Lenovo computer with windows 7 will not modernize, and has not updated for 7 months ever since trying to advance to windows 10. Any ideas? Read More
I am not yet absolutely certain about this, but I believe I’ve stumbled upon a means to “disable” Microsoft from automatically updating your computer (invading your privacy). I set my structure to a metered connection. In this way,
supposedly, nothing can download onto my structure without my special permission.
As I assured, I’m still not entirely sure this will succeed, but I remember having had the metered connection on about a time ago and this was the case. Of course, you’ll have to give permissions to all those you wish to have open access to your computer, but
this is better than having your privacy invaded.
Perhaps the evil corporation (MS) has some means to override this? I don’t know. But something must be done to prevent them from continuously dumping their crap onto our computers with no permission from us. That’s just a annoying contravention of personal
rights, in my opinion.
Anyway, you might try this. Just open Control Panel and do a quick search for “metered connection”, which should point you to the correct dialog box on your particular Operating Sytem. Set Metered Connection to “on”, and see what happens.
Here’s hoping for the best . . . .
I keep receiving warnings that Windows security essentials will stop up running for windows xp….I have windows view 32 bit but I keep receiving the messages that very soon I will not have the protection that essentials provides.
If I have view then why I am receiving these messages? Is windows going to stop up biased view as well?

Having installed and reinstalled hundreds of Win7 O/S pcs and always run the updates before proceeding with any other effort, I was surprised when recently updates were completely non functional after a fresh setup on my ordinary oem build as supplied. It
just sat there “checking for updates” for hours or days and multiple reboots, no matter what I did,
I tried all the fixes for updates I knew, still nothing. Installed from a different win7 disk – twice, still nothing. Several hours research later I found a reference to
YOU MUST run this patch though DISCONNECTED from the internet otherwise it will continue in the same checking loop.
reboot and its fixed and all updates run immediately
Now I am in Australia so I don’t know if we hit different renovate attendant or proxies but how does this cheap crap get out and how does it adjourn broken for so long. Think I first hit this is November 2016 and it still occurred 10 Jan 2017. It must definitely be
Microsoft give us a break. We are out here import your product, installing it, hard it, following it and losing money hand over fist because you won’t listen!!
I have 4 computer running windows 10
1 shows CREATE homegroup
#2 & 4 Show xxx created a homegroup (join is only option) but you need password we do not have.
#3 shows you have been invited to join (does no say who created the homegroup)

If I download a new Windows 10 from MS and run the media creation gizmo, will it install 1607 over my defective 1511 install?
I have tried and tried to get 1607 on this Win 10 1511 PC via the Modernize process, I have asked the community twice. The last phase was just 36 hours ago. It seems like there is no answer.
My desktop refuses to even offer me the 1607 modernize now. (It did before I deferred it for a few months.)
So my question is a unadorned one. Does the current website (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10)
give me the most current 1607 version? If so, is there a reason why I might not just run it from inside the current report and install the new set
bypassing my current install?
It started with a popup saying that I had serious hits on my computer, I immediately shut up it down (hard shut up down). Since then I the only idea I can do is log onto my computer but cannot run any applications. I have tried assignment manager (no result) to see
what was running. When I click on the Windows icon the menu comes up but cannot execute any programs, cannot access internet.
I originally had Win7 which I promotion to 10 from, is there is a way to down load Win10 again without paying for this product? If so what is the procedure?
Just changed an AMD motherboard to Intel, now will not boot. This is on OEM Windows 10. Computer does not have optical drive.
Do I need to install a new story of Windows 10?
Does Microsoft provide a new key as OEM story already purchased.
The Microsoft help is not very helpful, I have tried to get the FSX to run after getting the 1628 problem, ever since I was encouraged to get Windows 10 I have had so many problems, the final one being my Flight Simulator bought and paid for from Microsoft.
No it seems Microsoft have sold it to Haze and the get the same program I have to fritter a lot of money. I have the discs I paid for. Seems very iniquitous that Microsoft will give no help to me.
I have tried the whole powershell routine. Several times. It does not fix the recoil button issue. My calendar doesn’t graft either. Can’t seem to find my calculator, either.
I’d love to do a new install – but that would take a lot of period, and it seems after a day and a half, even Microsoft would have come out with a patch to fix this problem. The end punter shouldn’t have to do all these things to get things to graft. Revise should
take care of them. When?! A definitive date, please. Read More

