  1. Thanks – have had this 5 times now – no thanks at all to Microsoft as a Service.
    It may be free – but how do we get our valuable time back from Microsoft?
    Will start by uninstalling MalwareBytes

  2. Modern Setup Host Has Stopped Working windows 10

    I solved this problem by finding an obscure post by some
    guy probably scratching himself strategically while collecting food stamps rather than relying on the zillion dollar Microsoft company and their team of Tech Monkeys! This should work but please follow carefully!
    1. Click the update to Windows 10 button.
    2. Choose to copy to USB (3GB min) or DVD.
    3. open the usb or dvd you just made and click setup
    4. When it loads save time and choose not to update at this
    time.
    5. It will go through the entire process of installation, BUT,
    6. Follow this carefully, you will get a pop up error message “Modern setup host not working- close program” DO NOT HIT CLOSE PROGRAM!!!! HIT CONTROL, ALT, DELETE/ TASK MANAGER AND RESTART WINDOWS. THERE SHOULD BE A RESTART BUTTON ON THE LOWER RIGHT AFTER YOU HIT C/A/D. CHOOSE RESTART AND YOUR UPDATE WILL FINISH WHEN IT REBOOTS.
    7.Just another reason why Microsoft sucks!!!
