Windows 10 Anniversary Update Freezing and Stop Errors

Microsoft has recently released the next version of Windows 10, dubbed as Anniversary Update it has a slew of features that make it more efficient and appealing to Users with its new features. I will not be enumerating any of the new features since this is not a review of Windows 10’s Anniversary Update, instead this is more of how to resolve errors that is plaguing users that updated. If you want to see the new features of version 1607 or the Anniversary Update here’s a site that you may want to go to: How-To-Geek: Windows 10 Anniversary Update

I was compelled to write this post due to the fact that I had a first hand experience on my system that went through the update. Soon after and for the next four days of that , I had to resolve the issue one by one with little to none of any online resource that can figure out what was going on. Going through Safemode was the only thing that can save you from the freezing and BSODs. So was it a driver? Is it a Windows Component? Or was it something else? Honestly, it was a combination of sorts.



Windows XP: End of Days

If you still don’t know, Microsoft has announced the end of the Life Cycle support for Windows XP since 2010. Some may not like it and still hold on to an obsolete Operating System that will never again get patched after April 14, 2014. I wouldn’t want to get into the nitty-gritty  side of updating to the newer Operating System and still I wonder why there’s so much hate about 8.1. Personally, it’s an absolutely great Operating System and like anything new it takes a lot of getting used to. But once you get to use it more, the experience wouldn’t be like any previous versions of Windows.

One notable thing I could say about 8.1 is the Bluetooth support which was seamless on any devices I had, contrary to being horrible since XP to 8. 

I grew up with XP and I had some doubts to letting it go but since Microsoft ushered 7, my fancy got stuck with it. It’s hard to really see it go, but as all things become old so do we move on to something newer which has the better features from Security to UI Experience.
