  1. Hello Bigmuscle and fellow Glass8 users! I run Windows 10 mit Glass8 on my Desktop PC, and since the anniversary update I have to randomly recurring problems with Glass8. 1. White window borders Normally, all is working fie, but on some windows starts I get white window borders instead of glassy ones. See attached screenshot. debug.log shows nothing out of the ordinary as far as I can tell. when this happens, DWM seems to run into some kind of memory leak as it grabs more and more RAM for itself. Normally it uses about 17-20MB, as you can see in the screenshot, I had already over 300MB allocated after maybe 15 minutes. I then restart windows and the issue is gone, glass is back and DWM runs normal. 2. Glass8 theme not applied This also happens randomly and more often than the first issue. According to the debug.log the standard theme (which I am using) is loaded, but the window border is just glass without a theme. I can either restart Windows or just apply the theme again using the GUI. Then the theme is loaded correctly. I tried the configure it using the GUI in admin mode, but that did not help. I also searched the registry with regedit related reg keys, as I have moved the install location. There was one key with the old path to the theme, which corresponded to a file not found error in the debug log where aerohost used the old path to the theme file. I have corrected this and the path is correct now, but the issue still randomly appears. Here it appeared directly after the reboot I did because of issue 1. Maybe someone has a clue or idea what could be the cause of this issues? I will gladly provide any information or logfile needed, just tell me what I have to do. Thanks! no_theme_debug.log white_windowframe_debug.zip
  2. Because of the UI and UX awfulness of Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, there have been many people who stayed on Windows 7. I hate stock Windows 8/8.1 very much but after intensive modification by third party apps, especially Classic Shell and others, it becomes somewhat acceptable. So I began comparing it to Windows 7 to evaluate if there were any actual improvements too that were worth upgrading to Windows 8.1. Windows 10 is still extremely awful to the point where it no longer remains an enjoyable experience for long due to forced updates, size of updates being hidden and Microsoft resetting what you have carefully set up every few months. Nevertheless, Windows after Windows 7 did have some improvements on the hardware experience side. I am trying to make such a list. I already moved to Windows 8.1 with Classic Shell and a dozen other third party apps to fix the awful software experience. On the hardware and software side, Windows 8.1 has the following benefits for me over Windows 7: - Windows Search in Windows 8.1 has the ability to include removable drives/folders on removable drives in the Search index/or in a Library and have them indexed! - Windows 8 introduces a new Solid Windows setup image format that uses LZMS compression. The resulting image install.esd is much smaller than install.wim - Memory Combining reduces the footprint of processes in the working environment - USB 3.0 support. Even though Windows 7 PCs do have USB 3.0 drivers, Windows 8.1 supports USB Attached SCSI protocol which makes UASP flash drives much faster than USB 3.0 on Windows 7. UASP with USB 3.0 is a significant speed boost over USB 2.0 while still maintaining compatibility with USB 2.0 devices. - USB Video Class 1.5 means your UVC webcam will work with inbox drivers and use H.264 compression (if your webcam supports it). 8.1 also supports 1080p60 webcams (60 fps), with Windows 7 and earlier, you're limited to 30 fps and USB 2.0. - USB Type C connector with KB3103696 - Bluetooth Low Energy (LE)/Bluetooth SMART support means I can use devices like Bluetooth wireless mouse which supports the Bluetooth 4.0 LE standard or LE headsets. The batteries in these devices last for a long time. I began to use a Bluetooth 4 wireless mouse with 8.1 on my laptop and its single AA battery lasted one full year! Now that's amazing! This is something that was unexpected - a touch-centric OS like Windows 8/8.1 actually improving my MOUSE experience in Windows!! - 802.11ac. With a fast 802.11ac router, 2 PCs with PCIe/NVM Express SSDs, you get amazing WiFi speeds. (OK, after doing some testing on Windows 7, it turns out, as long as you have the right drivers installed under Windows 