Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is slowly rolling out to users with compatible systems, but don’t expect to be offered it any time soon. A quarter of users are still waiting to get the Creators Update.

How to delay the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

The latest feature update for Windows 10 is about to start rolling out, although it may be months before it comes to your device (a quarter of users are still waiting for the Creators Update).

While you might be keen to update your installation, the truth is it’s often best to wait. Big updates like this usually introduce bugs and problems alongside new features, and unless you’re desperate to screw up your copy of Windows 10, I’d recommend holding off for a while. Even Microsoft warned users not to install the Creators Update when that first came out.

The Pirate Bay is back running a cryptocurrency miner, with no way of opting out

Last month, we revealed how popular torrent site The Pirate Bay was secretly running a Javascript cryptocurrency miner from Coinhive in the background, increasing the CPU usage of visitors.

The miner uses processing power from users’ systems to generate Monero coins for the site it’s on, and The Pirate Bay said it was testing it as a way of generating alterative revenue. Despite the inevitable outcry the initial test produced, The Pirate Bay has once again begun using cryptocurrency miners, although this time around it has throttled the mining slightly, presumably to make it less obvious to users.

A week ago, Kodi took to Twitter to express its hatred for popular third-party add-ons site TVAddons, claiming that it should be shut down as it brought "nothing but misery to everyone."

The media software developer has continued its war of words since, attacking not only TVAddons again, but also end users, stating that anyone who uses Kodi to stream content illegally "can just bugger off and never come back." And that’s not all.
