  2. Windows 10 upgrade - data loss

    I have the same problem. I had two users set up with Windows and after upgrading I have one user, which was the one that I did not use. Now I cannot figure a way to regain access to my other user account or to an admin account. I hope Microsoft posts
    a fix soon.

  3. Windows 10 Unexpected shutdown on start up

    OK, so i figured it out myself

    Found the logfile in "C:\Windows\Minidump".

    You need the Windows Development Kit to open it and a bit of googling to understand it.

    Found out that a Daemon driver caused an error. Removed Daemon but this didn't solve it. (ps: Daemon itself worked normally).

    I let hibernate my computer again and found another error with sptd2.sys: SCSI Pass Through Direct layer

    More google and ended up on the duplexsecure site. Downloaded the W10 version and voila: problem fixed.

    For the Windows support team: It would be really helpfull if you could pass problems to a more skilled helpdesk who can do more than proposing the standard solutions in case those won't work.

    Cheers

    Quote from the article, about Edge:

    To my recollection, MS had made similar claims for IE 11 like this one:

    Or this one:

    I do hope that MS is correct at this time, but I am somewhat skeptical...

  6. So 10 has become more secure, because it has got security notifications?! *chuckle
    All of the present features have been in Windows since Vista, but makes a great AD.

    So secure that when the default processing of the Microsoft Account is entered during setup, it uses the beginning of your email to name the useraccount folders. What if I want to be Dad on the family PC and Red Baron on my desktop?

    Let's guess what the rest of the email is, er, @hotmail.com, @live.com perhaps...*Sad

    Security in Windows 10

    As I understand it, isn't the biggest security threat Microsoft themselves, the Licence agreement seems to give them permission to monitor anything you do, type or voice on your computer ? and use it in any way they wish, including selling it on for marketing purposes.

    or am I misunderstanding the hype ?

  9. You can disable most of it in privacy settings, but it will cripple Cortana, store apps and other things.

    The 'trick' to the userid snafu is to bypass the MS login prompt whereupon you will get a userid prompt.
