How To Stop / Remove Preinstall Files

Jul 14, 2015

I have signed up for nothing, nor agreed to anything (knowingly) but I am concerned that Win 7 updates are 'prepping' me for the win 10 upgrade.  Rather than MS having my interests in mind, I've been forced to scrutinize every update that is offered so I have turned Automatic Updates off.  I caught the KB 2952664 update and have hidden it, but I am wondering if there are other such "updates" out there that will force/nag me to "upgrade"?

MOV Files Suddenly Stop Working

Sep 23, 2015

Up until a few days ago I was able to import .MOV files from my iPhone 5 to my Windows 10 computer and play them with the default 'Films & TV' app. For some reason my computer now hates this file type. It wont play any audio unless its through the slow Quicktime media player, even vlc doesn't work. Also I edit these video with Sony Vegas Pro 13 and now whenever I drag them onto the timeline the video corrupts and screen freezes!!

Have HP Pavilion Dv5 running windows 10, I purchased a new HP Envy with Win 10 installed.I want to give DV5 to my step-daughter with Win 10 on it, and remove me from laptop and Win 10 completely. I have files stored on flash drives and OneDrive and have a Microsoft Account.

Installation :: Choosing (Keep Personal Files Only) Remove Installed Apps?

Jul 30, 2015

What I mean is, if I select to keep my personal files only, will the installed programs be removed completely from my hard drive, or will they be moved to the Windows.Old folder like what happens in Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 ?

Because I would like to have them in the Windows.Old folder in case I might need some of the files there, but I want the installation to be clean as well.

50GB Of System Files And 4gb Of Temp Files After Installation

Jul 29, 2015

I ended up using an extra 2 GB or so of hard drive space after the windows 10 install. I ran desk cleanup and removed the old windows files which was a lot. But wasn't Windows 10 supposed to free up space?

Prior to install the computer showed 241GB of 297GB used. Now it says 256GB of 297 used. And this is after windows 10 disk cleanup removed the old OS files which was something like 20GB.

Under storage use it shows

System and Reserved - 49.7 GB inside of which 42.1 GB is system files. Isn't this a lot? The rest of the 7GB under system and reserved is 3GB Virtual Memory, 3GB System Restore and 1.5GB Hibernation file

Apps and Games - 6.83 GB (I have no games and besides the stock apps, I might have just 5 apps installed chrome,vlc player, ytd, ccleaner and iTunes

Temp files - 3.98 GB and I always kept this clean with ccleaner prior to win 10 install but been scared to run it after the update because I'm waiting on more ccleaner updates to save from issues (heard some horror stories using ccleaner on win 10)

One Drive - 51 GB used - I saved movies now this is saved in the cloud not on my hard drive right?

Background. This computer I just got a week ago. I was restored back to factory 8.0 and I than updated to 8.1 and than updated to Windows 10.

Can't Stop PC From Sleeping

Dec 14, 2015

I'm on the latest Insider build. I don't want my PC to sleep nor the monitors to sleep nor the hard drives. Unlike most other issues with sleep and Win10, my problem isn't waking it up but keeping it awake.

Microsoft seem to have scattered the sleep options all over the place. I methodically worked my way round, starting in Settings where I can quite simply select no sleep for both the computer and the monitors. Simple? Nope. I found relevant settings in these places:

Right click desktop and choose display settings
Also from display settings choose advance power settings
Control Panel Power Settings
Change Plan settings

Maybe these are all links to the same settings but in any event whichever route I take, the PC still sleeps or the monitors still turn off or both. Or the screen saver kicks in.

I wonder if the UEFI bios is over-riding Windows? God knows but how can I keep my PC awake overnight

My internet is really slow and would take way to long to re-download and i wont have enough space because all my files are there i cant find them anywhere.

How To Stop Upgrade Popups

Nov 26, 2015

At the urging of the popups from MS urging me to upgrade to Windows 10 ads I ran the compatibility test the results of which assured me that my computer was compatible with Windows 10. I then upgraded and started using Windows 10. I had all sorts of problems after that. I contacted the manufacturer of my system (DELL) and they told me that they were not supporting my system with drivers for Windows 10 and that I needed to pay a fee to their tech support for restoring my system back to Windows 7 for a stiff charge. The DELL tech spent hours using Remote Assist and the telephone to restore Windows 7. After restoring Windows 7 I had lost a lot of important documents and spent hours solving all sorts of remaining problems. I now have Windows 7 back and running well but I am constantly subjected to those annoying pop ups urging me to download and install the Windows 10 upgrade. How do I get rid of those?

My current system -
Hardware: DELL Studio XPS 435 MT
OS: Windows Home Premium 7 SP1

How To Stop Reminder Popups

Aug 5, 2015

OK. So I downloaded and installed Win 10. I found it to be very unstable on my laptop, freezing, going to a black screen, etc. So I rolled back to Win 7. However I now get a popup every 10-15 minutes encouraging me to move to Win 10.

I'm not ready to do that yet (again). I want to wait a few months until they have had a chance to resolve all the issues that have been found. So how do I let them know to stop the popups? I will upgrade when I am ready to do so.
