    Because you do such a good job of giving easily understood instructions for a novice, it would be helpful if you would give instructions on how tto reset the laptop to a date earlier than the corrupt install. You’d think with all Windows resources, they’d do a better job of beta testing before rolling out mandatory installed updates we cannot say NO, NO,NO to. (My cursor, whether the laptops or mouse, is jumping all over the place after the latest Windows install “fix” that was the opposite.) Thank you
