Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

Microsoft advise not to install the update on older PCs yet.

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

So it installed it tonight, despite me telling it to do it at 2 this morning. Nothing seems to have changed, start menu looks same to me as before the update. What exactly HAS changed in this Creators update?

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

so my pc with insider preview warned me it would expire soon, so I used the spybot anti spy beacon to enable everything again, windows then updated to creator whatever it's called, and now I can turn anti spy beacon on again

thanks for that tip

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

Indeed, at some point soon I'd expect there won't be any further security updates for the builds prior to Creators update - I believe at the time that the next W10 update is released.

Overall I've not had any issues with Creators Update - the only one I did have on my Dell laptop was actually down to a Intel display driver issue, and that's now been fixed as Intel and Dell have released a new driver.

I'd go further, I'd say at some point M$ will trigger the update by force and the only way to avoid it would be to disconnect from the internet.

Well my brother went to do the update and it just got stuck half way through it and thus he pressed a button to restore back to the old settings as he felt there was a problem with the update.

What he did can easily cause problems, unless it had been stuck for several hours in which case i would panic and do something similar.

I've not installed it yet as it was advised not to by MS last week.
