    Uninstall of 10049 doesn't work


    I have problems with 10049 and would like to uninstall it. Anyone tried to do that? I click on "Uninstall Latest Preview Build" section and the window closes before I can select any other option. HELP! I want to go back to 10041 because I was able to work with it.
    Edit: I have a second PC with 10049 on it. When I try to run the "Uninstall Latest Preview Build" on this computer, it does the same thing. (The window closes before there is time to select from the menu options the action you want to take.) The appearance of being able to back out of a build is only an appearance and not a fact in reality, it would appear, and you really cannot back out and return to a previous version of Windows 10!

    I just went through a 4 hour upgrade to 10049 and when it finished it restored my previous version. The best way IMHO to do this is to reformat and install 10041.. Build 10049 is wastes.

    I had some problems with 10049 until I ran Ccleaner. Now everything appears to be working good.

    Similar situation here on my older Dell test machine. After the restore to 10041 I went into the Event Viewer and a popup window appeared showing an error 0xc1900101-0x2000c had occurred.

    My main machine updated fine so am not really worried about the Dell but I am still curious about what is going on.

    Same failure upgrading to 10049 on my VirtualBox Windows 10 TP. Let it run overnight and when I checked in the morning it was back to build 10041.

    Just remembered I had Classic Shell installed. I wonder if that caused the problem. I'll uninstall it and see what happens. I did not have Classic Shell installed when I did the other upgrades.

    Edit: l forgot I had a Windows.old from the previous upgrade to 10041 left around. Ran CCleaner to get rid of it. Trying the update to 10049 again.
