    Installed the update at 10PM. Regular restart would not work. Had to do a hard shutdown.
    Can no longer go through Settings, Security and Update to review installed updates.
    That option screen locks up but I can use any of the other screens. Everything runs slower than before even though I have 16G DDR3L1600 RAM and a 3.1G CPU.

    I could only log into my admin account after the update. Any time I tried to log into my other account, it said it couldn’t connect to group policy client service. I had to restart the computer to get it to work. Even then, my computer runs slower and things freeze up. It’s very annoying, especially since I use this computer for my son’s virtual schooling. And I need it to be reliable.

    My display background has gone crazy after this update. Blinking black. After several restarts it ditched the background picture and showed a plain colour. The personalise setting still show picture selected and re selecting any kind of background causes it to fail again. Blinking black screen with ineffective bar at the bottom. Only Ctrl-Alt-Del works.

      Uninstalled the update and problem disappeared.
      Then Windows update re-installed the update and – so far it seems ok. No screen problems at the moment.
