    And from where do you get "expert assistance". I have not met any experts in a long time.
    Coach used to tell me an Expert was a has-been drip under pressure lol. IDK, the basic stuff is posted all over this thread...backups. malware hunts. verify specifications. The user's Data should never be lost, their system should be readily restorable to a last-known-good condition.

    Beyond that, its try this-try that, look stuff up, ask for help; sometimes, pray a new os or update will take the issue out on its own..

    But somebody dedicated to the proposition, well they might just debug the installer from another system, figure out what exactly isn't working, and fix it. So far I have not had to do that, and I've run every microsoft operating system that ever existed.

    Hi,

    The other driver related event is "wudfrd" and the only available action for this is "manual or automatic".
    Actually it's more service realted than driver realted.
    What happens is that the service tries to update media content to external drives (usb or whatever). When the media is removed you then get this eroor and it reccours every time in event viewer.
    The solution that works for me is to disable "Portable Device Enumerator" in "Services.msc".

    Description of the service:

    Enforces group policy for removable mass-storage devices. Enables applications such as Windows Media Player and Image Import Wizard to transfer and synchronize content using removable mass-storage devices.
    Maybe setting it to manual works as well. Haven't tried that yet.

    Saying W10 installs perfectly is a bit of an overstatement really. Somme errors pop up on every install no matter what you do.

    Cheers,

    Create a Trinity recovery disk/USB Trinity Rescue Kit | CPR for your computer and reset/remove the administrator password. If you have to enable the Administrator account.
    Thanks, I'll give it a try. In fact that could have helped me out with my most recent hiccup. I use Macrium Reflect. Without it I would have been up the creek without a paddle on numerous occasions.

    In the old days there use to be a saying "If it ain't broke why fix it?" The rationale behind this saying was that if you try to fix or improve something that is already running smoothly, chances are you will end up causing more damage or cause some new unforeseen problem to emerge. Microsoft should have this saying plastered up in big, bold posters all over their walls. Often I see problems emerging from updates that did not really seem necessary. Tinkering for the sake of tinkering can sometimes lead to new discoveries, but it can also be very detrimental. It also seems to me that insufficient and hasty testing of new updates is the norm rather than the exception. Computer users do not like the idea of being used as guinea pigs, and I suspect the only reason why Microsoft are getting away with it is they have been offering the new software as a free upgrade. This brings me to the other sayings from the old days: "You don't get something for nothing" and "You only get what you pay for". If something is free well you shouldn't expect too much.

    And here is another old saying - You hit the nail on the head.
