Are you using Windows 10? Has your Windows 10 computer refused to start after an update? This is a common occurrence for Windows 10 computers. Windows 10 will usually force you to do updates when are least able to spend time troubleshooting a computer problem. If you are prepared, this won’t be a show stopper for you.
If your computer fails to start, you won’t be able to gain access to your documents and files that are stored on your computer. If you have backup up your files, you should be able to access your files to continue business with minimal interruption.
Backing up files doesn’t have to be a complicated process. A backup is a copy of your original files. How you do it is up to you. You can use Windows backup or one of the other 3rd party backup applications to back up important files. Any computer failure is not a catastrophic event if your backup of your important files is available. Most homes and businesses usually have more than one computer. It should be pretty easy to find another computer to view your backed up files.
If your computer appears to hang during an update, don’t stop the process unless you are sure that the update process has failed. An update status that doesn’t change for hours is a good indication that the update is stuck or frozen. If you are sure that the update has frozen, reboot the computer. Many times the computer will continue and complete the update process successfully. Don’t jump the gun, be patient. Interrupting the update process prematurely will foul up the operating system.
Don’t make any assumptions when you attempt to repair your computer. It is best to ask someone about the significance of a computer message on your screen before you click to execute any buttons. It is too late after damage has been done to the file system.
