Windows 10 strikes again – pro gamer’s live stream shutdown by update

Windows 10 may be Microsoft’s best update since Windows 7, but its penchant f0r trolling unsuspecting PC users has not gone unnoticed. Its latest stunt shutdown a pro gamer in the middle of a live stream with thousands viewers.

Windows 10 normally trolls those running older versions of Windows by frequently feeding them popups that remind them to update — even if they don’t want to. One recently appeared during a live weather forecast on KCCI.

But even after you upgrade, Windows 10 still finds ways to get you. Erik Flom, who makes a living playing games on Twitch, found this out the hard way when a Windows 10 update shutdown his live stream without warning.


Flom has more than 130,000 followers on Twitch, and this particular stream has been viewed over 120,000 times. While it was live, thousands of viewers had to sit through double Windows 10 updates while Flom had nothing else to do.

If you’re a Flom fan, or you just like watching people get trolled by Windows 10, you can watch the full nine-hour live stream (yes, nine hours!) on Twitch by following the source link below.
