  1. Just to share my "server" Win 7 ultimate with no more windows update running. It's a busy server with lot of things running on it 24*24 including my visualized Linux router, minecraft server, 3 teamspeak servers, apache with many virtual hosts including my public small company web site...
  2. Personally, I did disable Winupdate on my 2 win 7 Ultimate and 2 win 8.1 core 6 months ago and seeing how things goes I then now think about deleting these services for good. It's a long run for me personally being an IT Infrastructure Architect specialized in AD and clients deployment, but if we face the truth about MS now, this service + bits are the most useless things on Win 7 and 8.1 at home. (And I enjoy deploying 1000+ Win 7 pro with Office 2010 currently in a big company )
  3. No I did not know 11.12 was released and I use MSI afterburner to manage the fan on the graphic card. I understand the "if it works, don't fix it" strategy, but it's really a way to be outdated. I tend to do the same, but I always try new versions and revert in case of problem or I would be still using Win XP on this PC. NoelC, when (and if) you install driver >= 15.11, if you select "AMD Settings" it will remove the Catalyst control center and replace it with this new application. Personally for the moment I prefer to not select it and Catalyst Control Center is kept.
  4. Please note that AMD Crimson 15.11 driver is also working perfectly on Win 8.1 x64 with Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.4.0.200 x64. I have a R9 280X. Edit: And since I saw I was using an old version, I just updated it and Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.4.1.240 x64 works fine too. I develop with SlimDx and no problem, I play WoW and no problem with these 15.11 drivers.
  5. I still do not understand how you get this 10586.x version I have all updates installed and it's still 10240. It's not that I want to update it absolutely, but it's a VM I use to know Win10 as much as possible. See by yourself (Win 10 Pro x64):
  6. Hello, Back in topic, I have a "little" problem cleaning-up a Win 8.1 core. I removed nearly all patches since April 2015, but one refuse to uninstall and I can't find a way to remove it. "KB2976978 is required by your computer and cannot be removed" kind of message when I do a Wusa /uninstall /kb:2976978 /norestart Any help appreciated. It's not so important since I block the connections on my internet router, but I would like to cleanup this box too so it does stop contacting sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com:443 so often. Ridrok
  7. Hi, I did run the Windows update on my VM Windows 10.0 10240 Pro to check. But no TH2 patch, it is still a 10240 version. How did you install this evil TH2? Maybe when it will be on Windows update, it will may be not reset all settings? Ridrok
  8. All versions of Windows I use are retail boxes editions. This is my applications server running Win7 Ultimate in DMZ (I couldn't not afford buying a server edition). Not patched since April, Winupdate disabled, running 24*7, last rebooted one month ago because of power supply failure and no plan to reboot it anymore. My main PC running win 8.1 std (pro was too expensive) with same configuration: winupdate disabled and no patches since April: So it seams we are fine with retail boxed editions since they are permanently activated, probably OEM are too, I will check when a client bring me a PC for repair. Edit: Forgot to say that all known URL (http or https) are blocked at my router/squid proxy so no license checking can be made by these hosts. Ridrok
  9. Thank you for sharing this NoelC. With updates from Mai until now, Win 8.1 smells like a Win 10 in privacy aspect. I did not check personally for a month since I came to the conclusion that the only viable solution was: 1) to disable Win Update service (and bits service to free memory used for nothing) 2) to remove all updates since April 2015. I have a quiet Win 8.1 (with aeroglass, Classic Start Menu, Opaque TaskBar, SwiftSearch...) and am happy with this to develop software, encode video, play WoW.... Sure I understand you in checking all possible solutions because I don't feel comfortable in having a fixed version which will age forever, and can't switch easily to Linux since I mainly develop for Windows platforms and playing with Wine is just not a good solution. But since I lost my trust in MS now, I really feel trapped with a hope one day an OS like and compatible with Win 7 will emerge. My 2 cents. Ridrok
  10. From what I remmember, the "core" version of Windows 10 is just a sort of Windows without interface made to run on very small devices like Raspberry Pi. Edit: with link: http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/Downloads.htm Edit2: Grr, misred the 1st post, this is "IoT core", then I don't know better what Windows 10 core is.
