  1. 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
  2. Yeah - sorry for the bad news... Now, each system must activate with Microsoft (piracy issues). So, there ya go.
  3. 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.
  4. 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".
  5. Hi Ian, Each Windows 10 upgrade is good for only 1 machine. So.... you will need to buy two licenses.
  6. 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.
  7. Hi Robby, please take a look at this thread here: Thanks -S
  8. Hi Terry, Are you saying you can't get to any web page? Or just a specific one? Also, have you tried a different web browser? Thnx
  9. Get back into Windows in Safe Mode and see if you can remove it. Something (driver, software, etc...) must be conflicting with the update.
  10. You might try changing your Network Adapters "Speed & Duplex" from Auto Negotiation to 1 Gbps Full Duplex or 100 Mbps if your switch/routers does not support 1G. Post back if this fixes your issue. Thanks!
  11. Doesn't sound like an OS issue.... Sounds like a drive issue. You might try to reinstall Windows and see if you have a drive posting in the system.
  12. Take a look at this article: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/change-default-email-app-windows-10-mailto/ It will explain how to change your default for email links.
