I wish I knew, or anyone knew, how so few seems to have these problems, yet it seems like everyone claims to be suffering. I have a staff of 31 and each one I supply with a desktop and a laptop and since Windows 10 was introduced we have had exactly 2 problems with updates. One was with my wireless printers and reinstalling the drivers took care of that and one started causing USB drives to disconnect but worked after uninstalling them from device manager and reinstalling after a restart.
2 reasons. People tend to complain and it's easier for them to complain about MS than admit they caused their own issue. Complaining is easier than trying to understand a issue.
2nd, people listen to articles/news and take it as facts. Not always the case. Or take it so that article said one thing when it did not say that. Misrepresenting a article or what one has said. Happens more than it should.

Majority DO NOT have issues. Yes there will always be various issues or problems that go unseen or noticed. Maybe some just aren't that important to a company until more people see it in the wild or if some other company brings it to light. That's common practice, maybe it shouldn't be but it is.

Also when some BIG issue comes out, then ALL the complainers come out saying how bad so so is. MS, Apple, Google, doesn't matter. All have users that complain about this and that. No company will ever make all users happy. Majority will likely be happy or satisfied with that company.

Apart from screwing up and removing the power management options it effs up my USB HID devices, EVERYTIME. I have only one keyboard and one mouse. I end up with 2 keyboards and 3 mice. They are both configured to wake my PC. WHY ??? Can any ***** of an engineer at M$ explain that ? HIDs.jpg

That is not all. Right now I am Ethernet 3 when there is only one in the hardware !!! Keeps reassigning a different what ever ID and screws up my netsh batch files.

Hid devices show a lot of that stuff for most computers. Not sure why but I sure someone in the forums can speak on it or a Google search could explain that.
As for the ethernet isn't because you changed or messed with your connection? At least that's been my experience when my ethernet # has changed. Again maybe someone in the formus can shed some light on it or just Google it.
I dont think those issues are specific to MS, more on the user I believe but I could be wrong.

Surprisingly, I have never had any issue with any Windows update, not only this one
I have Never had any problem with any windows update. Why?
I have NEVER updated my windows. I use an antivirus and that is it.

These are not made visible by selecting to display hidden devices. What I see is straight forward expansion of the 2 categories. I am not going to try to sort out the issue or fight with it so long as I was able to disable the two waking up my PC from any power state !

There something else funny with the latest update. I don't have the power options for my built in Realtek NIC so no way to activate WOL, that is within Windows. I can still power it on having enabled the PCI-E option in the bios. Honestly I miss that old time addon network cards that had a 3 wire link connecting the card to the header on the mobo to activate the function, regardless of the OS.

How long before MS finally realizes it's time to dump Win10 and start from scratch? This is getting ridiculous. If my car were made as badly as Win10, it would be covered in Chicken-wire & duct tape.

I beg of you, MS. Release an updated version of Windows 7... your last good stable OS... with DX12 support.

How long before you realize not everyone gets these problems.
Win 7 is dead. You gotta let it go.
Maybe windows isn't the OS for you.

Every month, a new buggy update. If you're not having problems now, give it a couple of months.

"Windows 7 is dead". Yet between 18%-25% of PC users are STILL running the discontinued OS with zero interest in crippling their computer with MS's buggy spam-delivery device.

"The DeLorian is dead! Time to upgrade to the new Yugo!" 🤦‍♂️

Dead as it won't ever get updated or comeback. It's dead. Move on.

I've given MS XP, ME, Vista, 7 and 10 all chances and rarely had many issues. Certainly nothing ever broke on my machines.
Win 10, while certainly not perfect, does NOT give me any issues. I mainly game with my pc and it works as it should. As do all my PCs in the house. So for me, I'm good with win 10.

I know of at least 3 of my clients who absolutely refuse to switch and use Win 7 for their accounting work and absolutely ZERO access to Internet. All the data is 100 typed in. The 10 year old VIA chipset based MSI hardware is still good. They don't even need any antivirus !!! Norton Ghost 11 came in pretty handy when they needed to replace the drive !!!
