The new Windows 10 Creators Update is supposed to improve PC performance and deliver a faster, more reliable Windows 10 experience. Unfortunately, many users who upgraded to Windows 10 Creators Update are dealing with a series of issues that make their computers anything but fast and reliable.

There are multiple problems that appeared unexpectedly after months of test and optimization. Getting back to the matter at hand, it seems that some users are dealing with very sluggish PCs after they’ve updated to the Creators Update.

Sumit Gupta130, a Microsoft forum user, has decided to search for help online, wishing to know how to get rid of their annoying problem. Here is what happened to Sumit after updating to the Creators Edition.

Today i installed windows 10 creators update and it got installed without any issue. But after installing i m experiencing performance problems. Even some basic apps and video players are lagging very much.

And also i deleted my previous windows installation files so i can’t go back now. PLz help and tell me way to increase performance or tell me a way to roll back to previous build without deleting any data.

Also i have tried all the basic ways to increase performance  like deleting temp files, disabling effects , etc. So please don’t waste time in suggesting all those methods.

If you’re experiencing a similar issues, try using one of these Windows 10 PC optimization software. These tools can really make your PC snappier. Of course, you can also roll back to a previous Windows 10 version, while waiting for a quick fix for this Creators Update problem.

If you want to recover your previous build, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > click Update and Security.
  2. Choose Recovery > Select Get Started under Go Back > follow the on-screen instructions.
