Like the title suggests, my computer underwent the automatic updates for windows 10. On April 11/12, 2017 it updated to the latest version available, kb 4015217.
I did not experience the installation issues that plagued some users, the installation went by very smoothly, within 10mins. My issues happened the following morning when i started my computer for the first time since the update.
Immediately, i experienced multiple black screens, as if my video card just stops working for a few seconds every few hours. After a while, this issue went away. Now my windows OS is extremely slow. The windows menu in the taskbar does not respond, i can't open the start menu at all. (i've waited about 40mins)
What used to take me seconds, like opening chrome, now takes about a minute. The strange part is that once the programs start, they run perfectly fine after that. However, alt+tab takes a few minutes to finally switch back and i can't switch between programs in my taskbar, because that takes even longer than waiting through alt+tab.
Games have not taken any major performance issues yet. However, today while playing Ark, i did experience periods of stuttering/lag which i have not experienced before.
Basic things i've tried:
I've tried using powershell to repair any corrupted files, but the results say there is no problems there.
I've tried looking for the option to revert to the previous windows 10 version, before this update, but i have no option for it.
Searching a little, it seems this is an issue that affects a few people, but no one has found the cause yet. Thanks.
