    Wow, now I've not had that particular flavor of fun yet.

    I am sort of annoyed with the incessant updates this OS does. Is it really that complicated or are there that many people messing with it constantly? Either way, I wish everyone involved from the software engineers to the malicious hackers would just fuck off and leave it alone. I know, wish in one hand, shit in the other and see which one fills up first.

    Sorry about your luck Charles. At the school I am enrolled in, one class insists Firefox is the best browser for the curriculum while the third party entities they contract certain 'services' to insist I run chrome. PITA man!

    I tracked down an obscure and annoying hardwae issue on my new build, and will probably roll back the video drivers for my Raedon video card.

    Don't play games much, a little bit of Steam apps. But I had some weird stuff going on that was hard to find.

    I do like Windows 10. When I run Linux, it updates a lot too. And my older AMD needs a major Linux upgrade.

    I suggest an old System 36 Siverlake mini computer. Or a Sun workstation.

    I'd rather go back to win8 or even 7 for better memory management.

    I do appreciate how fast 10 spools up from a cold start though. None of my previous microcephalic OS could do that as fast as 10.

    This is a very simple fix ladies and gentlemen. If your Windows 10 session gets stuck during a system restart, press CTRL + ALT + DELETE.
    Afterwards, the restart screen will disappear and be replaced by the Task Manager.
    It will reveal the "hanging" programs that have failed to close; ie. a word document with a save prompt still open.

    That was one of the first things I did after it happened the first time. Nothing.
