Second opinion] Last week a Windows 10 update, KB4038788, caused big problems with my computer. I got a black screen and couldn't get into Windows. At that time it was not a known issue, but it is now. I even created a restore point when I saw that Windows was going to update when I restarted the computer, but even though I restored to the point before the update, I couldn't stop the update from coming in, and the problem recurred. I have a contract with my new HP AIO computer, and a technician uninstalled the update and changed settings so that they don't come into my computer. Unfortunately, there a some things that Iam noticing (such as font size on desktop icons, inability to install a MS Solitaire app eve?n though the website says I own it and a nagging screen telling me it did not install. The agent remove the nagging popup.) I am told that next month there will be another update for Windows 10. I don't know what to do. I have little problems without the update, which they supposedly corrected, but who knows? If I let them come in, I may get the black screen or other problems. What should I do?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you today. To make sure I don’t miss anything, please give me a minute to review your question.

Ask Your Own Computer Question

I recommend you install the latest updates and trust that Microsoft fixed the issue. Since this was a known issue, Microsoft would have already solved the problem and put out further updates to fix it. Many problems with compatibility can arise by not updating a machine, such as the problem you are having with Solitaire.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
