So I've been having some issues with Windows 10 as of recent. I couldn't figure out for a while as to what was happening, I figured maybe I downloaded a bad install or something like that.
Turns out that over the weekend Microsoft released an update to force all Windows 10 users to download security updates for their computers. This isn't a big deal for those of us that use the Microsoft Defender Anti-Virus (I don't recommend that), however, for those of us that don't use it, it turns out it's a bad deal. Being unable to deny Windows to update is a big issue for those of us who have software that should take care of the updated Windows components jobs. For example, a lot of Anti-Virus software 'clash' when they're both installed on a system, insisting that the other is a virus of some form.
Defender hasn't shown much issue with that in the past, but with this recent update, I'm once again questioning the abilities of Microsoft and their development teams.
So far the issues I've encountered are:
After updating Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, being unable to start my computer, encountering a black screen with no error messages. When moved, the mouse cursor appears and flickers back and forth between a loading bar and a mouse cursor with a loading bar above it. It provides no actual loading to the system and no matter how long you wait it won't correct itself. To fix this;
1. Jam down on that BIOS key.
2. Force it to switch back to a factory reset.
3. Loose all your data files, unless your system allows you to store it or you're storing it on a separate drive.
4. Stick with whatever system your device came with until Microsoft fixes their garbage.
The second issues I've encountered (this apparently only occurs to a specific group of NVidia Video Card users) ((Yay!)).
If you encounter this issue, there is currently no fix. Only patience (or switching to a non-Windows based operating system (Like Linux)).
It occurs only when a user is using software that is video driver intensive, like a video game. It creates a fault within that driver that clashes with the Windows OS until the OS shuts itself down entirely. Once it crashes, the OS will reboot normally.
Easiest fix: Don't play video games.
Realistic fix: Play games in short dosages.
Both fixes are garbage, and you have to be patient and wait for Microsoft to actually fix their programming. There is data out there that I'm probably not going to read through because I'm busy, but if you find articles please link them here.
