Serious problem following the Windows 10 Anniversary (version 1607) Upgrade
My PC has downloaded the above Microsoft upgrade and now freezes-up at random.
Apparently, this only affects computers with Solid State Hard Drives
but it's frustrating, tedious and extremely annoying.
Plus, my BP is high enough as it is!
I'll try to make regular uploads but, like many others, I'm awaiting a Microsoft fix.
If uploads stop altogether, blame Microsoft. I'll probably be looking for another hobby!
1. PHOTO GALLERY
