    Default Windows 10 updates



    Hi, I use Nebulosity as my capture programme and an Atik camera, when it works it works well. I'm running Windows 10 on my pc but after every time I download the latest update from windows Nebulosity fails to find my camera. The only way I have found to correct the problem is to delete the Atik soft ware then reinstall it, is there an easier way of solving the problem?

    Default Re: Windows 10 updates

    Stopping the Windows update service is a sure way of preventing this from happening when you least expect it. Where as this will stop the updates, it could potentially leave your laptop vulnerable. But, it’s easy to restart the service at a time convenient to you, so if an update has screws your app(s) a pain, but not during valuable imaging time.

    My laptop only run so ap apps, I don’t keep any data on it, so the laptop is kind of sacrificial... if something gets screwed up or it gets infected, I just dump a clone back on it from a previous time and get back and working pretty quickly.

    I know this does not directly answer your question as to why..., God only knows what MS do when they fire out these updates!
