When I saw a forced Windows update, I assumed it was a minor security update and not the one that it pretty obviously was. My bad, I assumed that Windows update would actually automatically check before it processed with installing anything given the sheer number of issues these updates have had over the years. I'd just wanted to go to sleep and yet I was forced to install this garbage.
I'd been diligently backing up my computer in both an external hard drive and my Google drive so nothing of importance was lost, but that hard drive backup might just be my documents and not a Windows restore partition.
What's the easiest way to restore Windows, if I decide to?
What's keeping this from happening again with a future update? And will M$ FINALLY let me shut down without installing updates?
And the biggest question of all: Should I bother? I've got a live USB of Peppermint Linux ready to go. sudo apt-get install a decent <Removed for TOU/COC violation> operating system.
