Scared by W10 strange behavior on Windows 10

Hi! Decided to ask. After some struggle with w10 10122 - I decided to “clean” install w10 10130. On my MSI CR61 3M it turned out impossible to do so from USB ISO. Had experiments with w7 - too no success. To revive that laptop I installed W10 10130 on MSI’ s disk using another computer. And to my great surprise - it worked! And I get (from “cloud”) even my desktop’s wallpaper. But then.. I was prompted to create PIN code (with text that password is thing of past..), and that was fine. Yester

function loadx(data) { document.write(data.html); } Quote: We have one more surprise for you this week – Build 10162, releasing to the Fast ring. We’re at the point in the development of Windows 10 where nearly every build is getting out to our internal rings, and passing the criteria for release to Windows Insiders. We’re focused at this point on bug fixing and final polish, so it’s much easier for each build to get all the way through than earlier in the cycle when we’

DVD/CD drive keeps grunting

Hi, this is on a Sony Vaio notebook. Model number PCG-61112L The DVD/CD drive keeps making a continual "grunting" sound. I can't think of a better way to describe the sound. The only way to make it quit is to eject the drive. Does anyone know of a way to help me? Thanks, Jim

Random BSODs since heat wave

"Ghost" Recycle Bin

I'm not sure where to start on this (or if I'm even posting in the correct area) as I don't seem to have virus problem and yet I'm not getting any funky errors. I do, however, have a "ghost" recycle bin on my desktop that's been hanging around ever since something happened while running TFC and having a computer crash in the middle of that function. At that time I ended up having to hard boot the computer. Since then, all has been well. The computer is runn

WTF! Why did they disable snapping two apps/folders on both sides of screen

In windows 7 and 8, you could take take apps or folders and throw them on both sides of screen and they would take half the screen each.   On windows 10 if I throw one folder to the left or right, it makes the other open apps/folders little tiny squares on the other side.    How can you get that functionally back?


Thinking of completely using Linux on my machine, how to do that?

Hi all, I have been thinking of using Ubuntu as my default operating system, because I really like Ubuntu, and I do not have anything necessary on my original Windows Operating System. How can I erase all of my Windows data and make my computer all Linux? I may do this quite soon, because I should give myself some time to learn the Linux command line, or I will be stuck on a operating system I do not know how to use. Although, I have heard that Linux command line isn't harder than Mac or Window
