According to your description, the issue seems to be pointing to the Windows® 10 update. I just want to know; is this the Turbo Boost app you are referring to; Download Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0?
To uninstall the update, try using the System Restore option. Find it here; How to Roll Back or Uninstall a Problematic Windows Update, last option.
I believe this update is the November Update, have you tried with the Creators Update?

bryce_w, my apologies because in order to use this option you must have created a restore point. But you can try the "Start up Repair" or the "Refresh this PC"option, use this steps; https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12415/windows-10-recovery-options
One more thing I would like to mention is that Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 app can only be downloaded from the site I mentioned before, the Windows update does not include this app within the update.
You can clearly see from my screenshot that no restore point was created on my computer when this update was installed.
Also, the windows update downloaded and installed the Turboboost app, because it wasn't on my computer before.
Are you suggesting I have to reset my entire computer?
The app should not have been installed within the update, the app has to be manually downloaded from; Download Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0.
Did you try the "Start up Repair"? If it does not work the "Refresh this PC" is just a suggestion.
No it did not and now I am getting daily crashes.
