On Friday I checked for an update on Win 10 and 1809 was pending. After a very long download and multiple restarts it finally finished. Since the install the boot time has significantly increased as well as the shut down time.
Has anyone else had this problem? I know 1809 was pulled last October and BTW it still states an October update in the listing of "View Updates"
I am wondering if MS again did not do their homework and make sure this does not have bugs in it. Regards, Dan Kahn
Following my January Win 10 OS hard drive failure, I see that "1809" is listed as a failed installation on the date I received the replacement hdd and restored a backup copy. Subsequent to that, I see the "1809" update successfully installed about 2 weeks afterwards.
I saw no slowdowns. If anything, it has sped startup and shutdown a noticeable bit.
For the record, the dead hdd and the replacement were identical so that should not have been a factor.
I did have to change back some security and privacy settings following the "1809" update - so you might want to check that out once you fix your current problem.
No problems here on multiple machines. Have you run any diagnostics on your hard drive? I often use Defraggler and look at the Health tab. Do not go by Defraggler's green "Good" indicator, you have to look at the actual numbers. High values for Command Timeout or Spin Up Time are indicators of a failing drive. Also check Reported Unrecoverable Errors, Current Pending Sector Count, Uncorrectable Sector Count and UltraDMA CRC Error Count.
Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.