7 and an 802.11ac router, you will get the same faster than N speeds as Windows 8 on 7 as well. It's only that Windows 7 continues to report your radio as 802.11n.) - Offloaded Data Transfers for file copying - More WMI classes and PowerShell cmdlets - Miracast wireless streaming to a display which 8.1 supports (although you could also use Windows 7 with Intel WiDi or buy a Chromecast dongle). But Miracast in 8.1 lets you not only mirror your display wirelessly to the second display but also extend your desktop to it. Like a wireless multiple monitors solution! - Windows 8.1 supports external manifests for application executables ("PreferExternalManifest"=dword:00000001) without any side effects of Windows 7 like the Network icon breaking. This is important if you are using a High resolution/High DPI display because Microsoft f***ed up DPI scaling with Windows 7. I wrote an article "How to fix apps that look small on high DPI and high resolution displays" but the modications in it requires the PreferExternalManifest Registry key to be set which works correctly only on Windows 8.1, not on 7). - The DPI scaling engine in Windows 8.1 loads much earlier than Windows 7 so apps which load at startup are scaled properly - Windows 8.1 has better WinSxS cleanup using Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase - Besides the good old SFC /scannow, Windows 8.1 has the ability to repair the Component Store itself using: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth. Also its servicing stack is self-healing, it recovers from component corruption vs 7's stack which requires fixes from Windows Update like running CheckSUR - Chkdsk Spotfix ability - Client Hyper-V (although I was a fan of Virtual PC too, but VirtualBox is a good replacement for Virtual PC, except for running legacy Windows OSes) - Most issues on the software side were resolved for me by using third party apps - Classic Shell, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, Classic Task Manager, Equalizer APO, Google Chrome, Everything Search, PerigeeCopy, OldNewExplorer, FileSearchEX, VistaSwitcher, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema, and reinstating Sidebar Gadgets, Classic Games, classic MSConfig, various tray applet fixes, ERUNT, AutoHotkey, EasyBCD, UxStyle plus this theme, WindowsFirewallControl etc - All the Metro crap uninstalled, default programs set to Win32 apps, Group Policies to disable crap like OneDrive, Bing Search and Customer Experience Improvement Program, it is OK. - DOZENS of Registry fixes to make it work like the way I want - more like Windows XP Professional and Windows 7 so Windows 8.1 is now a pleasant and stable experience!! - Media Center is missing but I got a new LG TV which has far better DVR recording features using modern compression and takes the load off the PC. If you don't have another piece of hardware that does DVR and home theatre, try Kodi. It is in my opinion superior to Media Center in many ways. - Aero Glass project is there if you miss Aero. Personally I don't miss Aero's transparencies any more. I prefer this theme instead with makes the taskbar's active button of the foreground (focused) window very clear and easy to understand. From a usability perspective, I find the Windows 8 theme is uglier compared to Windows 7 but the visual cues are better. For example, it is easier to tell the active window due to the use of solid colors in the title bar compared to transparencies. The baby blue selection color in context menus is also more visible in the Windows 8 theme vs Windows 7. - Classic Shell can completely skin its Start menu and the taskbar in any OS on Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 so the taskbar appearance too is fixable. - Windows 8.1 has great performance as a virtualized guest OS due to DWM compositing being hardware accelerated/Advanced Rasterization Platform vs Windows 7 in a VM (even with WDDM drivers). Windows 10 is again horribly slow in a VM due to excessive use of managed code/.NET in the Explorer shell. Windows 10 has the following benefits over Windows 8.1: - RemoteFX vGPU in Client Hyper-V (although VirtualBox is faster, more useful for me) - Windows Spotlight (although the Lockscreen Slideshow of 8.1 is just as good) - Miracast receiving ability in Anniversary Update and later (but an app called MirrorOp does the same for earlier versions of Windows) - DLNA Streaming of YouTube and other web videos to DLNA compatible