      I’ve had nothing but problems since I got updated with 1703 build 15063.540 on the 8th

      3 times a week I attend online classes that use AdobeConnect. I took me 1/2 hour yesterday to get in (finally switched to my old laptop) so I missed half the class. My next one is tomorrow and trying to figure out the best way to attend

      I can’t print adobe pdfs (not sure what else, I was able to print from .txt file)

      My computer is very slow. Outlook often says not responding. I keep getting asked to set Firefox and Adobe as default apps, even though they are when automatically it pops up to have me change them to defaults.

      I wish Microsoft hadn’t taken away the feature to only be notified of updates instead of just automatically doing them.

      I am very frustrated. I have an Acer laptop 2-3 years old. I know there’s a way to uninstall this update. I guess that’s the only thing to do for now. I’ve googled and haven’t found other people having issues. I had run a virus scan either the day before of day of the update and I’ve scanned my hard drive for issues – it was fine

      First thing that comes to mind – do you have the latest version of the Adobe products? If not, try updating them.

      If all else fail, try rolling back to the previous Build or do a clean re-install of Win 10 Version 1607 which should then be auto-activated.

      Your Acer computer likely came preinstalled with Win 8.1 about 3 years ago. Buyers are supposed to immediately create a Recovery Factory System image of their Win 8.1 on a 16GB USB Flash-drive by using the inbuilt OEM Recovery Backup Tool = no need Product Key to do the ‘Factory Reset’ recovery when the Win 8.1 system has failed.
      There is an inplace recovery for Factory Reset or Refresh but this is only usable with a working Win 8.1 system.

      For Win 8.1, it is quite difficult to do a clean reinstall through M$’s Media Creation Tool and the downloaded ISO file because you need the COA Product Key to complete the reinstall. The OEMs no longer supply the Product Key COA stickers, supposedly to prevent piracy.
      The OEM PK which can be retrieved with the Produkey software cannot be used for a clean reinstall.
