    @Phaedra Thanks for the C-Cleaner tip. I downloaded and installed it. It said “free” all the time until I tried to run it. Then asked for dosh. Don’t mind paying if it is going to work. Just a bit worried that I might be giving payment details to some conmen. Has it changed from free software, d’you think?

    No, there’s def a free version,

    https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download

    Far left option,

    When it comes time to update you may be asked if you want to upgrade, just say no thanks, next screen gives the option to download the free version.

    If you go into the Options menu (cog icon on the left side) you should see 2 options, Upgrade to Pro or Start Free Trial, use the Free trial.

    There's room for all God's creatures, right next to the mash and gravy πŸ™‚

    Ccleaner used to be good. Not so much now as you can do what cc does on your pc if you have win 10 Pro.

    Just be careful when setting up to do a clean up.

    Oh buggrit! Just yesterday went in and reverted my mek to before that update because it slowed everything down again – terribly. Guess I’d better go and pick it up again and put up with Commodore Pet processing periods!

    Tharg You should not have to keep doing that. Going back to last restore point, because it’s running slow.. Something is amiss. Do the updates and it may well just fix that issue!

    Sorry, Joss. It’s beaten me again. I go to “How to reinstall an update on Windows 10”. It says:
    Open Settings. no probs
    Click Update & security. fine
    Click on Windows Update. as above
    Click the Check of updates button to trigger an update check, which will redownload and install the update automatically again. Not there; closest I get is “View update history” giving data re updates but not doing the reinstall bit
    Click the Restart Now button to complete the task. don’t get this far!

    What can I try next? It really is going very slowly. Some googled stuff says I should reinstall Windows. Worth a try? Or will it totally booger the whole lot?

    Ok there is a possibility that it has already done the update and that’s why your not seeing it.

    If that was the case you would see ” your up to date” in windows update. Here is a pic of mine. Look at the picture. Do you see where it says “View update history ” if so click on it and you should then see what I have in the second picture. If you see update history use the snip tool and take a snap shot and post it here.

    @joss Sorry for the rude lack of reply. I did actually write one but I guess I’d been signed out because of the update and it did not get here! So, thanks for that. Things are going a bit quicker now so I assume the updates have gone in. Moreover, it tell me that a new Win 10 can be had – ver 20H2 – is it safe and/or desirable to load this?

    @Tharg No worries. I have done the post thing myself when I thought I was logged in and was not.

    Glad speed has picked up. with the updates. I have been using the V.20H2 for some time Tharg. There have been a few patches which is normal. So yes. Update to that version if you like. I recommend it.

    Well, it has finally finished Win Upgrade – only took four hours. Kept stopping, starting, restarting and freezing. Left it alone to sort itself out. Seems to work even though I’m getting odd messages like saying I’ve to reset password because “it has been changed”. Don’t trust this. Will wait and see what happens.

    Don’t know, Joss. It all sounded so dodgy, I kicked the msg/page off screen and restarted. Hasn’t come up again. Will let you know of it does.