TVs using Microsoft Edge and Windows Media Player (I haven't been able to find any decent 3rd party app to DLNA stream to TVs that works as well as Windows 10's built-in streaming). But in Windows 10, mostly I find cheap gimmicky features like Cortana and more of the silly Metro stuff forced on us! We have a broken updating mechanism now that abuses your internet bandwidth, changes things on your PC however it wants, whenever it wants, downloads unwanted crap from the Store, shows annoying nags. Action Center is just one more headache to manage and clear all the notifications after reading them. Lots of stuff happening behind the scenes which I cannot control. Even if I can control updates somewhat by setting my Wifi to metered, I have no idea how big they are, what exactly are they going to change because many of the changes are undocumented, and so many of my customized tweaks get reset. Updates take a hell lot of time to download and install compared to the little value they add. This is a complete deal-breaker. And then the UI which is still a disaster. For me, Windows 10 is a very strong case of negatives overwhelmingly outweighing any positives. Given the extremely intrusive nature of Windows 10, it is not suitable for serious use on a business/enterprise class PC. I can think of no good reason to use it for now. Windows 8/8.1 on the other hand whose childish UI and Metro silliness killed it has now evolved because great hardware is available and the f***ED up software side is fixed by third party apps. Do you have any good reasons on the hardware side to "upgrade" to Windows 10? The software changes in Windows 10 are already AWFUL with silly features like Store, Cortana, ugly and silly Metro/UWP apps, totally crap visual style and graphics, slow bloated .NET code in the shell, Windows Update nonsense, Telemetry crap, Tablet mode/Touch UI infecting more parts of Windows destroying the mouse/keyboard usability, GarbEdge being worse than IE. Discuss. UPDATE: Update size is also a big factor affecting my experience due to slow internet. It has ballooned tremendously for Windows 8.1 (updates are up to 100 MB or more) compared to Windows 7 (less than 50 MB). Don't even ask about Windows 10 where monthly updates are 500 MB to several GBs!!!!. I cannot download such huge updates every month just to keep Windows secure, simply do not have the bandwidth. Windows 10 is out of the question forever.
  3. Hi guys - I've already posted this in Classic Shell's forums and Ten Forums and after coming across this one, I'm hoping for some valuable feedback that may diagnose this issue. So far I haven't received any unfortunately and the issue is driving me nuts now lol. So copy pasting begins:
  4. Hi everyone, we have a great topic on this forum, with information about how we can avoid being upgraded to Windows 10. But the deadline is getting closer, so are you going to make use of the free upgrade to Windows 10 before the deadline, or are you going to stay with your current OS? Sorry for my bad English!

  7. Is there a command line way if anyone knows to open the Network flyout in Windows 10? In Windows 7/8 it was shell:::{38A98528-6CBF-4CA9-8DC0-B1E1D10F7B1B}. However this no longer works in 10 unless StartIsBack++ is installed which seems to "repair" shell:::{38A98528-6CBF-4CA9-8DC0-B1E1D10F7B1B}. I would like to know if there is some other way to open the Network flyout (the UI that shows when you click the Network icon in notification area/system tray). Also, does anyone know a cmd line to open the Date and Power flyouts in Windows 7/8?
  8. Hi, I've decided to reinstall Windows on a 4years old laptop, because it's showing weird errors (basically Start Menu, Settings, and Apps don't run anymore). What's better: A- restore it to factory settings (so Win8 + apps) and redo all the infinite upgrades. B- reinstall just Win10. I'm thinking about B, do you agree? Are there some drawbacks? (except for Win10 itself, but the owner likes it) Anything I should be careful about? (other that the backup and maybe system img)

  11. This Asus laptop is not mine, but it has a strange UI. Is this Desktop type normal for Win10? All programs are basically hidden, and I can only use\add apps. Same for the application bar and the Start Menu. Some common links have also been moved in a submenu accessible from an icon at the top. Also, sometimes, due to various errors, a normal desktop appears instead of this O_o WTF?

