    Windows 10 running issue after an app update


    Hello all,

    I'm trying to fix my next door neighbors Win 10 (home) desktop issue. So this much I know.... sometime around 12/18 the pc was doing an app update (AVG) maybe the home owner wasn't home at the time ... the end result was black screen and banner complaining about windows32.exe missing. My thinking is mayme you had a power hit during the update and some files/dirs are missing. I tried to boot the pc from a win 10 flash drive and do a restore but it failed. I found a way to get into safe mode ( booting off the hdd) and the restore finished but the wasn't right. Graphics was restored but somethings didn't work ...like the left mouse button on the start icon ... or in LAN settings proxy is default and can't be changed ... the apply button is grayed out... ie doesn't launch but chrome or firefox does. I had to use regedit to change 03 ( proxy is enabled) to 09 automatically detect settings) and that allowed the internet to work. And there's another issue right click start - settings doesn't work and neither does right click on desktop to change display. I just can't find anymore restore points on his PC. My pc is win 10 pro and his is win10 home ... that shouldn't be the issue correct ??? he is admin in user settings. I just can't believe that this problem can't be solved .. after it's win 10. I have 2 desktops one is win 10 pro and the other is win 7 pro ... my win 7 is powered down but the win 10 is on ups so could that be the issue .. loosing power during an update??? I forgot you also can't save anything onto the task bar.

    Thanks

    Dale G.

    :)

  2. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP

    Windows 10 KB3213986 Update Cripples Multi-monitor Gaming

    The recent Cumulative Update for Windows 10 (KB3213986) cripples multi-monitor gaming, looking at the way Microsoft worded its "known issues" text. After the update is applied, users with multi-monitor setups could experience screen stuttering or clipped screens when running 3D apps on machines with more than one monitor. The only workaround Microsoft suggests for now entails running your 3D apps in non-fullscreen modes, such as windowed-maximized (pseudo-fullscreen) or windowed modes. Microsoft also goes as far as to suggest that people with multi-monitors could try starting their 3D apps with just one monitor connected.

    "Users may experience delayed or clipped screens while running 3D rendering apps (such as games) on systems with more than one monitor," the change-log for the KB3213986 update reads. "To work around this issue please consider the following options: 1. Running the application in Windows mode (not full screen), or 2. Starting the application with only one monitor connected," it adds. The update effectively cripples multi-monitor gaming, using technologies such as AMD Eyefinity or NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround.
