You know how that window pops up “Undates Are Available”? Well, I took an update.
“Turn off any open programs before you begin the install.” I followed the instructions and started the download. It was taking forever, so I went away to do something more constructive than look at an unmoving screen. When I came back, I get to see a message I’ve never seen before: “Windows Recovery” is trying to automatically fix Windows problems. Guess what? It couldn’t fix it. I must have talked to five different people trying to figure out what was wrong. As soon as I said I took the update, without fail I was asked, “Why did you do that?”
So, the moral of this story is do not presume all updates are good for your computer.
Lucky for me, between tidbits of information from everybody I talked to I figured out how to save my files and get back up and rolling.
Second moral of this story is BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP.
Even though I was only down a few days, my blogaholish was causing me some serious withdrawal pains.
