Windows 10 Anniversary Update Problems

7 August 2016


Quite a few people have been reporting serious issues with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, such as the system completely freezing. I agree with articles like this one on InfoWorld that the Anniversary Update should not be installed, with more details on several methods of how to block it from automatically installing in the aforementioned article. I've blocked the Anniversary Update on my own system. Forced buggy updates are just one of the reasons why I do not recommend using Windows 10.
