  1. Latest Windows update-printers impossible to use


    I automatically installed the latest Windows 10 update several days ago. The next day, all of my applications were slow to the point of almost being unresponsive. In addition, I couldn't connect to my wireless printers. After spending the better part of a day on a call to tech support, I got one printer back. The other was impossible to recover. In addition, the next day I couldn't even open Outlook and file explorer took around 2 minutes to load each time I used it. Back to tech support and another half-day on the phone. The tech ended up restoring my old Windows 10, prior to the update. Now I'm getting messages from Microsoft that my version of Windows 10 will no longer be supported after some time in November. Any one have a solution to this? Microsoft doesn't seem to. Nor do they appear to care.

    :)

  3. Unable to remove a printer gone in "Unspecified" group

    An outdated, or incompatible printer driver could be causing the issue. We suggest that you update your printer driver, or
    uninstall the printer driver; then, restart the computer, and have Windows install the latest driver automatically. Check the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
    • Locate the printer driver and uninstall it.
    • Restart the computer.

    Keep us posted.