  14. This is my Second bigger Feedback, it´s just about the most worse things I can't stand off ! I will post it later with the built-in Feedback App) Bugs that are still existing and I already Tested, like the most worse bit BMP Codec Bug ! Are reposted here ! if you like to read about my Wishes, and some of my already found Bugs (I did not test all off them for this Report) you have to visit: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/173436-windows-10-detailed-feedback-and-wishes/ My Firewall Rules Set (unperfect, unfinished) can be found here: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/173615-windows-firewall-rules/#entry1095994 Feedback: 1) BUG: 32 Bit BMP Codec It is Still Broken (Preview, Photos and Paint does strange things with some Color channels on 32bit Bitmaps...) 2) BUG: Standard Scheduled Tasks destroys Power Saving ! One ore more of the preconfigurated Tasks (why there are so many of them - its like a Overkill) destroys Energy Saving modes like Standby ! That means: My Laptop start Up from Sleep by itself and do things (I don't know) by itself... LISTEN Microsoft: IF I SEND MY LAPTOP TO SLEEP, IT HAS TO SLEEP, NOT TO WAKEUP AND DO STUFF I DON'T KNOW, BY ITSELF ! (If I decide to add a Schedulerjob, it would run in Idle-Mode, before Standby !) Solution: I removed all of the endless annoying Preconfigurated Tasklist on Scheduler, that wasn't blocked (yes some of them are blocked... - why ?) I know that I possibly break something I maybe don't know by that - but it was the only functional Solution to get a nice and smart Powersaving System - works perfect after !) 3) Energy Saving Profiles are Inefficient ! A) If my Laptop runs Battery, I prefer to use all Possible Saving Options that are Possible - no matter which Profile is active (Solution: Manual Change on all Profiles) B) Why the CPU Minimum Usage is Set to 5% in Minimal and Balanced Mode ? This stops the CPU going into Idle Mode and Throttledown, this costs unneeded Energy, that I have to pay for ! (Solution: Manual Change to 0% on all Profiles) C) On High Performance The Minimum CPU Usage is Set to 100% ??? - Are you Kidding me ? Even on that Scenario my CPU like to be able to change into Idle Mode ! (Solution: See Above) D) Why the Standard Time for Harddrives is 20min on Every Profile, when I use a SSD ? A SSD don't need time for Start Spinning like a normal Harddrive, what means, there is no Reason, to let it Run Up to 20mins if it has nothing to do (Yes with normal Harddrives it makes some sense to let them spin longer, cause it needs some seconds to respin after a SpinOff) (Solution: Manual Change to 1min on all Profiles) LISTEN: USERS DON'T LIKE TO CHANGE THEIR ENERGYPROFILE 1000 TIMES OVER A DAY ! A CPU THROTTLEDOWN (CPU Reduces MHZ by Reducing the Power on IDLE MODE) MUST BE POSSIBLE EVERY TIME, ON EVERY PROFILE !!! & SSD´s ARE NON SPINNING DEVICES ! 4) USB Harddrives still Spinning after a Secure Disconnect ! I know, that a secure disconnect normally is only needed if the Drive using Cached Smartdrive Techniques to be Faster (which must be toggled on for usage manual by the user) But, cause I really don't like, to plug out cables on spinning USB Harddrives, I would prefer that Secure Disconnect sends a SPIN OFF Signal to the USB Device too... LISTEN: If you don't like to add a SpinOFF Command to the Secure Disconnection, please give me back the "Park Command" from MS-DOS 5.0 !!! 