    Its like a 1/4 of my screen is missing. I went to display and the resolution was my normal 1024x768. So i changed the screen res to its max setting just to see if it would make a difference and it worked fine. I then set the screen back to 1024x768 and problem solved. Now every time i start up i get this 1/4 screen missing and have to go through this routine before i can see the full screen again. As there has been no software or hardware changes and my graphics card is not old im assuming it was the update, Can i revert back to the version before 1607 ? and if so how do i do this ?

    Have a look at this, Windows 10 - Go Back to Previous Windows I have no idea why your screen size does that? I think I would look for and install the latest video driver for your hardware.

    Problem solved. Turns out it was the latest video driver messing things up ! I reverted back to the previous one and now all is fine. Updates aren't always good it seems. Thanks for the reply.

    Good to hear. But you will have to protect that version as Windows will update it otherwise. Uncle MS will give you what he thinks is good for you and replace drivers older or newer than his list.
