    Hi there
    It's fine for people on these Forums etc who I assume are generally far more computer literate compared with the average.

    My point was that this stuff shouldn't be necessary on updating essentially standard builds where people haven't done anything special to their machines other than adding stable working software.

    If You've already tinkered with a machine (nothing wrong for people capable of doing it) then IMO it's then not reasonable to be disappointed in an "update" doesn't work as advertised. My point was that updates for "Standard --Untouched by Human Hand" type of Windows installations should just work !!!

    Cheers

    I look at at it as checking oil and cleaning windshield, mot a must but it's good practice.

    For what it's worth jimbo, I agree with you 100%. The CU's should happen practically unnoticed by the end user, and just work without problems. Of course, people have been told they have to do this and that to their systems over the months and years, to keep them 'clean' and so forth, so the registry is often fairly messed up with non-standard stuff, leading to... more problems.

    I honestly believe that MS ought to take a dev cycle (6 months) and introduce 0 new features, and do a real bug blitz, consolidate code, deal with 'papercut' issues, simplify a few systems, that sort of thing. They've been trying to move a lot faster than they have the organizational and technical skills to pull off, and the result is a perpetually beta, rolling-release Windows.

    I always run them, SFC to check on system files and dism to clean up after updates. I also do that as part of check and cleanup before making backup, Can't hurt.
    . Really well said. And that is also my answer to @blueskyler

    I agree with Jimbo, it shouldnot be necessary to perform those functions, but as history has showed us, a CU can really screw up a good running system. I really don't do any preventive maint per say, but I do try to insure my systems are clean after any update. ie after my truck gets is oil change, I check the oil level to insure they did a good job.

    That would be an ideal system but as we all know that it's impossible and utopistic. It's good that those built in tools exist at all. It's like tool set on a bicycle.

    So what you are actually sitting on neatly summarises Microsoft's attitude to users.
