Re: Windows 10 21H1 May 2021 Update

CRASHED

Both of my laptops stopped working this morning, windows unresponsive and nothing was working, frozen. I was getting microsoft warnings coming up -errors which seemed to be linked to cortana but could not get into apps to reset this.

Managed to get into settings and recovery and restore back to 25/7/2021.

Not sure if it was the recent windows updates, but also had issues with zone alarm firewall which stopped working so removed this and using defender now.

Virus checks were clean so must have been a software issue. Both laptops are now working, but still not knowing what happened or caused this crash?

I do have some 2019 windows backup disks and usb sticks, but not sure how to boot them, I will have to check that out, I did try them at first but do not know the F keys to change boot order, will check that out. One laptop was bringing up the bios commands during startup, so  something odd happened.

Have a look in Event Viewer to see what happened.

Got this one earlier this morning, took longer to download and restart rather than the install.  Whole thing took about 15 minutes.  Blank screen if you update and shut down.
