Windows 10 Surprise, AGAIN!

Last Update: July 15, 2019

It Had to happen. I Just knew it was too good to be true!

I could not access any of my accounts, could not save anything to my Laptop despite changing my passwords and updating and restarting umpteen dozen times!

Oh how I miss my Windows 7! So, after some time in a chat with a Microsoft agent and trying umpteen different solutions, I final had to uninstall a program I have never used "Asus security manager" and Hey Presto, I can save again.

Messed up my days plan as I got up at 4 to write my articles and have spent 2 hours fixing issues caused by.......WINDOWS 10!

OH, HOW I MISS MY WINDOWS 7.

I now proceed with my work with bated breath....waiting for the next windows 10 surprise.

I have a laptop that I've given up on. It worked fine on Windows 7 but it won't stay happy on Windows 10. I liked Windows XP and loved Windows 7. Hopefully; it gets better.

Hi Dave, I have the same problem with an old SP laptop. It is now a cupboard model!

I have managed to get win 10 working on this machine...until the next update. Holding thumbs.

Mine refuses to update. Maybe I'll change it to Linux. There's free, nearly comparable software out there.

I need to find Linux and try it. That will be another first.

I love Linux. You can buy a thumb drive on amazon with the latest OS on it, to install.
Boot up from the drive, then install.

Ubuntu is a free download and install is easy. Plenty of help out there. It uses the Libre Office Suite instead of Microsoft, but has great functionality. No frequent updates and I believe all drivers and such are well tested.

Hi Bryan,

Sorry to hear about your encounter with windows 10. Glad everything worked out.

I remember a time using windows XP and got quite used to it, even liked it, then came millennium cause of the year 1999 was going to become 2000. A lot of people panicked. Millennium was the worst operating system that came, just my opinion. Then was your system windows 7 it was a good operating system I agree. Next came different versions on windows 8 that got scrapped. Now windows 10 is here and yes there are different versions to that too.

Just wondering how many people missed windows XP and how did they feel switching to windows 7.

Bryan you will get used to win 10 I am sure of it.

Best wishes,

Michael

Thanks, Michael. When it Works, windows 10 is great. My issue that every time it updates there is another issue.

I used XP for a while before upgrading. It was not too bad, It was however preinstalled on the machines and worked well. I find issues tend to come with upgrades and updates.

Trust they will get it right in the not too distant future. :-)

Hi Carol, I have no problem with getting used to it, it's the surprises that come with the updates that get me. :-)

I am frequently told to disable updates but I am concerned about security issues when windows is not up to date.