5) Windows Firewall - All Doors Open, no Outbound Dialog, if I Close them ! A) BUG 1: The UI-BUG (UI Restarts if I Copy and Paste Names on the Advanced Firewall Rules Config) is annoying ! B) BUG 2: At some Points Envorinment Varibales (used Automatic when adding an .exe File that lays as example on the User Profile) could not be readed C) THE Standard Rules Set (Every Outbound is allowed by Standard, is the biggest security whole ever !) I like to be ASKED if a Prog like to do a Call Out, cause it is my own **** Privatsphere ! Example: A Software Developer doesn't need to Know, how often a Day, Week or Month, and on which Times Exactly I start his Program ! (if he like to know, I only tell him, if he pay me for that information !) Its even a Security Risk, cause many Bloat and Spyware will download their s*** automatically by their Installers, and since most Software are using WEB-Installers instead of a Full OffLine Version, its getting worse) But: IF I Change the Standard Rules to: Everything is Forbidden to Callout since there is no Rule - Windows Firewall don't ask my if I like to allow a Callout for Edgebrowser, Windows Update, etc... - What means that I have to make manual Rules for every Software but I wasn't able to make a Allow Rule for WindowsUpdate, what means that I have to Change my whole Rules Set back to Standard, every time I like to do Updates ! GRRRRRR !!! 6) Stop Software Hijacking my Standard Browser Example: I install a Software, and it Starts my Browser and Loading its website by itself - I know, that I can prevent that, by Editing the Registry and put out, the Standardbrowser entry's, - but I would prefer a dialog, that asks me, if I like to allow a software, to Hijack my Browser ! (Don't like to end up on Captured Sites, that I don't click by myself ! - Don't tell me Websites can't be captured !) 7) The Search is slow and Sucks I like the Fast and practical Search on Windows XP, where I was able to Decide if I search a String inside Files, or Files by itself... - If I search a file with Standard Options as example for Shell32.dll - it doesn't find it... - if I change some Options its able to find it, but it needs to much time - compared to Windows XP Search, or the Software: "Agent Ransack" 8) Desktop.ini - is going worse ! Principial I like to see all hidden and System Files, and if I do so, I see the Desktop.ini (that I used in Windows XP, to force FolderBackgrounds, Foldercolor and ...) is part of the Translation Options, - and if I delete them, my Localized Shortcuts are Named in English... - Did you really need a Desktop.ini, that links to a Place in the Registry to localize my Shortcutnames ? 9) Please, LET ME Remove all Following Apps and Features, without any Problems... (i will try it again and again, cause i need to...) Unneeded Ballast, cause I am using HomePremium: - Business Edition Packages - Education Editions Packages - Enterprise Editions Packages - Professional Editions Package's - RetailDemo Editions Packages Personal Untrusted Security and Private Data Leaks, for me and the most Users: (means I don't trust you, Microsoft, to keep my Private Data Private !!!) - This doesnt meant, that some parts of it cant be usefull, if they are End-To-End Encrypted with SHA-512 or better...: - BioEnrollment - Biometrics - Calendar - Cloud - Contacts - Cortana - Defender - FaceAnalysis - Photos - Geolocation - Grove Music - Movie & TV - OneDrive - Telemetry - RemoteAssistance & RemoteDesktop - ShareMedia - Sway - WMPNetworkSharingService Sense and Useless: - 3D Builder (sadly I don't have a 3D Printer) - Candy Crush (Don't need it) - Finance (no Broker here) - First Steps... (your and My One, are in different reality's) - Handwriting (no Touchscreen or similar thing here) - IIS (this is a single HomePC no Network, no Webserver !) - Indexer (On a SSD [Limited Write Cycles !!!] its doing useless writings - build a better Searchoption like XP Search or Agent Ransack instead) - Mail (no I don't use offline mails at all, cause Windows 10 is starving to often, and I don't like to lost or need rescue them every time !) - Maps (OK not such bad thing, but I have Google Maps !) - Minecraft (don't need it !) - News ( I like to choose Media I trust by myself, thx !) - ntv (I don't