    Update erased system files, personal data.


    Our windows 10 pc updated this morning and erased all of our personal data and some critical system files. When it starts up now we get the usual start up screen then it goes to the please wait loading screen for about 30 min or so before going to a blank desktop. The start menu does not work, the file explorer will not open, the only thing that will start is the task manager, which shows nothing. My kids had a lot of stuff on this pc, any suggestions on an actual fix for this. As a consumer of microsoft products which for the most part ive had very little problem with I dont want to hear how this is my problem Microsoft update destroyed our pc the responsibility is soley in the hands of Microsoft.

    :)

    Remote erasing of data on lost phone

    I have misplaced my phone while travelling in China.

    Attempts to call the phone were unsuccessful, suggesting that either the phone was switched off or that the SIM card was removed/.

    I called my phone service provider to deactivate the number.

    i tried to login to my windows account to erase the data on my phone but got a message that it was unsucessful.

    My questions are,

    1) will I still be able to the erase the data remotely if the person who picked up my phone had replaced the SIM card

    2) will I still be able to the erase the data remotely if my number was deactivated by my service provider

    3) what else, if anything, could I do to wipe any data ( e.g. Contact list, messages, whatsap messages etc.) from the phone?

    Unfortunately, a passcode is not required to unlock my phone,

    i'm not sure I have wifi access to check the replies for the next few days, but any advices on this matter is much appreciated.
