Windows Updates due Thursday December 13th

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

December 11th is Windows Update Tuesday!   Thursday the 13th is the day to install Windows updates.

Windows 10 Users.  Microsoft is slowly rolling out the "fixed" Fall Update.  Another complete new version of Windows 10.  

These twice a year updates take hours on slow computers and take a LOT of hard drive space.  Microsoft makes a complete copy of your current Windows 10, then downloads a LARGE file (the new Windows 10), then installs the new 10 and moves in your "files".  Again this can take hours and a LOT of hard drive space!  Many old computers have performance problems during this update.  You must be aware that this is happening and leave the computer running until it is finished.  DO NOT interrupt this process.  Computers with very full or small hard drives will fail this update. 

Only install all Important updates.

No Optional.


CCleaner Update 5.50 December 3rd

New CCleaner Update!

Another new version of CCleaner 5.50 has appeared.  

This one seems to install correctly.

Download the new version by clicking the link here ccsetup550.exe
In Google Chrome you must Save the file.  Make sure you know where it is going before clicking Save!  

Run the downloaded file by clicking on it's name in the bottom left corner.  

As always watch each screen closely as you click.  Don't let them install anything else!  Uncheck any Avast check-boxes.  

Delete the downloaded file after you are done.
