    Is It Possible to Skip a Build?


    When I first got Windows 10, I experienced frequent crashes and hangs, and I frequently had to restart, because something wasn't working right. About a month ago, the system finally became reasonably stable. Yesterday, I upgraded to build 10586, and so far at least I haven't had any crashes or hangs, but every time I turn the computer on, I have to restart to get everything to work right. Is it possible to just ignore those build upgrade notices, so I can enjoy a stable OS for a while?

    Why should I allow the next upgrade if it's just going to cause the same issues the 10586.29 upgrade is causing? I'd like to have a stable OS for at least 3 or 4 months before upgrading again.

    ...sounds like there is some underlying problem that needs addressing.

    I spent 2 months here, and at Tech Support Forum, Microsoft, and Lenovo trying to find that problem and eventually I just gave up.

    Thanks, I'll try it. Anyway, my system might be stabilizing faster than I expected. This morning, I haven't had to restart. Of course, 1 out of 4 or 5 isn't very many, so I'll just have to wait and see.

    It's possible that I may have found the aforementioned underlying problem. Some time ago, I downloaded and installed all of the drivers I could find at Lenovo, and at http://www.techsupportforum.com/, I learned about looking for yellow flags in an elevated Device Manager. I've never seen any such yellow flags, so I thought that everything was fine, but earlier today, I used Windows Update MiniTool for the first time, and it told me that there were 6 available driver updates. I've installed them all, so maybe things will improve now. Also, earlier today, I remembered that on my previous computer, I had to reinstall Windows ME once a month, so even though 10 has been more problematic than 8.1, it could be worse.

    Edited to add:

    It turns out that updating those last few drivers didn't change anything. My windows 10 still ranks somewhere between ME and 8.1 in terms of reliability.
