  1. Windows update reset settings and resets every time I restart


    Ever since I downloaded the Windows update back in late February my settings were reset to default and every time I shut down and restart my computer the settings revert back to default again so I have to redo all my default programs like chrome rather than edge and adobe reader for PDFs etc. It also resets my start menu and task bar. Also some programs just don't open anymore, basic things like calculator, photo viewer, mail app etc. It seems to be most of the apps/programs that come with windows that won't open. So far I haven't lost any files as I save everything on the C drive not one drive. I'm glad I haven't lost my files like some people have but its very annoying to reset my settings every time I turn on my computer. I'm in the middle of a Master's degree and don't have time to be messing around with my computer just to make it useable every time I turn it on. I tried uninstalling the updates but it didn't get my settings back so I reinstalled it. Just got another update yesterday and the same issue is happening. Any help would be much appreciated!

    :)

    Windows 10 always resets my Time

    Hi,

    Every time I restart or go into Linux then back to Windows it always resets and I have to update it via Internet. Why?

    Windows 10 always resets my Time

    Is your time zone set correctly in the OS? The OS has the ability to change the CMOS clock, so if you didn't setup your Windows Time correctly, then it is defaulted to Pacific Standard Time. It could also be a CMOS battery issue...but usually your time AND date will reset...so you'll see 12:00, January 1, 1979 or similar if the clock is resetting from a bad CMOS. If you shut your PC down, unplug it from the wall for say like 10 minutes, then plug back in and boot into BIOS, is your time/date wrong?

  4. Windows update reset settings and resets every time I restart

    LAN Connection settings reset after restart

    I just purchased a new laptop for school work. It is a Toshiba Satellite C55-A. I just opened it out of the box on Saturday night. For some reason, every time I restart the computer, the LAN Connection Settings in Internet Options automatically reset to use a proxy server. I have unchecked this and checked "automatically detect settings", but that always reverts after I restart. The only thing I can think of is that I configured my work email (Office 365) and a Windows popup said it would have to change security settings if I was going to use that type of email. Are there any other reasons this would happen and what would be the fix? I have installed a few school-based programs and would prefer not to have to do restore or recovery to save time on re-installing all that software.

    OS: Windows 8.1, updated with the most recent updates.
