    The next thing is to boot into safe mode and see if a rouge program is causing the problems...have you tried safe mode yet?

    Eventually I managed to get into safe mode by a very finicky method, which was by turning the computer off during startup which made it do a startup repair next time it turned on, from which I was able to enter safe mode. And in safe mode--everything works. None of the described issues happen there. I am able to use all the windows features (aside from those blocked in safe mode), ctrl+alt+delete and restarting function properly, and I am able to connect to the internet and use firefox, everything works. So this means that there is something there causing the problems, and it is being blocked by safe mode, but I cannot find it!
    Also yes, I have run Malwarebytes; several times.

    Evidence seems to be suggesting it is an errant driver, tho; however when I did a driver maintenance scan it came up with nothing. And trying to find the awry driver manually is a daunting task to say the least!

    Forgot to mention, I tried that too this morning! I had a restore point from yesterday before the windows update after which things stopped working--though there is also one from the 27th I could try, too. I am just worried about losing some of the work I have done recently so I should probably just back up some of those files first as I was planning to do anyway. I will try that and update you in this thread on what happened.

    Ok, flutters let us know

    MS probably downloaded drivers with the update

    You can go into system>advanced system settings >hardware> device instillation settings and say no

    This will prevent windows from installing drivers

    Okay, so... the system restore failed, said there was a file it could not access, but didn't say what file or why exactly... So that option is out! I really wish I could figure out exactly what's going on
