Hello Bleeping Computer. I am new to your community.
Last week Windows Update put the Creators Update on my laptop. It promises to "further empower your creativity with new innovations and features". What it did was take an entire day to install and creatively use up a lot of my time this week. It innovatively removed the log in screen.
When I start my computer, both from a compete shutdown or from sleep mode, the log in screen shows the picture of the day but will not give the option to log in. The log in boxes do not show up.
So I take another step and restart my laptop in safe mode from this screen and it now allows me to log in - in safe mode. Every time my laptop goes to sleep I have to do this double start up to reach safe mode.
I restored my Windows 10 to a time before the Win 10 Creators Update. I then disabled Windows Update in Services so that I don't have to fight with this update again until it is actually ready for prime time. ( I wish we could still choose updates the old way) I hoped this error would reverse after the System Restore but I still do not get the log in boxes after a wake up or start up.
I researched Microsoft Community without locating a solution. I posted a question and a Microsoft Community Forum Moderator suggested I do a "clean boot". I did that. The laptop started quickly and gave me the log in screen. I asked for additional help but have not received another response. Will a clean boot simply resolve some issues? I went back into msconfig and the boxes are all checked again.
Here's how to perform clean boot: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows
I am still trying to figure out the next step to repair this issue. If I find the solution I will update this post. Otherwise : HELP please.
Also - Windows 10 always did seem to run slow but it has added some additional lag time after this Creators Update. Very creative.
I am running
Windows 10,Version 1703, OS build 15063.332
I did want to get some work done this week. I had not planned on computer repair. Thanks Microsoft.
