    Ermm did you have the same problem?

    Because it got worse...... At the same time as I was thinking I had it sorted, it all went wrong again and 2 hours later I was back to status quo (whom I like but don't mean!!).

    Finally after many diagnostics, it turned out that Microsoft was doing a massive update at exactly the same time and each iteration of their update would revert back to their default.....NOT only that, despite their statement on their update about all the files being left where they were they then proceeded to delete several apps that I use because they were not up to date!! These apps did not originate from Microsoft.

    So having though I had it cracked there was then 24 hours of 'WTF' followed by Microsoft shutting up and me getting it back to order.

    For those of you who's windows 10 machines have not yet done the update, be prepared there is a massive set of updates in the pipeline which will take between 20 mins and 2 hours depending on the speed of your broadband and your computer, just let them run till they peter out then examine the detritus after.

    Sorry Pierre,
    I have had a problem signing on to the forum since the last update. I have to put my Username in and then my Password every time (not really a problem, more of an inconvenience). I now logon using Firefox and it remembers me
    I use Linux on my machines but I have Win 7 on the grandson's machine and it keeps pushing me to accept Win 10. It has already installed 6Gb (six Gigabytes) of Win 10 on the HD in the folder '$Windows.~BT'. There is no point in getting rid of this file as Windows Update will reload at the next update. It is possible to remove the file but there are other problems occurring with the Win 10 install such as the practice of deleting files from your computer. Win 10 is actively removing files and storing them in 'Windows .old', they can be restored but possibly better to re-install them.

    take care
    Don W

    Hi Don, if you are doing a windows 10 update from win 7 or 8 then once the update is complete you can ignore win.old except for when you need space later on it only uses this folder to recover you back to the win 7 or 8. BUT once the update is complete then you must go into command prompt (admin) (right click on the start button) and once in the DOS box type 'SFC /SCANNOW' because the update breaks a few files, just let it run to its conclusion, and the system should have far less faults.

    Also turn on system protection, System Protection (formerly System Restore) is turned off by default in Windows 10. Given that there’s no way to opt out of Windows Updates once the operating system is installed, this creates a potential problem if a future update is found to contain a serious bug. This is unlikely, but not impossible.

    So it’s a good idea to re-enable System Protection so that you can undo a future Windows Update if you need to. Open an Explorer window, right-click This PC and choose Properties. When the window opens, select System Protection in the left pane, then select your C: drive in the dialog box that opens, click the Configure button and select the Turn on system protection option.

    Hope that helps

    Most all of the technical stuff flew over my head I must say how pleased I was during the week when my grandson spent time from Sydney with my machine a Lenovo ( he is in IT as a Lenovospecialist). Only took him a short time pronounced it clean and advised me not to venture into 10 at this time.

    I don't normally get dragged into public comments about any software other than to say it's crap or good.
    When I give help it is done privately, for two reasons, one/ because everyone is an expert or had an expert look at it especially when it comes to M$ and Windows
    Two/ You will get so many conflicting arguments you will end up chasing in ever decreasing init? And we all know where that ends up.

    I have already said in another thread that the latest ISO is a complete install and you can register with your win 7 or 8 key.
    If you are not using Build 10586.104 Version 1511 then you do not have the latest build. There is no update to it yet.

    IE is in win 10 and always has been, Edge is an experimental browser as is Spartan, M$ have not made a decision on which they will continue with if any.
    Like Google has OK Google M$ has Cordona simply shout "hey Cordona at your confuser and it will do the same as OK Google provided you have not switched it off like me init?
    Shout "hey Cordona start internet explorer" and it will, however as from 12 January 2016 IE11 is on basic and limited support with no security updates and no further updates planned.

    Win 10 is Vista the same as 7 & 8 / 8.1, nothing has been taken away but much has been moved or added.
    As such the dos program System file checker (SFC.exe) referred to above is old, unreliable and not currently recommended for use with win10, it only checks the system files and faults can lie elsewhere.

    I hate to admit it but windows 10 is reliable and stable build on Vista technology, if you are having issues with deleted programs it will be because they were not installed correctly or not installed to the windows program files.
    If you are having install issues from a Microsoft ISO it is because you have not prepared the install media correctly or not downloaded it fully.

    Log in to web pages and forums is not a O/S issue it is a browser issue, the only way the operating system will interfere is if you or your expert has been tempering with things they know little about.
    I recommend a fresh install of win 10 from the latest ISO, partition the Hdd and install to a fresh new partition, ion other words follow the on screen instructions and on't tamper with it.
    A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open.

    @Pierre Thanks for that Pierre, I think I will stick with my Linux machines until such times as my grandson comes to use his machine.
    @Grump Thanks Grump I have the ISO and it will be used at the appropriate time. It could be a case of a little knowledge being a dangerous thing. My original problem was a browser issue, I had ticked NOT to remember password etc. which meant entering details every time I came on here.
