Hello everyone,


My laptop already had Windows 10 default when I acquired it, but just yesterday Windows released an update for the November branch (10586). Well, I don't like it. I woke up and my files were removed from their usual place (though they are still here, and I'm backing up everyone on external for caution). I am not pleased Windows performed this ...


1. How do I uninstall this? Currently it says it is waiting to install the Win 10 update. I presume I must wait for it the Win 10 update to install, then I can remove the update?


2. How to prevent further instances of this happening?




after installing the update, things went back to normal

 The way to uninstall updates is via the Programs and Features applet.  You can't uninstall something before it's installed.  I just installed this KB3135173 on my laptop and have not seen any problems.


 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
