5.57 FAQ-906 Origin is slow and unresponsive after applying Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, 2017 (Version 1709)

Last Update: 7/14/2018

Some Origin users have reported that they have experienced slowness or "hanging" while performing certain operations (e.g. opening the Plot menu), following the application of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, 2017 (Version 1709). The problem is not confined to Origin and has been reported even in Windows-only operations (e.g. minimizing or maximizing an Explorer window).

Microsoft has subsequently released updates to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and applying these may resolve slowness problems.
