[Michlib-l] Windows 10...and Deep Freeze

Saranac Public Library upgraded all 8 of our patron computers to Windows 10 back the first of December (I think that was when it was- or the end of November) and we have deep freeze installed as well.  Our tech guy really didn't want to upgrade us but we were having problems with our weekly updates- some weren't able to complete which then caused the computer to into a cycle of constantly trying to update and this made the computer unusable.  After we had problems several times (the last time we only had 2 computers available for patron use), I knew something had to be done.

We have not had any issues at all with Windows 10, Deep Freeze OR with the computers updating.  For us, it has been a great move.
