Windows 10 update left labels not able to be edited

Recommended Posts

Heads up.  The new update from windows took hours to install.   I saw online that some folks were having problems rebooting their computers after the install.  Thank goodness that wasn't me as it requires you to take your computer in to be repaired and Geek Squad first appointment to just bring in the computer wasn't until Monday at 11:00.  Then you have to wait to have someone actually get around to working on it.  I was able to reboot, thank goodness.

 

Anyways, after the install, I have noticed that the labels on doors and windows are not able to be edited.  Link turns a blue color but doesn't open. One time the library froze up when I did a search.  Any ideas?  Could it be the graphics driver got updated again?  This caused me the library issue before on a different update.  Thanks!!!

I've just updated to the latest Nvidia driver and everything is working as it should.

Thanks for the heads up Diane, 

 

Could you possibly let us know which windows 10 update you got and which version of Chief it is affecting.  Also could be your video drive as microsoft seems to think they are in charge of that also.

Probably the Driver has been Updated again by M$ if you didn't apply the fix I posted in Eric's Link (Post#3) to stop Driver Updates from MicroSoft.

 Window 10 version 1709  took 2 1/2 hours at least maybe 3.   I am on WiFi.  It did say that they removed 3d drive guard was removed from my computer once it rebooted.

Sorry this was in the quote section.  Didn't know how to remove it when I accidentally hit the quotes in the toolbar.

3D Drive Guard has issues in Win10 1703 and above and may need a patch in Win10. If 1709 is the update you got I am not surprised it took so long on a laptop , it took along time on mine as well as it is under powered. This is not the update causing reboot errors, that is update Cumulative Update KB4056892 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.192  which is for the Meltdown and Spectre Issues.

 

You may get it next if not already installed....

KBIRD I tried to install the May version but got the message that it isn't compatible with Windows 10 version I am using  and couldn't find compatible hardware. ;(

 

edited:  Nevermind, the driver link I clicked on was for windows 8 64 bit and I needed windows 10 64 bit.

Are you guys disabling the windows automatic updates to avoid getting the  update causing reboot errors, that is update Cumulative Update KB4056892 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.192  which is for the Meltdown and Spectre Issues.

I always leave MS updates on, and have the latest from NVidia also, without any problems like that with window labels which I have macro's for..

No ,  I am only stopping MicroSoft from automatically Updating Hardware Drivers eg for the Nvidia VideoCard etc

You can disable Cumulative Updates ( also known as Feature Updates) if desired , though I am unsure of the Status of  KB4056892 , since it is a Security update , and those can not be deferred if M$ so deems it "in the public  interest"  . Did you check to see if it is installed already ?  see your installed history under Updates in the Settings App.

Based on my understanding of the potential threat, I would recommend getting the updates on your systems for the Meltdown and Spectre issues.

 

For information on the above patch as well as a list of the possible problems on windows see this article:
