    My systems are virus free and all device drivers are up-to-date.

    PS: I'm trying to AVOID a reformat, since I don't want to loose my key applications.

    Nope.
    All Acronis (or any imaging / backup software) can do is provide you with a strong fall back position should you experience any catastrophic problems, by allowing you to recover your system to a point in time that preceded the event.
    Say for instance, given your current situation
    You decided to use the Media Creation Tool to download the ISO for the latest version / build of Windows 10 and use that ISO to manually perform the upgrade yourself, thereby circumventing the normal Windows Update process.
    AND
    That decision, for some reason failed and left your system crippled.
    You would then be able to boot from the Acronis Rescue Media and recover the disk and all partitions from the image you created in advance of the failed upgrade.
