Another reason I hate Microsoft !
Company computer has Windows 8 ... MS Office 2013.
It has all the transit records of the work ... we have ships and barges all working and I need to have this running all time to keep all inventoried.
Win 8 updates .. all seems fine. Yesterday I shut if off - I do that every few days to just give it a rest and also clear the crap that PC's tend to accumulate when left on.
Started it up few hours later ........ NO YOU HAVE TO BE ******* KIDDING !!
Bloody update destroyed all links to start Office Excel / Word etc. It also corrupted the exe Office files.
So for last 12hrs - it's been chuntering away on mobile broadband trying to do online repair ... with no end in sight.
Luckily I tend to keep back-ups .. I also can actually access the files .. just cannot start the spreadsheets .. so copied all across to my little Acer 0ne ... working fine there ... but the PoS Win 8 machine ?
Having been with Computers since the old days of Commodore's and BBC's etc. - I can honestly say that each version of Windows that comes out is crappier than version it's replacing ... what other software has so many updates and criticals ?
