    Awesome Brian thank you I used the troubleshoot and worked fine for me I got lucky I guess. Bur guys these steps are easy to do Brian is showing you and at one time or another you or someone you know might need these. Even if your problem is fix i recommend you watch the full video and just take it when there is a problem all is not lost back up and follow Brian's awesome video .

    this is the backup tool i use find it easy and way faster then other backups and i tried it many times works flawless for me

    Hi Brian, do you know if there any problems with connecting USB devices with the latest Windows 10 updates? I recently bought a USB Webcam and a microphone it took ages to set up the Webcam and still have on/off issues, similarly the microphone shows that its connected and working but I can not get it working in OBS it see's it and I can select it but no sound recording – same issue in the control panel yet it works in audacity – any idea's?

  7. Greg M

    Why would you not try the WIndows10 Built in troubleshooter first to see if that fixes the problem followed by the renaming of the software distribution folder etc?

    Start with a black screen. Make sure your computer has so many corrupt files after the"Forced" upgrade 1803, you can't do Anything. Now, you see? MICROSOFT JUST DESTROYED YOUR COMPUTER! Just tell Microfrickinsoft to send me the $2000 I spent on the computer they ruined..

  9. Wally Be

  30. Joel Hill

    Didn't know I had to be a computer programmer to get rid of this corruption that was concocted by windows in the first place!! Piss me off!! Windows sucks! My next computer will be a Mac!!

  31. WinUpdate Restart did it for me. Make sure under privacy that email app is turned on.
