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?

 

edit:

 

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.
