Looking for help with an ever occurring problem with updates to Windows 10. Back ground, computer was purchased a few years ago with Windows 7 operating system. Always worked great! We have a DSL from Frontier with enough speed to do most things we want to do.
Along came the Windows 10 free upgrade and I have had off and on problems with some of the "automatic" update downloads installations. Sometimes they just lock up the computer when they fail to install. The only solution I have is to cut the power to the computer and wait 5 minutes or so then restore power and let it try to restore an earlier period. Can't turn the computer off with it's own switch, have to cut power at the surge protector.
This always gets it going again but sometimes has to be done twice.
So is there anything a computer illiterate like me can do to solve the problem, or just learn to live with it? Go buy a Mac?
