    Prevent "Unsupported Hardware

    Windows 7 will be supported until 2020... Unless you want new hardware, then suck it. I have people in their 70's and 80's that want Windows 7, so now I'll have to find previous generation hardware. Remove KB4015549 and KB4015546 to get around it until MS pushes another patch to get in the way.

    Microsoft Warns Windows 7 Has Serious Problems

    Oversimplify much? I got a $100k machine that pounds dirt that only works with XP. Should I tell the boss to just throw it away? :rolleyes:

    Mozilla Quietly Deploys Built-In Firefox Advertising

    That would seem unlikely. The tiles can be useful, less clicking than using bookmarks.

    Mozilla Quietly Deploys Built-In Firefox Advertising

    Anything that can be monetized will be eventually. Google as a whole has been very good at doing it very slowly and fairly unobtrusively, giving away much for free and integrating themselves into our daily lives. When it gets to the point where people no longer look at alternative options, where...

    Mozilla Quietly Deploys Built-In Firefox Advertising

    Which Mozilla will probably reset on a regular basis unless updates are disabled.

    Mozilla Quietly Deploys Built-In Firefox Advertising

    Jeez. I'm the computer guy, I've told people for years to use Firefox and Adblock Plus to not have to see ads, now Mozilla has gone and made me a liar.

    Windows 10 Installed 75M Times In One Month

    Just got a call from a client asking about when his Windows 10 would be ready. He agreed with the nagware to reserve his copy and got an email about being in the queue. I told him I didn't know and was surprised that it didn't happen earlier, as I thought most people that reserved it already...

    Windows 10 Installed 75M Times In One Month

    Might & Magic! Xeen! The Sierra Network on the 1200 baud (I think?) modem. I had a little thumb mouse with a blue ball that could hook onto the side of my T2200 386sx (upgraded with a math co-processor!). Funny how the graphics were so much less but the enjoyment was so much more...

    any IT guys here? Are you upgrading to Win 10?

    I think it was YOU spouting the end of the PC was neigh at hand. The vast majority of PC users never thought the PC was passe, that they needed to start using their phone and/or tablet for all activities. You spout an awful lot of intelligent insight mixed with a huge amount of sheer silliness...

    Windows 7 fails to start after updates installed.

    P.S. Boot up on a stick or disc, system restore, Windows Update and deselect half the updates and try again. If you figure out which update is causing problems let us know.

    This is MS's way of pushing you to W10 ;)

    any IT guys here? Are you upgrading to Win 10?

    I've been happily using 2010 for quite a while both personally and at my businesses. What kind of bugs were you having issues with?

    The grammar of that article appears to have been run through google translate. Top notch reporting :rolleyes:

    any IT guys here? Are you upgrading to Win 10?

    My kids were annoyed with me for upgrading their pc to 10, but I needed at least one machine in the house to play with it. I've since reverted it to 7. I've had only 2 service calls from users that upgraded to 10 needing to revert. Reverting was fairly painless. No plans on rolling out 10 to...
