Another unnessesary change in Win 10!

#1 Post by ian16th » Mon Sep 16, 2019 10:13 am

I recently had a SSD die on me. :-q

It was of course my boot drive, so I have reverted back to a HDD and re-installed Win/10.

I had a back up, but it was of course not as up to date as it should have been, but it wasn't a crises. Most of my data is on other drives anyway.

Of course installing Win/10 from the CD meant updating to the latest level. This was done and the installation of applications commenced.

Restoring my Thunderbird Profile was a challenge! But I fixed things by renaming a directory from kwktiggi.default to 4h45ntq5.default-release!

After installing Ifanview, I discovered that I could not change the file associations of JPG files, by right clicking on the properties tab! I had to go into Control Panel to do the change.

Bah Humbug.

And yet another convenient change.

Rebooted and up pops the offer of setting a PIN to log in. No, perfectly happy with my password. I select No. Up pops a window requiring me to log in again. I do. Up pops another window for Pin and Reenter Pin. I don't and click next. Up pops another window You Must Enter a Pin. FFS.

Once in it proudly displays a new desktop picture set Up.

FFS I just want to get in to MY COMPUTER.

That’s why I don’t do W10 updates, and on the rare occasion I do it’s done in the presence of a rated guru who can um...unsex any sexups.

Good move. Try as I can to de-bing the damn thing it insists on de-googling itself.

Just noticed the very latest 'emergency' update to 1909 (KB4551762) restricts install to Windows Store programmes only. Why!!? Thank M$.

Luckily that has been sorted!
