Anniversary Update Taking Long Time / What To Do?
« Last post by William on December 20, 2016, 12:54:16 AM »
The cause of the circle of death after installing the Anniversary Update can be numerous but is most likely a driver issue.  The trouble is there is no indication what driver or if that is the cause.  It's been reported that the Anniversary Update has been taking anywhere from 2-24 hours, sometimes longer, to apply and get back up and running.  Do we think that's ridiculous? Sure.  What can be done?  Honestly, short of pulling the plug and doing a wipe and re-install (with the Anniversary Update already applied), nothing.  Turning off the device does not help and only lengthens the time for Windows to do its job.  We know it's causing a huge headache but the best course of action is just walk away.  We encourage folks to apply this update over a long weekend but Windows now won't let you delay updates.  They are pushed out at almost an incessant rate leaving people with down machines and very little productivity. 
Windows Spotlight Image Not Working / How to Fix

In Settings / Personalization and choose Lock Screen and choose a static picture or slideshow.  Update your video card drivers and reboot.  Then go back into Settings / Personalization and select Lock Screen.  Choose Windows Spotlight and close.  Then test the lock screen by pressing CTRL-L.  The lock screen should have an image with the time and, if selected, apps displaying info such as weather.  Then when you click the mouse to enter password, that image should reflect the lock screen image as well.
