    I am starting to hear reports from people that have updated to Win 10 and are having a problem with proprietary drivers for some hardware.

    The situation is that hardware comes with a driver that works with Win 10 — but for various reasons Microsoft decides it has a better driver — that may not work. In previous editions of Windows, the user could chose not to update the driver. But, in Win 10, since Microsoft knows better, they will replace the working driver with a non-functional one.

    The suggested work-around is rather painful. Disconnect from the internet — delete the non-functional driver and replace it with the manufacturer’s version — reboot (and keep the internet connection off) — and after done then you can go back on the internet and let Microsoft destroy what you just fixed.

    Any particular thoughts on how else to keep a computer doing it’s job?
