  1. Windows removes programs and changes settings after update


    I just updated my computer and much like every other time, my background and other personalization options have been reset. And even more concerning, windows changed some of my privacy settings by allowing microsoft to collect additional diagnostics data and enabling location services, both of which were previously disabled. Is microsoft going to change this anytime soon? Because for an os that I am forced to use for certain programs to run and is on most computers sold, issues like this that should be very easy to fix are still present.

  2. Add Remove Programs in Windows XP doesn't finish loading program list?!

    Add Remove Programs in Windows XP doesn't finish loading the program list (It never even starts displaying any programs) and I believe it may be that a uninstall program messed up completely and Windows can't figure out what programs are installed because of it. What is the problem? Please?

    To turn off windows updates in windows 7 follow these steps:

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
    then in the option bar select 'Never check for updates'.

    Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.
