Windows 10 Update Week 34

As Second Life™ users you are likely to be interested in others experience with their Windows 10 installs. I’m working with a number of RL clients as I help them with their upgrades. We are mostly at the point of contacting the authors of the software they are dependent on.

I have found that the new Microsoft web browser is different. I am still figuring it out and I am undecided on whether I like it. My first impression is it is slow to load. After that it seems OK. Every menu item I use is in a new place.

Whatever, Shug has a post up on her experience upgrading 4 computers to Win 10. See: Windows 10 (and you thought Second Life updates were chaos!)

If you have problems with your DVD after a Win 10 update, these steps may help:

From Windows Support for the DVD drive:

  1. Run Command Prompt as an Administrator. Press windows key + x and choose command prompt (admin)
  2. Type following and press enter: reg.exe add “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0” /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
  3. Reboot the system

One thought on “Windows 10 Update Week 34

  1. So here is my experience with Win10. Even if you turn all the pricacy settings to private, disable Cortana and everything else, Windows 10 is still communicating with the Internet at a large scale and still keeps sending out the unique ID of your installation and still sends information to Cortana. Windows 10 is not save. There is a reason why it is free. It is a trap that will enslave all its users, similar to Android or Apple phones. I strongly advice to not use it.
