Hi Bob,
Glad to hear that you have been as lucky as I had until last Saturday. It looks like keeping up with Win 10 has been like rolling some dice. If you throw the right numbers.If not problems appear out of nowhere.  Yes, this desktop totally dedicated to ham radio has been good, updated religiously (until yesterday MS updates).  I found a way around to make it work for my digimode application.  Still digging up and eventually fixing it.

Gosh!   I have the latest MS update for Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, running on an HP EliteBook 6930P, and have not suffered any of these issues.  Wonder why?

I'd suspect non-MS drivers being used, or those wonderful Driver Update applications which I believe are very poor.   I find the stock drivers from MS do work with all of my applications.  Thus everything seems solid and reliable.  

Question?   Has regular computer maintenance been done with the system?  I use an application {CCleaner which is FREE, although I use the paid version} to get rid of install bits and pieces of code, things leftover from programs being installed and later removed.  {The uninstall process often leaves things behind.}
