    Hello All

    Issue is my sister rarely updates her laptop, for a while she had no internet at her place, now has internet, unknown if she ever updates it, or applies HP bios updates to fix any security issues or various other issues. My Desktop has Windows 10 Pro, Her Laptop is Windows 10 Home, would quick assist be able to be used and could update it using her internet, and i could work with it from my Desktop?


    Very Close to Comcast cap limit on my internet currently, so don't think good she brought it over here at this point, used so far this month over 75 percent of allowed data usage before going over, and potentially being charged and overage

    Any advice or tips are welcome

    :)

    Quick Assist

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please reply to the following questions to get a better understanding of the issue:

    • What happens when you search for quick assist in the start menu?
    • Are you getting any error message while opening Quick Assist?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?
    • Since when are you facing this issue?
    • Did you make any changes to the computer recently?

    However, you can try the troubleshooting steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: Re-registering the app

    1. Type PowerShell on the search bar.
    2. Right click on PowerShell and select
      Run as administrator.
    3. Type the following command and press Enter:

      Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    4. Once the process is completed, restart the computer and search for Quick Assist.

    Method 2: Creating new user account

    You can create a new user account and check if you are able to open Quick Assist.
    To create a new user account please follow the steps from L: Create a local user
    or administrator account in Windows 10.

    Hope it helps.

    Quick Assist not working

    Good diagnostic step.

    You've tried disabling 3rd party program startups, but there could be more things starting beyond those listed in the task manager startup list, if that's what you used.

    Ideally you would have hands on access to both PCs... but that's not so. All credit to them for creating a new user account etc.

    If you wished to disable more startups on the problem account you could use Autoruns (free from MS). But that seems asking a bit much of someone else remotely.

    Of course, the problem could have nothing whatsoever to do with startups... you might want to check all services are default, for example, in particular those necessary for this.

    Presumably it's not been blocked by the firewall:

    - some unfinished discussion as to whether both accounts had to be MS accounts or not.

    I found this:
    Windows 10 Quick Assist: Helpful Remote Assistance App or Potential Vulnerability? — Steeves and Associates


    https://4sysops.com/archives/remote-control-windows-10-with-quick-assist/


    This gives useful detail on how it works. For example, it uses port 443, so you need to check that's not blocked.
    It also indicates how to block it- so you can check that doesn't apply.
