Win 10 update build 15002

  hssutton 10:01 11 Jan 2017

As anyone downloaded this update and find it works OK? Unfortunately for me I left my PC unattended last evening, resulting in update being downloaded. So many problems that I don't really know where to start. Firefox informs me that it cannot run. IE just shows a blue screen. 'Settings' will not work and Admin priviliges have been removed, unable to restore to previous build. 1/4 of the screen is covered in blank tiles. Probably other issues as well, but do not have the time to find out.

Just checked my Windows 10 and it is build 1607. Checked for updates and they are only for this build.

A quick Google seems to suggest that you have downloaded Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002 somehow.

The latest mainstream version is 1607 (14393 693) from the latest MS Updates released yesterday from which I would assume you are on the Beta updates track. Enter "winver" from Start Menu/Run to check.

Can yo do a restore to the previous working status?

rdave yes you are correct it's the latest 'Insider'update. Just spent a little time trying to overcome the problem, but no luck. unable to do anything, on restart it went to a blue screen, attempted an auto repair, but failed. All is not lost however as I always have a backup. Will update again this evening
