Stupid f***in computer

I am taking classes online and went to take my test the other day and half way through it randomly rebooted. Turns out it was a system update. It made my camera not compatible with my computer. I can't test without my camera.

Anyway I talked with an IT guy today. He took control of my computer and fixed the problem. As soon as I scheduled my exam I checked compatibility. It said I was ready for the exam. Two seconds later it rebooted again. Now it's not compatible again. Again I can't take my exam. Stupid fucking computer!

I think you have to turn off automatic updates. 

Computers are assholes...

Yeah you need to have someone set that to not automatically install updates if possible.

That is what I was going to ask.  Every time it updates mine, things go crazy.

I wish it only updated when the computer was off. At least I'd get through my test.
