    Seeking advice, bad performance after updating


    A couple of days ago my system did an automatic update (which I have hopefully found a work around to prevent).

    Ever since it rebooted from the update there has been a noticeable drop in performance.

    When I boot up it takes longer for the login screen to come in, after selecting my user it takes longer for the PIN prompt to come up, longer to load in. Opening browsers, everything.

    Most noticeably was World of Warcraft. I used to just close it then put the computer to sleep, it took a great deal longer after the update.

    Is there any way to roll back these updates? Short of perhaps a fresh system re-install.

    Or can anyone advise me on a couple tips or settings I could change please?

    Hi adanturismo and welcome to Tenforums.
    I would suggest off the top of my head:
    1. Turn off Fast Startup and give it a few reboots.
    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    2. Open an admin command prompt (or powershell) and run sfc /scannow.
    Run SFC Command in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Customization Tutorials

    3. Remove ASUS AI Suite if you have it installed.

    Do you know what update it was that installed? Was it the Creators Update?
    Type winver in the search box and run the command; post the screenshot here.

    I'm sure others will chime in with more ideas.

    Thanks for the quick reply simrick

    Here is the screenshot. Unfortunately I don't have time to test the suggestions right now but I will get on it tomorrow morning.

    And I'm pretty sure it was the Creators Update.

    Nope, Creators Update is v1703.
    We can fix this easily - we'll do a repair install with an in-place upgrade and get you on the Creators Update.
    Tomorrow then. Cheers.

    p.s. - please remove the screenshot - your email address is not blacked out and you'll get mountains of spam.

    Hey simrick!

    Sorry I didn't get back to ya yesterday. Busy day that evolved into watching the hockey games. Sadly neither one turned out how I hoped lol.

    Normally I am fairly competent when it comes to computers, but this is the first roadblock I have encountered with Win 10. Can you point me in the right direction to get this all fixed up?

    Hi.
    Did you perform the suggestions in Post #2?

    Do you perform regular backups? If so, are you current? What do you use/how do you do it? I'd prefer to see a Macrium Reflect system image before we proceed - do you have an external hard drive available, and how much free space is on it? Do you have a couple spare flash drives?

    Suggestions: not yet. I give them a shot.

    Regular backups: no.

    I have both an external HD available and a secondary hard drive in the laptop that has most of it's 1TB free. And flash drives, yes.

    Started off with turning off fast startup

    Already seems to be making a considerable difference Going to run some stuff and see how it does.