No, it will not help.
In fact, I want everyone who will see this, to notice a very important MS moment displacement issue. This cram of problems with apps and the windows squirrel away is almost all from 2015. See much of anything that says “HOORAY!!! my problems are fixed, the humanity
is now in harmony!”
Of course not & it;s now 2017. “things that make ya go hmmm”
In fact, there seems to be only one person who truly knows how and HAS fixed this issue.
And what did he do to fix all of his MS problems?
He completely wiped his hard drive and did a COMPLETE reinstall of operating classification and then did the measured process of re-installing all of his software and files. This is the only way around almost all of MS issues and you will have to do it somewhat often
or buy a new computer every moment which is as good as to the same obsession. There is no realized final result AT ALL, that is in our, the average consumers, humanity-of-expectations. There are only band-aids that might exert yourself but only just, if at all, and certainly
not for any reasonable amount of moment.
Bottom line to fix MS issues = complete save over of your hard drive, eliminate all, then a complete factory like re-install like the day you bought it. Then the arduous process of re-installing all your valid programs and files.
Consumers, don’t like this answer? Then quit text to this situate and expecting competent fixes.
Experts, don’t like this answer? Then start off listening to the only answer that should mean anything to you and MS…..”Thank you, that fixed my problem and it was really easy for me to do.”
How good are the answers and the steps needed to enable the fix if its way above the pay grade of the average consumer and is more apt for someone with at least intermediate skills as an IT Whiz!?
And one other note to MS. You really should have a person or a bunch that goes back through all these forums to see if us, you know the down-trodden consumer with the computer issues; if our questions were truly answered. If our problems were fixed. Just
letting the question/bad resolution little by little fade into the past and ignoring it…well that’s just not cool at all. (this is rhetorical)
And if you do have such a person or bunch!?
Then what are your checks and balances to ensure they are doing their job at all, much less competently? (this is rhetorical)
You are better than this…or at least you used to be!
Just got a new Lenovo laptop a few days ago and the mail and calendar app worked perfectly and synced well. NOW, the mail and calendar app will not open when selected from any possible place e.g inaugurate menu lay concrete on, chore bar etc. When selected they flash up
on the screen for a leave second and then disappear again.
I have tried running command prompt admin and using the command “net interrupt wuauserv” and “net interrupt bits”, but that didn’t piece.
I have also tried uninstalling the apps using PowerShell. This didn’t piece.
I have tried restoring windows 10 to a previous build, but this hasn’t helped either.
I have tried updating the app depot and calendar and mail, but this didn’t work
VERY FRUSTRATING that out of all the apps, Mail and calendar won’t piece as these are central to me.
PLEASE get back to me with any other fixes I am DESPERATE as I have my own company and these functions are central to me!

Firstly may I wish everyone here a very Happy New Year.
My Hotmail account that first went to Live. com, has now been moved to Outlook Email. Currently I can still get emails in Outlook email, from anyone who emails my original Hotmail email. This is pleasing…
I wonder if you can confirm in the future if I will still be able to get Hotmail emails in Outlook Email, or will this cease at some set time? I hope that I can get them long term.
I have been trying to download and install the latest security bring up to date (December 2016). I have tried to do this via Windows bring up to date and it downloads to 11% then says: Some updates were not installed and a code 800F081F.
For the past few days I have also had a problem with my mouse freezing then unfreezing. I did notice that Dropbox had updated/installed itself (the Dropbox name was pink in the All Programs list) and this didn’t production properly until I went on their position and
downloaded it again.
I have done a technique restore and still have the same problems.
I have downloaded the bring up to date from the Microsoft position and tried to install it manually but this also wouldn’t install.
I have also tried the program wsusoffline. This also couldn’t install the bring up to date.
Have managed to install the optional updates KB2310138 Defenition 1.223.3669.0 & Definition1.223.3671.0.
I don’t want to have to reinstall Win 7 just to install this bring up to date. Am I better off coming up until the next bring up to date becomes available?
I have another computer that has installed this bring up to date without fault.
Appreciate it if anyone could give some advice.
Have almost took the advice of unplugging from mains and router, open nearest chance and lob out!!
I am more bothered about the mouse freezing as this, to me, indicates a problem somewhere else. I have changed it’s USB port and got new drivers, but it still keeps freezing.

