    The Fall Creators Update is HORRIBLE!!! It disables a lot of functions that the previous version used. It disables networking capabilities, and significantly disrupts the overall functioning of the computer. The Fall Creators Update is not appropriate for a computer...trash it!!!

    Hi. I need help. I've tried the recovery option you've stated but windows wants me to remove an account I created. Unfortunately, the account it wants me to delete is my administrator account. For some reason, windows indicates that I have "other people" that I must delete before I can rollback. The problem is there's no other account. Just one administrator account. Any idea how I can rollback because I really dislike this 1709 fall version
