hmm i think this latest update can caused some issues:

 

1. my night mode on the screen now able to change automatically

 

2. going back to Windows update, it take so long to search for updates....

nightmare on my 2 htpc's. Asus H97i-plus  and gigabyte H97N-wifi both with i5-4690k cpu 8GB ram and samsung 850 evssd.   Before update worked really well. after the update they both have black screen on wakeup, no cursor, no spinning circle just solid black screen but does have sound. On samsung 32inch LED TV's.  Been on intel site and downloaded their latestest graphic drivers and still no go. Have to get up and press reset switch and all fine until let it go to sleep or press power button on RC6 remote control to turn off. Then when press power button on htpc or on the remote it wakes to black screen. Before update all was great.

 

iHave downloaded earlier driver that is on asrocks website and all works well. Only problem is windows automatically updates it again and problem occurs. Something in new drivers causing problem. Need to find a way to keep old driver and not update to new driver as all is well on old driver





HTPC Intel Pentium G3258 cpu, Gigabyte H97n-wifi motherboard, , 8GB DDR3 ram, onboard  graphics. Hauppuage HVR 5500 tuner,  Silverstone LC16M case, Windows 10 pro 64 bit using Nextpvr and Kodi

I would love to know why does Windows 10 keep a 2.1GB folder for a useless game that was uninstalled? Or for Facebook or anything else that is not installed on this computer anymore? What a waste of space. Wife's 128GB SSD is running low and I can't even use this space.

I just went to the built in disk cleanup tool and selected the advanced "windows update" files and got 28GB back on my own laptops 256 SSD ... have you tried that @Freitasm?

 

 

 

Thanks for the reminder anyway!

Yes, that screenshot is AFTER running the cleanup took in Admin mode, including system files.

 

Interesting the Cleanup tool actually cleaned 4GB but after a restart Explorer reported an extra 10GB free...

 

Nevertheless, not happy to have wasted space on (crap, unwanted) software that can't be removed even when "uninstalled".

After the update, I noticed that the windows.old Folder held some 32Gb and over 230,000 files.  Research says that Windows will delete this after 10 days, but one can also use Disk Cleanup tool as well.

 

In fact, I used CCleaner app and the recovery reported was something like 42GB, and I could no longer see any remnants of previously uninstalled programs.

 

BTW, when deleting/removing programs/apps, I tend to use Revo Uninstaller as it runs a couple of in-depth searches for anything leftover from the standard uninstall process.

I'd like to know why MS thinks its a good idea to install that sort crap on WORK PC's

 

Tools, not toys. A concept MS still cant comprehend .
I suspect they are being paid for the rubbish they load up for us.

Updated this morning and its taken out mint18.2 running inside virtual box.

 

Apparently the cure is to turn off accelerated 3D which could be annoying, but manageable for me as it use it to hide my facebook logins.

 

There are reports of w10 automatically logging you into password protected apps in the background before you have entered the password (in the foreground).