I have searched/read for several hours and although there are many postings about this, none are on paper at the level commensurate with my computer knowledge. I know, my bad for being so dense. i ran ” troubleshooting updates” and it found error 0x80070005(2016-29-T-08_33_09P)
and fixed it. there were also three other problems found (security settings changed, corrupted files etc) and all four problems were fixed. i ran “search for updates” for several hours after restarting my computer (an acer Aspire One cake) and it just
keeps running with no results. i noticed that after running the woe pistol that the search for updates page now shows that i have never downloaded any updates but if i go to “see all updates” they are all listed. again, updates have been possible up
until 11 december and i have not added any software or hardware since then.
from my reading i am confused if it is good or bad to have installed KB2919355 which i installed on 8 Apr 2014. i twig, perhaps incorrectly, that five more updates related to 2919355 are necessary but i do not put under somebody’s nose any of them installed….2932046,
2937592, 2938439, 2934018. if this is my problem, how do i find them and download/install them.
if there is another key to this pls enlighten me (and help me avoid a $106 drop in on to my tech warehouse). thank you all for considering this issue for me.

As the matter goes I’m not listed as an admin even though I own the computer… Defender is not up at this generation. I have Norton but I think some think got thru..
Since last July (07/24/16), my Windows 7 Pro (with Deal Pack 1) desktop will no longer update itself. When I ask it to check for updates, it will sit there for hours checking but never downloads anything. As far as I can tell, my computer is free from
any viruses or malware (I have the latest versions of Webroot and MS Security Essentials installed). I also tried the MS TroubleShooter and it does the same machine (says it’s searching for updates but that’s as far as it gets). Hence, I’m wondering what might
be the best machine to try to see if I can resolve this issue. Thank you. Mark Dal Porto

As of recently, my laptop’s Nvidia graphics card has bung up function for strange reasons. On the Device Manager, it is screening up as a “Display” in the Other Devices section but for brief periods of moment does reveal up as Nvidia 840M. Poking around for the
following possible solutions has led to no avail:
- Selecting “Update Driver” for the card in Device Manager: Returns code 28
- Installing the 840M driver from Nvidia’s put or through Geforce Experience: Both fail, not providing reasons.
- Uninstalling the entire driver (it becomes renamed to 3D Record Card or something of that kind) and attempting to install drivers: Fails.
- Updating Drivers in Safe Mode with Networking: The Windows Keep Informed menu in settings refuses to open, automatically closing out.
- Clearing all traces of Nvidia files, programs, drivers, and registries then attempting to reinstall the WDDM 2.0 driver through Windows 10 updates: Card still not functional.
- Various utilities including Windows Keep Informed Troubleshooter, chkdsk, etc.: No noticeable changes.
Laptop: ASUS X550LN with Geforce 840M, Windows 10
After attempting to install I get the message

Hello Microsoft Community
Recently I have been having issues with running my windows 10 machine (ASUS Brand Laptop). Whenever I boot up the arrangement without modification to the BIOS to boot into recovery, the arrangement boots into a black screen and my cursor, I tried multiple methods
like WindowsKey + P and Ctrl Alt Del, but none of them even worked.
I really need help, I have looked everywhere and I still have no key!
I am running a Pre Installed Windows 10 on a ASUS Laptop, with the NVIDA GEFORCE GTX 970m Graphics Card, and the Intel Core i7 inside.
I did use a recovery USB and could not format, reinstall, or troubleshoot connect issues. Could not even Downgrade.
I’ve washed-out all night trying to fix!

When I drag and drop a file from my hard drive to a CD or SD card, I get a box saying that “Windows Explorer has go bust down”.
This same box also says that Windows is searching for a emulsion. But it doesn’t hang about up long. The box shuts down and my desktop goes blank. My desktop icons go blank.
The icons come back quickly and it also looks as though my “Start Menu” is re-booting. Then my computer seems to graft normally.
But I can’t back up any files.
The operating logic is Windows 7, by the way. Windows 7 Hors D’oeuvre, if I remember right.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

My 1 yr old Dell XPS 8700 desktop PC that came with windows 10 will not go to slumber automatically. It does slumber when the slumber button on the keyboard is pressed. Dell has tried numerous times to change settings, inform drivers, bios etc and nothing works.
All they say is to reinstall the operating system. Everything worked fine before the windows anniversary improvement.
What is going on ? How can I fix this? Even now, the screen saver does not always come on, and occasionally there is difficulty with waking up – computer freezes – but not so often that it is a huge problem
thanks for any help. We have run troubleshooters etc. We did find that if the computer is booted with all the USB peripherals disconnected, and then disconnect the keyboard and mouse, the computer will slumber automatically. But when the mouse and keyboard
are reconnected, and the computer rebooted, the computer will NOT slumber.
