As far as 'Equifax' is concerned--I'd think it best to ignore them completely. I think they've pretty much established their reliability. Might as well toss a stone in the air and hope it doesn't land on your head.
'PC Gamer' is also reporting Windows 10 update sends some PCs into a BSOD boot loop-- A troublesome Windows update that was rolled out to PCs running the Windows 10 is causing some systems to spit out a blue screen of death (BSOD) error. Worse yet is that these rigs end up caught in an endless reboot, making them unusable for the time being.
Silly me but I have this belief that some windows updates are more a problem then the malware it's intended to protect against. One of the best pieces of advice I was given was wait a week or two after a new update. Let the rest of the suckers find out what happens first :-)
Then there's my cable modem. It works great for several months. Then from time to time (like it has over the last week) drops my internet 4 or 5 times a day for no reason. All my signals check out 100%. I gone through this several times. Most likely in a week or two (or whenever it feels like it) everything will be fine again for a few months.
My digital TV plays funny tricks too. The 3 HDMI inputs decided to quit for no reason. I reconnected my component cables instead. Other times it thinks certain HD channels don't exist. A few hours later it decides they do.
Ok I think I'm starting to get it..
