EVERY update screws my rift over!

honestly im beyond sick of this. Its every update WITHOUT fail. I run the setup and everything is fine. Before the update my headset worked flawlessly. Now just after guardian the setup quits and i get a hmd error. WHY cant oculus just give cv1 users a final stable release instead of constantly updating their spyware just to annoy people. 3 times now. every time i have had to spend days messing with software to get it to work. and every update screws it up. safe to say im staying WELL away from anything oculus. their software is abysmal. I have attached a log in case it helps but im starting to think its not worth anyone's time. There was NO need to update my software. I restart my pc, I update mobo drivers and i DDU and re install nvidia drivers but nothing works. Thanks oculus!

Edit your hosts file so it can't ever talk to oculus again.   Download all your Home games so you can play them and then cut off all communications with oculus and switch to SteamVR for games and mulitplayer stuff.

Try adding the following to the end of the hosts file (located in C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\etc) 31.13.95.61 graph.oculus.com


Or use the other one = 127.0.0.1

Keep going into the folder labeled, "etc."  Inside that folder is a file called "hosts."

I can confirm that this works. Its really a shame when we have to block updates just to keep our headsets on. The only permanent solution is to buy anything but Oculus for your next headset.

Valve also constantly forces SteamVR updates, not sure that's much different.
