    Had to Backout Big Win 10 Update


    Whatever update happened yesterday gave me bad effects. The update was lengthy and added a slew of stuff - Cortana, Shopping, Weather - that I got rid of long ago. I've never had problems with updates before this.
    It was almost impossible to type, and some directories were inaccessible using File Explorer and Total Commander.
    Oddly enough, I could sometimes access them. Seemed to a problem with the disk driver.
    Anyway, I restored an image and everything is normal again.
    I disabled the Windows Update service. Until I get some answers I'll leave it that way.

    Clive K,

    Please go to Start > Settings > Updates and Security
    Select: Windows Update > Update History
    (You may have to re-enable WU)


    You will see Updates and their status, like Failed.

    Thanks for that info. Since I restored an image, I can't do it until I apply the update again. That might be a while.

    What version build number do you have for Windows 10?

    Right, like important security patches, etc.

    You have some underlying system issue that's preventing this update from going on properly. If it comes down to it, you could just do a clean install using the latest version.

    I'll get it updated soon, and use Cottonball's instructions for checking for failed updates.

    I just hope security patches are available as separate downloads in windows catalog, that would be easier, than to deal disabling Cortana (I don't really use her) and battling with Defender and the new "features" they added to keep it running even if you have an AV, that just conflicts with your AV solution...

    I used to do that with Windows 7 and zero problems... let's hope I can do the same here...

    Do you know by any chance if security patches only are available as separate downloads?

    Thanks for reminding me of the hassle I'm in for, deleting or disabling all that unwanted stuff MS pushes out.
    Maybe I'll wait a while longer, so I'm braced for that.
