The site and all the posts that used to be here were sent unceremoniously to the big bit bucket in the sky. Microsoft, in its ultimate wisdom, pushed the April (2018) “Creator’s Update” (#1803) into the server – and halfway through the update, it apparently found something it didn’t like – and hung. Froze.
Apparently this update caused lots of problems for lots of people. For many, the only solution was to reinstall Windows 10 and start again from scratch.
