  1. Windows 10 de-crapifier: question for RetiredGeek

    I have successfully used your script (v2 dated 4-Nov-15) to uninstall (from the start menu) a number of pointless apps - thanks for that! I had to take ownership of the PF\WindowsApps folder to be...

    Thanks for that! I am still running XP, and frustrated by my inability to print to pdf (for free). Any print utilities I have tried in the past were deficient in some way (well, what do I expect...

    Its not for me to second-guess MS intentions (and desire to help), but I don't think trying to copy many of those hidden folders is wiorth the trouble. Appdata in particular is unlikely to be in a...

    I have seen this occasionally: try logging off then on, and if that fails restarting. I think it gets its knickers in a twist rather too easily.

    Thanks - and well done Germany! Seems a perfectly reasonable solution to me. I still wonder how people running XP are supposed to find out if their hardware is compatible.

    I wondered how that was possible, esp as I found a company selling W7 Home Premium on Amaz@n for 170 (now who would pay that?) - and from what I can see, they are selling you a CoA removed from an...

    Well, my first thought was 'why doesn't he google it?', for which I must apologise: it seems MS have removed all access to the upgrade advisor (for both W10 and 8) if one is currently running XP. I...

    I think the E89 is for W7. As such, if he is on XP now, W10 is not free. I am running W10 happily on a 10-year old Athlon 64X2-3800 with only 2GB of ram (its far better than W7 was on the same...

    Sounds like malware to me (not that I have ever read about your symptoms). That said, have a look in event viewer after restarting following a freeze - there should be some info in there.

    You shouldn't need to create a new account, or set anything up - I don't have W10 in front of me now, but search around on the login screen, and you should find the local account (try up-arrow ? -...

    Although this won't make the button work, can you not just drag the item from explorer into the (already open) email window?

    It may be that simply reseating it will fix the issue - but I would first try with just the 2GB. If that works, try all 3, if not then the 2GB is probably a goner - but trying it in a different slot...

    I have never seen that myself, but a brief Google suggests it may be a file permissions problem - that folder (?) has the sort of garbage name that system operations produce, so the folder may be...

    The screenshot showed 735GB used, but you could only identify 183GB of that. Is it possible that these image files that show as 0 space are hidden from you due to security settings? If I recall...

    Further comment: checkpoint 7F is just before keyboard checking - one might think that if the KB failed, the checkpoint would be the next one (80h), but trying another KB would still be worth a try....

    Well, I finally googled for the error message and 7FH & 50H, and found this interesting response to another with a similar problem on Dell's support forum. I can't help with the 7FH (NMI check...

    One image appeared, and i now understand. Re-reading all the above, I can't see if you have tried booting with the keyboard plugged into the (now powered) USB3 card. If not, give it a go. I think...

    Sorry for delay - juts back from bike trip to Germany. I don't think I helped with my observation about default video output, as if you were seeing the logo, the monitor was getting a signal (unless...

    Very much a guess, but assuming this video card was installed prior to the BIOS battery replacement, it seems likely that the BIOS is defaulting to using the previous (internal ?) video adapter, so...

    If he is using W10's native zip capability, he can't just 'open' it with W10, but the extension change method works. Then the created folder appears in File Explorer.

    I downloaded and ran it (under XP) and it created a folder of the same name as the .exe under the folder the .exe was in. Can you locate where the .exe is? If so, you should find the new folder...

    If your imaging program can be run from a bootable CD or USB stick, do that. It will overwrite the system partition and that should remove the infection.

    How do you know its unnecessary? Presumably the app author believes that elevated priviledge is required (they may be wrong).

    I wonder what is in that 'program data', or what you think is/may be in it, that makes it worth preserving? If you are considering a clean install (my preference when I make the same move shortly),...
