Windows Updates due Thursday May 16th

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

May 14th is Windows Update Tuesday!   Thursday the 16th is the day to install Windows updates.

Windows 10 Users.  Microsoft is still rolling out the "fixed" Fall Update 1809.  Another complete new version of Windows 10.  The 1903 May update is soon to follow.

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. 

We can do the 1809 Windows 10 update here for you.  You will have to leave the PC with us.

Everyone else. (Windows 7 & 8.1)  Only install all Important updates.

No Optional.
