Laptop extremely slow after Windows 10 update

2
Boy do I regret updating to the newest Windows 10 update. I decided to update at around 10:30 PM last night. It was over 2 hours later when it finished and took me to the login page. Then came all of the issues. After entering my password, the welcome loading circle just kept turning and turning and turning for over 10 minutes until it was sent to a black screen. That went on for over 15 minutes. After waiting for another 5 minutes, I decided to restart my laptop. My patience was running. My laptop would stay stuck at the main DELL loading page for over 10 minutes. I restarted again. Another 5 minutes with the main loading page and another 20 twenty minutes loading. At this point, I just kept restarting a bunch of times. I ran out of patience and frustration and anger just grew. Now it's loading and loading and loading for literally an eternity.

I tried again in the morning. When I finally managed to get pass the loading page after an hour later, I had issues with the login page. It took forever to respond. I was able to login, but my computer won't let me access my start menu. When I hover over the taskbar, the loading circle is interfering with it. Nothing will open and I am afraid of restarting my computer and losing the progress I've made. I have been able to open Task manager, an Intel application and Mozilla Firefox. That's about it so far. My computer is currently running at around 0.77-0.79 GHz, which is seriously slow compared to its maximum speed which is 2.20 GHz. I am looking into other apps that I can open. I seriously have no idea why the new update made my laptop so fkn slow.

After this, I am restoring my computer to the update before this mess came about. I have a Dell Inspiron 5000 series. I am unsure of the Windows version I had before the update, and I can't go past the loading page applinked. Forget about checking the version. I have a 64-bit laptop. Help?

Update: I cannot restore to prior the update as I did not create a recovery point (facepalm). If anybody has suggestions to uninstall this update (NOT windows 10), I'm open.

Have you tried rebooting Safe Mode?

How was your storage space prior to the update?

I don't own a Dell laptop. I know about the recovery media kit and have ordered before for my laptops. Helps to restore the system to a previous or original configuration (factory version of Windows that was shipped on the device). I think the latter option removes everything on the system {data, apps, updates, OS, drivers, etc.} before restoring. I think you can create the recovery media at home as well. You may want to consult with customer support beforehand to understand things and proceed with caution if you want to retain the data.

If all else fails, you can revert back to Windows 8 by setup and see if that works. It might not save all your data though so try to put your important data in a USB flash drive. So, if you don't have a CD drive, install the Windows 8 setup to an empty flash drive that has enough space for the windows 8 setup ISO. Look up on google (only google, not bing) on how to install windows 8 using a flash drive.

Create a Windows 8 ISO or find it somewhere online through Google. Download the windows USB/download tool from Microsoft and install it.
