My Win­dows Update needs un­rav­el­ling

Computer Active (UK) - - Letters -

This morn­ing I have suf­fered an­other lengthy update for Win­dows 10, cul­mi­nat­ing in pretty pic­tures ex­tolling the won­ders of this new in­tru­sion into my world. Do I want it? Not re­ally. Can I see any per­ceiv­able ben­e­fits? Most likely not. Are there ‘things’ that have been in­stalled which in­ter­fere with my pri­vacy or neg­a­tively af­fect my lap­top’s per­for­mance? More than likely. So will I now wait for the edi­tion of Com­put­er­ac­tive which un­rav­els and ex­plains it all? Sure!

I also run XP on three other ma­chines. I know where I am on those and, for the most part, know what I am do­ing. Call me a Lud­dite - fine - but my needs are sim­ple, like the vast ma­jor­ity of users.
