  1. Strange, they are present in Windows 8 that I am running, and since ntoskrnl.exe depends on them they must still be present in Windows 10 too.
  2. Yes, Internet Explorer 11.0.11 (if you can find it). Personally I have version 11.0.7, see below:
  3. Have you turned the showing hidden files option on?
  4. What exactly do you mean by aligning the partitions? You aligned them by cylinder, by MB or is it something else? And... why did you do it in the first place? It's better not to do such dangerous things without a serious reason.
  5. I think that at the time that Windows 98 were released there wasn't even the idea of a language pack...
  6. Alternatively you can disable the five scheduled tasks that are included in the Task Scheduler>Windows>Setup folder, it will totally do the job.
  7. For monitoring traffic: NetBalancer (free for monitoring traffic, just a prompt to activate when you open it after the trial period expires). You can see which application communicates with whom, when and how much it uploads/downloads (with Windows 10 we reached the spot where the uploading is more suspicious than the downloading...).
  8. Just don't trust any Microsoft's product from 2015 and afterwards.
  9. I had a look into XP Mode myself some time ago and I have the impression that it is installable right away on the appropriate versions of Windows 7 - no need for Virtual PC.
  10. There must be a mistake here. Also how much memory does the Windows XP detect totally?
  11. A simpler method (ESET independent) is to find the Microsoft patch for this vulnerability (KB4012598) and install it. If you have done it you are protected, if you haven't you are not.
  12. Well, the question is why it says only 3.5 GB instead of 7.5 (maybe it can't say more for some reason - a kind of 4 GB limit?).
  13. GDI+ is a Microsoft graphics api.
  14. Yes but there is always a way to access and use it in order to restore your computer to the factory settings (varying from vendor to vendor).
  15. It may sound silly, but maybe Windows 7 consumes more power and the battery is inadequate for it? Did this thing always happened with this laptop since it had Windows 7 installed or it started happening recently? Also is the battery installed properly in Windows 7?
  16. I think that I am reffering to what you call "partition for the recovery image".
  17. Don't these computers have a restore partition (with the original OS of course)? In the case of Windows 10 someone said that they stop access to the restore partition but it is still there (so you must be able to find and use it somehow). If the PC is from 2012 then it had probably Windows 8 originally installed.
  18. I have read so but don't remember where, you can find something in Google (e.g. search for "SSDs trim necessary").
  19. As far as I know modern SSDs manage this issue by themselves and don't need any external "trimming".
  20. Maybe you must add the printer's Wi-Fi to the trusted networks of Avast (I speculate it must have something like that)?
  21. There is a patch for the WannaCry issue for Windows 8 (even for Windows XP!) even if it isn't offered by Windows Update (not to me at least): KB4012598 (This is for 64 bit Windows, for 32 bit Windows just change the id number in the URL from 55249 to 55246).
  22. NVDIA telemetry is probably innocent (performance data) but Windows 10 telemetry surely isn't.
  23. Use Windows 8 fully updated (until the last January 2016 updates) or Windows 8.1 Update 1 with no other updates (except if you have the courage to check if they are related to telemetry and download one by one the past standalone updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog, you can do the same for Windows 8 and the updates for Windows Server 2012 - I don't know if there are any telemetry updates included in this case).
