    Yes, you need to uninstall that update that COPO mentions. It is broken and Microsoft doesn't know how to fix it.

    Have you followed COPO's recommendation?

    There should be a way to turn off automatic updates and override Microsoft's stupidity. Look into that.

    Funny you should mention this... I have an old Win7 laptop where I recently installed some Windows updates and whenever I put the laptop to sleep and open it up again, the Wifi doesn't automatically connect like it used to.

    I've been all over the control panel and the drivers trying to make sure no inadvertent settings got flipped, but to no avail...

    Uh oh. I just did a 2 hour update on the wife's desktop on win 10. I'm probably going to catch hell pretty quick. Thanks for the advance warning.
