    How do you do that, if you cant get to it. This upgrade has been a DISASTER.

    I'm unable to do anything. During the download, everything seemed fine. It started to install apps. It then said "This is taking longer then usual, it should finish soon". I stepped out for about 10 minutes, came back and desktop was flashing with no icons. I'm unable to do anything.
    Hi,
    same happened to me after upgrading to wdw10.
    I found this in another post and it fixed the problem on the first try:

    There is a simple fix

    Open task manager ... under file (top left) "Run new task" ...
    type msconfig (yes it is hard to type as screen blinks, but it can be done) ...
    In the new box that opens (it may be behind the task manager box) go to Service
    Tab .... Scroll until you find 2 tasks that need to be stopped ... (1) Problem
    Reports and Solution Control Panel Support .... (2) Windows Error Report
    Service.... Disable these by unchecking .... Click Apply ... Click OK ... If
    you are prompted to restart, then restart computer .....


    Worth a try!!

    Regards,
