    I've done some updates to Windows 10.

    My main PC is AMD. Almost immune. Yay.

    My machine seems to always bug me to do this or that update, which almost always causes issues with my printer.

    As an appliance operator, should I just go hide in the snow somewhere? (If so, I need some of yours; I have none at this altitude)