  11. Personally I don't fear this. For one, we payed Win 7/8, they can't just deactivate it for the reason we don't install patches since April 2015.
  12. About the Windows 7/8.1/10 keys and activation: When you reserve Win10, MS creates a new Win10 Home or Pro key for the current computer and keep it. When you actually upgrade you Win7/8/8.1, the new key is used to install/activate your Win10 and I can ensure you it's different from the original win7/8/8.1 one. I know this because I extracted my Win10 Pro key after I upgraded my Win7 Ultimate, to have it if I ever want to install Win 10 Pro again. Of course, the Win 7 key was back after roll-back. So there is no reason for Win10 upgrade to invalidate your Win7/8/8.1 key. Ridrok
  13. I don't know if many notice this, but advertisements about Windows 10 always only show 1 thing: always the same wallpaper, and only the start menu open, nothing else. If it was configuration awful window + calculator + the Win10 about box, it would be a good anti-advertisement
  14. Let MS supports only their crapOS 10, let them kill themselves, enjoy it
  15. If that can be useful to anyone, I have one of the first I7 ever made, 12gb DDR3 RAM, Win 8.1 x64 on a 256gb Plextor PCI-E SSD with tonnes of applications mainly to develop. The applications I develop sometime require a bit more memory than the free one I have with VS/sygwin loaded, so I did setup Windows to use a fixed 4gb pagefile on the SSD to accomplish this. Simple. -- My Linux Gentoo on the same PC also has a 4gb swap partition for same use on Linux -- So my advice is simple: 1) set it fixed size to be sure the place is allocated once for all and on a fast drive if you really require this memory space (and make it contiguous if you use a HDD) 2) Set the size to what the programs you run may require, no need to match physical memory size which became irrelevant with the memory we can now put on motherboards. Do you care if Windows cannot dump its full memory in case of crash? I am not, I don't develop FOR Microsoft, I develop WITH Microsoft products. Ridrok
  16. NoelC, I did (update a years old Win 7 to 10) ! But this Win 7 was not anymore my main OS, I left this Win 7 on HD while I installed 8.1 on SSD 2 years ago. The goal was to keep all applications which are nightmare to reinstall (VS2008+2010+2012+2013 along with MS+QT frameworks as an example). And the update was pretty **** good, I did appreciate the work MS did in this area, it just removed Daemon Tools and updated my years old Win 7 to 10 in about 1 hour without a glitch (but yep, my graphic card is an AMD one, not a nvidia one). Even my old Logitech Z10 speakers with LCD screen was still working. It's only after I found that the interface was unsuitable for any serious work, the new start menu worst start menu ever made, big fonts in task bar that can only be made yet bigger, unusable calculator requiring you have the mouse over it to work.... and 2 days after the flow of data exiting my custom router against my will. Only after that, I selected the "return back to Win 7" option and the downgrade was nearly as perfect as the upgrade, in less than 15 minutes I had Win 7 booting again, had to repair Office 2010 by the way. So from my experience I can tell MS did a very good work on migrating OS, even if it's to upgrade to crapOS 10. But sure they needed to in order to force the upgrade of millions of PC. Ridrok
  17. For me, I think MS can be attacked for Win 7 and Win8.1, since we did not accept any EULA about there patches that add the telemetry to these OS since 2015/04, and I did open a request to French CNIL about this.
  18. Well, it probably contains also all these spy in it since PRO version is for companies and supposed to have less if any. But, I cleaned my 3 PC running Win 7 and 8.1 from patches after April so that I don't have to chase and block these spywares, not too add another program that add them back. Ridrok
  19. Yes, I was mainly talking about watson.telemetry, vortex.data, sqm.telemetry and dmd.metaservices and many go.microsoft.com/fwlink winaero.com is fine yes, it's used by opaque taskbar application.
