1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    following the hype and the upgrade from 8.x life sucks... most apps fail I cannot successfully install any anti virus. cannot successfully install most things.
    cannot restore to previous versions and life is hell.
    Just so as you know I am an IT professional and after wasting a lot... I mean a lot of time I am thinking rebuild and Linux.....
    it would be nice if there was a simple check and fix install concept?
    nothing is easy and I mean nothing...
    cannot force updates have checked for Virus/malware etc. and am still clean.
    so the crux is the update failed and I cannot restore without loosing files, or any level of confidence .. your thoughts would be appreciated, from a windows fan (_EX)

    Hi, if you are looking to try further things then you would be better off signing up for a Windows Central account, so that you can reply to this thread.
    You've not mentioned what error messages/codes you get when apps fail or if you are signed in with your Microsoft account ok.
    Device drivers, are they all installed in device manager?
    Have you tried rolling back (see link below) and if so what happened?
    Rollback from Windows 10 to Windows 8.1 / 7
    As an IT professional I am sure you know that there is further trouble shooting that can be done before giving up.
    While installing Linux you would lose all your files anyway.
