    SOLVED Re-install frustration with Win10.iso after HDD replacement

    I spent the better part of a week trying to recover from a SMART failed HDD and replacement with a new HDD. First effort was to make a new copy of the Win10.iso file assuming a corrupted file somewhere. That didn't help. I got close a couple of times, but gave up waiting over an hour for the...

    SOLVED Brother MFC8660DN with Windows 10 re-installation

    I had a HDD failure that required me to re-install Windows 10 on a new HDD. For the life of me, I could not get the new install to find my MFC8660DN on my LAN. It worked on the previous installation that crashed, but now I am working with a new HDD/Win10. The info from Brother said that the...

    SOLVED I deleted "wuauserv" from services. Now I can't restore it. How is this done?

    I had already run the SFC but no help. I had forgotten about DISM. Ran that and it seems to have done the trick. Thanks.

    SOLVED I deleted "wuauserv" from services. Now I can't restore it. How is this done?

    I jumped at the suggestion on another thread to delete wuauserv and now I want to resume auto updates. I need help in restoring the .dll file or whatever. I don't know where to find the file to download or even if that is the issue. I am using Windows 10 Home and have version 1709 installed.

    MSFT should make updates selectable

    MSFT should make updates selectable

    This jewel should be more apparent. I have never seen this before. I ran it, but it did not find or unhide any updates. As a matter of fact "April" WAS sitting there ready to install but is now gone.

    MSFT should make updates selectable

    Thanks, Ben, but I did go to the Device Mgr... but I only tried to Update drivers from online sources. Guess I should have chosen ""Browse my computer...". I will try this next time. I kinda thought if the new Feature Update was installed, that I couldn't roll back the drivers at that point.

    MSFT should make updates selectable

    Under Win7 we had the choice to install a Kb or SP. Each new "Feature" update to Win10 comes with a new set of problems. April is a classic case. It took over 12 hrs to download and install, only to discover drivers for audio and video were incompatible. I rolled back to 1709 but next thing I...
