    OK Mac users you can stop smirking now.

    For a couple of weeks my PC has been freezing, crashing and failing to run some apps. Worst problems with On1 Photo RAW 2018 which just refused to start. Suspected my graphics card so tried a $250 model and a $60 model neither of which solved the problem.
    Tried a fresh install of Win 10 (four times) but still had an unstable machine. On1 were very good requesting log files and offering newest build (pre-release) to test.

    Finally went to Google and found such problems were common after updating Win 10 to v1803.
    Learnt how to to disable Win Update and reinstalled a 5th time and tweaked the settings to disable updates. First app I re-installed was On1 and it worked as it should.

    If you're running Win 10 and experiencing lots of 'Not Responding' messages, slow startup and shutdown, crashing or apps failing to run then v1803 may be the culprit.

    I also originally blamed my software addiction as I run a lot of software and thought I may have conflicts between programs but we will see when I reinstall them. By way of disclaimer I'm not a technician and I can't guarantee it was as I suspected.

    Linux hipster here . . . :D  Although my wife's new-ish laptop runs W10, and I'm even running XP on an old laptop that I keep around for light duty use.

    I've heard lots (even mac users) say that Win 10 is the best of the lot. I havent liked Win at all since 7.

    I haven't really liked Win since NT, but then I'm a closet Luddite.

    No issues, but I also don't run On1.

  8. Me either! I don't PP (other than X-Raw Studio) so I won't get hooked up in those programs.

    I just updated Win 10 to latest and used ON 1 a bit to see if it acted up. No issues so far. Both Win 10 and ON1 installed on a SSD.

    I may well be mistaken and it might be a the particular mix of hardware and software I have. Glad it's working for others but On1 support is aware of others having similar problems to me.
