    Schannel Errors

    Something else I just thought of. 2 days before I updated Windows I switched internet provider from Roadrunner to Spectrum. I don't know if that plays a part or not. I didn't check the error log until after the Windows updates. Joe

    Why does windows 7 take forever to shut down

    Do you have any automatic backup software running? I ran into this with a WD external drive and their Smartware program. It runs silently in the background and slows shutdown until it finishes the file it's coping. joe

    install older application

    Software compatibility is one reason business is so slow to move to a new OS. Many have exotic software that doesn't get updated to new a OS. That was also a factor in business hanging on to XP for so long. Joe

    How would you rate Windows 7

    I think Windows 7 was the best also. They need to quit trying to turn a desktop into a phone interface. They also have to realize that there is no need to replace a computer every 3 years like you did 15 -20 years ago. The hardware improvements today are much smaller than in the past. Joe