  20. Hello, I needed Visual Studio 2015, then I did install VS2015 Pro. What a surprise when I discovered that after the reboot my Win 8.1 was as chatty as a Win 10 can be!!! So I removed it along with patches added at the same time and my Win 8.1 is nearly clean again. That's it, I lost my trust in MS for good. Back to April state about patches on my Win 7 and 8.1 systems, and disabled Win Update for good on all of them. Win 7/8.1 + Office 2010 + VS2013 is my final choice for coming years in regard to MS products.

  21. Hello here, I can tell I am gamer, not a big one, just a WoW player. I have a DX12 "compatible" card (R9-280X), a dual boot Win 7 x64 ultimate on HD and Win 8.1 x64 Std on SSD. This DX12 is what made me update my Win7 to Win10 Pro, and I saw a fair bit boost in WoW. But I am also an Engineer and I saw by coincidence 4 days after I upgraded to Win10 in log on my router (a self made linux router+http proxy+telephony server and more stuffs...) that this Win10 was talking so much to unknown destinations that I reverted to Win7 and started back using my Win8.1. Then I saw it was talking also to .telemetry.microsoft.com and after search I came here. All that to say: people will upgrade. DX12 is faster than 10 or 11. Only very few will come to know what Win 10 is in fact: a SpyOS; nearly no-one will know/care about what the OS is doing. But I do care, I did clean and hide these patches from my win 7 and 8.1 and PCs of children (one Win7, one Win 8.1) and they are all quiet again. And I feel like you NoelC, I am thinking seriously about denying Windows Update at home at router level since I lost my trust in MS, and I am an IT Infrastructure architect, specialized in AD... Now about Win10, I still don't know. I have a VM nearly tamed locally and at router level, I wonder if I will upgrade my Win 8.1 or not. In fact I ask myself if the added functionalities is worth the effort taming it month after months. Or I could update and block Win Update too.... I tend to conclude NO and stay on 8.1 for now. My 2 cents. Ridrok
  22. Thank you for the link klasik Using their code, I get a far better result (here hover over the [X]): Buttons are where they are supposed to be and even if the display is not 100% perfect it's so better Here is the code for Chrome/userChrome.css. #main-window[windowtype="navigator:browser"] { background-color: transparent !important;}#titlebar-buttonbox .titlebar-button { background-color: transparent !important;}#titlebar-buttonbox #titlebar-min:-moz-any(:hover,[open]), #titlebar-buttonbox #titlebar-max:-moz-any(:hover,[open]) { background-color: hsla(210,4%,10%,.08) !important;}#titlebar-buttonbox #titlebar-close:-moz-any(:hover,[open]) { background-color: hsla(360,100%,50%,0.5) !important;}#titlebar-buttonbox .titlebar-button .toolbarbutton-icon{ display: none !important;}Ridrok
  23. Hello, As you may have noticed, Firefox 40 add its own buttons in the top of the window to minimize/maximize and close. With a Chrome/userChrome.css file put in firefox profile, we can get the transparency back. Here is the content of this file (not done by me): #main-window[windowtype="navigator:browser"] { background-color: transparent !important;}.titlebar-button { background-color: transparent !important; transition: background-color 0.2s ease;}.titlebar-button > .toolbarbutton-icon { width: 10px; height: 10px; list-style-image: none;}.titlebar-button:hover { background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.15) !important;}#titlebar-close:hover { background-color: #E81123 !important;}#titlebar-close:hover > .toolbarbutton-icon { width: 10px; height: 10px; list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/caption-buttons.svg#close-white") !important;}This makes the right corner like any other window with the Altas file from NoelC: The problem with custom Atlas files is that buttons may be smaller than the original Win10 ones. And when hovering over them (close button): minimize button: Firefox thinks the buttons are bigger and not placed where they are. I know I can fix this simply by allowing Firefox to display the normal title bar, but I find this ugly and taking too much space. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? It's probably something more to add in Chrome/userChrome.css but I personally really don't know what to add. Thanks, Ridrok
