This made inoperable the wifi driver:  Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3165 in Dell Inspiron Laptop 15-7569.  The "up-to-date" driver on the Dell website is out of date and will not install on this version of Windows.  The computer is pretty much dead in the internet water.  Bluetooth still works.  Suggestions?

Roll back to the previous build if you have System Restore active.  Then try the following (and I wrote it long ago, so I am not absolutely certain where Microsoft may have moved things since) to attempt to prevent Windows 10 from updating drivers:

OK.  There were no previous restore points. :(  What I would like to do, I think, is roll back to the last major release... What happened here, I think, is that the person did not update until just this week, along with the Tuesday release.  The wifi immediately quit working and I can't find a new driver anywhere.  So I need to roll back the operating system to pre 1804 and then turn off all major updates for like 6 months, until Dell catches up.  However, the rollback menu provided by the update does not include rolling back the major release... it only lists the security updates. 

 

(By the way, from the forums, Dell is not very responsive to changes like going to 1804, which is sad and should be considered by anyone who is thinking of purchasing a Dell computer!   Dell makes drivers proprietary and then doesn't keep pace with changes.)  So, I'm thinking I will have to reload the operating system from scratch.   (I've had lots of update problems with computers, and most seem to occur on computers that were updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10 during that grace time.  There is something left on the computers that "does not compute" as future operating system versions are released.)

"Dell is not very responsive to changes like going to 1804"

I don't know about that: no problems on 3 Dell's I've updated to 1803.

I would give this a try before completely giving up..   Go to Command Prompt (as administrator) type :   dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
