April 2021 Updates
« on: April 15, 2021, 05:29:36 PM »

Yesterday I did the usual monthly Windows 10 updates, which have always been OK before.  However the latest - KB5001330 - seems to have given me some problems in that the PC would hang on at boot up, and eventually having to go through the repair procedure. So for now I have uninstalled it, and it seems OK so far.

I'm just really posting this in case anyone else has any problems with it.  An internet search doesn't bring up anything specific so far for this particular update.

I have installed on my Comp, no issues so far :fingers: Windows 10 Snip has moved to a new location and a few minor fixes.

I'll wait and see if they issue a patch for it... could be just one of those things.

On a side note after a bit of googling about this I've discovered that it is actually possible to disable Windows 10 updates, rather sneakily tho. It involves changing your connection type to 'metered', as detailed here.

Not had any issuers on the W10 or Server 2019 machines so far. You can adjust updates via GPO lots of options there. If you need help most is on Google

Not got that far yet - I'll see how it behaves in the interim, as I suspect it's an odd bug with the update, and nothing more sinister than that.  After I did the repair at boot up I got into windows but experienced the same problem the next time I booted up, but as I said removing the update seems to have worked for now.

Group policy you can set deferral dates for updates and 6 monthly feature updates. Run gpedit.msc can provide help if you canít find it.

Can't be many people running 32bit these days, likely gets a lot less testing.

I'm at 19042.867 (32 bit version).

My 32 bit never presented the update in windows update yet other updates downloaded and installed. I had to go to Windows Catalog and download the 32 bit updater manually. No boot problems after install though. 64 bit machines no probs.
