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?

Win 10 update 06-26-20.jpgWindows 10 Announced

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?

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.

No desktop clock.jpgWindows 10 Announced    Icon bar back.jpgWindows 10 Announced

When I started up my Gateway computer this morning, the Classic Shell desktop was disabled and I had the Windows Start tiles. Restarting and updating to the latest version didn't help and installing Open Shell didn't either. I added the tiles I wanted before I got my icon bar bar back by right-clicking on the taskbar and then checking "Show all notification icons" in the popup window. I then unpinned all the Start tiles.

I was just shoved the 2004 update, which wrecked my Bluetooth power management, resulting in constant disconnections. Had to revert back to 1909 to make my mouse and headphones usable again.  :(

For contrast, I've been using the 2004 update for a month or so and haven't had problems with it.

Sorry to those who are having problems. :(

Microsoft pushes out KB4023057 yet again to force Windows 10 feature updates

I've found the best way to avoid upgrades is to use hardware that Windows won't upgrade on  :P

I have a AM2+ system that Windows cannot upgrade past 1809 no matter what method is tried.

Meh, their crappy updates don't work on my system, only way I can update to the next versions are by reinstalling Windows, (probably not a bad thing).

Main computer is still sitting at 1909, won't update to 2004 or 20H2 using whatever means. Keep getting the same useless error messages that involve trying the same useless fixes.
