Interesting, thanks Shawn.
Thanks - it was just a thought. Oh well, back to the proverbial drawing board !
Shawn, do you happen to know how often Windows checks for Store/App updates? (Trying to solve a mystery over at McAfee forums regarding a mysterious every 3 hours loss of focus (from Games I'm...
Windows 10 is being released on July 29, 2015 according to article today at USA Today.
Windows 10 to arrive July 29 Internet Explorer is not part of the Release. (Replaced by "Edge")....
No, it means it will be offered to you that's all. Nothing is forcing you to upgrade. Those updates are merely to give Windows Update the ability to offer a system upgrade. That's something that...
Delete Doctor and programs like that remove more than they say they will remove. Never trust them.
Check if any hardware is attached that may be interfering with the boot process, also make sure...
First thing to do is stop using registry cleaners such as Delete Doctor as all they do is mess the system up.
The second thing to try is System Restore to see if you can go back to before all this...
I believe this is the update that allows WU to offer Win 10 when the time comes. My Win 8.1 has it since April,1 but I have yet to see it offered in either of my Win 7 SP1's.
Thanks, I'll keep digging...LOL
Shawn, Do you know of any way of getting the Windows 7-style look for the sign-in screen user picture frame, rather than having that plain square ?
Seen here for comparison, 8/8.1 first:
Here's another one labelled Windows OEM Product Key Tool and works for 7, 8.x and 10.

It has just finished, thank God LOL
I'm running an extended disk cleanup for the first time ever on mine and it's hung at cleaning Windows Update files for around 2 hours now, but according to Task Manager is still running without...
Thanks. Obviously I need to practice...!
I've been using it for a couple of years now with no bad things happening. :)

Yes, I took your recommendation and downloaded...
McAfee SiteAdvisor labels PostImage download as possibly dangerous. The software writer perhaps needs to use a different downloader than Softpedia.
Let's put this discussion to rest folks. The content.ie5 folder exists in all Windows OS's and is the place that IE (any version) stores its temporary files. There's nothing suspicious or evil or...
It's not IE5 - it's merely named that, those files appear in everyone's machine no matter what OS it is. I strongly advise against cleaning the registry in the manner suggested.
Things could be worse. At least here one can express an opinion. A certain Digital Forum based in Canada banned me for life because I had the "temerity" to disagree with the forum owner on a small...
This is over a year old - I'm sure it was solved ages ago.
BTW Origin PC is run by the guys and girls that quit Alienware when Dell took them over, or were made redundant at that time, so there's a lot of talent there.
Well I've never fancied my chances as a PC builder so they would suit me fine....if I could afford another monster machine. I'm trying to make my Alienware x58 last by individually upgrading parts...
