A final good bye to Windows


Recommended Posts

did it ever occur to you that the problem might be because of a driver, written by the manufacturer of that certain piece of hardware??? maybe its a bug that only happens in your hardware configuration. and you didnt even provide details of what your problem is. maybe it really is you, you're doing something thats messing it all up, but because of your arrogance, it cant be your fault.

go ahead,go to linux. why do people always write these posts like it is some kind of threat? do you want us to beg you to use windows? whats the point of your post really? you even said what you think the outcome is going to be.

Where the Hell did that come from? I have a Technet sub.

Thats illegal. Its for testing only. Some tech net software is not full featured either. Look up technet/ add features windows 8

So why are you blaming windows because you refuse to use retail software?

Ignore the brand name monster cable recommendation, but get a better RJ45 cable and see if that fixes the issues.

Since you run Linux on the same hardware w/o any issue, I think the issue maybe with the drivers you have. Also, when the trouble starts, you should look at the Task Manager to see which processes using the most memory and CPU.

No, it absolutely has to be Monster Cable unless you use an Apple Lightning Connector to RJ45 adapter and run it through a dongle.

lol i think we have a loose cannon on our hands. if he snapped with probably a simple problem with windows, image what he'll do if he has to compile a something on linux.

While I think that this is a stupid thread, what in the **** are you talking about?

The only "feature" that you can add to Win 8 is Media Center.

Sounds like your system has issues.

I've been using the same system for 3+ years now. I've only upgraded the memory and graphics card. Haven't had any blue screens or issues to speak of. Then again, I only install quality components and use software I trust.

You do realize that since running Linux I have not had to compile anything ... other than the few times that I decided I wanted to learn how to do it.

Most things these days either are in the CLICKABLE REPOSITORY or have a CLICKABLE INSTALLER (other than having to put a password in it is just like windows )

I think he's confusing retail and VL images. Different subscriptions have access to different versions.

VL doesn't allow you to add MC.

Not sure what's sadder here, the OP who can't admit that all his "tweaking" of Windows is the real problem or the yahoo who made the retarded claim that Linux caused his hardware to fry, for the record there's nothing you can do in software that could damage hardware, nothing

Some people like me are using retail discs with retail keys from tech net yet there is no add features for the media center key.

All people have to do is look on the technet forums

What about a bad bios flash from inside windows?

Get a Monster Cable brand Ethernet cable and all your problems will go away. I had the same problem with an AMD chip using standard ethernet cable. It has something to do with the positrons hitting the bus at too high a rate getting conjamburated by the AMD's processing method that concatenates the data and ends up freezing under Windows because of the things.

I love you

I also know by posting this, the fanboys are going to come out and bash the **** out of me.
This forum doesn't need more flamewars. Why do you willingly spawn one? Your post has no content that can be discussed objectively. Why is this kind of thread not closed right away, I'll never know.

Then it's not retail Pro.

MSDN has the same retail Pro and features can be added.

Now several people have VLK licenses and those do not have the ability to do MC.

I'm sure you're either lying or doing something completely wrong.

I bought all my machines from tigerdirect and bb and they all work fine. Just one crash on one of them in 2 years.

Just another ill informed computer user. . .this must be one of those average joes that has no idea what a computer is. . . :rolleyes:

However frustrated you are, try this. After all, what do you have to lose?

1. Set your BIOS to "BIOS Defaults", rather than "Performance Defaults".

2. Wipe your primary HDD.

3. Install Windows.

4. Do NOT install ANY third party software whatever.

5. Go to the Device Manager and check your ethernet adapter to see if it is functional.

6. If it is, enable automatic updates.

7. If it isn't, install the driver that came with your system, or go to another PC and download it from the manufacturer's site.

8. Once you have Internet access, restart your computer.

9. Leave the computer running like this for about 2 days (or about as long as you previously did until it started giving errors).

If after this period, you do not run into problems, install your other software one by one, with some normal usage between each install. This will help you pinpoint the cause of your problems.

This is all I can do to help, without being there.

I guess you were born with all your IT knowledge.

What a crass attitude.

I won't comment too much...but evidently you haven't seen some of the prior threads by the OP. I'll say nicely (and Lakota please don't take this as an attack, I'm commenting so that this particular poster can understand) that there is a certain resistance to trying troubleshooting and in taking advice as it is offered.

Now this situation has gotten somewhat better, and I wish Lakota lived nearby since I'd love to look at that PC and see just what in the heck is going on.

      HI,

      Hope there are still some Surface2 (RT)  Win8 users around, as I still use mine almost daily besides my S3.

      The tablet ran the latest 04-2018 security update yesterday, but it messed up all my installed apps. Almost all of them refused to start and got stuck on the start/icon screen.
      It doesn't really matters if it's MS native apps or 3rd party ones.
      After some fiddling I got some of them to start again, by starting/closing them frequently, but are dog slow atm.

      While this was all happening, CPU and harddrive usage was over 60-70%%, as if Windows was still doing stuff. Even after multiple reboots/shutdowns.

