Win 10 Anniversary Update delivers great features but it doesn’t work for everyone who tries to install it.

In particular, some users experience a bug that causes the update process to freeze. This makes the whole system freeze and crash upon start-up.

There is no reaction to mouse movement, even following a restart, and other problems will appear when you try to access the Start Menu and taskbar. This kind of issue often happens to a computer if it has its OS installation on an SSD and the associated data on other disks.

In order to fix this issue, users need to use the Microsoft Windows 10 Patch Update.

First, boot the computer again using Windows 10 Safe Mode. After booting up, users should transfer all data and application installations to their main operating system drive.

Then we suggest that users roll back to a previous Windows build.
