    In that case, you should be able to safely manually restart the computer to continue to Windows.

    I'm contemplating a system restore but before I do I looked at the list of files (drivers) which might need redoing. Which was absolutely huge, seemingly because of a glitch over date formats (see screenshot). I'm guessing it's not a problem, but what do you think. And how exactly did MS let this go so utterly haywire?

    I would take those screen shots to mean that you have chosen a restore point of Sept 2, and that all of the items in the first and third boxes have been added to your system AFTER that date, mostly by Windows Update.

    And that those added items will be replaced by the items in the second and fourth box.


    I assume you do not have a more recent restore point that is still old enough to solve whatever problem you may have.

    I suppose that all of those items in the first and third boxes will be sent to you once again in the future, mostly as part of Windows continuing updates.

    I faced a similar situation 2 or 3 days ago and said yes to it and haven't had any problems. Within a day of my successful restore, Windows said I was once again up to date.

    I don't pretend to fully understand Windows Update, but it's pretty much unavoidable--you either deal with it or go to some other operating system. You get to choose whether or not to submit.

    I would blame MalwareBytes, not Microsoft. Anti-rootkit feature protects drivers from being infected.

    Actually I have solved my own problem
    The screenshot shows that all the drivers are in fact the same date, at the top they are like 2017-09-10 (10sep2017, yyyy-mm-dd), at the bottom they are in in the format 10/09/2017 dd/mm/yyyy.
    The solution was to revert the system date format to dd/mm/yy and all of a sudden the restore said that the only thing I would lose would be malwarebytes, it now discerned that no drivers had been altered.
    Thanks anyway. It's not the first time that just writing a post leads me to the answer.
