Don't install the windows 10 update Microsoft just pushed out

I did on Monday and spent most of Tuesday, reinstalling all the drivers on three devices 😞 and they are all still flaky 😞

Maybe it's time to mover on from Microsoft?

That link @Leapy results in an error 404 Page not found.

There's some odd characters at the end of the link, removing them takes you to the relevant web page.

Re: Don't install the windows 10 update Microsoft just pushed out

I don't like how W10 doesn't tell you it is checking for updates or installing them in the background. Several times now my laptop has been rendered unusable with disc and memory usage at 100%. There is no way to choose to install as in previous versions, only to mute them for 7 days!

I clicked on optional updates and found three drivers there with a warning not to install them unless I was having problems with the relevant software since I should already have had the latest drivers installed automatically anyway.

@Leapy 

Hi. What build got pushed?

In its settings, I have set my PC as metered so that MS can update very little and I always check at

https://www.tenforums.com/windows-10-news

to see what is being changed and other's experience of it

Re: Don't install the windows 10 update Microsoft just pushed out

I'm sticking with Windows 7 myself, never trusted 10 to be free of faults as ms have to much control of it remotely.
64 bit win 7 has enough clock ticks for it to run for millions of years. It's certainly good for my lifetime lol
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