trust them - the Sending to much unreflective uncritical documentations about Weapons and Tanks - its like the TV from the Starship Troopers Movie... !) - OCR (Never used it since Win95) - Office Downloader (sorry, I decide years ago to use OpenOffice !) - OfflineFiles (my Files are always OFFLINE !) - OneNote (don't need it !) - ParentalControls (there are no Kids inside here !) - Photoshop Express (Photoshop CS2 is Freeware until 2 Years and much better !) - Prefetch & Co (its still an SSD I use, stop limiting its lifetime by unneeded writings !) - Printing Online (would never ever do that) - Skype (no Skype at all, but if - I use the Portable Version !) - SnippingTool (useless, I am able to push the Printscreen Button on my Keyboard, and add and edit it in Paint by myself !) - SNMP-Package (I only need IPV4 and maybe IPV6 in the future ! Nothing else ! No IGMP, no LLDP, no QOS, no Topology, no Multiplex... - its a Single PC without Network !) - Solitare (don't need it !) - Speech (don't need it !) - SpeechComponents (I am not blind) - Spelling-Dictionaries (I prefer the Build-in Language Correction of a Writing Software) - Sport (I hate all that violent National Fan Racists of popular Sports so much, that I hate Sportnews by itself !) - StickyNotes (I use notepad and the desktop instead !) - StorageService (don't need it !) - Synchronization (to often I just named files with different contends the same name, and I don't like to destroy my data by hitting a button) - TabletPC (no Tablet here !) - Telephone Stuff (no, I don't have a LuminaPhone, and I don't want it !) - TextPrediction (don't need it) - TextToSpeech (maybe I could keep that, if it works a 100% in German) - Twitter (no I don't use it, and if, I use it in Browser only !) - UAC (I Prefer a Sandbox, a Outbound Firewall, Regshot, and the netstat Command for untrusted Software instead !) - WebcamExperience (what Kind of Experience you talking about ? Don't need it) - Windows Hello (my PC don't have any Intelligence by itself - maybe in 500 years... So stop saying hello to me !) - WinSATMediaFiles (senseless, 3D Mark, Prime95 and SpecViewPerf are the Standard Benchmark Tools) - XBox (I DON'T HAVE ONE !) - Xps (Never used that..) 10) Bug: Repair Installation dont works I did a unsuccessful repair installation after I broke the system by trying to remove the above Packages with dismn Online command, so I was forced to do a new Full Install... Thx for Reading R4D3 P.S. - Cause english isnt my native language, i used a online Spellchecker before, - if something is to hard to understand, cause of some language mistakes, just tell me...
  15. I have Dell tablet with Windows 10. This morning I turned on the tablet and checked the local weather. All done. Turned off tablet. Turned it on a couple hrs later, no desktop icons showing, no apps showing. Just have desktop picture showing. I can access internet and file manager from the bar along the bottom of screen. The Windows icon in the left corner does not do anything unless I press and hold for several seconds. Then I get a menu for system, control panel, etc. Downloaded and ran malware scanners, and Avast. No change. If I swipe the screen left to right, the desktop icons appear for a split second. Swiping right to left doesn't work. Any ideas?
  16. Hello, is there a clear procedure to delete\edit the first account in the default Mail program? The button is missing and there's no config. I've read that it could be tied to the MS account, but I don't how to check\edit that. The Win10 pc is not mine, however, so I can't test things: I need some instructions to follow, please. Help?
  17. I Have windows 10 os with outlook 2007 installed. when i try to click link inside outlook, it just not open my IE browser(my defaut browser) automatically, but seems it works fine with Edge or chrome.
