    Being talked about on Twitter and YouTube: Twitter: Heads up to anyone updating windows. Apparently, if you have documents saved in your user directory, i.e. users/JohnDoe, and not one drive, the update will delete EVERYTHING in that location. So if your "Documents" or "Pictures" don't have a one drive symbol, MIGRATE IMMEDIATELY!, https://twitter.com/coolKevinator/status/1047714803127476225>

    I have this update waiting to be installed: Microsoft - HIDClass - 10/27/2015 12:00:00 AM - 9.9.108.0. Is that the one I should NOT install?

    I don't have OneDrive installed and I don't want it installed.

    What action do I need to take if any?


    Thanx!

    As you should be doing regularly: backup, backup, backup. The one in question looks like a device driver update (HID stands for Human Interface Device). At this juncture, I would avoid installing any updates, just in case your machine pulls down 1809.

    Right, I do backups!

    I guess I don't know where to go to select a choice to NOT install updates. My update options are all set to "off".

    Thanx!

    I'm glad to see that, Frank. Hopefully, it'll allay the fears of Win 10 users and MS will get their poop together!
