Windows 10 has struck again! Users beware, it seems there is no escaping the Windows 10 update, and it is even dropping at the worst possible moment.
Just a week after screwing up a live weather report, a Windows 10 update has burned a marathon gaming session being held by pro-gamer Erik Flom.
In the hilarious clip, Flom is in the process of completing a nine hour gaming session with Counterstrike, when his computer unexpectedly starts updating to a new Windows 10 build. Anyone who has been awaiting a Windows 10 update will know that the scheduling window has a habit.
Anyone who has been awaiting a Windows 10 update will know that the scheduling window has a habit at popping up randomly, but for a machine to shut down completely is rare.
With 130,000 people watching the livestream, it was hardly a convenient moment for the update and Flom’s reaction was suitably hilarious, with more than a hint of shock.
“How did this happen! Fuck you Windows 10 … Oh my god, you have one job PC! Update faster you fuck!”
Naturally, it was not that Flom did not want to update Windows 10, the problem is that the gamer had clearly not scheduled this update to happen, stating in the video that he had “turned everything off”.
