    I manually downloaded 1709 a few months ago and everything continued to work great, then the Fall Creators Update was again installed via Windows Updates and the defecation hit the impeller. Now my once wonderful SP3 boots slow, the fingerprint reader does not work, and Windows Hello is no longer working either. The fingerprint driver is fracked and I have not found a fix. Danced the uninstall reinstall and pull my hair out dance with the driver, which was a nice workout but the music sucked, so I just reinstalled the 1511 version from USB image, stayed offline so it didn't update anything yet, and the fingerprint reader works again and it boots fast too.Has anyone else seen this and found a fix? I want to use 1709, but not at the expense of slowness and loss of function.
