Hello everyone, it’s Mancat Monday and I’m here on the steps again. The last time I was here one of my pals said I looked a little sad. Oh, I wasn’t sad but this time I tried to smile for all of you. Hey, there’s nothing better than a nice smile. Believe me, I know, and this weekend the Dad wasn’t smiling too much at all, thanks to one of the most horrible products in the world, Windows 10.
Since our Mac died and we switched to HP and Windows 10, two big mistakes, we really haven’t had any problems with Window 10…until this weekend. We were forced into an update to the latest version. That’s when the problems started and the Dad let lots of HBO words fly, yikes. It was a mess and actually still is, not the best way to spend the weekend.
It was like it was a brand new install of Windows 10 or something. After the update, the first thing we noticed is most of the non-windows programs no longer existed. Our Photoshop, Firefox browser, Norton Security Suite and Malwarebytes were gone as was all of our Firefox favorites and our password manager program too. They simply didn’t exist any more. We don’t even know everything that was in our favorites at this point in time as our backup disappeared too. Speaking of backups, the iDrive program also was gone.
Even more fun, Windows 10 won’t save any settings. Anytime the computer is restarted all settings are gone. We have to log into Facebook, iDrive, OneDrive, Firefox and Adobe CC each and every time. Now that’s a real pain. Also, every time we restart any shortcuts on the desktop or task bar are also gone and have to be recreated.
Doesn’t that sound like fun? NOT! Oh well, the Dad says he has other plans so we’ll see. At least we got far enough to be able to do our blog posts. I hope you all have a totally fabulous Monday, I’ll be back again for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
