    Solved How do I unlicense my Windows 8.1 with media center

    I have 2 systems which dual boot Windows 8.1 with Media Center and Windows 7 Ultimate. I want to unlicense the media center licence on both 8.1 OS and then remove the licenses for my 8.1 Pro so I can use them again at a later date. All 4 licences are retail. I will then install a copy of 7 Pro...

    If you remember A&E TV used to carry Pop goes the 4th and then the network was acquired by someone else and coverage stopped. You can find coverage from Boston here on a live stream in HD. July 4th

    Cortana finally gives weather in Celsius based on weather

    The QUESTION should be why is the USA still using Fahrenheit temperature measurement? The USA got independence from the UK in 1776 yet still clings to an archaic measurements which are essentially the Old British Imperial System with a few tweaks here and there.

    New February 2015 Updates for Windows Available

    Just a FYI (KB3001652) Update to Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office runtime seems to be stuck doing nothing for 30 mins on 3 of my machines. May want to skip that update and install it separately. One of the machine is a Windows 8.1 computer.

    Optional Update KB3000850

    I have 8.1 Pro Media Center on 2 PC's dual booting with 7 Ultimate and on those machines 2x 8.1 Pro Virtual machines. I use (d) Avast on them all except on VM which is using MS Windows Defender. All of them seemed to update fine except for a large amount of house keeping for several hours after...

    Optional Update KB3000850

    I think most if not all of the issues are with the disk crunching that is going on after the install. On my system with a 8 core FX 8350 it is running at a constant 25% CPU usage which would make a large number of dual core systems slow. Often after updates Windows will do some housekeeping and...

    Netflix to attempt to block VPN even for SUBSCRIBERS

    OK while watching TOTP 2 from the past I logged into Netflix and it knows who I am and gave me this ? I was hoping for some British Telly instead of all the Yankee stuff.

    Netflix to attempt to block VPN even for SUBSCRIBERS

    I never knew that and I have been a user of Netflix since it used to come in the DVD player box (14 years). So you mean I can log in over in Blighty and watch my whacky British shows? I'll have to try this right now,

    So I suppose you must subscribe to Mexican Netflix. What is that about 2 GBP per month?

    Netflix to attempt to block VPN even for SUBSCRIBERS

    Mexican Netflix? Never knew about that. We have Netflix and Amazon Prime. We have also been using unblock us for a couple of years to get my British TV that is not on US PBS (most of it). What ever the content providers block there will always be a way around it somehow even if it means my...

    Windows 'Threshold' tech preview around late September

    I hope we get a "Windows 7 Mode" installed on my powerful desktop machines and I never have to see any of the "Metro nonsense again". For netbooks, tablets a "metro mode" so I never have to look at that desktop nonsense. For laptops you get to choose. This is the OS that will have options to...

    Cortana integration in Windows 'Threshold' looking likely

    I use at least one of my machines to play music. I hope I can at least disable this feature. For me this would be annoying. Lets hope MS give us plenty of options so we can pick and choose features.

    Solved Windows 8.1 using 16gb's of RAM on nothing

    OK couple of possibilities. You are full of malware or a virus and you should enable superfetch as that is exactly the problem I was mentioning. Download https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/ trial and scan your system. What antivirus do you have and what other "Tweaks" have you done to the...

    Solved Windows 8.1 using 16gb's of RAM on nothing

    Hi Moldypoato and Welcome the Eight Forums We have had this discussion so many times. Modern OS from Vista onward use all the ram to load the os and everything possible into it. Why have ram and have it empty when it is the fastest method of loading and unloading data. Superfetch loads stuff...

    August updates for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

    So what I read from this is a minor bug fix for issues and the rumours and speculation turned out to be false. I think M$ have pulled a fast one and changed their plans and are putting all efforts into the next version of Windows. We heard the Start Menu would be back, then not. The start menu...
