    I had to use the edit registry method to enable Windows Updates.

    Do you or anyone else know if the group policy editor--gpedit.msc--is or is not supposed to be included with Win 8.1 Home?

    Compared to Firefox, I have always found Chrome to be a major RAM hog. From reading other's experiences, it looks like Google is as arrogant about Chrome as they are about Google+, YouTube, and...

    With OS updates being automatic in Win10 consumer, I am interested in (I assume) Win10 Pro so I will have the ability to wait to install updates. Did I miss where Microsoft says how (or if it is...

    By not allow users to sign up unless they have a cell phone, the sites are denying themselves more customers.

    Thanks, access-mdb.

    Do you use any of them?

    I'm after people's own experiences with webmail other than the well-known ones.

    I do have an outlook.com address and did not have to provide a cell phone number.

    @BruceR, your question is immaterial to the discussion.

    I am a Gmail user of long enough duration that I did not have to provide a cell phone number, thank goodness. (Same with Yahoo. I have not checked AOL to see if they now require a cell phone number...

    Let's be honest here. IObit and Revo go about getting paid differently. IObit uses the bundled software as a way to generate revenue. Revo uses the restricting of 64-bit uninstalls to its paid...

    Even though I have purchased Revo Pro for its ability to uninstall both 32- and 64-bit apps, I like IObit for its ability to do that for free; a handy attribute when dealing with friends' 64-bit...

    FWIW-Firefox has always updated every 6 weeks or thereabouts. THE change Mozilla was getting away from sub-versions like 35.0.1, 35.0.2 or 35.1, 35.2, and going to 34.0, 35.0, 36.0, etc. when...

    @bluebird2,

    Are you seeing this when using a brand new profile, too? Sometimes, a corruption may creep into your regular profile that even "resetting" does not correct.

    Rereading what Woody wrote, I take it as MS is running mandatory automatic updating up the flag pole to see who salutes and who doesn't. Users of Win10TP should make every effort to provide feedback...

    I am curious. Are any Win7 users on older hardware, circa 2010-2011 finding any driver issues with Win10? (I have not yet had the time to install and try the Tech Preview.)

    At this point, it seems resolved. Only time will tell.

    Windows Firewall was on and remained on. The only Action Center messages I received MSE or other AV program was not running.

    That is the thing. I cannot get it to reinstall. That is when the error 0x80070643 comes up.

    This odyssey began when I connected a little-used Windows 7 laptop to the internet to get the January updates. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite C50-A running factory-installed 64-bit Windows 7. It...

    I use Revo Uninstaller Pro because my systems are 64-bit. It does a very good job of uninstalling and removing programs. It should be considered a viable option when trying to uninstall most programs.

    Not intending to confuse the matter, but there is a "Windows Defender" included in Windows 7, but IIRC, it is an antimalware tool and not a full antivirus. If you have installed MSE or other...
