windows update, now I have to run applications as administrator.

2018-02-14, 21:28 PM

Windows updated today.  I have lost MS Excel.  Google needs to be ran as administrator.  Todays task is all on Excel, between constant updates and the pixelated screen of death from last month.  This is slowing production down to a crawl.  I have heard this run as administrator has something to do with username being "lost."  If any one has any tips for me on this I would appreciate it.  

 

Lenovo P50

win 10 pro

win update 1709  just installed ( i have had this problem on and off since the fall creators update)

February 13, 2018—KB4074588 (OS Build 16299.248)

 

EDIT:  just rolled back the update from today.  Everything works again.  

How do i know when to update the bad update again?

FYI:

I was able to get into excel by

1. right clicking the excel icon in the start menu.

2. open the more tab

3. run as administrator

4. excel opens

5. open excel workbook we are working on

6. this is now a 5 hours earlier version of workbook.

7. recover previous versions. none available

8. review versions available on side panel, wow there is one from just before the update, that excel doesnt recognize as the same file.  

9. opened file and resaved to desktop with new file name.  

10.  1.5 hours lost but still have all my data.  

 

11. wondering when the next microsoft update will happen.
