  1. Windows 10 Monthly Updates


    Hello, I ran Windows 10 Update (2019-05)yesterday via Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update.

    As has happened in the last few monthly updates, I got to the stage of downloading/installing the 'Cumulative Updates' when the download stopped and I got a message to the effect that 'The Update has Failed as Your PC was not switched on' (!) even though I was watching the screen live at the time!

    After running the Troubleshooter (as I now seem to have to do each month) I get the following :

    'Potential Windows Update Database Error Detected'

    'Windows Update Components must be Repaired'.


    The Windows Update then starts again, sometimes installing immediately, sometimes after two attempts.

    Windows Update > Update History now shows KB4499167 failed to install 3 times 'Last failed install attempt on ‎14/‎05/‎2019 - 0x80240034'

    BUT

    Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Installed Updates shows KB4499167 & KB4497398 installed yesterday.


    Should I be worried?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 Monthly Updates

    Windows 10 update being enabled.

    I suggest getting off your high horse and not trying to do things which are not technically supported, like running OS on unsupported hardware.
    And fix your stuff, that performance drop is highly likely to not be "M$" fault.
    P.S.
    I am almost certain you do not do monthly updates.
