Re: New updates for Windows 10 version 1511.

Why so much?  Do you have multiple computers updating? 

Also, what is that Window from?  I like that.  Is that software connected to your server or something?

Re: New updates for Windows 10 version 1511.

That is WSUS (Windows Server Update Sevices).  I tell it what kind of updates I want, it syncs at 2AM every night, and all my machines are pointed to that instead of official M$ servers.  It's basically a one time download for any and all updates.  I have Win7, Win10 (Non-LTSB), Defender, and Skype updates setup on it... But WSUS supports pretty much EVERY microsoft product that has an update function since the earliest builds of WinXP from what I know.  If you aren't careful and select every product, and classification, it can consume several terabytes of data...  Imagine telling it to download every Microsoft driver for a single operating system alone...

Honestly, it's rather useless for most everyone, but it's beneficial for people that have numerous windows machines on their network(shouldn't be used on networks that have less than 10 machines unless you are frequently playing with VM's that have windows on them), or someone that tends to repair computers frequently.  Never know when you might have to reinstall Win7 and need 2GB worth of updates... That can take awhile to download online, but from WSUS, over a gigabit connection, takes no time at all.

Re: New updates for Windows 10 version 1511.

Eh, I only have the three W10 computers and the biweekly updates for my folks' W8.1 laptop, but I my three at different times.  The only time I ever have more than one on at a time is if I actually need a second on for a specific reason.  I don't even have my router powered up and connected unless I need it, and that's only maybe once a week. 

If I knew when W10 updates were going to be released I would do them on my notebook first in case anything goes goofy with it.  Gotta love free stuff from a class action suit.  I know "class action suit" is an awful term to use on here (J/K), but this CAS was from eMachines and it got me a free computer.  It pays to register your products, and this was a great example as to why.  A bum floppy, which was never a problem for me, got me a computer.

I wonder if this is what broke my NVIDIA GeForce experience beta update yesterday... Had to uninstall, remote registry entries for it and re-install..sigh.

Re: New updates for Windows 10 version 1511.

That's actually one part of the NVidia software I don't install.  I had a somewhat similar problem with it about a year ago, and since I don't really play any games (save two), I just left it off during the reinstallation.

Oh wow.  So you aren't what anyone would call a casual gamer with that kind of equipment!  Do you ever get sick watching something with that thing?  I think I probably would.  LOL.

Re: New updates for Windows 10 version 1511.

Yeah totally. I got the Developer Kit 2 before the full model released and used it to play nothing but horror games (look up Dreadhalls, Amnesia, Affected) but did one time play Minecraft on it and made myself sick..lol

Re: New updates for Windows 10 version 1511.

I haven't played many horror games, nor many games at all, but my favorite PC game is System Shock 2.  Probably not as horror as the horror games are today, but I love it.  The Half-Life series is about the only other one I play.
