    Is Isolated Win 10 Completely Safe?


    I use a Dell Windows 10 PC that is fully licensed and completely legal. It, with all the programs in it, works very well for my needs, and I would like to just seal it up somehow so I am free of any upgrades or changes by Microsoft that would disturb its performance in any way. I will take an image of the OS somehow so I can restore that in the event of a mishap. I will use a separate Chromebox computer for any online activities such as email, shopping, etc. Am I correct in thinking that if there is no wired or wireless access to the Win 10 PC through the internet I don't even need virus and malware protection for it, and Microsoft will leave me alone so I can just continue using it as is for the next five years? It sounds too good to be true, and maybe I have oversimplified something.

    :)

    Using Windows 10 Safe Mode to Fault Isolate/Troubleshoot

    Hi;

    I would like assistance to learn more about the Windows Safe Mode method for fault isolation/troubleshooting. I seem to recall that Safe Mode is useful for troubleshooting, but cannot recall details. I think the approach is to disable half of the existing apps, then reboot to Normal Mode to see if the problem continues.

    If no, the problem does not continue to occur, then the cause of the problem may be within the remaining, other one-half, of the enabled apps; so, disable the remaining one-half of apps, and try again, and again, etc. Thusly, drilling down until the one app that is causing the problem is identified/remains.

    If yes, the problem does continue to occur, then disable one-half of the presently enabled apps, and try again, and again, etc.

    However, I do not know where such a listing of the apps can be viewed and then also be disabled.


    Please clarify, correct my recall, or expand on the suggested method of troubleshooting by using Windows Safe Mode. Or, point me to an documented procedure for troubleshooting with Windows Safe Mode.

    TNX.
    .

    P.S. My present problem is that several icons that are located on my desktop screen and are in the taskbar are continuously flashing, and eventually, Windows 10 crashes. I am hoping that Safe Mode is useful in isolating the cause of this issue.

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Is Isolated Win 10 Completely Safe? :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