  18. Hi I wanted to ask why I don't have blur in my title bar at all. But before anything, I just wanted to say that the "AeroGlass doesn't know how to hook up on your DWM" message is still appearing on mine. And I don't know why, Is it because of incompatible OS build on the latest build (I am in Windows 10 Version 1511 - the November update. And the OS build is in 10586.36 now after some small cumulative updates) Is cumulative updates are not recommended to be installed to ensure that AeroGlass will still run on your OS? Or is just a matter or working on symbols and modules to get it working again? Or is it because of incompatible DWM version on the AeroGlass. Is there anyone here who is willing to teach me on how to download these modules from Microsoft and to how to reinject them or install (I guess that's the right term) The guide doesn't say all and I didn't understand anything, I even red the Microsoft documentation that is been linked, and I didn't understand it also at all. Do I need Visual Studio for debugging? Do I need to type some codes in the command prompt to download that? Is there anyone who are really willing to explain this (in a not complicated language) all to me and give a step by step to resolve that DWM and get everything working all right and get that beautiful eye candy. I am a fast learner, I can modify some registry and I am used to some command prompt codes, some administrative access and some management so please all I need is a guide. I know this software is reserved only very advanced users, but I am already a advanced user. So please I just need someone to teach me how to do this. Also what does the zip in experimental builds supposed to do, is it supposed to replace the dll files on the AeroGlass directory whenever WU messes with things and changes something in a update? I am using the AeroGlass for Windows 8.1x+ 1.4.1 in Windows 10 Pro 64-bit On the design : I just have a transparent title bar (both on the Win32 apps and the modern apps) that can be modified both the transparency and the color using the GUI tool, and modifying it on registry also works too. But the blur doesn't work at all, I tried even changing the sliders on the GUI tool to see if the blur will work but it doesn't, also I tried setting the BlurDeviation to 30 on registry but it just doesn't work. Also is it really normal that the machine code message will popup every single time, also the AeroGlass doesn't know how to hook up on your DWM message. If not how to hide that, especially the machine code message? Also Modern apps title bar transparency is a bit weird. It doubles the title bar text and also (I think) the close, restore down/maximize and the minimize. Here it is Here is the imgur gallery here to show some useful screenshots for those who are willing to help me: PS: Something just popuped and it's a command prompt. And I think it's downloading the symbols that the message is saying but I don't know what this all means
  19. Thanks to the blog post linked below where it was discovered that your unique ID was being passed to MS Cloud services in plain text, I've found the same unique ID located in the Windows 10 registry. http://annoyedmicrosoftuser.blogspot.com/2015/10/microsoft-stop-sending-user-identifiers.html The same ID passed in plain text to the cloud is located in the Windows 10 registry under: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Census\MSACIDs The above screenshot is from Window 10 build 10240. I'll be updating OS build to confirm it persists across builds. It was found while logged into Windows 10 with my Microsoft account - not a local account, so YMMV. Originally I used the info in that blog post to verify his results under Windows 7 and IE11. I logged into my Microsoft account and found the CID with Developer Tools (F12) on the Network tab. (The CID is "yellowed-out" in all screenshots) Notice at the top right of the screenshot how Microsoft has conveniently recorded information about every PC I've used to test Windows 10. Stopped capturing network data, closed & reopened IE, started recording network data again and logged into OneDrive to find the same CID. This information persists across hardware, it is not an "anonymous identifier." It is directly linked to your MS account, in plain text, for the majority of Windows 10 users who do not use local accounts. I have Windows 10 and Windows 7 on separate physical hard drives and I physically swapped them out to test this. What does this mean to the average user? Probably not much yet, but I'm sure the blackhats are already on the case. Should we get CID tattoos now or later? One of us! One of us!
  20. So, this is my first post in the forum. The reason why I have to sign up here and post this topic is explained on the title. I won't write long post here. The resource for trace log is below. In case you need the <blah blah blah>.cab, I will upload too: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=2EE5EFF21E741320!3950&authkey=!ACNd-yzlSDJLHlE&ithint=file%2ccab Right there, I saw that there are 2 kids caused the SMSSInit took too long to boot are: <file name="Unknown (0x0)" totalTime="61130" totalOps="257" totalBytes="12167168" writeTime="0" writeOps="0" writeBytes="0" readTime="61130" readOps="257" readBytes="12167168"/>and <extension name="(none)" totalTime="101917" totalOps="1006" totalBytes="160111104" writeTime="27256" writeOps="98" writeBytes="937984" readTime="74660" readOps="908" readBytes="159173120"/>Maybe there are some kids running around my laptop that I can't see. So you guys please help me solve this <beep> problem. EDIT 1: correct typo. EDIT 2: update .cab link EDIT 3: All the drivers are installed correctly. Also, ntbtlog.log shows that dxgkrnl.sys first successfully loaded and 4 times more fails. WdFilter one time more failed. summary_boot.xml
  21. I attempted to uninstall Aero Glass for Windows 10 and then it asks me to restart my computer. I did, but the os did not load, so I did a startup recovery and it thankfully brought Windows 10 back to what it was. Unfortunately, the recovery seemed to remove the file "C:\Aero Glass\unins000.dat" because I can't uninstall Aero Glass. It said [The file "C:\Aero Glass\unins000.dat" does not exist. Cannot install.", and I don't think this version of Aero Glass is compatible with the "November Update". If anyone has a solution, please help!! I will post my screenshots.
