Microsoft mistakenly releases dev build that crashes phones and computers

Don't push that update through! Microsoft customers — particularly Windows Insiders — running x86 architecture PCs and phones beware: there's a dev branch build (16212) that is bound to cause problems if you allow it onto your system. 

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/9d026553-ac1f-311b-8717-565f62df7615/microsoft-mistakenly-releases.html?.tsrc=daily_mail&uh_test=1_08&soc_src=mail&soc_trk=ma

If at all possible, more advanced users should be using any of several tricks to postpone or defer automatic updates in all versions of Windows 10. This is not the only disaster doing so could have averted.

And as always, have recent, verified and tested backups of System and Data. A Restore sure beats a full-scale Reinstall. System Restore will not roll back a Feature Update which is causing certain types of Windows crashes. 

Woody Leonhard and his top Lounge contributors have posted on his own site and at Infoworld.com several techniques for blocking or deferring automatic updates, even in Windows 10 Home. 

As of the Creator's (Spring 2017) Update, we all may get a bit of allowance to defer updates except for critical security updates, which this one definitely was not. This was a "Feature Update" and can be deferred in Win 10 Pro even in the Anniversary Update.
