Hi Thanks Gary.

The only change that hasn't been resolved now is the reading of my pictures from the card. But now I'm used to it, it's not too bad.

It's so frustrating though when the update changed so many of my settings and I've had to try and remember how I did them originally.

Dave's pointer to deactivate the touch pad seems to be working today, so that's great. I've not tried taking the mouse out yet though, but at least the constant irritating pop-ups have stopped.

What is "a support ticket with Microsoft"?

I trust these updates so little that I never install them, had so much trouble with Win10 that I uninstalled it.

For what I do on my pc, it's not worth the hassle for upgrades or functions that I'll probably never use, still tootling along with Win7.

I called Microsoft tech support (1800-642-7676 for customers in the USA), described my problem and a ticket was opened.

I have Classic Shell installed on my W10 laptop, so it works like a Win7 system.

Had an awful time on Saturday, when it somehow got switched off and I was faced with the ghastly w10 screens. Completely lost.

No shortcut desktop icons etc... everything had to be found in the hard drive. You can't re-size screens and have two or three going. Nothing in the Task Bar.

Backwards and forwards I had to go from one screen to find another. I was tearing my hair out until Jape told me how to switch Classic Shell on again.

Trouble is, I understand that CS is no longer being supported and updated. Don't know what I'll do if it collapses.

Whoever dreamed up W10 and that horrid system needs shooting (well that's a polite term for what I want to do with them).
