    Will New Windows 10 upgrade reset all functions to defaults


    I am still having problems with PC freezing up at various times. I did receive help from NavyLCDR and AndreTen, but I am wondering if that the Windows 10 upgrade coming at the end of July will reset things and fix my problem or will it save all the incorrect settings?
    My PC just freezes at odd times usually when I am on the Internet and on shutdown I get the notice: "Task Host window is stopping background tasks" The other thing I have recently noticed my modem is going crazy when this happens, as if it were trying to download a massive amount of data. Once I restart my PC it may work for hours or may only work for 15 minutes without a restart.
    I understand the coming upgrade will have some features like Windows 8.1 which I really liked.
    I am not that savvy when it comes to software function so I need a lot of help, although way back when I worked for companies that did work for IBM, RCA Sarnoff Labs, Bell Labs. I learned all about chip processing and hardware but nothing about the software.
    What A Pity That !!
    Anyway should I wait and see if the upgrade helps ?............. *Confused

    :)

  3. New User not generating user folder

    I was able to locate an answer: The Users\Default folder generated during the free upgrade to Windows 10 from another version does not function properly. When I replaced that entire folder (and flagged it as hidden), I was able to add a new user normally.

    I hope that the next Windows update will include a new Users\Default folder to fix everyone's problem.

    Will New Windows 10 upgrade reset all functions to defaults

    Hi again!
    You never posted back, if there were any problems after sfc /scannow...
    that was just for start. You may have corrupted syastem or some malware too. Windows upgrade won't solve those.

    Run latest Malwarebyte Antimalware, just be careful to run free option.
