  1. That's the easy way! Unfortunately I wish it was predictable or even explainable.
  2. Have a read: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/8988575b-32fb-46fb-bd8e-dd9aaafa9903/windows-10-anniversary-update-error-code-0xc1900107?forum=win10itprogeneral
  3. Usually there is a resume or Update icon left on your desktop when you are interrupted but if you start the update again it should pick up what you have already downloaded.
  4. Well of course everything is one word answers, they text everything and anything. No one talks anymore. If there were another way to text all the wireless phone companies would go out of business.
  5. I forgot to mention I normally would take the drive out and copy the files and data before doing this but that was not necessary as the user had two backup hard drives.
  6. Had one of the most badly infected computers I have ever had. Client wasn't sure where this came from but could have been an attachment to an email from someone he knew who he found out later didn't send it. System was Intel 6700K with 500 gb Ssd drive and 16 gb 2133 Ddr3 ram moving like a snail. Most of the desktop items would not open to right or left click. Classic Shell start menu gone and Win 10 start menu would flash quickly then go away if open too long. I tried to run Hitman Pro Kickstart from usb but would not run. I could boot to it but would show up failed with any choice. I fo
  7. Nice reference: http://www.howtogeek.com/163452/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-blue-screen-of-death/
  8. You will be able to as it will remember, install this tool: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10/
  9. OK so it is now up to Windows 10? I am so confused.
  10. Using a Windows dvd cannot give you the updates you were trying to do, it probably just returned you to prior to the updates then.
  11. 2 points for that one Ace!
  12. Somehow we always wind up one up but who knows what the future will bring.
  13. He really does look incredible for his age....
  14. If you add the two together it still does not equal the real price on Sept 2015 in many cases and after all what is the appeal.What was announced was $5000-10000 initial payment and then value of car as of Sept 2015. I have a 2015 and what I show offered is 3475 + 20,000 buy back price. So where is $5000-10,000 initial add both and you get the price Sept 2015. My daughter has a 2012 Diesel Passat and same story....under $4000 cash which can be applied to having the repair done to their hoax software for about that price or $4000 +$12000 and her vehicle was worth $16,000 Sept 2015. Total screw
  15. In addition to that Gary also suggests this that makes sense to me: For a computer running Windows 8 or later, another powerful command line utility users can run is the Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool that is used to service a Windows installation. Similar to the System File Checker utility, you can use DISM to correct corrupted system files and determine the status of the system. Press Windows key + X Click Command Prompt (Admin) Type each command at the prompt then hit enter after each scan is complete) Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealt
  16. Fabiansomware: when hackers lose it In Security Knowledge by Haylee on September 2, 2016 | Русский, Italiano, Français, English, Deutsch Cybercrime has existed for as long as the internet has. However, 2016 has well and truly been the year of ransomware. New ransomware families are popping up weekly and the Emsisoft Malware Lab battles them daily on the frontline. As a result, our lab is often at the receiving end of hate from authors of such ransomware. This was the case a few months ago when we were able to break the amateurish code that makes up a ransomware
  17. Gary suggested I suggest Running sfc /scannow from an elevated cmd prompt. Search for ".cmd" and then right click the answer and choose "run as administrator" and then type in "sfc /scannow" and hit "enter" on keyboard.
  18. Gary sent me this and I haven't had a chance to look at it and of course he cannot post his own thread here: https://www.tekrevue.com/tip/disable-charms-bar-windows-8/ as a way to disable Charms Bar....I am excited to dig into that!
  19. I am not suggesting you do this but in a similar case I just shut down and restarted to discover the update was complete but it wasn't showing on screen. Definitely wait 24 hours before trying that.
  20. Well we always do even if we start disliking it....The one thing I have yet to figure out is how to totally disable the "Charms Bar". Anyone know how?
  21. I have actually started liking Windows 8 as well, though it doesn't look much different when I get done altering it.
