I really don't understand how one could "hate the latest update" unless something is actually going wrong that's not supposed to.

 

It would be helpful for you to identify what it is that's giving you problems.  Rolling back to Version 1709 (or even just undoing the latest cumulative update) will not make later updates stay away permanently.  They will be applied later.

 

If there is some instability in your system that is making the result after an update is applied unsatisfactory that should be addressed, whether before the update applies again or after it's been applied.

Are you talking about the July update or the April update? What version and build are you running?

By the way, this will only work if System Protection is active.   There seems to be an "odd split" in Windows 10 installations where a large number of them do not have System Protection turned on.

 

It is always worth checking to be certain about that, particularly after each feature update.   I've never had mine turned off by a feature update, but others report that they have.

It's not active, unless you set to be. Unfortunately, Windows 10 doesn't have this on by default. Type "system restore" in the search box.

Control Panel, System, System Protection link.

 

Contrary to popular lore it is not "off by default" under Windows 10, but it is "unpredictable by default" under Windows 10.  I've seen far more systems with it on than off, but I have seen systems with it off and where I have absolutely no reason to believe that the end user turned it off.  There are also plenty of reports of people checking and finding that System Protection is off.

 

I have also never had it be turned off after a feature update, either.

Rocky, quite possibly, but not for lack of attempting to get the information required in order to give an answer.  The information that's on this thread is useful on its own, too.

I've seen far more systems with the longstanding typical setting, System Protection ON, than I have with it OFF, though I do not doubt a number of those reporting that it was OFF on their machines who state that they did not fool with that setting, either.

 

It takes a few moments to check, and it's worth checking.  That being said, I have learned to never rely on System Restore, as I have had times when all available restore points fail.  Those times are relatively rare, but not so rare that I don't expect it could happen again.  I am a huge believer in using an external backup drive and taking full system image backups immediately prior to, and immediately after, any major system update or when you've installed enough software or created enough new user data that you'd want to rend your clothing, slash your wrists, and emit a deep, primal scream if you had to do any of it all over again.  It's not like that generally happens on a daily basis, either.  But if you've just uploaded several thousand photos or spent a couple of days converting many CDs into MP3 files most of us would really, really prefer to have this all backed up ASAP.
