If it started performing slower than usual after the updates, it's the updates that are causing it.

If those updates can't be removed, the only cure is factory recovery.

Windows 10 updates from Microsoft (automatic updates) can't be turned off, but hopefully the slowness was caused by updates from Asus, so after recovery do not install updates from Asus.

Is it possible to restore the laptop to a previous date instead of factory recovery? Preferably a date before the updates installation

✔ Best Answer
I have seen this issue happen when Windows installs drivers for something a driver is already installed for (usually motherboard firmware). The other drawback to this is, unless we know which updates were installed recently, we won't know which one to uninstall. That and as Phil said, Windows 10 is forcing its updates on things now, which is not cool.

I agree with the factory recovery, that will definitely fix this problem. But, from there, let Windows install the updates, not Asus.
