Re-enable System Restore and if you made the change to Driver Update Settings, re-enable that too (Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers > right-click PC > select Device Installation Settings > Toggle "Never install driver software from Windows Update & check "Automatically get device app and info provided by device manufacturer).

I forgot to update this topic with the latest build release.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10565 released to the Fast Ring.

Aside from changes to Skype, messaging, Tab preview in Microsoft Edge, etc., based on problems people have been having, a major change in this build is device activation improvements:
Quote
We have received a lot of feedback from Insiders on making it easier to activate Windows 10 on devices that take advantage of the free upgrade offer to genuine Windows by using existing Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 product keys. If you install this build of the Windows 10 Insider Preview on a PC and it doesn’t automatically activate, you can enter the product key from Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 used to activate the prior Windows version on the same device to activate Windows 10 by going to Settings > Update & security > Activation and selecting Change Product Key. If you do a clean install of Windows 10 by booting off the media, you can also enter the product key from prior Windows versions on qualifying devices during setup. Refer to the Insider Hub for more information on these activation improvements including requirements.

@GabeAul We don't usually do ISOs for Fast Ring builds, but we heard feedback that these would be helpful to try the new activation paths.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10576 released to the Fast Ring.  New features, changes and known issues are available at Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10576/url].  In particular, attention should be paid to the following specific known issues:

  • After upgrading to this build, all your Skype messages and contacts  are gone in the Messaging app. The workaround for this is to navigate to  this folder in File Explorer:
    • C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Packages\
    • Microsoft.Messaging_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache
    • Delete or rename the “PrivateTransportId” file.
    • Then restart the Messaging app.
  • Small form-factor devices, like the Dell Venue 8 Pro, that boot with  rotation or virtual mode screen size set larger than the physical  screen size will experience a bluescreen on upgrade and will roll back  to the previous build.
  • After upgrading to this build, the power button on your Surface Pro 3  may no longer put your Surface Pro 3 to sleep and instead shut down.

Released to the Fast Ring yesterday, Insider Build 11099. 

The issue with the progress bar has been fixed in this build.  Known issues include the following:

  • Log on for devices using Citrix XenDesktop may be broken.  If you use XenDesktop, it is recommended you move to the Slow ring.
  • Applications that depend on Adobe Flash may crash upon launch, affecting some versions of Skype, QQ, WeChat, etc.  It does not affect Edge or IE.

Insider Build 11102 released to the Fast Ring.

New: New history menu in Microsoft Edge

Known issues:

Quote

    Some PC games will crash switching from windowed mode to full screen, upon game resolution change, or upon launch due to a bug in Windows graphics stack. We have observed this with The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed, and Metal Gear Solid V but it may occur with other titles as well.
    With this build (and with the last build), applications such as Narrator, Magnifier, and third-party assistive technologies may experience intermittent issues or crashes. If you rely on screen readers or other software, you should not use this build. This issue will be fixed with the next build.
    You might see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in. We’re working on a fix for this but as a workaround, you can run the following in Command Prompt with administrative rights: schtasks /delete /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask” /F
    While attempting to update to this build, your PC may show a message that your wireless card is not compatible with Windows 10. The workaround is to visit the support page for your PC or wireless card and install the newest driver that is available.
    The Connect button does not show up in Action Center.

Insider Build 14251 released to Fast Ring:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14251 | Windows Experience Blog

Bug Fixes:
  • We fixed the issue where some PC games would crash switching from  windowed mode to full screen, upon game resolution change, or upon  launch due to a bug in Windows graphics stack. So play your games! If  you run into any issues – please let us know by reporting in the  Feedback app and include the game title.
  • We fixed the issue where applications such as Narrator, Magnifier,  and third-party assistive technologies may experience intermittent  issues or crashes.
  • We fixed an issue where File Explorer would crash frequently when DPI settings were at 175%.

Known Issues:
  • You might see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in. We’re  working on a fix for this but as a workaround, you can run the following  in Command Prompt with administrative rights: schtasks /delete /TN  “\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask” /F
  • The Connect button does not show up in Action Center. The workaround  is to press Windows key + P and then click “Connect to a wireless  display”.
  • Due to a recent memory management change, you may see periodic app  crashes or other memory related app errors. The workaround is to reboot  your PC.

Insider Build 14257 Released to Fast Ring:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14257 | Windows Experience Blog

Lots of bug fixes and the WSClient.dll error continues.  However, of note is the following known issue:
Quote
If you choose “Reset This PC” under Settings > Update & Security > Recovery – your PC will be in an unusable state. There is no workaround if your PC gets into this state and you will need to reinstall Windows. This issue will be fixed in the next build. You can still rollback to the previous build if for some reason this build doesn’t work out for you. This bug also existed in Build 14251 so please avoid resetting your PC on these builds.

Additional information in the referenced announcement.

Insider Build 14267 released to Fast Ring:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14267.

Known issuesWe have only one known issue for this build. If you’re using Hyper-V  and upgrade to this build with more than one vswitch or have multiple  virtual networking adapters (including legacy), you may lose networking  connectivity after upgrade. To get network connectivity back, there are  two workarounds available:
  • Remove all the virtual network adapters connected to the vswitch,  delete the vswitch and recreate it, then reconnect their virtual NIC to  the new vswitch.
  • Admin command prompt, do “netcfg -d” will wipe-out all the vswitch settings so that you can start from scratch.

Note:  “Reset This PC” under Settings > Update & Security > Recovery should now work as expected.

Also see the Microsoft Edge Changelog:  Release version 14267

Insider Build 14279 released to the Fast Ring:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14279.

The driver bug with Kaspersky software has not yet been resolved.  Also, if experiencing freezing or BSOD when resuming from hibernation, disabling hibernation has worked for some but not all.  See the blog post for other issues as well as what's new.
