Regardless of whether or not he's right, telling everyone with concerns that they're a bunch of tinfoil hat wearing crazies, isn't going to win anyone over to his point of view.

I turned off Guest account, as there was not an option to delete it, and created a standard account with a password. I guess this time I did it! But... again: what's the difference between standard and guest account except from the password option???

Of course, I have some questions for WP, but I'll let them for later. There was a lot of bla bla bla from me these days.

Thank you!  :)

P.S. I'll be alert for BSOD.

Ed Bott: "No, Microsoft is not spying on you with Windows 10"

I do not seen any proof in the article that what he is saying is true either. His comments seem to be based, in his words, -
 (After carefully reading the Microsoft Services Agreement, the Windows license agreement (English, retail), and the Microsoft Privacy Statement carefully, I don't see anything that looks remotely like Big Brother.)

No, the Guest account does not have the option to add a password. That is why I suggest it be disabled.  Granted, a "regular person" using the guest account may be safe enough, however . . . Dangers of Guest Account in Windows XP/7 - Super User.

Most times, BSOD is the result of outdated drivers.  If it continues, we'll see if Satrow has time to take a look.  If not, I'll send you to Sysnative.com for assistance.

We can continue WinPatrol discussions in that forum since they may be helpful for others as well.

Hi, Panos.

Since there is no password associated with the Guest account, I suggest you disable it.  The "Dr Who's Friends" should be a limited account and password protected.  Guests would use that account.

Many of the errors were due to being disabled by MSConfig.  As to the printers, the Additions log shows two printers. 

Name: HP Color LaserJet CP4005
Name: Photosmart 5510 series

It could be that you are using generic printer drivers rather than HP drives. Do you have and use both printers?  Are they both working fine?  If so, you can ignore the Event Viewer errors.  Otherwise, you could go to the HP site and check for the most recent drivers for the printer(s).  Even though drivers can be rolled back, I still suggest creating a System Restore point if you do update the driver(s).  HP Printers - Download and Install Printer Driver and Software Via USB | HP® Customer Support

Good evening, Corrine.

The one printer is mine (5510), and the other one (LaserJet)  is the one I used at University. I added both using Add a Printer method, and via wi fi network. They both work fine. So, I will not do anything.

Now... Again with the accounts. It seems that I must create a standard account to have the option for a password. I cannot find such an option in Guest accounts.

Anyway, I installed WP. Again. :)

P.S. It's the third time in a week I got a BSOD. I thought that a Chinese memory stick I bought online was the reason, but it seems that it's not. If it happen again I will let you know. 

Corrine, thank you, once more!
I will see what else I can do, to ask for your help again.  ;)
