  1. Anyhow, uninstalled them and turned off updates for other M$ products. So that's it. I am done with them. My laptop has a smaller hard drive and don't want to fill it up with unwanted updates that have to be scanned for viruses, defragged, may have issues and may kill my nice running PC.
  2. So maybe I should go buy a boat just in case I ever need to use one then I will have one parked in my driveway. Maybe a hang glider too. Ya never know when you want to go jump off a cliff. Anyhow I don't understand your thinking but there's a lot of things I don't understand about life like people that follow politics. We won't go there though. Anyhow thanks.
  3. So when the Updates come in for Office I was looking at them the other day and it put about 12 updates onto my computer so I don't know what you mean by they will not update Office '07. They just keep loading them on. Do you think I want to take time out of my day to uninstall 12 updates. No I don't. To me it's more things to go wrong. I rarely even use Word. On this computer I'm talking about I don't even have any Word documents on it at all. Do you think I need Access, PowerPoint, Publisher, etc. updates? I just think it's wrong and I wish someone over there at M$ would update their whole idea on how to proceed with this update program.
  4. So I did uninstall everything but Word and I did an update again and again it started to download Junk Mail fixes for Outlook and other stuff that I do not use. So I just went into Update settings and shut off Received updates for other Microsoft products when you update Windows. Shut that bugger right off! Then did an update and they did not come in. What a hassle! Ok, I want to see you put some more ram into that computer of yours too! I remember back in the XP days when someone I met had a map program on his computer and he told me he had a gig of memory on his computer. I thought that was something. 1 GB, wow! What a machine! I have just put and extra 4 GB stick into my 8 GB computer for 12 Gigs now, yes, righteeo says Felix the katt. I just have bags and bags of memory in my drawer. I may of well use it huh?
  5. Yeah, just got the updates on as usual. I take them all. So what I did is to uninstall the ones from Office I did not want. But only a tech would do that. Tell me, when you gonna get a haircut? And why are you triple booting your computer.
  6. Can I drop off my old non-running pickup at your front door?
  7. So maybe we should run over to Microsoft and dump off our dirty underwear just in case they may need a rag or two to clean something. I got some tools in my garage that maybe I can dump off on their doorstop as well. My neighbor has a broken down car that has been sitting there for years. Maybe we should tow it over to Microsoft's parking lot and leave it for them just in case they could use something like that. Microsoft, are you listening?
  8. I am using Office 2007. Yes I can go to Office in Programs in Control panel and remove items I don't want. Anyhow still doesn't answer my question about why I am getting all those updates that I don't have. Can't Updates look at the system and see what I have? Other downloads can look at your system and tell if you have 64 bit and what version of Windows you have so why can't Microsoft Updates be more exact to what my system has on it? Stupid! I don't know if this is a mistake in their system or they are control freaks that think they know what I need. Or don't need but they want to put their footprint on my computer even deeper. Fools!
  9. I only have Word on this computer. Did an Update for all Microsoft products and I got some Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, Publisher, Access, One Note, Script Editor, InfoPath. And what's with this Adobe Flash Player? Isn't that gone now? Anyhow I don't like Microsoft putting all this stuff on my computer for their own stupid reason and filling up my registry with crap I will never use. I don't need this stuff, I hardly even use Word, it's more stuff to go wrong, it's more stuff to scan for when doing a virus scan or defrag. Why is Microsoft setting me up for something I cannot use? Are they just setting themselves up on my computer for their own gain? What's with these guys? There is no place for me to checkmark that I don't want these during an update. They should not be putting more work into my computing like: Me trying to figure out what they are doing, me trying to uninstall these things, and making me do research to see why they are doing these things. Do I go to Microsoft and give them a shovel and rake and say that they need this, so take this even though they don't want it? Is this a control thing? Anyone know the real answer for this? I don't need any shared crap for my office either.
  10. I have two laptops that are working fine with the update. I just had to adjust the touchpad for the task view issue though since I updated that one to V. 2004
  11. Wha, wha wha wha what? ! Tell me, are you a cyborg? Just curious.
  12. The year has nothing to do with this topic. 2004 is a version number that I had an issue with. What does the year 2004 have to do with my issue? Am I missing something?
