… NOT NOT !
Windows 7 is getting too big for it’s (re)Boots!!!
Easter eggxample number 3 (for eg’s 1 and 2 see I Love Microsoft )
Now while some of you may not see that much of a problem here, after all it is only 4 updates right. None of the updates were over 100 mb in size (this time!!). I was up to date with updates 2 days ago. No Biggy right?
This pic of my laptop was taken 6 hours ago (still no change) which was 11 hours after trying to shut down the laptop. I had, immediately prior to clicking on ‘Shut Down’, checked my computer for updates and unclicked the four it had cued while being used. It decided it wanted to install them anyway and to punish me for daring to challenge it’s authority in the first place. ( I also had, on previous usage, chosen on my computer to only notify me of updates so that i could have final say on exactly when they were installed and not just when i had to shut my computer down, but owing to several automatic restores to previously safe boots when the laptop crashed (largely from problematic updates!!!) this particular option had been reset to Microsoft’s ‘preferred’ choice of just updating autonomously.
That is 17 hours and counting of continuous denied access to my laptop because of updates to what is obviously a very outdated (but which still does what i want it too quite well under normal circumstances – ie. when i do not update it) Operating System.
In case any were wondering the screen, processor and hard drive are all active and nothing has ‘frozen’. The rotating icon is rotating, the hard drive light briefly flashes every second and regular noises can be heard coming from the hard drive as one more line of programming is read/written on the HD, which is around 25% full.
