Windows 8 and above known issues:
Windows 10 has no option to delay or disable updates for non-enterprise users. Users running long/overnight experiments will have to disable the service to ensure recordings aren't interrupted. See Tech Note #0964.
The 'Fast Startup' function in Windows 8 and above causes problems with the PCI Interface on bootup. Disabling this setting resolves the bootup issue.
Data Saving and Cache errors can be caused by the Windows 8 and 10 Superfetch/Prefetch (a feature that caches data to improve the performance off some applications) and Indexing (used to speed-up searches) services are turned off.
