    A speculative article by a professor in Warwick is your source? Read the quotes I posted in #58. One individual Facebook post by a team gm and a lot of matters undecided, with apparently crossed...

    Thanks Susan. This is the sort of information that would have helped the article, given the apparently different ways MS is using the term service and the fact that they haven't clarified it...
  3. Thanks, but is all MS has had to say on the...

    Thanks, but is all MS has had to say on the subject of "service" - a Facebook(?) post by one team general manager? Even the very recent article primarily about business users you linked from ZDNET is...

    Bob, Would you mind restating that in non-insider English? I really can't figure out exactly what you're talking about. Thanks,
  5. You speak from inside-the-executive-suite...

    You speak from inside-the-executive-suite knowledge or idle speculation? But let's say they are in the apps. Then the question becomes which ones and whether or not that will be a way to nickle and...

    "Contrary to some rumors, there will not be any sort of subscription fee after you upgrade. Microsoft will send free updates for the life of the OS."

    Thanks for the explanations, Susan, but come...

    This is embarrassing. Turns out none of the above: some of the SATA ports were disabled in BIOS. I'm guessing it was by default, because I wouldn't have done that. But it's odd that a few were...
  8. CD-DVD drive not seen by BIOS or Windows except...

    I've got a weird problem. Several weeks ago I switched motherboards (and cpu) to a Gigabyte Z97-UD5H-BK and a couple of weeks ago I switched system SSDs to a 256gb Samsung 850 Pro. There were some...

    "Microsoft obviously learned some hard lessons; the Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 are designed to be used primarily as tablets with no compromises. The Surface 3 weighs in at just 1.4 pounds, and the...

    "With this acquisition, there will be some changes in the newsletter, designed to make our information even more useful and timely."

    I wasn't aware of the acquisition. In talking about "some...
  11. Who ever heard of a service being free in the...

    Who ever heard of a service being free in the business world, at least over time? What other Microsoft services are free vs. paid? My assumption of their point is that Windows as a service will be...

    Yes, I think the live LPS with a power line to the USB audio card is likely the culprit. The person who checked the mobo for me also checked the peripherals and said they were ok. The unfortunate...
  13. Thanks for your replies. Had someone look at it...

    Thanks for your replies. Had someone look at it and he reports the PSU is fine, but noticed that the mobo as a burn spot near the USB busses and that further testing shows the board is bad...
  14. Your reply raises two questions I've been...

    Your reply raises two questions I've been wondering about:

    - if the PSU was off, how could something past it in the cirucit have been affected?
    - if there's a short down the line, wouldn't there...
  15. No electrical response to starting desktop compter

    Here's the scenario, short version... Start with homebuilt i7-2660K desktop that works fine electrically (and otherwise).

    - computer electrical cord from 120v outlet, Seasonic 650W PSU switch off...

    I've long used autoruns and MinimServer.lnk it is checked there. My understanding is that programs that don't normally open at startup need to be put in the Startup folder, located at...
  17. Program in startup menu doesn't start on boot

    In the attached screenshot, MinimServer.lnk used to open in the sys tray on computer startup, but I think it was after a system restore last week it stopped doing so and I haven't been able to find a...

    A glitch like that could occur with most any program.

    Postings crossed. See my update. I like IZArc for everything.

    Follow up: To test Paul's suggestion, I went to change the Windows default association back to IZArc, but there's no "zip" listing there anymore. I rebooted a couple of times and...
  21. Thanks for the suggestions. I had run scannow and...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I had run scannow and Windows 8 Mgr, but to no avail. I'll give the other a try. In the meantime, I tried another approach that I should have thought of first: change the...
  22. "The requested operation requires elevation" error with zipped files

    Win 8.1 Pro x64 (clean install Dec 2014). After years of no problems with zipped files, since Feb 3 I've been getting an "elevation error" when trying to open them in Windows Explorer directly or...

    Hard to know what to take seriously. With Opera 12.17 on an i7-2660K desktop computer, Charter uses OOKLA and returns 66+ mb/s down, 4.4 up and ping 9 ms, while OOKLA's own site, depending on the...
