Thanks for the reply, dude. Yes, it's all browsers. Amazes me how when stuff like this happens with the Windows updates, it's so difficult to find other people who have had the same thing.
Edit: Awesome. Been on the computer five minutes, managed to reply on here, aaaaand internet off. How is it okay for Microsoft to do this to our computers?
You know, you need to consider two things:
- "Burps" can happen during updates to the system, with any OS, causing unexpected results.
- If Microsoft has been supplied with drivers that have flaws (or is electing to use their own flawed drivers instead of those supplied to them by the manufacturer of a given piece of hardware) that can cause problems, too.
Not that I don't feel your pain, I do because I've been there, but it's not necessarily Microsoft that's at fault and blame placement not really useful to finding the solution.
Is System Restore active on your system? If so, please do a restore to a restore point prior to the issue having occurred to see if that fixes it. If it does then you have evidence that either #1 or #2 above has occurred. If it does not, then there is likely something else amiss that coincidentally occurred around the time of the Windows 10 update, and we'd need to determine what, exactly, that is.
