I have a problem with my work's computer.

I'm trying to run a work application which it crashes with the following error when trying to do some specific actions:

microsoft.practices.unity.resolutionfailedexception occurred

I don't have the same problem with my home computer.

The IT person thinks that it is a region issue, but I have the same settings on both the computers so I don't think so.

Is it something anyone can help?

Time for a new topic. :)

I am helping a lady who recently bought a new computer. She signed in for a first time with a Microsoft account, and we all know that by default Windows takes the first 5 characters of the email used to name the User folder in C.

If she was signed in with a local account, she could put any name she wanted and then move to a Microsoft account with that name.

But what is happening now?

I had that problem of renaming my User folder some years ago and it was a pain.

Now, from what I read, I see that this could help, but I am not sure, and if you have any advice I would appreciate.

1. Create a new local account with admin privileges and the name she wants.
2. Sign in with that account.
3. Go to the Microsoft account and copy Documents, Pictures, Videos and AppData.
4. Paste the above to the new account.
5. Delete the Microsoft account.
6. Sign in with a Microsoft account, keeping the name she already has for the new account.

It is risky and I am not sure if it works.

What do you say?


LandzDown Lounge / The biggest Greek composer dies today
« on: September 02, 2021, 02:56:27 PM »
Mikis Theodorakis, the biggest Greek composer ever, died today, at the age of 96.

As a Music teacher, I arranged many of his songs/instrumentals for children's chorus and orchestra.


From his work: (instrumental ) (this is from a concert just after the fall of dictatorship and restoration of democracy in Greece, 1974. The song is a prayer for justice) (with Anthony Quinn - Zorbas)

And many many other...


Hello to the best forum in the whole Web!   :)

The question is: How do I remove or change the PIN I use for sign-in Windows?

I created a PIN when the option was still there in Sign-in Settings, and I sign-in Windows with that, instead of using the Microsoft account's password.

Now, the only option in Settings is Windows Hello PIN, and it is unavailable (see attachment).

I tried to add in the registry the following value, but nothing happens.

Security Software Programs / Windows Defender scheduled scan
« on: July 03, 2021, 08:03:56 AM »

Ever few days, Windows Defender gets that yellow warning triangle, that a scan is needed. Is there a way to do that by itself like Malwarebytes does every day?

Should I set it my self as a scheduled task or is there a setting I can enable for that?

I have a problem and need your magic advice.  :)

Suddenly, without any reason, three Chinese dialects appeared in keyboard language list. No sign of them in languages in Settings.

I am searching about it, but didn't find any solution yet...

I'm getting MBAM alerts while surfing in sites I usually visit using Pale Moon. Does anyone have the same issue today?

Meet & Greet! / Greetings to Greeks

"The entire world will turn Greek to mark Greeceā€™s bicentennial, celebrated on March 25, 2021, commemorating 200 years since the declaration of its War of Independence."


Flash Player EOL was reached by the end of 2020. That means that it is no longer supported for security or other updates. As I understand, nothing that was using it works now. So, all those flash games and applications are dead too? I thought it would be a user's choice, using the expired flash player or not. I was asked today about some educational flash games and I wonder if there is an instant solution for this.

LandzDown Lounge / The last poster is the winner
« on: October 18, 2020, 05:04:55 PM »
This is a new game.

We say whatever comes to our minds. The last poster, with more than 10 posts in the thread, by the end of each month, will be the winner.

One of the administrators will announce the prize.  ;)

The prize could be anything! E.g. A dedicated song, a BRAVO gif, a new computer etc.

Corrine? What do you say? Can we start the October's competition?
