What would have been the milestone 50th edition of Shelf Critter Theatre must unfortunately be canceled on account of corporate incompetence. I took the photos for it this morning, then tried to upload them to Photoshop for resizing and the other magics I do to them, and PS didn’t want to work right at all. Along with my games I play running very slowly the past 48 hours, I did a little digging and as I expected, the problems relate to the most recent update of Windows 10 that got rammed onto both my laptop and desktop Wednesday. I found a thread on the Microsoft problem board from last month (this was the April 2018 update) of two users complaining about the exact issue I had while apparently everyone at Gates, Inc. sat on their hands and offered zero help to its frustrated customers…
It appeared there was a lot of advice for people having issues with the new updates to do a system restore. In a decade and a half of using a computer, I have never ever did a system restore before… so I was very nervous and confused about this. But Photoshop not working (And my computer itself running like sludge) is not acceptable… so I gave it a shot this afternoon. And after nearly an hour of initialization and restoring the registry and then the longest restart in the history of home computing………. I got this.
I guess I’ll try again when I have the time to lock my computer down for an hour. Oh, how I loved my old Windows Vista….
