It goes like this... B Updates: They're the Patch Tuesday Updates.  "The big updates most people are familiar with come out on “Patch Tuesday,” the second Tuesday of the month. These are called “B” updates because they’re released in the second week of the month.

I've really been left wondering what's wrong with the W10 devs... Erasing data, inability to choose default app...all is not well, methinks.   Seriously, what kind of company releases crap like this?

I've been reading about this upcoming October update to W10. It won't be especially huge, just the same, 10 or so Gigs might give someone a problem of an incomplete download.

  I was perusing ghacks when I found this article. Since so many of us use the app, I thought you should read Martin Brinkmann's advice.   Source: https://www.ghacks.net/2018/08/01/ccleaner-5-45-dont-install/?_m=3n%2e0038%2e2188%2ehj0ao01hy5%2e2a5x
