    Build 10074 broke my system


    My computer just updated to 10074 and I can get the start menu to come up at all no matter how many times I click on it. I had a problem with the task bar on the bottom being too big but now its the right size. It seems like every update something is fixed and then also something else is screwed. Also when I do windows key +e I cant get a windows explorer window to come up either. Any suggestions?

    p.s I also STILL have issue with Action Center no coming on when I click on the white icon on the bottom right!!!

    Restore your PC to a previous time, BEFORE you got 10074.
    That's just standard Operating Procedure. (SOP)

    Have you ever done Beta Testing before???

    When you do an install from a DVD, the installer will give you the option, to either do an upgrade type of install, where all your old data and programs are saved.....OR, it can do a destructive install where everything from the previous install is lost.

    I take one extra step and tell the installer to "Format" the C: partition, so there's NO possibility of mixing of data from one OS to the next.
    I have had a clean install go slightly off course and leave me with a corrupted OS. Another Clean Install usually fixes that.

    One other thing I do is to make a backup of each new build, before I install another build. Then if the latest build goes South on me, I can just restore the previous build and "Keep on Truckin' ".

    There's a LOT to this Beta Testing thing, and some people are just not properly trained or prepared for it.
    Those people should just leave it alone.

    Cheers mates!
