Hi folks
sometimes I've run into problems where I can't get an insider update -- when I go to update it says you are up to date even though clearly not !!!.

You then try and go to insider -- but instead of getting your insider level and the edit screen you just get a useless "help with insider program" and then a whole load of nothingness that doesn't work.

Th best way is simply to use @Brink tutorial on how to change insider version via a reg keys - but DELETE them.

Then reboot system and via Windows update -- choose windows insider program and it should now prompt you to link an account etc --then after a reboot the updates should work properly again.
