Because Win10 updates are not the "partial" updates that you were used to up to this point, they make a "clean" installation and in the process they disrupt already installed software, especially software that interacts with the system. Expect that you should be doing this drill for every major Win10 update.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.

If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
