Win 10 update 06-07-20.jpgWindows 10 Announced

I tried to get started again today and found Windows installing more minor updates. It took a while to get everthing updated and running, including Chrome. Windows kept partially freezing into unusability when I was using it after that, so I removing some later updates. The main, earlier May feature update is still in and not causing problems.

The May Update ran reasonably well this morning, but when I tried to surf this afternoon it wouln't start Chrome. I had to reboot to get to the Windows Update screen to return to the Fall Update. This Update isn't ready for primetime. It kept running sluggishly and requiring a reboot to do much. It wasn't a CPU problem, I had Process Tamer running.

Win 10 Update 06-10-20.jpgWindows 10 Announced

I didn't pause updates after reverting to the Fall Update, so this morning I had to re-install the May Update and later today I needed to install a May Cumulative Update. I had serious problems with it before and other people must have also(which was expected) so we got (presumed)bug fixes very soon after getting new features. After some fiddling, I was able to get back here again. It is working OK at this time, but I am waiting for problems to pop up.

After the last post, I still had big problems and I rolled Windows back to the Fall Update again. I hope my comments have kept people here from installing it also.

A month or so ago I thought I'd re-enable the Insider update, (had it enabled a year or two ago), and almost immediately ran into the same problem I had previously on different hardware and after having reinstalled Win 10 a couple of times.

Micro-freezes, every few seconds the system, (or maybe just the mouse/keyboard input), would freeze for less than a second.

Oddly enough during regular use I hadn't really noticed it, as soon as I started playing a FPS game it became blindingly obvious.
Tried different things, eg. completely disable firewall just in case it's MS trying to phone home, unplug non-essential peripherals, kill any of my usual background programs, etc, etc - couldn't work it out.

In the end I just reverted to the release stream and the problem disappeared.

Second time it's happened, basically a completely new computer and still no idea what caused it.

Anyone had anything similar?

Allowed the latest version of the May 2020 Update to install today. It took 4 hours to install and 1 hour spinning Windows Search(setup?) before I tried to come here again. Seems to be working fine this time, but time is a tattletale.

The results are in. The May 2020 still is a disaster that looked for a place to happen and found it. I provided 2 feedbacks with monitoring and waited for a patch. Nothing in response. I reverted back to Fall 2019. The question is: Will May 2020 be fixed before the Fall 2020 update or will the embarassment prevent that?

It's just trying to keep up with the year 2020 total disaster theme...

#Wraith808: I think that post belongs in Silly Humor. Do you have one to replace it here?

This is not a feature update. SAFE!

No, it was in direct reply to Stoic.  I didn't intend it for silly humor.

Win 10 update 07-14-20.jpgWindows 10 Announced

Another Fall 2019 Update. They seem to be moving it towards the Spring 2020 Update from the bottom up. Took around 2 hours to install.
