Windows Creator Update

Recommended Posts

I had that Bill Gates fiddling inside my PC again last night.  I really wish he would stop doing this.

After he'd finished giving me his Creators edition of Windows10 my TrackIr would not work.  I deleted the whole shebang and reloaded everything but to no avail.

Every time it wouldn't work I'd get a nice message from Bill and his friends that when they discovered a solution to this problem, they'd get back to me.    Nice.

In the end I rolled back the update and everything worked again.

  I don't mind Windows10 but most of the time I've really no idea what my PC and Bill and his friends are doing.

Did you try and switch the Pc off? Like really off? 

That fixed my Sidewinder issue ... it would not recognize it, just a USB device it found.

PC off/on fixed it brilliantly ...

(Yeah, still a stoopid thing, should not happen, but hey, it's Microsfot..)

Yes.  Off as in "leave that bloody computer alone and put your son to bed" off.

Just got the "Message". I will wait until more reports says it is safe. Have read some reports already whom claims it is like 50/50 having problems or not.

Well, a lot of that looks pointless for me - but I'll download it anyway at some point

I tried to install it yesterday but it failed :) however as its M$ it will no doubt force an install just as I am starting a gaming session, so I might as well get it sorted when it suits ME

Well I forced the update and stuff appears to work but they must have messed something up.

Since I only use my PC for flight sims nothing about this update appeals to me.  Internet security isn't a bother either as I don't do internet banking or anything like that and I'm too old and flaccid to be interested in any sort of dodgy websites - unless flight sim forums count as "dodgy" that is.

I do have a vast collection of laptops - eight! - which technically belong to Devon County Council.  As all the data on them lives in Babcock's* Cloud, if anything goes wrong with the latest model techie man comes over and gives me a new one.  No joke.

Saving the public's money?  Why would anyone want to do that!

 

*Babcock = yes, the defence contractor.  They also run Devon's education services!:blink:
