Windows 10: Fall Creator Update screwed up, settings and all appdata etc.

    Fall Creator Update screwed up, settings and all appdata etc.

    Pretty much what the title says, so I found this that says all I got to do is click restore Win 10 which I did and it's telling me that I need to remove an account before I can do that, here's the kicker the account is my Admin account "custom"

    see what the update did was take my old custom account and leave it and create a new one just adding a desktop name to it, as well as rename the old windows to, but Accounts only shows the old name, and it's Admin so I can't removed it, what a mess, it seems the only way I can restore my settings etc is to copy everything from the old custom to my new custom, or try to change back the old name of of the user folder in Safemode, but would that even work? What a royal PITA, is there anything else I can do? Should I avoid future 10 updates? The last one didn't screw things up like this one did.
    Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    When "roll back" to your previous build of Windows, you are only asked to delete any account if you created a new account
    for you self. If you did not create any new account in the new installed build - there is nothing to delete!

    You should NEVER delete your Admin account! That will lock you out in doing any admin work after you go back to your
    previous build.

    (If you have an Microsoft account - use for mail - then your Microsoft account will have your Windows Key stored.)

    Go Back to the Previous Version of Windows in Windows 10