  13. Wha, wha, what? I read that three times and gave up to figure out what that means.
  14. I did two 2004 updates on 2 Dell Latitudes and they seem to work the same as they did before the update. So all is well with my two Dells, so far. One was maybe 6 years old as well.
  15. I fixed it but turning off scrolling on my touchpad and now it doesn't shrink up the screens I am using for the stupid Task View capability.
  16. I did have one computer that told me I had the update out of 8 Windows 10 computers that I have. I did the update to the 2004 and it is running normal except that it seems to turn on the Task View thingy and shrinks up my opened programs into small windows on the screen. If you know what Task View is then you will know what I mean. For example. I have Word open and Chrome(this is on a laptop). So what happens is that I have Word open and I open up Chrome and my finger moves on the touchpad to the right and Word and Chrome shrinks up to two 3X3" boxes on the left upper side of my screen. I do not have the Task View on my Taskbar because I don't use it and I had removed it. But with this new update the Task View works like it is initiated. It usually shows up on the Task Bar as it's own icon. My icon is not there but the Task View is working it's magic and ignorring if it is on or off. I hope this makes sense. It only happens on the laptop that I updated to 2004. My other computers are not showing me that I can download the update yet. This is very annoying when you are trying to get something done on your computer.
  17. I looked at installed updates and I am getting updates for parts of Office I don't have. I have Office 10 and am getting updates for Visio Viewer, Outlook, One Note and Info Path. I have not put these programs on my Office when I customized. So why would Windows 10 give me these updates. I only installed Word, Excel, Picture Manager and PowerPoint.
  18. Thanks, I do use Defender and Malwarebytes and on some computers I use Superantispyware too. I have 6 computers.
  19. I have it on my PC and I got Office 10. Anyhow it is fixed so far. Wait until Windows 10 gets another monkey up it's a** though.
  20. I did this and think I fixed it. Add an Allowed App through Controlled Folder Access in Windows Defender Security Center. One of things I added was something related to Office called: OIS.exe and then I went to my picture and did an edit and saved it as normal. What a hassel to take a week to figure this out! There is a tutorial here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/113430-add-remove-allowed-apps-controlled-folder-access-windows-10-a.html I had to add chkdsk to this list so I could check external hard drives for errors because my chkdsk would not complete. Now, can I scream?
  21. Wow, worked for me, fantastic, spent so much time on this too. Worked right away as soon as I turned this off.
  22. I am not running any antivirus software, just defender. I am running these computers clean. Note that I have a laptop and desktop with Windows 10 and neither one of these computers will do a chkdsk driveletter: /f /r on these external drives. Tried 3 drives on two different Windows 10 computers with the same result. And the result is: An unspecified error occurred (Random numbers) Also I have tested these drives before and they had no bad sectors. I then put a date on them when I scanned them so I am not worried about if the drives are good. They read good. I am just wondering why Windows 10 gives these messages and my Windows 7 does not and does the full scan. So I guess that rules that out. Ok, I just tried something else. I can do a chkdsk D: which is the external drive letter but when I add a switch like /r or /f or both is when I get this error message in the dos window. So something is prevented Win 10 from letting me use the switch on these mechanical drives.
  23. Just tried three other drives on the same computer. A 1 TB, a 250 GB and a 320 GB drive with same results. There must be a way of checking an external hard drive on Windows 10 so I can dump my Windows 7 computer. I am talking about the chkdsk command not a hd utility.
  24. Just did it on my Windows 10 without the /r and still the same message. I even tried the /x command. I have tried it in both cmd programs, admin and normal. I also tried it in all my powershell programs and same result. Windows 7 runs it as normal and smooth. Try to YouTube this problem, no one can address this problem. I haven't tried it in Windows 10 safe mode and I shouldn't have to. What I have to keep a Windows 7 computer around so I can do a chkdsk of hard drives?
