RE: Windows 10 updates playing havoc on computers

I have updated a W/8.1 Acer computer to W/10 back in September and have no problems! I bought a tablet that has W/10 and no problems. Quite pleased with it, especially over 8.1. Have an old Dell that is not qualified for an upgrade, downloaded the GXW Control Panel and shut off the upgrade. It has W/7 Pro and will leave it unless Dell makes it compatible before the 07/31/16 freebie!

RE: Windows 10 Downloaded by Itself????

In Win 8.1 that I use, every so often there is a pop-up to advise that important system updates are available - and I usually go ahead and do the updates. But once, I noticed that Win 10 was loading!! I aborted the update and started tracking to find out why. ' Lo and behold, all of the 'important' updates were for my Win 8.1 - BUT on a different pages are the 'optional' updates and there was WIN 10 - checked and ready to load. So now, every time I get ready to accept updates to Win 8.1, I go to the 'optional' page and uncheck the WIN 10 load. Just one more MS PITA!!! GWX Control panel will take care of it not loading. Download then follow the instructions. Worked great on this old Dell W/7 Pro which is not supported per Dell Website!

RE: Warning windows 10 automaticly installs!!!

If you want to stop it, download the GWX control panel and follow the instructions. Stopped dead on this old Win/7 PRo machine which doesn't have any support from Dell.

RE: DW's laptop DEAD DEAD DEAD then alive?

My old 2005 Dell 12" notebook did that just yesterday on a restart. Screen went black but the idiot light stayed on. I left it set and 15 minutes later it resumed reading that it had updated. And i have Windows/7 Update set to manual updates! It is working ok again.

RE: Cheap Windows tablet

I have an older Dell 12" with a core i3 processor and 250 GB HD. I had a nice Samsung 7" tablet and bumped the table. It fell on a carpeted floor never hurt the screen; but scrambled everything so you could not see anything! I will stick with the old Dell; My Acer 15.6" with upgrade from 8.1 to W/10 and an older Gateway NE -522 with 8gb ram and 1 TB HD with Linux 17.3. They keep me busy!

RE: Cellular phone Coverage

I have AT&T coverage with Cricket for my SmartButt phone. Coverage seems to be quite well except in remote non-populated areas such as: The Adirondack Park of NYS; Idaho. I drove 550 miles in 11 hrs. including stops in one day to get to a certain state park with my 28' Class-C. Never again as my legs felt like rubber and I almost fell out upon exiting and it took 3 days to recover! LOL! Had Net10 for many years; but their customer service was horrible with all the foreign languages their reps had. I have been fighting an automatically deduction of $2.49 for almost two yrs. now. The rep acts like they don't understand and my bank is in another state. Have to wait until I go back there again to put a stop on their auto withdrawal.

RE: Internet Browser Change??

I have been using the Opera browser for about two months now it doesn't track you. Click on the Opera circle in the upper left corner of the page for the menus and settings! So simple a caveman can do it!!!

RE: Disqualified from work because of your rig?

I could see a problem with being to long to fit in a site; mostly older state parks or Forestry services; but not to short!! Back to the OP ???. Send them a picture and ask many questions! Only had a problem one time when I drove 1100 miles and they had changed management of the campground.I parked at a few box stores and stayed overnight and used the web to locate another place in the area! Once out of about a dozen places I work camped for!

I like it when they pass on the left and do a hard right; hit the brakes hard to exit off to the right!! Not! I will not slam on my brakes; hit the horn;flash the light and scare the bejesus out of them! ROTFL!
