These days, updating Windows is like playing Russian Roulette.
Microsoft keeps breaking things, and I have to continually figure out how to fix them.
I recently had ANOTHER problem with Windows Update.
After trying everything, this is the solution that finally worked for me!
Don’t worry: they’ll break it again soon enough!
So you’ve tried to fix Windows Update, but it just won’t work.
Even my earlier solution didn’t work…
Never fear! There is a way to essentially ‘reinstall’ Windows Update that will fix it good.
But first, there’s one other step you should take to make sure this never happens again…
Ah, the internet!
It’s so incredibly useful, and at the same time you won’t find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Well, technically, it’s more useful than villain-y.
Still, it’s good to be careful!
So what’s the best way to stay safe when using the internet? Strong passwords? Antivirus? Browser add-ons? Privacy enhancers? VPNs?!
That’s all well and good, but there’s one trick that will never let you down…
These days, you might not want too many Windows 10 updates given all the problems they tend to cause.
But the fact remains that if you can’t update Windows at all due to some cryptic error message, you’re still in trouble.
You’re missing out on security and reliability updates that you obviously need!
What to do when Windows Update keeps giving you the dreaded ‘Retry’ button along with an obscure error message that it can’t update??
In recent years, Microsoft hasn’t done a very good job with updating Windows 10.
Even those updates that are ‘fully tested’ often end up royally screwing up some computers. Everyone just assumes that a new Windows Update means crashes, blue screens, and stuff that doesn’t work anymore.
What if you could just roll back your PC to before the update, and prevent it from installing again?
Well, you can!
And it’s much easier than you think…
Yet another new ‘version’ of Windows 10!
This time, they’re calling it 20H2 (as in 2nd half of 2020) instead of 2010 (as in October 2020).
I guess the old numbering scheme was getting a bit tiresome since 2004 and 2010 make it sound like the new Windows 10 is already over a decade old…
As with Win 10 1909, 20H2 isn’t really a “Feature Update” – it’s just a regular large update that doesn’t require a long ‘upgrade install’.
Just reboot, and you’re done.
So what’s new??
Windows 10 2004, called the Windows 10 May Update, was released eons ago.
Despite the fact that this version was tested for ages, it still managed to cause various headaches for many users.
That’s why you probably don’t have it yet – but you will soon!
So, what’s new? What about all the Usual Stuff?
Let’s take a look…
Yet another new version of Windows 10!
A new update to Windows 10 was released just a few days ago, and once again the rollout was quite smooth.
The difference this time was that 1909 isn’t really a “Feature Update”.
It installs very quickly and changes… well, pretty much nothing!
Let’s take a quick look.
Another new version of Windows 10!
A new update to Windows 10 was released a few weeks back, and this time the roll-out seemed to be way smoother than the last version – which is nice.
I got the update fairly quickly this time around, which almost never happens.
The update went off without a hitch. Naturally, I immediately started poking around to see what changed.
Well, not much… But as usual, there are a few things to re-tweak!
It’s that time again!
A new update to Windows 10 was re-released a few weeks back, and it appears that it’s FINALLY rolling out to end users.
You may have heard that this update was the October 2018 update. It was, but then there were “a few problems” like people’s files disappearing.
I finally got the update on my desktop and lappy, and I’m happy to report zero problems.
It seems this bad boy is finally ready for prime time. So, what’s new in the features and privacy departments??
