    Well my Windows is randomly restarting after it's been idle for a long time, so I'm one of those users in that pie chart I guess! I've tried dialing down CPU & RAM overclocks for over the past few weeks (because the random restarts may only happen once a week or so), but it's not hardware overclock related it seems. Event Viewer is telling me:
    "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000001e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0x0000166000000000, 0x0000000000000008, 0x0000166000000000)."

    This only started happening since Windows version 1803 (if I remember rightly). I may try a clean install at some point, mine was just an update rather than clean install. I also wonder if it might be the Spectre-protected microcode that was included as one of the Window Updates - apparently microcode version C2 was withdrawn for a time because of concerns over random reboots on Skylake architecture, but apparently microcode C2 was later reinstated due to them finding out the reboots were not caused by the microcode - well maybe they are!

    • Ahaha! Something is telling me that was backup image recovery of some sort than true update from old to new build.

    Try disabling Spectre protection using inspectre and see if that fixes the issue.

    Yes, that's one way to do it, I might instead uninstall the microcode patch (distributed through Windows), so that it reverts to the previous latest microcode before Spectre protection (my motherboard related microcode). That could be one thing I could test, but results will take a couple/few weeks to come in because of the fairly rare sporadic nature of the bug. Any changes I make have to be tested for a week or two to see the effect. I'll report back with any of my findings.

    Microsoft Is Showing Inline Ads in their Windows 10 Mail App Message List
    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ne...ds-in-their-windows-10-mail-app-message-list/

    Can this garbage OS get any worse?

    After setting up a new windows 10 install for my parents I wanted to give them a easy to use "classic" style email program.
    Nope. I wouldn't recommend the mail app to anyone. It doesn't even include basic security features such as remote image blocking. I ended up going with Thunderbird. Easy to use, and receives security updates.

    I decided to update to 1803 release, but i also noticed a new issue, my CPU doesn't scale down below its maximum frequency rate when i'm using the Balanced power plan, but if i change to High Perfomance and then back to Balanced, it's fixed. Has anyone had this issue?

    Reverted to older Macrium Reflect backup(build 112) since new build 165 wrecked my SSD boot time and was slow overall.
