  5. Hi again, I got an email circular yesterday containing this link: I'm tempted to try it but note: "Enter any Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 key that hasn’t previously been used to upgrade to 10 ..." I'm wondering if this would be a problem because I did install W10 in the very early days and had so much trouble with it that I reverted to W7. Would this key therefore already be "on file"? Thanks, Ian
  6. There is an icon on the upper left corner to do it.
  7. We're unable to run a 16bit program that was running prior to the Windows-10 1903 update this morning. The message being displayed is: ("config.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose "close" to terminate the application. ) We're running a 32bit version of Windows 10 Home, after the update it's Version 1903, build 18362.476. Once again, it was running prior to the update. NTVDM is enabled and the compatibility troubleshooter is of no help. Thanks for any help.

  9. Hello, I would really appreciate help in solving this issue. I wanted to get rid of Sandboxie because the latest Win10 update requested it. So, after failing to do so via regular uninstall route, I tried to boot in safe mode via Troubleshoot and restart. It produced lingering black screen, but on restart would boot into normal mode. Then, I, foolishly so it seems went In the System Configuration window, click or tap the Boot tab. In the Boot options section, selected the "Safe boot" option and after the final restart NOW all I get is black screen, no booting circle, no logo, just led power on and the other blinking normally on the PC case. Also keyboard function is there, I can turn on and off caps and num lock lights. Thanks very much in advance
  10. How come after the Update my task bar and Win dows menu are gray? Everywere I read I'm told to go to colors and hit dark. I want the taskbar the color i choose.

  14. Hi everyone I am facing this very strange issue from a few days. I am using my laptop with windows 10 1909 installed as clean format (not upgrade from previous version). When i have to leave my desk, i close the lid and the system goes to sleep mode. The power light remains on as the laptop is connected to charger and the HDD/SSD light starts blinking and that's when i know that system is now on sleep mode. But from few days, Randomly it would turn back on (even though the lid is closed) and i hear fans turning on, display still off and i then open the lid to see that it is on welcome screen. At first i thought, it is battery issue as my battery was quite old one and i went and bought a new battery but now it seems that it is not the battery issue, otherwise why would the system be turning on itself randomly when there has been no tinkering with power settings. Can anyone please suggest what is going on? Additional info: I checked BIOS to see the wake on LAN or USB or something like that, but no, there is no change in that and those options are closed. I checked the power options but apparently i couldn't find any option that would turn the system back on while being on sleep mode.
  15. Computer boots up, but no hard drive activity after a windows and video card update. Have nothing but a black screen, cant not boot to safe mode, or ctr+alt+det.
  16. What a load of crap this site really is. You leave only pictures of links and tons of adverts. AVOID this Dumping ground at all cost. Totally useless.
  17. Hmm. Very odd. You can go into a command prompt and type: net user It will give you a list of accounts on the box. Another option on Windows 10, open Settings > Accounts (see below). It will give you all the details on your logged in account. Windows 10 1903 Shown Above
  18. Yeah - sorry for the bad news... Now, each system must activate with Microsoft (piracy issues). So, there ya go.
  19. Dear Experts I have got a work laptop that was connected to my work domain because I need to use the laptop at field I got a permission for that laptop to be disconnected from the work domain and it was assigned to the default windows 10 Pro workgroup. When I logged to the laptop I can see my name in the logon screen. I tried to check the new username after the laptop got disconnected but I couldn't find it in the computer management applet as in the snapshot below : Any alternative way to figure out what is the username ? Thx
  20. Hi Steve, I'd almost given up hope of getting an answer. Now for the research into the easiest way to do it. Many thanks, Ian
  21. Awesome! Thank you for the feedback @Mike_Scallan!
  22. So.... I would not advice blocking windows updates and security updates. Perhaps that is your issue here... It could be the way you have been blocking them is now causing you issues. Hard to say. Best idea at this point would be to backup your docs and do a clean Windows 10 install.
  23. Hi @buffy2011 - Have you done anything to customize your DNS settings? You should be picking up your DNS settings from DHCP each time you connect to your WIFI network. To check your network card to confirm you've not made any changes 1 - Click Windows Key and Type Network Connections 2 - Right Click your Network Interface and click Properties 3 - Click Internet Protocol Version 4 and click Properties 4 - Ensure all IP address and DNS settings are set to "Automatic".
  24. Hi Ian, Each Windows 10 upgrade is good for only 1 machine. So.... you will need to buy two licenses.
  25. Hi Plcorir, At this point, the free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 has ended. My advice would be to call Microsoft License activation and review the story with them. You might be able to upgrade the device you originally upgraded. Keep us updated on your progress.
  26. Hi Robby, please take a look at this thread here: Thanks -S
