  2. Windows 10 irritation

    I discuss what are the
    typical causes here
    but if it's not those, then
    this has some easy ways to identify
    what is actually causing it.

    The recovery option should have a "rollback" option for you, as long as the windows.old folder hasn't been deleted from the drive by a cleanup tool (or manually).
