How Can I Fix Programs Broken by Windows Update?

Episode 1673 (1:44:22)

Jay from Lompoc, CA
Windows

Jay updated his Windows 10 PC recently and it's completely screwed up now. He's had to reinstall several programs and the way the files are saved now is completely different than he's used to. Leo says he could try using the restore point, but they are inherently unreliable. It's also turned off by default, so he may not have a restore point anyway. So it's important to set a restore point BEFORE upgrading. And also, check and see if a program is still supported or not. Look to see if it's still being developed before an upgrade. What he may have to do is start over and reinstall Windows 10 from scratch.
