has "Always on top" feature.

    I went berserk and started to manually destroy files. It helped, don't ask me how
    Revo Uninstaller Pro definetely helped, I don't know why I haven't thought about that myself, I was using that half a year ago. Huh...

    But for that Start menu... I know there are some apps that change appearance, but it is not what I want. I want start menu right before Anniversary update, so apps shows themselves when I want to, not they are always there.
