I just updated Windows 10 Pro this past week (April 13th, 2021 KB5001330 patch). Why is it that Windows Update no longer works well? My display settings were gone and I sat in front of a blank screen for 5 minutes, as I awaited boot-up. Windows 10 Pro doesn't work. It's BROKEN! #Windows10isBroken
I am just trying to work on my Windows 10 Pro Dell, but I have suffered so much through the past year that I don't even want to use it.
The problems still persist in 2021, Windows 10 is Broken.
I must admit, all I had to do was to open my clamshell laptop to see my screen, but I didn't notice that the thing hadn't booted-up for around 5 minutes. It seems my phone is more reliable and productive than my laptop now that Windows 10 is failing after every Windows Update.
Once I could see my display again, I had to set the display properties to "Duplicate the Display" on both monitors, even though I had previously set this very setting at least half a dozen times in the past year. Why isn't Microsoft listening? Don't they use their own products, orare they all on Macs?
It's now well over a year since I started experiencing these problems (I had absolutely no issues before 2020), but since then they have come relentlessly, with each and every single Windows Update. Are you trying to tell me that I am the sole soul complaining about these issues?
Actually, I'm not. It seems that I'm not the only one with problems, but the other issues I hear of are much worse, so I am lucky.
The current patch (“KB5001330”) to Windows 10 that was distributed on April 13th, 2021, fixes 108 security issues to close-up holes for hackers. So, it's not like you should skip this update, but other users are reporting some severe problems with their systems after the update. Issues reported include that gaming has become impossible, a user login bug, and the BSoD (blue screen of death) for those that could get it installed. Others have systems caught in a loop, simply hanging on the instalation.
Apparently, "Some configurations of Windows 10 are encountering more serious problems thanks to a recent update “KB5001330”, with users reporting installation issues, performance issues, temporary user profile bug and worrying system crash." -Windows Latest
The problem is so widespread that on Microsoft's own MSN site, there's an article on How to uninstall update KB5001330 to fix issues on Windows 10.
These types of issues with Windows Updates has been creating havoc for users on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Pro since February of 2020 for me, and for others, much longer. I just feel that there is a complete lack of integrity over at Microsoft, now.
Windows 7 Ultra was better than Windows 10 Pro will ever be. Maybe Microsoft should just go back to that one, it worked.
Right now, the current state of affairs with Microsoft Operating Systems is only pathetic. I have no other word, people pay for this proprietary software (operating systems are often free such as Apple's for the Macintosh, iPad or iPhone, and some are not only free, but also open source projects such as Android, ChromeOS, Linux, NetBSD & Unix).
We could argue whether Windows is free software or not, but someone who is building a PC does have to acquire a license and the standard way of getting one is to buy one. Plus, even if you use some other means to get one, the fact remains that it does require a license that has to be verified to run in a supported state.
The User eXperience becomes crap when we have to deal with this stuff for no reason. There is no reason that any of my settings should ever get reset or a new setting forced upon me. Dealing with these Windows Updates has become a nightmare that I would rather not deal with.
After all, previously, Vista and 7 just plain worked. My settings were never overwritten or otherwise reset. I could be working on something, see the prompt to update the system, save my work, shut everything down, start the update, and once everything was done I would continue right where I was once my application reloaded my project. Now, I regret using a Windows PC for work, hobby and play. The nightmare of a Windows Update has become my constant daymare and I don't even want to use this peice of junk, anymore.

Even if I was just gaming, I did not regret my decision to play games on a PC. Now, I regret using a Windows PC for work, hobby and play.
