If windows deleted crucial files of users, people should sue Micro$oft.

I got the perfect solution for these sort of trouble... either don't touch any ME products with 100 mile pole, or else dilate your ass big enough for it to be penstarted with a watermelon!

Windows update doesn't work after upgraded to 1809. Does anyone have the same issue as well?

My Lenovo ThinkPad W530 ran Windows 10 as late as a few days ago. Either the HDD is dead or Windows 10 has trashed the system. All I can get to is Lenovo diagnostics or a LAN checkup; Windows is kaput...for now. I'll be heading to Best Buy's Computer Geeks to see what's left. If it is a Windows 10 problem, it's back to Windows 7 Professional. (It works just fine on Ye Olde Lenovo SL410, which I'm using right now.) Fie on Windows 10!

Why in the everliving fuck would you not have several backups of more than 2 decades worth of work? Yeah, I call total bullshit. The Switch just needs to be more durable and have more stable controller connection, fuck all other features.

Nintendo had given up on trying to take down emulators and the roms, only to make money with the case they are building. They may not get the rom's, but they'll gain some profit with the case.

i got an "HP BIOS Update" today, and I just saw this video right after the update, it went through system32, and much more, I saw it went to the START START, SSSTTTARRRTTT of when you boot up your computer, its like command prompt, but just black and white, and it said "their may be several restarts, and LED lights??" like, wtf, what if people have epilepsy... I AM DAMN FREAKED OUT, I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO, HELP ME BEFORE IT HAPPENS, ITS OCTOBER, AND YOU SAID OCTOBER, PUBSLISHED OCTOBER 5, but the thing is weird is, that, why did everyone get it differently, you published it on the 5th, what if people got it on the 3rd then 7th then 11th now 16th?? LIKE A DAMN VIRUS, IM SCARED, HELP MEEE

For the last 10 years when updating my Mac OS, either an OS update or a whole OS upgrade, I have not once bothered to make extra backups of anything, and I also haven't lost a single file. Apple has the OS side of things pretty well handled, but they have been up to some irritating things with the hardware. I feel the Windows side wins on hardware (though Apple does make it looks very nice), but the Mac wins on the OS.

Apple: We released our new iMac but if you try to add anything that is not our product on these computers, we will implement a lockdown because we dislike anybody who is attempting to become a I.T. technician. The good side is that we have highly trained "professionals" who can fix your computer for around 1000 - 2000 dollars but in most cases cannot fix so we offer a 1 percent discount to get another iMac. Plus you can find all of our better version of keyboards, mouses and tablets at our Apple store ranging from 500-3000 dollars.

The classical Nintendo-Cartridge-System was the best ever, think about how to upgrade from Super Mario Land 1 to Super Mario Land 2! It took about two secounds and no files were lost! It took about 10 years to develop Windows, from 1995 until now they're still and only on debugging!!!

I'm still struggling with the April update which keeps rendering all my drivers useless. I've had to reinstall Windows twice. And windows keeps reversing my decision to turn off Automatic Updates without my permission. Switching to apple, or downgrading to windows seven. fuck it. Had enough.
Ken Smith (1 month ago)
Try linux. The nice thing is with some "live" distros, you don't need to even touch the hard drive. It is free to use and does the most common tasks easily.

So thats why my nvidia drivers keep uninstalling? Right?
I wound up having the 1809 win10 update forced, so I just let it run. I didn't lose anything in my documents folder, because i don't use the documents folder. However it did reset my bios and seemingly lost the drivers for my hard drives. Net result a freeze, and then boot looping into windows recovery. After about six hours and countless reboots I managed to get my primary ssd running, but couldn't get my second drive to run at the same time, as it would just go back to boot looping (all of my documents, my footage, audio files, games, and so forth are on that drive ). I've now managed to roll back to 1803 after much pokery jiggery, but given that I had a fairly major uni paper due this week I haven't touched it again since. Some time in the next day or so I'll be trying to get it back into the state it was in last thursday, with accessible files, playable games and mod cons like that. My problem is fixable, but many people would be facing a large repair bill in the same circumstances. Pretty frustrating over all. The funny thing is that i'd had forced updates switched off. and it updated anyway.

It's either u shut off the automatic Microsoft updates or back up all ur files with an external hard drive. Then u select which ones u need particularly on Windows 10
Ken Smith (1 month ago)
Back up and unplug. Don't forget the unplug part. While the drive is connected, Windows might decide to use it for something.
