I am seeing more and more clients with issues due to the latest Windows 10 Update. Common issues are that printers/scanners and other devices that worked one day suddenly do not work the next day. I also have had clients reporting their laptop will suddenly shuts down and not power back up until the laptop is plugged into the wall. It gives every appearance that the battery is somehow bad. It is not a bad battery at all. The removal of the latest Microsoft update returns the laptop to normal working condition and the battery works as expected.
What to do...
Microsoft made a change in their policy back in June of this year. Windows 10 users can no long block or defer any Microsoft updates. They have taken away control of the operating system from you, the user/owner, and they dictate how your computer will operate and which updates it will receive, regardless of how it might effect you or your particular computer.
This is a change that most people are unaware of yet most will experience these some of these issues without warning. Keep the phone number of your computer guy/gal close at hand. If the issues suddenly appears one day when everything worked fine the day before, it very well might be a Microsoft update.
