If you experience a slower machine, crashes, blue screens, programs not opening or system updates not installing properly, sometimes the cause is that a system update is faulty. Windows 10 has a built in function to undo updates. Unbeknownst to most users, a preventative measure often needs to take place to ensure you can use the rollback feature.

  • Step 6, select Turn on System Protection. Then click Apply, then OK.
