    Windows 10 Anniversary Update freezing: Microsoft offers temporary fix


    Microsoft has offered workarounds to address a mystery freezing issue that's affecting some systems after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

    The update hasn't caused any widespread issues since its release a few weeks ago, but Microsoft says it is investigating a few reports that the update is causing some devices to lock up.

    "Microsoft has received a small number of reports of Windows 10 freezing after installing the Anniversary Update on systems with the operating system stored on a solid-state drive (SSD) and apps and data stored on a separate drive. This issue does not occur when starting Windows 10 in Safe Mode," Microsoft said on its support forum.

    Microsoft is likely to roll-out a fix as part of a software update eventually, but until it's completed its investigation, it has provided steps to overcome the freezing issue.

    For those having the issue, won't the upgrade try to re-install after a rollback?

    After the update I had a lot of issues, I had to reboot more than 8 times to get rid of some of them and
    a few updates have caused an issue withe the start menu not showing anything at all when left clicked.
    I also have the same issue with the Start menu after updating some drivers but, it appears to go away
    after a few restarts but, I have been getting random lockups since the upgrade and I only have ONE
    drive and it is an SSD??? It may not be related but, it is strange.

    The term "temporary fix" is rather overstated here.

    To rollback (or use safemode) is not a fix as that is tantamount to saying the problem cannot be fixed on current build until they provide one!

    No, not necessarily. If you're already running Windows 10, and have a Digital License, you can just clean install the Anniversary Update instead of doing an upgrade. It will activate just fine. I've done both and had no activation issues.

    If you check the box for "Defer feature updates" it shouldn't reinstall.

    Temporary fix until a patch is released, and or rolled into the install media. I totally agree with what your saying though. It's not a real fix for the problem. It's how to bail out and (hopefully) go back to a working system.
