  1. Key Windows features and Edge break in new update, older PC.


    Hi, I use Windows 10 1909 on a older 2011 Thinkpad X220 laptop with an i5-2540m-HD3000, 7200rpm HDD, 4gb DDR3 RAM.

    As of the update about a week ago, I have been unable to:

    -Use the search function in the start center

    -Run some applications from the file explorer

    -Use any version of Edge I personally use the dev channel, but no version, even the non chromium one, would work

    -Properly use the file explorer, works, albeit very slowly and jankily

    -Navigate and use settings and control panel

    -Use Ctrl+Alt+Del It does nothing

    -Quickly change tasks, upon running an application it appears in the task manager, uses a large amount of computational resources, then might appear on screen after some time.


    Other problems may exist, but those are what I ran across in daily use before I uninstalled the update.


    I hard started the PC and used the recovery options to uninstall the most recent update and my PC works fine again, but this means that I will no longer be able to get security patches and features that I may want. Any help is appreciated, and I hope this helps y'all improve the stability of future patches.


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Pro and Ergnomic Break Reminder

    Hi,



    Apologies for the late reply.



    Do you remember installing any break reminder software?



    It looks like it is a pop up from a break reminder software.



    I suggest you to look for this in Programs in features and uninstall it if do not use it.



    Try the following steps:


    • Press Windows + R keys to open Run Command

    • Type Appwiz.cpl and hit enter

    • Search for the programs and un-install it.


    Regards,
