Clean Install and still running into problems.
When ever Windows came out I run into problems on the regular. Every Clean install is from a CD or USB and I downloaded it that day. I just downloaded on 4/2/21. After 2 days of running it becomes unstable. How? 1. I run a program called BOINC "the reason I run it 24/7". And the Project it's running is Asteroids@home for GPU work. Windows runs fine for nearly 2 days and then my computer is laggy. After I suspend all GPU work... It's fine. After restarting my computer and start running the SAME GPU work. It's fine now. That's not all... 2. Taskbar crashes, well... disappears and reappears and some programs that run in the background that put icons on the bottom right are not running "meaning not there anymore. It loves taking out EVGA Precision X, X OC, X 16 of any version. 3. Can't lower resolution lower then 4K. When lowing it from Windows settings is says it's at 1080 but my TV still says 4K. Games can't lower it either. Gams that don't support it I can't play "exp: Bejeweled 3". It did for a while on older versions of Win 10. 4. HDR does or doesn't work. I have an HDR TV. Certain games will enable HDR? Even though the game doesn't support HDR. 5. Devices randomly disconnect and reconnect because I hear the audio prompt and/or popup notice. 6. Keyboard stop working in Feedback Hub but backspace works just fine. After switching from Sticky Notes to Feedback Hub it started working again and it did it again. It's been 4 days now. The only thing I didn't do is install a Windows 10 DVD drivers that came with the MoBo. To see if that was the issue. No. X99 MoBo P.S. On another computer on an HP all in one here APU video drivers stopped running and had to reinstall it to get it back up and running. I wondered why the back light would not go out.

Is there a way to wait to install an update
I have tried to turn off windows updates but even when I go in and disable them, they still manage to turn themselves off. I only find out when I got to turn off my laptop and my options are update and restart or update and shut down. I like to be there when it's updating and sometimes I want to go to bed. So what are my options ....I have to sit there and wait for it to update. Why can't they give me an option to ignore update for now and shut down normally. I feel like I have no control over my computer updating. On my apple devices it tells me when there is an update available and I can decide when it's a good time for me to update. Is there some way around this? I'm in the market for a new laptop and I am seriously wondering if I really want to get another windows laptop because of the lack of control over the updates.
Wireless Network Recognition Issue
I have a four year old Dell laptop. When trying to connect to the church wifi, it doesn't recognize the network, though my two Apple devices will (and they connect with no problem). Are there any known Windows 10 issues with wifi (thinking of the constant update problems), or a setting that I should be checking? It sees other networks in the area, but not the one I want.
Issues with update KB4556799 (I think...)
Hello, I installed KB4556799 and had issues since, I suspect this update as others have reported similar issues to mine and attributed it to that update. my pc currently often crashes to desktop when trying to play games, (has gotten worse last few days) and has had connectivity issues and realtek has stopped detecting devices aswell as a couple blue stop screens and crashes that required a restart. I don't know if it's the update for sure, but wanted to remove it so I could see if the problem persisted, but I can't uninstall it through the usual update uninstaller (can do with other updates) and cannot through cmd (update required), I've checked my drivers and all seem up to date apart from Radeon which when I tried to update gave me error code 207 'device manager found a problem with display adapter' but i can't find any issues in device manager. I also cannot download the latest windows 10 update as my device isn't ready for it, but doesn't give any indication of what I can do to make it ready. Thanks.
A new Windows experience is coming! Many of these devices will be able to upgrade to Windows 11.
