  1. Stupid Updates Keep Messing Stuff Up


    This is the second time an update has screwed up my computer. The first fix was easy, using system restore. But NOW, I cant do anything. Everything I try to open says "class not registered", including settings. Advanced startup options doesn't give me the options to reset or anything, just to restart. Safemode doesn't work either; when I boot to it, it says hard failure or something, and won't let me do anything. One of the worst parts is: I can't get out of safemode to save my files before I do a complete reset and start completely fresh. I used the tutorial from https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/3-check-system-restore-working/ and now I can't do anything, so my computer is a very expensive and important paperweight. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :)

    Shortcut key for "My Stuff" ?

    Using Windows 10, here's the steps I'm taking to search for files on the computer:

    • Click Start Menu (or tap the Windows key on the keyboard)
    • Start typing a search term
    • Click "My Stuff"
    • When it finds your file, click it to make the file open
    • If you want to open File Explorer and peruse similar files without opening files:
      • After clicking "My Stuff" (in Step 3) go to the bottom area under "Other places to look" and click "File Explorer"
      • File Explorer opens

      Question: I don't want to use the mouse to click "My Stuff" in step 3. Is there a shortcut key?

    Stupid Updates Keep Messing Stuff Up

    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 Stupid Updates Keep Messing Stuff Up :) Best regards.


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