Windows 10 problems

Woke up this morning to learn that my computer had "updated" to W10. So I went through the full uninstall procedure of all things Flex, then did a fresh re-install. Upon trying to start up the rig I get a yellow button and an "Update is required" message. About 20 seconds after clicking on the yellow button to begin the update a "Not responding" message followed by a pop-up window saying: Unable to connect to the radio. Please power cycle the radio and try again.

I've tried several times as well as rebooting computer. No joy.

    Did you do the  "Tim" uninstall or the Windows uninstall?

    Problem resolved thanks to Dudley at Flex. Turns out that the W10 update didn't correctly load the drivers for the ethernet adapter yet Windows gave no indication of this. A re-install of the driver fixed the problem. Thanks Dudley - you saved my day!
