I'm getting problems with several programs following my recent Win 10 update to version 1709 (Build 16299.192).

The most obvious in my case is Corel PaintShop Pro. Considerable discussion in the Corel Forum of very slow start-up times, particularly for X9 and 2018 versions.

That's particularly annoying for me as I'd only just 'upgraded' to PSP 2018 from my 15 year old PSP 8, because the latter was becoming unreliable under Win 10.

But I'm also frustrated by other more obscure recently arising problems. Such as with IrfanView and Macro Express Pro.

Anyone know of a reliable source listing issues arising or suspected of arising from the latest updates please?

Technically this is not an update but more along the lines of a OS upgrade. This is the inherent issues MS is seeing with this type of deployment with windows 10 for some users. Same thing when going from XP to 7 or 7 to 8 using the upgrade path. Some drivers and software will work while others wont....this is down to the kernel package. With windows 10...this was supposed to be fixed on the kernel side with drivers. That still leaves the software side. Where your are forced to reinstall software that gets deleted or corrupted during the upgrade. It happens all the time.

The only way to fix your issue is to uninstall all affected software and then reinstall them.

Note: for us hard core PC enthusiasts, we will get the ISO and do a clean install of the latest "upgarde"....ie windows 10 is a clean install, the the anniversary update came out and we would do a clean install of that, then the fall creators update came out and we would do the same. For us it just eliminates any bugs that we may incur during the upgrade. We would backup (save) what we want and then do the clean install and then add our saved data back. Then reinstall what ever software we had. It's a PITA but it's a lot less headache in the long run....trying to track down what was corrupted or broken during the upgrade.
