Done that and it was no help
In preparation for a Windows 10 upgrade, I did a new fresh load of Windows 7 Pro SP1 to an HP netbook with no apparent problems. I can't get the machine to update. It reports that it has never...
Is it just me or are other people as fed up with Chrome as I am.
Apart from what has now become incessant advertising whenever I do a search.
It updates itself and changes itself with no...
I have solved the problem.
You cannot download these patches using Chrome. I better not say anything else as I don't want to be accused of posting on the wrong section of the forum.
I am not double posting. My post here is a specific request re Windows 8.1. My post in Windows 10 is expressing my concerns.
I'm trying to download the Windows 8.1 Update (KB 2919355) from the Microsoft site without success.
Can someone please provide an alternate location.

As a retired geek you should know nothing is given away for free.
Google/Chrome users 'pay' for the software by being bombarded with advertising.
You are missing my point slighty. Whether I can run or not run Java is of not much consequence to me. What I objecting to is the arrogance of Google to do so with saying so.

"Please do not update your Chrome browser - it will break Java!
If you already have the newest version of Google's Chrome, we...

Seen that link before, went there, tried it and it didn't work. So it appears that I am stuck with an out of date os before I even start.

I keep getting the above error code when trying to update my Acer notebook. I've checked the web and this forum for a solution, but none seems to exist. I read a long thread on this and it seems that...
Due to the vagaries of the UK Companies House, I have had to install IE11 on my machine. On my normal browser (Chrome) I have Collusion, which does an excellent job of blocking trackers.
Is it safe to download the Black Tuesday updates yet? I haven't seen any advisory yet
No, that's just where the cursor happen to alight. I'm logged on as me
I attach 2 files, 1 showing that the patch IS and the 2nd showing my permissions.
Are they correct?
Joe: I press cleanup and wait until it has finished and I still can't find Clean Up System Files
BATcher: It might be "just a minor irritation" to you, but I have an SSD and the directory...
Yes it is installed
Yes I have administrative permissions
When I run Cleanup it shows the files being searched for but it still isn't being shown
Think I'll take the easy solution - retire and...
After installing the patch, I rebooted and got the reported result of totally nothing.
