  1. Why does Microsoft hate us having home networks???


    Another update and yet again my small home network of 6 Win 10 machines, 5 NAS servers is trashed!!

    I can only see the NAS servers none of the Win 10 machines will see each other or share files so its another round of resetting things on the machines like SMB settings which have been reset back to default then resetting all the network settings that have all been reset back to a non network machine.

    WHY MICROSOFT CANNOT YOU LEAVE OUR MACHINE SETTINGS ALONE THEY ARE NOT YOURS!!!!!


    this happens after a update is forced upon us normally when we are not not aware of it, so when we try to use our network to transfer a file or picture from one machine to another to show a client you cannot. I will not use Cloud base servers as I deem them unsafe to use, you are uploading your data to who knows where it can be accessed by anybody and used for whatever purpose they what.

    For example all the nude pictures published on the net were stolen via a cloud server and uploaded onto the net and the persons concerned have little to almost no way to take action against the person who stole them by then the pictures are all over the web and the owner of the cloud server can claim he had nothing to do with the thief.

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Did our Epson printer get hacked?

    Another question, is this on a home network or a work network? The steps @eidairaman1 listed are always a good first step. If this is on a work network you manage, I'd be much more concerned than the home one. It is possible someone is screwing with you, but malware could also be the culprit.

    Why does Microsoft hate us having home networks???

    How to Dump Networking Parameters?


    Had a customer with this problem, they had a brand new Dell Optiplex 3050, with Windows 10 1709, and Realtek Gbit Family of lan adapters (wired connection). After much troubleshooting (many suggestions listed in the course of this thread), it turned out the PC needed a bios update. Among the updates listed on the dell website for bios version 1.52 (I flashed it with the latest 1.92) was "Update RealtekLOM".

    LOM is "lan on motherboard" and the Realtek has flashable firmware.

    One step for others having this issue is to check their computer manufacturer's website for "Lom" firmware updates for the particular network adapter - whether integrated or an add-in.
