RollbackRX, Windows10 Update Rollbacks
« on: October 20, 2017, 05:15:35 PM »
I have had to rollback the updates on my windows 10 pc the last four times it has forced me to take them.

Yes, I know about all of the ways to 'try' to avoid the updates or how to stop certain parts (like drivers) from automatically updating but unfortunately I've done it all and none of them work .. for long.

(I have had help and suggestions, tried them all until there just doesn't seem to be any solutions left to try)

On the Home version of Windows 10, Microsoft will eventually 'force' every part of the updates upon you.

I've had to do the rollbacks because Every time the updates are forced, my display gets totally messed up and almost unusable!

I believe the problem is the AMD innards, (Radeon R7 integrated display driver) and everything associated with AMD!

Microsoft and AMD both acknowledge that there is a problem but neither admits that it is 'their' problem!

Now the reason for my question!

I have no idea if Microsoft will allow an unlimited amount of these rollbacks, using their rollback feature.

I need a way to continue the rollbacks until (I Hope) the problems with the display is fixed!

RollbackRX allows 7 rollbacks with their free version and unlimited with the paid version.

I can't afford the paid version on any (Acronis etc. etc.) of the software out there so I am looking closely at rollbackRX which claims to be able to get your files from a crashed pc.

Here are the features:

Go back to any previous point in time within seconds.

Go back minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months to any previous snapshot.

Will not affect computer performance and uses minimal system resources.

Supports up to 7 snapshots.

Creates a complete system snapshot without having to restart the system.

Will Reverse any system crash within seconds (even if Windows cannot start).

Ability to back out of any failed program and OS updates as well as botched updates.

Recover from any malware or virus attack within seconds.

Compatible with VMWare and Virtual Machines, both as a host or within the virtual machine as a client.

Locks snapshots to prevent automated deletions.

Complete with an intuitive GUI based snapshot manager.

Explore, browse and retrieve files and folders from any snapshot. Drag and drop them into your active system.

Roll backward as well as forwards to any available system snapshot.

Allows users to safely test any software, and complete a 100% uninstall.

Ability to retrieve files from a crashed PC, even if Windows cannot boot.

Manually take a snapshot on demand.

Task Scheduler comes pre-configured to a take a snapshot at the first boot of the day and upon execution of a "Setup.exe" function.


All opinions are welcome and appreciated.

I don't understand what you'd gain.
You could rollback, true... but Win10 will just update it again sommore.

Was your machine originally Win7?

The pc was already Windows 10 when I bought it.

There is no option for a rollback to Windows 7.

I am at a loss.

I know that Microsoft will forever try to force the upgrades (cumulative, creation updates) .. It's just a matter of who (me or them) who will give up first! :chairbang:  :silly:

You can probably get a copy of Win7 off eBay.

Go to the machine's support page and see if Win7 drivers exist for it.
If they do, all you need is a Win7 key, which you can kype off of any wrecked win 7 box... I have been told some win10 keys work in Win7, but I can't say that perfectly.

If win7 drivers are available, as a test, if you have an old hdd laying around, you could load it up without harming your current setup and make sure it will work.

But there is no solution presently other than either buying an nvidia chip'd vid card or reloading to Win7. Sorry you are having such a trial.

Perhaps return it to your vendor - maybe if you make enough stink they'd get you into something else without the problem... Just to save your patronage.

Is there a reason why you can't go to Linux?

I'm stuck in my ways.
My brain refuses to learn anything new.

I want what I paid for to function properly!!

Take your pick. :silly:

If you have no need for your computer beyond normal internet and email, I would HIGHLY recommend a look at Linux Mint.

Although, if you are technically challenged, figuring out how to make the LiveCD to testdrive it might be beyond you... you might need to find a grandkid to help you out.

But basically, all you do is download Mint, burn it onto a bootable DVD or thumb, and boot to it, rather than your windows installation... You can test it and see if you like it, and if you do...

Hopefully you have a spare hard drive laying around to load it on, and leave the Win10 drive alone... Then the commitment is not so severe.

I would almost bet that if you tried it, you'd never go back...
