    It hascompletely frozen all my MS apps so cannot use them.
    I have an ssd drive system and some one has suggested that this update doesn't work with this set up.
    MS is ignoring the problem so far.
    I cannot get rid of the update through normal means, cannot even access find files
    as a cortana voice box has been installed and I haven't the use of a microphone.
    Can't access e-mail etc etc.
    Will try your advice and see if that works. Thank you.
