Solved Windows update creates errors

Gigabyte / Ga-78lmt-s2p

Specs: Windows 10, 8gig
After the most recent update I noticed (when I used my Start menu that all my tiles had changed to down arrows), I cant be sure that the update caused this or not although a search on the net revealed that other users had suffered the same fate. I seldom use this facility but on this occasion I did.

I did a file check which took forever but no fault was found. I also did a restore to an earlier time but still no fault was found.

I spent some time deleting the tiles and creating new ones and the next time I opened the start menu I had down arrows again. I have noticed that every time I have a Microsoft update something goes amiss on the system.

How can i stop updates from loading?

I have found that most errors or glitches related to updates are usually fixed on the next update about a week later. There was one that persisted through 2 or 3 updates but that is atypical for MS.
They cannot keep their grubbies out of the waters. They should go by the rule: "If It Ain't Broken Don't Fix It"

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Yeah problems after updates are not rare (particularly after those big features updates) although I've not run into this symptom personally. Try this:

Go to Device manager, double click Display Adapters then right click the entry that appears (your Display/Graphics hardware). Select Uninstall. Ignore all warnings but if it asks whether you want to remove the software DON'T LET IT. "Restart" the computer (rather than shutting it down and switching it on again). This will set the display software up again.

As regards stopping updates is your Win 10 Home or Pro?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Re #2. With Windows Home your options to stop or even delay updates are limited but see here:
