    February Update Disaster


    My computer decided to force an update on me on 2/28/20. When it re-booted, I lost ALL my pictures/files/folders. This happened back during the "lovely", Octobre 2018 update. I even lost my "favourites", book marks, etc. from Google Chrome, as well. I tried to un-install the update, but when I did so, and then re-booted the computer, the computer forcibly re-installed the update I was trying to get rid of. Is there any way to re-cover the disaster THIS latest update has caused? Also, my touch screen still does not work after the 2018 upgrade. Is there a link to where I might be able to re-install that programme? Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

    :)

    Intel to Start Shipping B3 Stepping Cougar Point Chipset from February 14

    Intel seems to have fast-tracked its Cougar Point chipset flaw rectification. The silicon giant claims that it will be in a position to start shipping B3 stepping of Cougar Point chipsets (Intel P67, H67, etc,) from 14 February, to OEM partners. According to the latest PCN (product change notification), number 110456-00 dated 2/9/2011, Cougar Point B3 will carry the following changes/features:
    • Revision ID will change from 04h to 05h
    • BIOS Update (Revision 1.1.4 of the BIOS Specification Update and Reference Code)
    • B3 stepping package is pin compatible with B2 stepping package
    • Minor metal layer change from B2 to B3 improving lifetime wear out with no changes to functionality or design specifications
    Of the above, the last bullet point affirms that the SATA 3 Gb/s port defect issue, which caused physical parts of the chipset to wear out abnormally fast, degrading performance, is resolved.

    February Update Disaster

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond February Update Disaster :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
