  1. WINDOWS UPDATES RESETTING MY PERSONAL DESKTOP SETTINGS


    Each time I receive an MS update for MS Edge my computer is reset and I am taken back to the "Microsoft Edge Welcome Page"? I have to continuously rebuild my personal desktop settings and must also re-authorize some of my software applications. I may receive updates 2 or 3 times a day from MS. My C: drive downloads and pictures are totally deleted even though I have synched my PC via MS Edge. Can someone please help me with this matter? This is my second inquiry concerning this issue and I all I am getting is additional questions from MS instead of a solution. I think I have described the situation clearly.


    The issue I am speaking of below also seems to be effecting incoming e-mails through Outlook. It appears that during the update period I do not receive any e-mails in my Outlook mail box. I have shut down Windows updates on my computer for the time being until I hear back from MS with a solution.

    :)

  4. WINDOWS UPDATES RESETTING MY PERSONAL DESKTOP SETTINGS

    HELP 5870 Issues:CCC resets settings on restart, Partial desktop, Lock in 2D clocks!

    I didn't understand! Are suggesting this as a prelude to re-installing the CCC again?
    If yes, it's the case of fresh windows installation which I already did..
    If no, removing CCC will result in the desktop switching to a horrible low rez (800x600) and there'll be no black border and no partial desktop!!
    I did try removing only the monitors' drivers, as I said in my first post (Step 3), but I guess It wasn't clear..Sorry! English is not my first language, you know!
