Updates Talk / Re: Windows 10 October 2018 Update Released

Using Disk Cleanup, Storage Sense & BleachBit cleans up all machines, especially old ones, quite well! BleachBit gets rid of Software Distribution files nicely too!  8)
Yes, I was using Ccleaner and after the last issues I switched to Bleachbit. About 4 days I started using PrivaZer. Have to admit I like Privazer out of the three the best.

In my first post I was referring to brand new laptops with solid state drives that had only 32GB in size. I had tried updating to the Windows OS, not the one that was released this month and was not able to get the update without removing software distribution folder. This was back in November of 2017.

I feel sorry for the people who updated to the October Microsoft OS update and lost important documents. I always use True Image before I put anything new on my laptop. Better safe than sorry.

Corrine, I did happen to run across a website while surfing a few days ago that referred to lower end Windows laptops with solid state drives and warned about the latest new update and what needed to be done to make sure you got the update and also posted information before updating. 

Sorry I didn’t mark the page that the post was on and I was a victim last year when I bought two laptops with solid state drives and ran into a problem updating to the latest Windows OS. If you remember we spoke about via private PM.

I sent both the solid state laptops back and paid an extra hundred dollars for each laptop without solid state drives to make sure every time there was a a new Windows OS update that I didn’t have to fix both laptops, one in my possession and the other not which made things difficult for me.

Yes, I found it interesting that Microsoft published the article we both posted on the day of the Windows OS update.

Thanks 🙏 Corrine for your input on this issue.

This is an awesome read and might I add that the same thing happened to my mother and it was a spoofed call using a Microsoft store telephone number. I reported the number to Microsoft. Be very careful and never give out any information unless you call the bank or store, etc.

Malware Removal Tools / Re: Farbar Recovery Scan Tool
« on: September 01, 2018, 05:09:50 am »
Last Updated:    08/30/18 11:25:38 AM EDT

Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, or FRST, is a portable application designed to run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 in normal or safe mode to diagnose malware issues. It is also possible to run FRST in the Windows Recovery Environment in order to diagnose and fix boot issues.

Quote
If you are using Windows XP and have boot issue, the system should boot to the Recovery Environment using a PE Boot CD and then you can run FRST

This program will display detailed information about the Windows Registry loading points, services, driver services, Netsvcs entries, known DLLs, drives, and partition specifications. It will also list some important system files that could be patched by malware.

Note: There are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool available. Please pick the version that matches your operating system's bit type. If you don't know which version matches your system, you may try both of them. Only one of them will run on your system.
