    Microsoft could do better

    Latest update: slowed my PC to a snails pace for most of Monday December 7th; caused MS Office documents to slow down and freeze (probably the MS Office updates did that); stopped action centre from opening; stopped 'start' from working; changed most of the icons pinned to start; caused Norton Internet Security to stop working (luckily only temporary); put ENG back in the taskbar; may also have been the cause of thousands of 'bad-block' events on my C drive (strangely since the updating finished I have seen no such events!!!!) and possibly other things I have yet to find!

    So ...
    Dear Mr Microsoft, when PCs are about to be updated it would be very helpful for your Customers (you remember them!) if you could arrange for a window to appear that says something along the lines ... 'The latest updates for (software names) are going to be downloaded and installed starting in 5 minutes. This may slow down your PC so best if you can save all your current work, close all open apps, make sure that power settings are set so that the hard drive does not turn itself off - set it to 'never', and then either go on to a PC running Windows 7 or go and do something else for the rest of the day, thanks'

    Being retired I could live with that and save myself a lot of time needlessly worying about crashes, BSODS, app corruption and all the rest. I think that it is called 'communicating with your Customers'

    There glad I got that off my chest.
