DoctorLaptop – Another “I told you so” Moment – Microsoft Suspends Windows 10 Update Rollout After Users Report Deleted Files
Hi readers, in the past month I posted 2 warnings regarding the upcoming Windows 10 semi-annual Update due this month. I suggested everyone using Win 10 make a System Restore Point, or better yet make a Disk Image Backup, as soon as possible, certainly prior to doing this upcoming update.
Guess what? Microsoft just recalled the October update and warned users NOT to install it. There have been many reports the update will break you computer and may also permanently delete some data files!
Did you heed my warning? Did any other techs warn you about this? Just one more reason why people drive all the way from Mortil or Malaga to have their computers serviced by DoctorLaptop! I ride the crest of the wave while others remain in the kiddie pool. How? I do my homework and take the time to read the corporate whitepapers and follow Microsoft insider blogs.
The next time you need your computer serviced consider that a few extra miles drive may very well be worth the small inconvenience in order to have the job done by a dedicated computer pro, DoctorLaptop!

Located in Canillas de Albaida. Can anybody help with where to take it for professional handling with care within a 50 km radius? Or is there a carpet cleaning service with Persian rug experience that can do the job on the spot? Any advice sought, also on likely cost. Lyn.Harrison @ insightwind.com (no spaces)

Disappointment: Saturday night I had the chance to watch some excellent entertainment at the Trapiche restaurant Trapiche, this show was put on to raise money for charity. The dancers, singers were first class, showing how much time and effort had gone into producing a quality show, BUT to say I was disgusted, very disappointed, and find it unbelievable that mature adults? find that they were unable to keep quiet when the show was on, continuing to chatter, laugh, more chatter, put a slight dampener on the show for me. Maybe the next time they attend a show, they will have the good manners to be quiet and allow others to enjoy the entertainment. Once again well done to all those who performed so well.
