    Windows 10 Sept 2020 update has killed my Start Menu and slowed my computer to a crawl


    Windows 10 Sept update has killed my Start Menu and slowed my computer to a crawl. I dont understand what has happened. I first thought it was a virus but then I thought I have Norton 360 and MCAfee virus protection on my computer and network so that could not be it. I started researching the internet and determined real quick that I’m not the only one. Okay Microsoft what is the fix?

  2. Computer slowed to a crawl after Windows 10 Update

    Hi, I upgraded to Windows 10 some months ago and have had no problems until now. Windows released an update not to long ago. Since the installation of that update, my computer has slowed to a crawl. It will take 30 minutes sometimes for it to load, getting
    files open or programs started is impossible.

    I would like to remove the update but I can't even open the Start menu.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anyone know how to remove this latest update?

  3. Microsoft Patch Slows Computers to a Crawl

    Microsoft’s automatic updates system has once again found itself in the limelight following an issue with Windows Desktop Search 3.01 which has slowed thousands of computers and is causing havoc for IT technicians around the world. Despite client computers being configured only to update currently installed software, numerous blogs have reported that the Desktop Search software is installing itself and then hogging resources by loading an indexer, resulting in client computers slowing to a crawl and file servers struggling with the increased load. A Microsoft spokeswoman says the company is looking into reports, but IT administrators won’t be too impressed with Windows Update at the moment as this comes just weeks after news that the update services secretly downloads and installs updates even on computers with automatic update disabled.

    Microsoft Patch Slows Computers to a Crawl

    [sarcasm]Nice title... doesn't make anyone think that it's an actual update at all![/sarcasm]
    Seriously though this is an update to an obscure program that noone really uses anyway and the article title makes it look like Microsoft "yet again" has screwed up everyones computers. Gawd I hate seeing these sort of things......
    Title should be "Microsoft patch to Windows Search Slow Computers to a Crawl"
