    PC Problems

    So, a few weeks ago, I tried to turn on the night light feature on my pc, since it was getting dark outside, I searched 'night light' in the settings search bar, it came up on the list of options, but when I clicked on it, nothing happened, it just stayed on the settings home page. I tried this again a few times, getting increasingly more frustrated, and nothing happened, and the same thing was happening with a lot of other settings. I just decided to leave it alone because I don't really need the night light anyway, and about a week later, I tried to open the app store, but a popup came up that said "This app has been blocked by your system administrator" which was really weird, I checked my user profile, and it explicitly states thatI am the administrator. I looked up how to fix it, and the internet said to open the 'regedit' setting, but when I tried to open that the same popup came up. Again, I just decided to leave it alone since I never really use the Microsoft app store. A couple days ago, I tried to download an app off the internet, and a popup came up that said "The app you're trying to install isn't a Microsoft verified app" and it gave me an option to change this in settings, but when I went to settings it basically said only the administrator can change these settings. The only thing I could think of to do was completely wipe my pc, which I did, and afterward everything was back to normal, all three problems were gone, I downloaded a few apps before going to bed, but this morning, I tried to re-download spotify, and the same "not microsoft approved" popup came up!! I checked and the other two problems were back as well!! I really need to fix this! The first two problems I can deal with, but I NEED to be able to download apps off the internet, and I've tried everything I could think of!!!

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.

  3. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
