The Windows 10 April Update is causing more stress for users, with many claiming their PCs were wiped clean after they hit OK on the update prompt.

Windows message boards were bombarded with complaints after users found that the "restart and install" prompt for the Windows 10 update led to a blank screen with a message saying:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop is unavailable. If the location is on this PC, make sure the device or drive is connected or the disc is inserted, and then try again. If the location is on a network, make sure you're connected to the network or internet, and then try again. If the location still can't be found, it might have been moved or deleted.
The screen has no icons and a few users were only able to remedy the problem with the help of another PC, a luxury many do not have access to.

Thanks for sharing. Why wouldn't the disk be inserted? If you are really concerned, turn off updates, and DEFER FUTURE ONES. Then tell the OS that your network is a METERED connection. You will only then get the updates after you manually download them. BTW, this will not update any virus definitions, so BEWARE!

You can also TURN OFF FAST BOOT before APPLYING the changes. I have seen this help with this indication.

I recently had to RESTORE from a valid backup. When you get it back up, you may want to configure restore points for the future.

AHH yes, software as a SERVICE instead of a PRODUCT. CRUD Model!
