The opinionated ramblings and muses of a weary web victim.
Either it's 50% OK or 50% crap
Published on September 13, 2016 By Jafo In Personal Computing

I have 4 computers running Windows 10.

On all 4 I've either avoided by deferring and/or simply not been in the rollout of the Anniversary Update yet.

So I decided to treat [?] Terry to the new and 'improved' Win 10 and loaded it on hers via me 'forcing' the update.

And all worked fine....even improved some graphics glitches [as in eliminated them, not made them bigger].

So...

Armed with an exuberance of confidence [you know....confidence - that feeling you have immediately BEFORE you fully understand the situation]  I decided to encumber my i7 laptop with it too.

'Seemed' OK ....pretty slow to boot initially...but so be it.

Then I tried doing something.  Just then, a 3 toed sloth rushed past me followed by a phalanx of snails....

I had just discovered a new interpretation of the meaning of 'slow'.

Text input.

You could transcribe the entire content of War and Peace before the first character registered on the screen.

Googling on this machine was a giggle....I discovered Microsoft had created a time stasis for everyone to lose themselves in....doing nothing FAST.

Tried a few 'solutions' [I use the word loosely]...and input was .....um.....less slow.

Managed to 'request' this 'improvement' to bugger off and give me back my old 10....

....which it has....now.

So....

Next plan is to go back to that 'defer updates' setting and defer the fucker out of them until such time as someone at MS is summarily executed for being useless.

 

I have always maintained....forced updates will be the death of Microsoft...and they are too stupid as a collective gestalt to even realize what's currently gripping their gonads and squeezing slowly......

Not alone in that. MS proved Forrest Gump right yet again. ["Momma said, "Stupid is as stupid does.""].

I am actually only having problems with the clock, so far, on 2 laptops, and 3 desktops.  Go figger.

Hi MS...how you...

I will NEVER upgrade to AU! If I get a forced update, Microshit will wish they NEVER heard of me! Heck, my Windows 10 did normala updates today (if there is anything normal with Microshit), and one update failed to install. So it took forever it to undo the changes, but finally it booted into 10 again. So screw it, I am back on 7 now, I'll mess with 10 some other time.

The problem is most likely that your hard drive is now working at 100%.  This behavior seems to have carried over from Windows 8 (thanks Microsoft!)
You will need to do the following;

Hold the "Windows & R" keys down to open Run window
type  Services.msc

in the list of services find and disable
Superfetch
Windows Search

That should be it, restart your laptop after doing this and notice the speed difference.

Nope....didn't occur on this laptop with 7....8....8.1....10...

Not until 10 AU, and the system was 'idle'....imitating death....an ex-parrot.

Fell off its perch...shuffled off this mortal coil....snuffed it....

 

It's back running 10 with zero issue.

Well I think I will try it; even though my laptop runs fine.

I shut it down, but are you sure this is a good idea. It sounded important.
