I have had to rollback the updates on my windows 10 pc the last four times it has forced me to take them.

Yes, I know about all of the ways to 'try' to avoid the updates or how to stop certain parts (like drivers) from automatically updating but unfortunately I've done it all and none of them work .. for long.

(I have had help and suggestions, tried them all until there just doesn't seem to be any solutions left to try)

On the Home version of Windows 10, Microsoft will eventually 'force' every part of the updates upon you.

I've had to do the rollbacks because Every time the updates are forced, my display gets totally messed up and almost unusable!

I believe the problem is the AMD innards, (Radeon R7 integrated display driver) and everything associated with AMD!

Microsoft and AMD both acknowledge that there is a problem but neither admits that it is 'their' problem!

Now the reason for my question!

I have no idea if Microsoft will allow an unlimited amount of these rollbacks, using their rollback feature.

I need a way to continue the rollbacks until (I Hope) the problems with the display is fixed!

RollbackRX allows 7 rollbacks with their free version and unlimited with the paid version.

I can't afford the paid version on any (Acronis etc. etc.) of the software out there so I am looking closely at rollbackRX which claims to be able to get your files from a crashed pc.

Here are the features:

Go back to any previous point in time within seconds.

Go back minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months to any previous snapshot.

Will not affect computer performance and uses minimal system resources.

Supports up to 7 snapshots.

Creates a complete system snapshot without having to restart the system.

Will Reverse any system crash within seconds (even if Windows cannot start).

Ability to back out of any failed program and OS updates as well as botched updates.

Recover from any malware or virus attack within seconds.

Compatible with VMWare and Virtual Machines, both as a host or within the virtual machine as a client.

Locks snapshots to prevent automated deletions.

Complete with an intuitive GUI based snapshot manager.

Explore, browse and retrieve files and folders from any snapshot. Drag and drop them into your active system.

Roll backward as well as forwards to any available system snapshot.

Allows users to safely test any software, and complete a 100% uninstall.

Ability to retrieve files from a crashed PC, even if Windows cannot boot.

Manually take a snapshot on demand.

Task Scheduler comes pre-configured to a take a snapshot at the first boot of the day and upon execution of a "Setup.exe" function.


All opinions are welcome and appreciated.

From reading your post...which reads like a promo, IMO...I don't see a question of any sort proposed through all those words.

 

Did I miss it?

There have been some threads at this site that might give you some consensus

I guess that what I am trying to say is: I am at a loss.

I know that Microsoft will forever try to force the upgrades (cumulative, creation updates) .. It's just a matter of who (me or them) who will give up first! :smash:

 

I'm looking for any way to keep what I have now, (It works fine) and not have to worry about the day Microsoft stops me from using their rollback feature.

 

I've see all of the reviews, using Google search.

 

I just wanted to see if anyone from Bleeping Computers had any experience with the app?

 

I trust the folks on here more than just random people from who knows where.

MrClose, that's why I posted the threads relevant from bleepingcomputer site: which shows all feedback other members have contributed at this forum regarding the product.
Some time ago I considered Rollback RX for my XP computers and researched here. Opted not to use it, personal choice.

I do not understand why anyone would continue to use Windows 10 if they absolutely, positively do not wish to be in the "Windows as a Service" era.   It makes no sense.

 

MrClose would be far better off to post to the Windows 10 forum to get assistance on figuring out why the issues he has encountered with upgrades are occurring and to remedy those than to try to forestall the inevitable.

 

If you don't want the updates then you either need to be on an earlier version of Windows or switch to Linux.  You can't essentially say, I don't want the beating heart of the Windows 10 operating system, and expect that OS to retain integrity over time.

I am using Rollback RX Pro (the paid version) on my 2nd machine because my main one has an SSD and RX is rumored to not permit the TRIM job. 

 

So about RX on Win10 Fall, it works flawlessly (even the latest version v10.7), and it is a tool i miss on my main machine; so if you like it, as i feel you do, just buy a license, it is worth the shot.

Thank You Everyone!

 

I am going to try the free version first while I save up my pennies to purchase the pro ... if I like it!
