    You make a fresh install and with Pinguy your Windows share problem will be fix, I can even go on the share of my domain without change anything in Pinguy.
    I'm prepared!!!

    Here is something for you kiddys to chew on, right now ANY Windows installed PC has a backdoor on it, that YOUR local Government, of policing agencies can gain access to EVERYTHING that you have, or had ever put on that particular machine(s). Don't believe me?
    Google a program called "cofee" Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and READ what it can DO! If you think because your an American, Chinese, Russian citizen(s) your safe? THINK AGAIN!!! Notice the "O" portion!

    That's something that as to be plug on the Computer USB port, I don't care about it as I have nothing to hide and they need a search warren to come in my house. But that's another reason to not trust Microsoft to store our data online, we have to say no to theirproject of cloud terminal pc

    Yeah I downloaded that years ago and messed about with it. It is not a significant concern. As Area 66 says, it's not something they can remotely use to go on your pc.

    For someone to have a backdoor into your machine(s), they need to circumvent your router's security.

    It doesn't do anything that someone that knows Windows inside and out can't do without it. It's just a bunch of programs/scripts ran automatically for a non-techie type that can get the info and be like "wow, I am good" when it really isn't needed to begin with.

    I suppose it makes life easier for a non-tech authority type. It's available on ****************.

    Hi,

    That too is on MS wish list. So they can freeze your machine should you run an illegal copy of their SW.

    You'd be surprised what governments can do if they want to....

    Lot of info in there if you use hybrid boot.

    • To be forced to use icons for a start menu instead of an alphabetically listed cascading menu is cumbersome and ludicrous ... a backward step. I've got 7 full windows of icons already! One program, Studio Manager has 49 sub-menu icons!
    • And I can't right click an icon in the start menu and send to desktop as a shortcut.
    • Nor can I easily log off/on from the start orb to clear deleted cookies when running a program like CleanUp. I have to go back to metro to log off. And to log back on, lift the picture covering my user name, then back to metro, and finally desktop. That's three clicks the old way, versus six clicks the new way ... and that's progress! Hah!
    • Then there are the power off, sleep, hibernate options in the start orb. And the list goes on!

    To say something is not that inconvenient when it is an extra step or two that wasn't there before in earlier versions, is like saying backward steps and more inconvenience is OK. Get real! Is this a real user or a politician trying to sell us a line!

    The thing is, why are Microsoft forcing us to go through metro? Keep it by all means, but put in an option to by-pass it and boot straight to desktop; and also put in a start menu and orb. How hard is that? Then everyone's happy.
    "To be forced to use icons for a start menu.." If you have hundreds of programs you actually use I can see where this is a problem. There is a Windows 7 add-in that will give you the original start button and menu. If you aren't actually using those hundreds of programs simply un-pin those that aren't of interest, they are still available on the Apps screen.

    "And I can't right click an icon..." Well actually you can it just requires some extra clicks. Once you have everything set up then a few extra clicks for adding the next icon is no big deal. Right click on the start tile, at the bottom of the screen click on Open File Location, copy the shortcut of interest to the desktop,... done!

    "Nor can I easily log off/on... and There there are the power off..." Use Gibson's Wizmo GRC | WIZMO - Steve's Windows Gizmo Nice icons for one-click functions. You can place them on the desktop and/or in the Start screen.