      Also, the apps that refuse to start (for now) are apps that are not in the Store anymore. Coincidence?
      Does this sound familiar to someone, or did I just got a bad update experience?

      cheers!

      So here's some insight, I have to install Windows 7 in an old machine since that's what my friend prefers. Given the myriad of updates there are for that OS right now I was wondering what would be the quickest route to a fully updated system, in essence, installing the less updates possible.
       
      So far, starting from the refreshed image of SP1 I've done the following:
      - KB3004394: For the updated root certificates.
      - KB3020369: April 2015 Servicing Stack updated (+ the current version of the Windows Update agent).
      - KB2729094, KB2731771, KB2533623, KB2670838, KB2786081, KB2834140, KB2639308, KB2888049 & KB2882822: Pre-requisites for IE 11.
      - IE 11.
      - KB2685811 & KB2685813: For the 1.11 model drivers, not that it would matter for this system I think.
      - KB3125574: The convenience roll-up, brings things up to April 2016.
      - .NET 4.7.1.
       
      After that Windows Update is still showing my some 41 updates, some of which I think supersede others? (look at the top of the list of the capture I attached); so I'm thinking maybe installing one of those roll-ups would do the trick.
       
      I remember reading about Windows 7 going the way of cumulative updates of some sort and since there are some sysadmins among the members (although hopefully not making W7 large scale deployments already) I was wondering if there was a way of cutting the list down to less updates, or a best practices approach so to speak. There may already be some redundancy on what I did for now, but the default state was horrendous (150+ updates) and it's a 5400k RPM hard drive...
       
      Anyway, thanks for the read, any input is well received and appreciated. I'll edit the post tomorrow (6:42am here :S) with download links over those KBs in case somebody comes across this post and finds it useful.

      Hi All,
       
      I am trying to mend my parents in law's computer. It's a Lenovo with Windows 8. The computer is extremely slow - loading up the computer you need at least two attempts - the first attempt you get a blue screen. Using the PC I've encountered that the computer is extremely slow - mouse stops when you are moving it etc...
       
      I've run a disk cleanup and then also a virus run. These did not make a big difference.
       
      Does anyone have any further ideas on how to remedy this problem? Would prefer not to reboot the entire machine as I have lost the Office 2010 code.

      Hello guys, whats up.
      I am in a desperate need of some professional solution from you. You see i have Win7 Ultimate (x32bit) edition installed in my PC.
      My machine came pre-installed with Win XP at first. I got a DVD from one of my friend and it was a Win 7 (x32bit) edition Starter Disc.
      Please see the image.

       
      I had made an image of Win 7 Ultimate (After inserting Anytime Upgrade Key from Starter to Ultimate) by the default Win7 Backup and Restore function.
      I have at least two image (Pretty useless because they already have this indexing problem) .
      But again recently that copy of Win 7 Ultimate went bad due to severe indexing problem due to enabling Hibernate function. I had to perform a lot of
      "chkdsk" function to set it right. Lets be plain and simple, my pc began to have errors, it became so bad that it showed continued BSOD (Blue Screen).
      So with the fear of it showing some sector problems. I had to reformat and install Win 7 again from Starter to Ultimate.
      Its really f****d up thing i have to do again and again. I am getting tired and old of these things.
      Really! i am getting old for these kind of things. But somewhere here in this post (This is the post) i saw the Activation Settings can be backed up.
      So i took time to search few tools like:
      ABR (Activation Backup and Restore) Website Advanced Tokens Manager 3.5 RC5 Website
      But these tools work on machine that came out of factory that has OEM license.
      I tried the first tool, it didn't work. It couldn't activate Win 7 and the second tool ask to install .Net Framework 4.0.30319.
      (Let me tell you i do not have a Activation key for Win7 Ultimate; that friend installed it once and his number count has expired too.)
      Which doesn't want to be installed in my PC. It says, "It cannot be installed in this version of Windows". Again pretty useless.
      Mine version of Win 7 ( if installed from a Disc will naturally fall on Retail version; Yes)
      I could restore those old image and backup those Win 7 Ultimate Activation Settings and apply it on the fresh copy of Win 7. Yes.
      So theoretically its possible but i am having difficulties finding those tools.
      What i want is, is there a possibility for me to do this.
       
      Awaiting your reply. I have only 3 more days to Activate again. I can again restore the image and do this again and again as i am not
      in hurry. But i am also not particularly fond of doing this again and again.
      Any suggestion would be of great help to me.
      I do not know if it can be done. Have you faced such situation.

      I've had Win 7 installed for a long time and it's setup just the way I want, with lots of programs, shortcuts, etc. and I'd rather not mess it up. But I heard the Win 10 accessibility upgrade offer was ending soon, so I'd like to claim my license before I lose the opportunity.

      Is there any way to install Win 10 without affecting my Win 7 install? Like if I disconnect the Win 7 drive and install 10 on a fresh one or something? If I put my Win 7 key into the Win 10 installer, does the 7 license get revoked or will it continue to work?
       
      Thanks for any help
