April 2018 update of Windows 10 butchered my system

There was some talk that when this [v1803] feature update first came out, there was drivers issues. Seems it wasn’t fixed.

I upgraded last Saturday night. Seems fine. Upgrade was maybe 35 minutes. No complaints about incompatible updates.

Was fine for the past few days. Didn’t really notice much.

Then I noticed the lock screen was some horrible background – not the one I previously used. Couldn’t change it back. Searched for fixes and none worked.

Tonight I wanted to capture the audio off my cell phone to my computer but my audio features on my computer wouldn’t work. Audio capture application would crash after hitting 20% of the CPU. OK. Tried the web cam and it wouldn’t function. And yet, the Device Manager showed no issues. Even my point and shoot camera wasn’t picked up.

So I did a recovery back to v1709. Suddenly everything is reverse. My lock screen is back, the audio works and my web cam works.

I have the Pro edition of Windows 10, so I can stop v1803 from installing again and delay v1809 [when out this fall] if I need to.

So be warned.
