    Hi Friends,


    I am using Dell laptop, with factory installed OS i.e. win 10 home. however all of a sudden while I was working , got pop up to activate windows, I got surprised, since mine was pre-installed OEM copy of windows. On checking the properties, found that its now win 10 Pro, and when checking the install date in command prompt, am getting the windows install date of 10 days back. I never knew, how come it took win 10 pro updates. to my surprise, i checked the programs and features, there the original installation dates of the apps are dating back to a year i.e. 2018.......i am constantly getting alerts that the system license will expire after certain number of days......is there a way out that i can get win 10 home, without me need to perfrom a clean OS re-install and application installation. i have lots of apps installed, is there a way out to fix this?

    :)
     

  2. Disabling automatic driver updates for GeForce on Win 10 Home

    I've run into a problem which I already solved but I wanna ask around to make sure this doesn't happen again.

    My GTX 1080 was running perfectly fine on 385.69 drivers, butter smooth for months both on Win 10 Home and 8.1 before. Today I noticed quite a lot of stutter in ME:Andromeda, after a while I saw my driver version was 388.13 which aere notorious for stuttering. The system must've updated the driver automatically. I uninstalled 388.13 and my system reverted back to 385.69 automatically. Everythings run smooth once again.

    My question is: how do I stop this from happening again ? I'm okay with automatic updates for the system, chipset,RST and the like but GPU drivers I'd like to always install manually. I did what I found in this article

    http://www.itprotoday.com/windows-server/stop-automatic-driver-updates-windows-10

    but is this going to do what I'm asking for ? I'm a very inexperienced Win 10 user, I've only been on the new system for a month or two. Need advice.

  3. Win 10 1607 update

    Installed the update manually at the the moment everything is bueno.
    It seems that Microsoft has a big problem in there update department windows 7 update has problems win 8 update has problems. Windows 10 update is so-so.

    Disabling automatic driver updates for GeForce on Win 10 Home

    Yes, I don't know what he is on to, I used 8.1 for years (up till October this year) and it never, never did automatic driver updates. I don't know what's wrong with this guy, he's always bitching so much about stuff, and often just making it up. can't even write a senetence without cursing something.



    anyway, if there's no easy way to do that on win 10 then I'll just have to remebmer to check my driver version if my games show any malfunctioning.

    also, the method I used was this

    How to Disable Automatic Driver Downloads on Windows 10

    I copied a wrong link in my OP.
