A week later, to the hour, and the very next Windows Update has also completely borked my observatory laptop--it can't be reached via RAdmin or TeamViewer. Now I'm faced with another lost day and trekking through snow, or with just giving up.

I think I'm giving up. Bob, it's was fun once, and I wish you well, but unless something changes I don't think I'm going to do this any more.

Microsoft has decided to end my 10 years of photometry. It's just not productive any more, and it's sure not fun. At all.
