Windows 10 Is Getting Updated

Windows 10 Camera adds document scanning features for Insiders

Sometimes it's a minor thing, like reduced game performance, other times you could find yourself in a dreaded reboot loop.

This will send shudders of resigned recognition to all those who lived through the saga of nag screens that plagued Windows 7 and 8.x users when Windows 10 was rolled out as a free upgrade and made it very hard to opt out.

A couple of days ago Microsoft took a big step towards a less painful Windows Update process by introducing a new feature which automatically detects and uninstalls broke updates.

Microsoft's Internet Explorer, the internet browser that has been part of Windows since 1995, will not be a central part of the next version - Windows 10 - when it launches this summer. (Microsoft officials noted that some devices accidentally opted out of the Windows Insider program after installing 18356.) Testers who don't actually do a clean install when downloading this particular build seemingly won't see the 35-day pause option. All versions of Windows 10 allow for updates to be deferred, waiting a number of days after each update is released before attempting to install it.

Solskjaer Says Man Utd Have Quality To Win Champions League
Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was upbeat after his side were drawn against Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League , insisting that they would have to beat everyone if they are to lift the trophy.

Initial reports stated the pause button would only halt updates for 7 days, because that is how it initially showed up.

Failing to update before this date will leave machines vulnerable to hacking and malware, as Microsoft will stop offering any kind of updates and security patches, so it can focus on Windows 10, and those three people still running Windows 8.1.

This is not a guarantee that the extended pause feature will make it into the final version, though it's certainly interesting that Microsoft is testing it.
