1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    For the second time a windows 10 update has rendered my start menu unusable and eliminated all icons from my toolbar. As a consequence I could not access the Settings menu or Control Panel to to find a possible solution. Ultimately, I used Task Manager and the command prompt to use the application rstrui to access a Restore Point that returned my system to its previous state before the update. Why do windows updates continue to break my system? Is there anything I can do to avoid these problems?

    Create a second admin account. You'll be able to get to all of your files via C drive anyways.

    This isn't a solution, but it can save you some time if you need to do urgent work.
