Following the Windows 10 April update many users have suffered from various bugs which Microsoft has been fighting to fix.

But of all the bugs experienced by users since the Windows 10 April update, the latest one has the most extreme solution yet.

The recently reported issue comes from a user who says Windows 10 “destroyed” his laptop. There are no icons, no toolbars, no Wi-Fi and no drivers, leaving the user near disabled.

Microsoft does have a solution for users suffering with this or similar issues, called Start Fresh. As the name suggests this is a program to begin everything again.

The Windows 10 Start Fresh allows you to reinstall Windows 10 as if anew for the first time – minus the bugs that any update has caused.

Microsoft warns that using the tool will mean: “You may lose your digital licenses, digital content associated with applications, or other digital entitlements for applications as a result of using the tool, which may impact your ability to use apps you paid for or app-related content you paid for.”

Microsoft has already been hard at work to fix a bug that was caused by the rollout of the April update.

The bug caused Chrome to freeze and also for Microsoft’s own Cortana voice assistant to lock up.

The issue was, allegedly made known to Microsoft a month before the update rolled out.

The Windows 10 April update release was already delayed after a previous bug was found that caused machine crashes.

If this bug is still affecting you there is a way to quick fix it.

As a quick fix in the interim, before the bug fix update rolls out, Microsoft suggests the follow steps:

1. Try a Windows key sequence to wake the screen.  If you have a keyboard connected, simultaneously press the Windows logo key + Ctrl + Shift + B. If you’re on a tablet, simultaneously press both the volume-up and volume-down buttons, three times within 2 seconds.  If Windows is responsive, a short beep will sound and the screen will blink or dim while Windows attempts to refresh the screen.

2. If you’re using a laptop, close and open the laptop lid.
