    windows 10 spring creators update

    Post by britfrog on Tue May 01, 2018 10:26 am

    well i thought I needed a laugh so installed the latest update last night and this morning. As expected M.S. have once again given us what they perceive we cannot do without and diligently ignored what we really need. It is nearly a complete re-write of win 10 leaving a windows.old folder in file mangler . As in all <.S. uprades it is 2 steps forward 1 step back. Having spent over an hour disabling all the spyware that one is able to disable i started to "play" with it, they have removed homegroup, Why? they have installed something else which simplu doesnt work at all well when i try to look into the files of my main p.c. it is a farce. Another thing they have added to the spyware is the ability for your computer to recognise you through the webcam so you no longer need to type in a password, really? was typing 4 letters now beyond most americans? or do we now want to have a photo of you which we can put into the dosier that we have on you? The spyware of this new version is just being unravelled by the public so it is too early to know what else M.S. have installed, I just want to know how much the NSA or US government are paying m.S. to give away their biggest earning package to the great unclean and why? I tried to adjust my personal information on the M.S. site by tapping on their link to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/opt-out only to discover this page is not available, why? Am i no longer allowed to opt out of anything?
    all i can say is, I am very happy to have windows 7 !!

    MS at its best again, I'm sticking with Win 7, I did try Win 10 for less than 24 hours it brought my PC to its knees, what do I keep trying to telling myself, O yes, DON'T FIX WHAT AIN'T BROKE.

    I also ditched win10 and only use win7, but with no updates allowed. That way I never get any problems with windows. I never keep any passwords on my computer so if hackers pay a visit they soon get bored, as I never visit porn sites, (too old now) so they think f*c'k we can not blackmail him...

    Russia is building a separate platform to MS windows, to stop the spyware from the United States of lies and I think I would trust their version more than the MS one.

    I did do a load of the Win 7 "updates" recommended by the so called "experts", over 100 I seem to recall and it just slowed the computer down to a crawl, so I removed them and have no updates ticked like you James and never have problems.

    Windows 10 update installed this morning without problem. All MS spyware that can be turned off now off, took about five minutes. Cleaned up old versions of Win10 on machine and recovered 36GB of disc space, took about five minutes.
    Replaced MS antivirus with ESET and Malwarebytes, (normal state).
    No slowdown noticed on my six year old machine, all Flightsim programmes working normally.

    Maybe spending all the money I did to complete Microsoft training many years ago paid off. That said when this machine dies, assuming it doesn't outlive me, I won't replace it with anything Microsoft.
