Around here, no issues.

However the office and home is clear of malware and no toxic combinations that you may read about. That is we'll just have one antivirus installed and may uninstall antimalware during the update.

However the one thing that many forget is this -> "We only lose what we didn't backup."

Vista SP2 causes problem with DragonNaturallySpeaking10
by cassiodorus--2008 / August 22, 2009 7:15 AM PDT

I had DNS10 installed and running just fine (Vista Home Prem SP1) and then, fool that I am, I installed SP2. DNS10 would not load. The Nuance people (they make DNS) or at least their outsourced tech support, said uninstall DNS10 and reinstall. DNS10 would not uninstall. Got the dreaded error 1722 message (this is from the MS uninstaller). I used the Nuance Removal Tool and ran TuneUp agianst my registry so everything looked ok. I then tried to install DNS10. Got error 1722 qgain. Occurs just at the very end of the installation. Any ideas (short of uninstalling SP2)? I see that SP2 is bundled with msi.dll version 4.5, an "upgrade" from the former 3.1.

What is "tuneup"?

Sorry but I find registry cleaners to be a big source of trouble (and income!)

A reliable package of handy routines. Tuneup Utilities is not the problem. I ran it long after encountering the problem.

How do you know?

How do you know? There could have been problems on your system caused by that program since the first time you ran it, but by dumb luck you never actually ran into any of them.

More times than not, Windows service packs are expediters of existing problems, not the source of them. Meaning you may have malware damage or some other problem that you were unaware of, but that was brought to a head by installing the service pack. The problem was there prior to installing the service pack, you just didn't know it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
