Oct Windows update is now.

Pick a spare 2 hours for this one, but it's well worth it.  ;D

Thanks Den.  I think I can delay it for a few months since I have Windows Pro.

Edge is already a pretty good browser - this sounds promising  :)

Having just seen this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZNOE4qSaDc ) I won't be seeking to update Windows 10 any time soon!

What a bunch of Muppets!  This is the reason I prefer to wait for 6 months before accepting the updates.

In my experience if you don't update there is a small chance of some malware knacking your computer. If you do update there's a big chance of the update knacking your computer. These days I try avoid them at all costs which is why I still use win 7 to make the avoidance a lot easier  :crazy:

It must be me   :D On both my desktop and laptop I have had no problems with the update at all. Edge now runs better than ever and I don't seem to have lost any files.

Apparently Microsoft has pulled the update so can all sleep soundly again.  Until the next time of course.   ::)

My laptop was set to update automatically, so on Tuesday it automatically deleted my photos and docs.  Now I just want to stab to death every **** who works for Microsoft.

I wonder if they are really deleted or just hidden?  Could they be found in the recycle bin?  Might they reappear when the update is updated?   :dunno:
