  1. Grey Boxes Since 1607 Update


    Just did the 1607 update on my HP laptop with Win10 originally installed. Since the update every site I visited using Chrome browser would display grey boxes of varying sizes in different places on the site that would slow loading and eventually fill in with text or images. Removed the updates and everything back to normal. Anyone else experience this?

  2. Windows Hello doesn't show up

    Since the new upgrade of windows version 1607 When I open the Sign-in option under Require Sign-in I have the message in red:

    windows hello is preventing some options from being shown

    and the next line

    if you've been away, when should windows require you to sign in again?

    Since the Anniversary update my search box is now bright white, not the normal grey

    Since the Windows 10 Anniversary Update my Search Box (Ask me anything) is bright white on the desktop. It is very hard on the eyes since all the task items are on a black background.

    Can't find any information on this searching. Anyone else have this problem and found a way to get it back to grey?

    Grey Boxes Since 1607 Update

    Need a screen shot. If it is just Chrome, sounds like a CSS problem. What Extensions are you using? Do you get the same issue if you use Firefox with no extensions, or run Chrome with no extensions?

    That is as easy as it gets. Make sure that any extensions that you believe could have caused it, are removed or disabled if it starts up again. Chrome does have a nasty habit of going run away on memory for some websites such as those newspapers ran by Gatehouse and a few others that whoever their web designers are, they want to run every type of POC on the site, just to kill off any reading of the articles.
