  1. Forced Updates now changing browser and settings


    OK what the hell, it seems that there's NO way to stop Microsoft from jamming updates onto my Windows 10 laptop, but last night it apparently updated my computer, restarted it and gave no notification of any kind. However, it changed my default browser to Internet Explorer (I had never used it on the laptop, just Edge) AND it changed my default search engine to Bing.


    Isn't hacking into a person's computer and making changes illegal ????

    :)

    Forced proxy settings

    Is there anyway to disable forced internet settings?

    When I try and remove the settings they come right back after I close and reopen

    My firefox runs fine but many apps on my computer are WRECKed right now. Steam for example I can't update my games or use the built in browser. Friends list still seems to stay up to date, but avatars aren't generated.

    I can't access my LAN settings for proxies either.

    I want to fix this without reformatting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Unable to set default browser

    • Does this issue happens while you try to set other browser as default too or is it specific to specific browser?

    Any browser.

    Already did the steps you suggested. It's some kind of bug where it's impossible to set a default browser at all.

    I heard elsewhere from one other user
    that it seems to be a problem with upgrading to 10 on the SP3. Sounds very specifc.
