    Windows Updates


    How do we know which windows update we should be on - I am on version 1803 - should we run all the updates or not 

    MC 2019.8 constantly crashes - I have 32Gb memory, run a memory test all clear 

    My Nvidia P1000 card is at version431.02 as recommended

    I have the latest BM desktop video version for intensity pro card

    Yet I get constant freezes in MC - really annoying - so should I update windows to latest updates or not?

    Any other suggestios would be greatly appreciated

    Re: Windows Updates

    Sadly with W10 you can only pause updates and can’t turn it off like W7. A recent auto update to build 1903 ran without our permission which also installed a much unwanted “Teams”. This made the user corrupt, I got an “We can not log into your account”. I tried everything out there to revert back including a restore from a backup image. I couldn’t get rid of it. MS tech support was no help beyond what I tried. After uninstalling Teams it would auto install on reboot. I ended up rebuilding with a new drive since I had to reinstall with a fresh OS install. I only mention this as a word of warning. If you google the avid compatibility matrix you should see what build is supported. I’d take it to the latest build supported instead of it happening on its own like it did to me.
