    REM command acting strangely since 2021-07 Windows 10


    Greetings,since the beginning of July 2021, I have noticed that some of my batch files containing REM command on the 1st line are failing.I have experimented and found a one-line example of such a batch I named it funny.cmdREM command acting strangely since 2021-07 Windows 10 :mad:rem is.microsoft.funny/?answer=NOI would expect this batch to produce no output -- but instead I get:C:\temp>funny.cmd NO was unexpected at this time. C:\temp>@rem is.microsoft.funny/?answer=NOThe funny thing is, the REM command was working fine until end of 2021-06 -- it seems some MS update "improved" its functionality.Currently the simplest workaround is to a

    GPU-Z what command line parameter ?

    Suggestion: /? (-?) and /help (-help) command-line arguments to show a list of all possible arguments in a small window. *Smile REM command acting strangely since 2021-07 Windows 10 :)

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown REM command acting strangely since 2021-07 Windows 10 :(
