    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    thats a lul remember older times when upgrading from 98 to XP took maybe 1 hour and maybe some bit more yet hardware was crap comparing to now now you have freaking warp speed and it takes 20 hours (probably coz of all winblows 10 garbage stiffed in) what happened to - protect/lock programs and user data and simply overwrite every other system file ? -> winblows 10 happened maybe before "upgrade" they are scanning your HDD's to see what toilet paper you use the most

    Easy over-installation ?

    space isn't problem anymore thats why I copied whole SxS back over, but you can still save 5 GB if you filter out all _language_ (except en-us, _none_, and yours) and remove backup folder

    Easy over-installation ?

    wow sometimes i just amaize myself how dumb but easy things i do hahaha so the way to bypass "corrupted component store" error (if you trimmed your SxS folder) 1. copy your current WinSxS folder somewhere.... 2. take ownership of \Windows\WinSxS folder 3. copy BACK from untouched source (iso/wim) WinSxS and Merge with your current one 4. (just to be safe), copy over/merge the backuped one with one in your Windir and voila, you can install updates now with no problem your "comp. store" is now "fixed"

    Easy over-installation ?

    so issue I have is a modified win7 (reduced size, removed components bla bla bla) question is, is there easy way to "over copy" (or install) full-blown // untouched OS from DVD/ISO without going through format and all driver crap detection while leaving Program Files (and apps) intact ?

    No MSFN forums with Opera Presto engine

    1. devs didn't "mess to bring old opera", they just issued a patched version to fix certificate problems 2. you can try hex-edit opera.dll and change user agent string, see if that helps, just make sure there are equal bytes used as in original
  14. not that simple to just jump to newest HW... remember that any device is vaulnerable mobile-phones, atm's, kiosk's, pc's, tablets ... ... not so cheap to get new home PC device and phone (not to mention these new OS-es suck balls)
