Friday night I was restarting the computer just to freshen it up. I do that periodically just to reset everything. This time...that little spinning "wait" think just kept spinning and spinning. After about 30 minutes it started shooting me options as to hoe to fix it. So I started following them starting with, what looked like, the least radical solution first. Didn't work...next stronger step...nothing...finally got to the point I had to "restore"(I think it was called) wherein I would lose all my apps but retain my data.
I'm thinking, that's not bad, I don't have very many apps. Got it up and running and everything was gone..trading program, e-mail, all of it...gone. Data was there but I couldn't do anything with it. My first mistake...not knowing what we used to call "a program" as in my trading program is now called an app. Otay.
I finally got it all put back together with some help from the Dell Neph. He said sometimes Microsoft would load on such a big update that it takes forever to download and put into the computer that many people think the computer has crashed and start doing what I did. Nice!
It all reminded me of the discussion we had a few weeks ago about allowing or not, in your case, Microsoft to update the computer.
Talk about a premonition discussion. :-))
