I'll let it run again tonight after I run a backup.

Thing is...every time it fails, it goes ahead and starts downloading the update files again.

My last update is from April 24th. Nothing seems to come along.

Has Microsoft banned me? :P

Although it had claimed to check just hours before, when I did a manual check it offered me the update.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I don't think it attempts to update everybody on the same day. Perhaps by asking for it you forced it.

That's right. I don't take any crap from Microsoft.

You give me that update, and you give it now.

My computer, Microsoft, and me:

Failed twice on mine. Gets to 87 percent and rolls back. I can't interpret the logs. Allegedly doesn't like some driver. I think I'll upgrade the video card next weekend. I'll be on vacation and will have time to drive myself nuts.

I have this error also 0xc1900101, I pressed the pause update for 35 days. Should be enough time to order a mac book pro.
https://www.windows10forums.com/threads ... 803.16799/
What a complete waste of precious this is. I started the update on my desktop after breakfast and it didn't complete till after my lunch, some 7 hours later. I then decided to time the update on what I thought would be the fastest of the 4 family laptops we have, a Lenovo Z50 series. All 4 started the update at the same time. These are the times to the nearest minute: Initializing - 22, Preparing to install – 1 Hour 8 mins, Awaiting install –16, Downloading – 6, Installing – 2 hours 39 mins, Restart, configuring, updating – 1 hour 33 mins, After login - 48 mins. A total of 7 hours 16 minutes. Put into perspective, I could have started this update and assuming someone clicked restart, could have driven 11 miles to my local golf course, played 18 holes, showered, had a beer or two and driven home to find the update still in progress. (To be honest the Asus FX 503 beat the Lenovo Z50 by just under two minutes, the Lenovo Thinkpad X121E was by far the slowest at 8 hours 27 minutes). Totally ridiculous in my view. Can't Windows do better than this or at the very least warn users that the upgrade is so time consuming?

New updates were available today ( :? ). Downloading + installing (numerous restarts) ~ 1/2 hour.

Both machines seem OK.

Mine wants to update but I'm holding off until I am of sound mind.

Funny, I mentioned this to a student for whom reality involves Linux. When I mentioned "Windows 10 latest update" he started laughing hysterically.

Windows error log reports that "The Stereo system failed to start."

Now what could have happened to my Stereo system?

↑ I presume this question is rhetorical… :mrgreen:

My laptop, which boots from HD, has seen its boot time go from 1:15 – 1:30 down to mostly under 1 mn. (Desktop boots from SSD, noticed no difference.)

Till the next upgrade. :P

The Stereo Service service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

Could it be a bit of malware that was removed, but something's still trying to call it?
I don't know of anything in Windows called the "Stereo Service".
I mean, they never fixed my stereos before.

It's something to do with the Nvidia card I have in the system. Seems that it installs an audio driver although I don't think the card has an audio port.