  22. Apologies if this is in the wrong section but it seemed as good as any. Ok, so I've just upgraded my NAS unit and disks. All seemed good until I discovered that some folders had mysteriously disappeared. No fear, I thought, as I still have the 2 drives I swapped out with the original folders still on them. I plug one in to my rig and the BIOS happily acknowledges it's existence. Windows 10 however seems less sure of itself. Disk Management shows it with all it's partitions, volumes, etc, but the drive just isn't explorable. The unit was a Synology DS212J and the drives are WD20EARX. So, is this a Windows 10 issue, some kind of proprietary software that Synology used when in the unit or something else I've overlooked? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers James
  23. Since there is no Win10 unattended subforum I am placing this here: How to set the default program by a command (CMD) or Powershell or registery modification? I have searched a lot and only found a way to associate files to specific programs, but that will only add them to the context menu list (Open With...>): @echo onassoc .mkv=MPC-BE.AssocFile.MKVftype MPC-BE.AssocFile.MKV=c:\Program Files\MPC-BE x64\mpc-be64.exe "%1"pauseThe command assoc creates the file type in the registry, the command ftype associates the program. In this example, "MPC-BE" is just a name that I use, you can also use "MPCHC or MPC or whatever, just as long as it matches the same you use in ftype command. But HOW can we set default program? I am particularly intested in: PDF, video files, image editor (Paint.net), 7z/zip. Paint.net silent install arguments do work, but the ones that set the file type associations do not work in Windows 10. (again, only added to the context menu "Open With..." not the context menu "edit". In win7 it worked flawlessly).
  24. What is the deal with the Windows 10 Start Menu? All online guides explain you can export and import it by backing up some files, but these files do not exist anymore in the final version of Windows 10. I figured out a way to actually export the whole Start Menu layout by using this Powershell command: Open Powershell with admin rights (or click WIN+X, select "Command Prompt (Admin)", type powershell and hit enter): Export-StartLayout -Path C:\StartLayout.XMLThis works, the XML file actually contains the layout. But I do not know how to import it to an existing Win10 machine. This is the documentation from Microsoft: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/mt171092%28v=vs.85%29.aspx But this only works by importing the XML file into a Windows Image. Since most people simply install Windows via the free upgrade, I need a way to import it on an exisiting Win 10 installation. Any ideas?
  25. Hello there, I've downloaded the newest aero glass version on my system and installed it, but after the installation a window saying something about incompatibility on my system with aero glass, even though it worked back when I installed it for the first time. I once had it installed on the same system and it worked, then I've uninstalled it and now I've installed it once again because my interest for the program came back. So, as soon as the incompatibility error window popped up, I've began receiving enormous lags and error sounds each time a lag occured, causing a black screen for a second. They stopped after about ten seconds, but as soon as I began moving my mouse, the lags etc. come back, making my system uncontrollable. I went into secure mode and removed the program and now my computer is fine. I'd like to ask for some help because I really want to use this on my system. I'm on a Windows 10 64x bit computer. Oh and by the way, when I installed it, I had the aero lite theme activated which may have caused this to happen, but now I don't have any theme and it still happens when I install it newly.
