    Windows 10 Nov update

    Successfully upgraded to Win 10 but the Nov 2015 update caused my system to crash. Had to reinstall the OS and now it works haphazardly (read slowly). Is there a fix for this? Now I can't get Office 2007 updates.

    Have you installed all the subsequent fixes?

    Was your reinstall a clean install using a USB device? Did you use the built-in Windows reset?

    I have been unable to connect to windows update. The recover was through the win 10 recovery option. Of course I had to reinstall all my apps then. I suspect there is some kind of conflict with Office 2007.

    Hi This suggestion is a little late, but I would recommend a repair install. You will need to be able to boot into windows, but you shouldn't lose all your apps according to Brink! I haven't tried this!
    The Refresh/Reset are great but IMHO this is better!
    The options above are great for what they are intended for, but you could also do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything other than all installed Windows Updates.

    A number of users in the Lounge run Office 2007 on Win10 without issues.

    Do you get an error message when you run WU?
    Have you used Task Manager to see what may be using system resources?
    Have you checked the event viewer for errors?
    Have you checked the reliability history?

    Don't want to get in the way, but I like Joe's suggestion about reliability history. Just type that in search and it will take you to the Reliability Monitor. A excellent tool that no one uses, and I don't know why!
