New windows 10 update appears to cause issues with Fah client

So I just installed the newest update for windows 10, it's number is 1511. After this, when I tried to start up the client it had a bunch of dll's missing and asked me to choose a default app to open the client with. (wtf?) I tried reinstalling, but when I launch the installer it also prompts me to choose a default app to open the .exe with. So now I'm basically stuck being unable to fold. Just a warning to y'all, do not install this update. It also removed a bunch of other programs from my pc, including winrar, cpu-z, adobe reader and a couple of others. 

 

EDIT: Apparently this is normal.

It has to do with your graphics drivers. The missing .dll files are the ones in your graphics driver F@H uses to fold.

Do a clean install of your drivers. That should work.

Hmm alright. I've never experienced this before, so I thought it was a strange thing. With windows 7 updates this never happened.
