    Crazy, isn't it? Probably some kind of weird glitch, which Windows 10 is famous for.

    I am dealing with some Windows weirdness on the Tongfang turdbook that I have yet to figure out. The system tray power icon keeps disappearing and the common fixes for it don't fix it. Restarting explorer brings it back, but is it gone again after a reboot. Tried all of the registry tweaks on the web... nada.

    And, yesterday about a half dozen desktop shortcuts to programs I use every day suddenly were broken on my desktop PC. The programs were fine and I made new shortcuts. But, makes no sense that they were messed up. Don't know how/why.

    Logging into Windows with the built-in Administrator account the problem is not present, my profile for work it is not present and a new user it is not prsent. So, I am going to restore my Macrium Reflect image from 12 days ago and be done with it. I'll have to double-check that everything is locked down so no digital cancer can interfere a second time.

    I am so glad that I made a new image after converting my drives back to MBR from GPT. Otherwise, I'd be having to redo that crap. My older images are all UEFI/GPT and it would suck having to go back to that garbage.

    Ever since this Windows 10 mess came out until now all we've been dealing with is weird unsolvable problems, constant need of finding tweaks to battle Micro$h4ft, driver incompatibilities, you name it! I have given up gaming on a PC just to not touch something called Windows ever again. Heck if you're comfortable with Linux now, I wouldn't even burn any more calories on Windows

    If Linux could do everything I want to do, I would do that in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, it cannot and it probably never will. Windows 10 is a piece of garbage and Linux is awesome. But, there's no joy in using an OS that limits what I can do so severely. It's actually not the OS, technically. But, the lack of availability of the software I want to run... 80% or more only runs on Windows. Therein lies the problem. And, if I can't do what I want to do, there is really no point in even owning a computer.

    If I wanted someone else to control everything I do, I'd just use a cheap tablet, Chromebook or smartphone for internet and email and totally forget about everything else.

    While we wait on Spring 2020 update...

    Windows 10 V1909: More issues and Explorer Bugs

    It looks like the Explorer in the Windows 10 November 2019 Update (Version 1909) is becoming a ‘problem child’ due to bugs. There are also more bugs and annoyances in Windows 10 version 1909. Here is a short summary of what I just noticed.

    MS should scrap the whole Windows 10 project, and start from scratch. To take something great (7) and transform it into such a pile of steaming crap, shows what a complete waste they have become.

    I don’t see any acknowledgment of — much less a solution to — the longstanding File Explorer search bug in Win10 1909.
    January 2020 Patch Tuesday running commentary, from the skeptic’s corner Askwoody.com| Today
    Be sure you can rollback or wait for the guinea pig.

    Windows 10 is 'better than ever' says Microsoft, as it issues a patch to fix a major vulnerability betanews.com Jan 14, 2019

    [​IMG]
    Today, as you’ll know, marks the end of support for Windows 7, and Microsoft is -- predictably -- keen to get as many people as possible to switch to its new operating system.

    However, on a day when the software giant has had to issue a fix for a flaw in Windows 10 that the NSA says threatens the foundations on which the Internet operates, there’s something more than a little embarrassing about Microsoft boasting how its new OS "makes you and your organization more productive and secure than ever".

    But today’s events have somewhat undermined Microsoft’s boast about the security and safety of Windows 10 given that the flaw identified by the NSA -- which it describes as posing "a significant risk for enterprises and systems" -- doesn’t actually affect Windows 7.


    NSA: Windows 10 flaw threatens the foundations on which the Internet operates beatanews.com Jan 14, 2019

    Earlier today we wrote about a major vulnerability affecting Windows 10 and Server 2016 which was uncovered by the NSA who duly reported it to Microsoft.

    At the time details on the vulnerability were scarce, but now that Microsoft has issued a fix for it as part of its Patch Tuesday updates, the NSA has revealed its worrying findings.

    They don't give a rat's butt about anything other than getting Windows 7 hold-outs to drink the wee-wee tainted Windoze OS X Kool-Aid. Security, my hind leg. I might have been born at night, but it wasn't last night. As long as their goal is to provide Windows as a Service it will never be secure. It will continue to be a constantly evolving and insecure bug magnet.
    The only meaningful thing I can say in response to this fabrication is, "Liar, liar, pants on fire."

    Suck on this bro Fox. From link above... "But today’s events have somewhat undermined Microsoft’s boast about the security and safety of Windows 10 given that the flaw identified by the NSA -- which it describes as posing "a significant risk for enterprises and systems" -- doesn’t actually affect Windows 7."
