Windows update...

Recommended Posts

Can we make a list with windows updates that affects FSX performance (stutters and low FPS), or updates that we don't need in our PC's. It will be very useful for all of us!

Thank you very much!

Albert, why don't you want them?

 

There's only 1 update which installs the utility required for the free upgrade.

I don't want the update for win 10 because I don't need them right now, I will upgrade to win10, but only after SP1 is out, this is also how I did for win 7.

This thread is for updates that are known to affect FSX-MS or FSX-SE by stutter or FPS hit!

 but only after SP1 is out,

Then you will forever wait. They aren't doing "Service Packs" anymore.

Didn't know that..

Well ok, I will update after I see some positive reports, not from the beginning!

I found the 2 updates, there are actually listed in the upper ones: KB 2952664 KB 2976978

To be honest, I have W7 right now and I have all the updates installed. I do have the little "Get Windows 10" icon in my taskbar. Right now, I'm looking at the task manager and GWX.exe, the process for the little icon, is using LESS than ONE megabyte of RAM, and nothing of my processor. I don't really see how this tiny little program is "heavily impacting" Nick N's work. For me, it has no effect on my business.

If you have windows 7 Professional you will not get the little icon with win 10, only home edition get's it.

NickN is not talking only about that update it has listed more updates as you can see!

I will try to uninstall those updates and see the difference!

That's not true. 7 Home Premium, 7 Professional, and 7 Ultimate all have the icon if the computer is fully updated.

Again, I have every single update possible downloaded and installed. Like I said, I have had no impact whatsoever on my performance.

 

Here's the "malware" that everyone is complaining about:

A whopping 404K of my 16GB of RAM being used by this application. Oh the horror.

It might be 1 MB when you looked, but it randomly scans your computer at regular intervals to detect changes and new software you might install, to get the chance to send you the warm fuzzies, as it will tell you what your computer needs for W10, in due course. Trust me, it will use 26% CPU when it needs too, probably mid flight. http://forum.avsim.net/topic/468933-found-this-after-windows-update/

MS is very clear that the "compatability checker" only runs once a month:

 

 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-compatiblity-report-means?ocid=win10_auxapp_ReportCovers_%20compatibility

 

How often does the report run?

The report runs automatically about once a month. If you installed apps or devices recently, or made changes to your PC, the report might not reflect these changes.

 

 

 

That's not too bad.

Yup... No SP1, 2 or 3.

Windows 10 will be updated by the usual weekly updates, so will always be up to date.

If you do have one othe qualifying OS's & do not have the icon & want it,  have a look at:

Look halfway down the page..This section posted by Susan Bradley:

Try the different methods. I have W7 on a laptop & W8.1 on another. Section 3 worked for my W7 & Section 2 for my 8.1. Sounds confusing, but once you read & run the batch file, you will understand.

Well, aren't they daily? I mean, we all know that updates will be forcefully automatic, so I don't know if this means daily or not.

Maybe 'Update Tuesday' will still carry on..

I really do not mind it updates are automatic or not... I prefer my software to be up to date.

That's true, I do not care either, but as long as they're updates for Windows only. Windows 10 will automatically install drivers as well, which I don't like.

The "forced" automatic updates are for Home users only. Professional/Enterprise users can still defer/skip the updates. And I agree, I'll never allow MS to touch my drivers. If I were a Home user that alone would keep me on Windows 7 (or upgrade).

Professional can defer updates for a limited time only. After a while, they will install automatically. Enterprise can choose updates at free will.

 

Yeah. I have the preview on my laptop and the trackpad suddenly stopped working once... I went to Windows Updates and it was installing and update for my trackpad without ever asking me. Imagine what will happen if/when it decides to install a graphics driver while playing a game.

Last month I rearranged a bunch of hardware and decided to do a full reinstall of everything - both FSX and W7 Pro. I reinstalled W7 with SP1 and then reinstalled FSX and a ton of add-ons. Ran my standard "FPS check flight". Result was 58.7 FPS avg. No stutters, no lags.

 

Then I let Windows Update do it's thing with everything except drivers and ran the check flight again. Result was 64.6 FPS. No stutter, no lags.

 

YMMV.
