  1. Windows update 20h2 slowed my computer


    Windows updated to 20H2 and my computer became unusable, then I did a system restore to a point before the update, but still my computer was very sluggish to the point of unusable.


    How can I fix this without doing a fresh install, because I do not want to reinstall my apps due to limited internet data?

    :)

  3. Do windows updates slow down the computer?

    Very late to this one . . . but of course Windows Update slows your computer. It's not rocket science. Updates are patches . . . added code. The more code your computer is required to read and process, the longer it's going to take to do it. The more bloated the code, the more RAM it requires.

    Or let me put it another way: most people update or replace their computers because they are 'getting slow'. Computers don't get tired with age - what could possibly be slowing them down?

    Windows Update and driver updates are the worst culprits. And the general advice to always update software and drivers is misguided.

    There are a million different configurations of PCs in the world. Microsoft and other manufacturers cannot test the software on every spec. Over time problems are discovered running software on specific hardware. e.g. Windows 10 running Firefox from an SSD, using intel HD graphics on an AMD dual core processor will hang if Adobe is installed.

    Microsoft or Intel with issue a patch to fix this. This patch will installed on every machine regardless of its configuration. So, even if you don't use Firefox, have an SSD or a dual-core processor your machine will run whatever patch code to accomodate the non-compliant configuration - thus slowing the system down.

    Do windows updates slow down the computer?

    New poster revives 4 month old thread that doesnt appear to be an issue anymore one way or the other. Seems legit.
