Microsoft has posted up two more workarounds for people who are experiencing freezing issues on their PC after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
As we previously reported, the company is investigating issues with some users who have a PC that has Windows 10 stored on a SSD, with apps and data stored on a separate drive. It also offered some workarounds to this issue that have been successful for some people. In an updated thread on the Microsoft Community forums (via Thurrott.com), the company stated:
From users posting here and visiting the Microsoft Store, we have been able to collect log files and are looking into why a small set of users with the two drive configuration (SSD as OS with a second data drive) are experiencing this while the majority with the same configuration proceed as normal. We will continue to post updates here.
In addition to the workaround mentioned above, the community has also reported a number of their own solutions including logging into a second account (which then fixed the first one) or uninstall of an older antivirus program and then installing the latest version.
The same support thread has links to other forum posts describing more Windows 10 Anniversary Update issues that have been reported. Some of them have their own workarounds. They include getting a blank screen after updating, freezing midway through its installation, and having the PC boot up slower than normal after updating.
