    Windows 10 now flags telemetry blocking as a severe security risk windowslatest.com - September 7, 2020

    Telemetry is defined as system data that is uploaded by the Connected User Experience and Telemetry component on Windows 10. The telemetry data includes information about the device, including the hardware CPU, installed memory, storage, and how it’s configured.

    Telemetry is necessary for Windows 10’s development and other companies also rely on telemetry to improve their software. However, some Windows 10 critics see it as a form of “spying” on the part of Microsoft. Just got'a love this wrong statement "Telemetry is necessary for Windows 10’s development". @Mr. Fox

    Windows 10 update breaks another critical feature – but there’s a fix windowslatest.com - September 7, 2020

    All Windows 10 devices ship with a feature called 'sleep mode' where the system simply goes into a low power state and remains that way. After the rollout of September 2020 optional update, users are are reporting that their computer keeps waking up from sleep mode. If it happens to you, there may be a few settings you can tweak to fix the problem... This is payback for all their hard work make the OS more edible for their own power/thermal gimped hardware junk. You see... They try to match Win Power plan settings with own firmware fixes.

    One of the reason Windows 10 will struggle to get total dominance. There are better options out there with less telemetry - spying and no Store connection.

    Windows XP: Not to be killed in 2020 either

    Microsoft's ancient Windows XP operating system, which has long since dropped out of support, continues to run on millions of PCs. That is the result of the new figures from NetmarketShare from August 2020. Here is a brief look at the facts.

    Windows 10 update fixes annoying bug that affects your SSD drives WINDOWSLATEST.COM | Sept 9, 2020

    Microsoft patches the SSD defragger bug in September 2020 update

    With Windows 10 KB4571756 (Build 19041.508), Microsoft has finally resolved the issues with Drive Optimize tool and Windows will stop defragging your SSDs automatically on every reboot.

    Here’s a timeline of how the bug was discovered and acknowledged:

    • Windows Insiders flagged the issue in January 2020.
    • January’s preview Build 19551 resolved the issue.
    • The bug somehow slipped into the final release of May 2020 Update.
    • On August 14, Microsoft told us they’re aware of the reports.
    • Build 19041.488 August optional update fixed the bug in May 2020 Update.
    • Build 19041.508 patches the problem for everyone running May 2020 Update.

    But.... It doesn’t fix the TRIM command running on hard drives. BleepingComputer has details. Hey, it only took Microsoft eight months to fix the defrag bug:rolleyes:

    Unfortunately, Microsoft has not fixed the bug that causes the Optimize Drives feature to perform the TRIM command on non-SSD drives, as shown below.

    Performing TRIM on a non-SSD drive
    There is still no official word from Microsoft regarding the TRIM bug, so we will have to wait on future updates for a resolution.


    AMAZING?:vbbiggrin:

    I just hope they don't screw up this....

    Windows 10 starts bundling servicing stack updates with cumulative updates bleepingcomputers.com | Today

    Microsoft has released quality improvements to the Windows 10 servicing stack, the OS component that enables customers to receive and install Windows updates.

    KB4577266, the latest servicing stack update (SSU) also comes with a change in the way future SSUs will be deployed to Windows 10 devices.

    "Additionally, this update enables a single-package design that incorporates the servicing stack update (SSU) into the latest cumulative update (LCU)," Microsoft explains.

    "Combining the SSU and LCU update into a single package provides a more seamless deployment and installation experience."

    Windows 10 KB4571756 update breaks one of the best features windowslatest.com - September 9, 2020

    Windows 10 users are again experiencing problems after installing the September 2020 cumulative update. The most common issue with the patch is that some users are having trouble running Windows Subsystem for...

    The patch in the question is Windows 10 KB4571756 and it’s causing headaches for certain users who use Windows Subsystem for Linux. The update was released on Tuesday to fix security issues and SSD drive defragger bug in Windows 10.

    The issue seems to affect users on devices running Windows 10 version 20H2 (19042), but it also appears to be hitting some installations of version 2004 (May 2020 Update). Yeah, latest and greatest has to be better.

    Windows 10’s Settings App Is Really Pushing Microsoft Edge howtogeek.com | Sept 8, 2020

    Do you use Edge as your default browser? Why not? You should switch back right now. That’s the message you’ll soon see every time you open Windows 10’s Settings app, courtesy of Microsoft.

    This change is part of Windows 10’s upcoming 21H1 update, which will arrive sometime in Spring 2021. Microsoft says it’s “exploring” including this in Windows, so there’s no guarantee it will make it to the final stable version. However, many Windows Insiders using build 20197 are already seeing it.
