Since updating to v1709 in December I haven't received a "Cumulative update for Windows 10" until today (though I have received other updates). Right after the patch Tuesday updates were installed today (even before restarting the computer) I noticed a slight slowdown in the performance such as the speed in which programs open.

 

Being that problematic January updates/patches that slowed down many computers (which Microsoft rolled back in subsequent updates) never installed on my computer, am I still supposed to see a slight slowdown on my system due to the March cumulative updates?

 

Does restoring my system and trying to install them again have a chance of not causing this?

 

Thank you.

It couldnt hurt anything. Have you tried restoring to the earlier version to confirm that the new update is the issue? We can also look at some other things that could be the cause.

Perform a clean boot as follows and test:

Try to manually download the update and install it.  You can do this at the Microsoft 10 update history website.  You will want to download the ISO file, it downloads much faster.
