    Identity Check


    On my Win 10 pc I now keep getting this yellow flag to confirm my identity "across all my devices". I don't have any other devices. In order to get rid of this annoying demand ("dismiss" doesn't attract any response) I followed the link provided - ending up on some very unsafe websites in the process. When at last I got an emailed code (my phone is guarded and arbitrarily messages any unrecognised caller to hang up, so I didn't hear the code), it was rejected.

    Any advice, please?

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

  4. Identity Check

    configured identity

    Hi Daniel,

    Thank you for your response.

    I suggest follow the steps provided below and check.

    Method 1: Disable Antivirus software

    Disable the Antivirus software temporarily and check if it helps.

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect the computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable the antivirus software. If you do have to temporarily disable it to install other
    software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time the antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    As you are facing an issue with modern apps as well, I suggest you to reset the Windows Store cache.

    Method 2: Reset the Windows Store cache.

    Follow the steps to reset the Windows Store cache

    • Press Windows Key + R key.
    • Type wsreset.exe and press Enter Key.
    Your Windows Store cache will be reset. Check if the is resolved.

    Hope it helps. Do let us know if your issue is resolved. For any further query, feel free to contact us.

    Thank you.
