    dogberry,
    I agree this system does not need instant updates - but what it needs is updates without manual intervention. To my knowledge win 7 HP does not have any equivalent of 10's 'slow ring' or...

    Paul,
    OK penny dropped - I had missed the significance of linking screen lock in with autologin - thanks for the patience!

    Paul,
    Agreed (obviously) re "No password = no security at the login screen" but surely "Autologin = no security at the login screen" so I don't see a difference here?Re network - yes there are file...

    Thanks Paul and wavy.
    What is the benefit of Autologon vs. just not having a password? I can see there may be some benefit in a multi user scenario, - perhaps forcing logon to an non admin account...
  6. To password or not to password - that is the question!

    OK so I have an old win 7 pc managing a service to the LAN it is on - details are unimportant - but it has to accept data pushed at it via the LAN. The ideal is for it to run unattended and...

    Bruce - did not know you could do that - thanks! Not quite a total fix as user can still ask for, and expect to get, a print when not on the correct net. However the probability of getting caught out...

    Joe,
    Good question - but no. The 'backup' is actually built into the ISP supplied modem. I thought of switching them - making the modem / router the main net by putting the printers on there. But...

    Paul,
    Yes I am familiar with that - which is why I said " . . . the top one is connected to - which is fine ..." because I had set the order as the link you provided describes. The kicker is in your...

    Lockdown WiFi choices

    Joe,
    The problem is the lack of user control over which wifi net is connected to. The user comes in, and boots up a pc. Which net are they connected to? If both were live at boot, then the top one...

    Lockdown WiFi choices

    We have two wifi nets running. "One" has the printers, and the other ("Two") does not. So it's annoying if your PC connects to Two and you try to print. What makes it really bad is that when a print...

    Windows 10 may be a problem for some?

    My own thoughts are trending in that direction - but I have no prior experience with VMs so I was cautious. I have installed VMBox on a spare SSD and this took up less space than I thought - 35 G...
