    I know this is slightly off-topic, but I am not sure where else to ask. I have re-installed Windows 8.1, installed .net framework 3.5 using Phoenix's offline method, worked perfect, WSUS offline for all my updates, I have all updates to march 2018. There is however a April 2018 update I downloaded from Microsoft Catalog for win 8.1 x64, is there anyway to install it without turning on automatic updates? (I have it set to never check for updates so I don't get the DRM error for having a CPU that is no longer supported on the old OS's) :)

    @Papusan @Vasudev Answer me before the firebird gets mad at me for off-topic posting, and I will edit it to say Win 10 is great thanks for all the fixes mate! shhhh he will never know, hurry!

    side note: my cinebench, Final Fantasy XV benchmark, time spy, and firestrike scores all gained about 5-8% in scores going form win 10 to win 8.1, my m.2 is scoring faster as well. Win 10 is a mess, I am never going back.

    I always turn on Windows Update service in services.msc before updating.
    After cleanup I disable BITS and WU.

    How do I disable the white single pixel which is a part of the hidden moron task-bar at bottom-right corner screen?
    30 minutes Google says that it is permanent=no way. I have black background an it really looks like dead pixel which is not dead 'yet' (OLED)

    What if we turned off Windows Firewall with Windows defender ..... I am trying out the recommended Eset security, which has a firewall ... Does this tweak still work or no? If no, how can I make it work lol :p Thank you for all your hard work. :vbthumbsup:

    Can u suggest an alternative method? :(


    Or Looks like I can turn off ESET firewall and turn on windows firewall setting... but with defender off i cannot view the rules in windows firewall... hhmmm :wideeyed:

    ESET does say that it will Also evaluate rules from windows firewall when using ESET firewall... I wonder .....

    I was confused too, I copied his post and made a .txt file and placed it in the etc folder, then, I slapped my forehead and was like nope... he meant, download the file, and replace the hosts file with his hosts file, lol

    all good now. :D


    can anyone confirm if ShutUpTen works ok still? or should we wait for them to update that program for 1803?
