Microsoft spent months sending annoying reminders to upgrade to Windows 10 before the July 29 deadline and promised to deliver with the Anniversary Update, but now many Windows users are crying foul. After all of the hype surrounding the release of the update, it looks like there's a major problem.

If you have Windows 10 but haven't installed the latest updates, you're probably pretty happy with all of the features. Windows 10 has its pros and cons, but feedback has been mostly positive. However, after installing the Anniversary Update, some people are losing access to the features they really want.

This is due to the update package causing their system to crash. Many have noticed random system freezes that are making their computers unusable directly after startup.

The problem was originally reported in a thread on Reddit, but within just a few days the thread had received more than 600 comments from people who were experiencing the same problem.
