  1. Tired of updates that break things


    I know I am not the only one with issues surrounding windows 10 updates. I am venting my frustrations here -- hoping that whoever at Microsoft will listen to ONE more voice.


    I came to my office today -- after a windows 10 update to the latest platform and now I have lost 1.5 hours trying to fix things I use for work. I am losing productivity because of the updates and it is extremely frustrating. I can't get around them, can't hand it off to someone else. I am a sole proprietor who relies solely on technology to do her work -- and can't work when things are broken.


    PLEASE test things before you send updates to us to install. My software requires the updates. I have to install them as they are brought out. It seems like your review and QC department is lacking. This makes me want to switch to apple -- and forget windows altogether like a bad nightmare. Please, I implore you -- hear the community who is tired of having to fix things that are broken by your negligence to run tests and know what will happen if you do A, B, or C. There MUST be a better way.


    Sincerely,

    A very frustrated Windows 10 user

    :)

    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,
