The update worked fine for me but it's still a buggy s*** garbage OS

Did they say a complete reinstall is necessary or did they say that you just need to use the recovery option in the OS?

As for not updating...

Have fun with your computer full of security holes.


These "security holes" are nowhere near as big of an issue as they are made out to be, and shouldn't have been there to begin with. If they would design an OS correctly security would never be an issue and updates would never be needed.

Have fun with YOUR computer full of security holes, just different ones.

In any case, if I find myself in trouble with viruses or whatever, I'll reinstall, at which time I'll be forced to be "up to date" and then you can stop worrying about my computer. I'll gladly email you to tell you when this happens if you like (you may be waiting for quite some time though and that could exacerbate your worrying)

If you’ve called Windows customer service, you’re not allowed to give anyone advice about computers.

Ever.


At that point I called simply to see if the problem was wide-spread.

After login I would just get a black screen, safe mode wouldn't load windows explorer either. I guess this happened to a lot of PCs after the creators update.


Not mine


Yeah, and the update worked fine on mine, but to be fair, just because it didn't bork our computers doesn't mean there isn't a problem with the update and certain hardware/BIOS/software etc.- and just because TC had problems doesn't mean EVERYBODY shouldn't update, as more than a few people can attest to having no issues with the update in this very thread. Personally I've had no major problems with a Windows 10 update so far, no changing of my settings/graphics drivers etc. though I understand these things are a possibility.

So why don't you use your incredible prescience and design an impenetrable OS that is immune to all possible security breaches? Apparently it's incredibly simple to build a 100% secure OS.

It is. Support no hardware, run no software, and accept no user input of any kind.

Yeah the guy on the other end of customer service as quite frustrated he had to keep telling people to re-install as the only means to fix it.

Apparently it's more common if your PC is custom built.

Yesterday was my day off and I had to spend it putting Skyrim back to it's perfectly modded state :(

I know my brother-in-law who has a somewhat custom pre-built from some years back said the latest update took an entire night to install, but it eventually went through and he had no problems with the OS itself.

Are you somehow of the mind that something should never be released to the public unless it's 100% infallible? You have a very optimistic world view, gotta say.

Every piece of software you've ever used will have a means to manipulate it somehow. That's why patches are a thing. That's why updates exist at all. If we waited until Windows 10 was completely impossible to break into, it would never be released and we'd still probably be using Windows 98.

Plus threats evolve and change over time. What once wasn't an issue suddenly becomes an issue.
