Web News / Windows 10 Version 1909
« on: October 19, 2019, 07:13:23 PM »
For Microsoft’s customers, it means that Windows 10 version 1909 will be delivered as a cumulative update, and not as a feature update. Cumulative updates are far more easily, (potentially) non-destructively, and more quickly installed than are feature updates. Much less can go wrong. And that’s a good thing.

We tried our best to continue COU but it was time to let her go, so thanks to all for your support over the years it was very much appreciated.

Triple Helix confirmed CoU is now discontinued as of Thursday.

Just a warning for anyone using this software.


HTNovo has retracted the original report of a ban:

    CCleaner is not in any Microsoft Blacklist and there are no Blacklists regarding other domains in the official Microsoft forums At the bottom

Sure sounds like a speaker problem ...

but I am dealing with a problem with my hand right now, so I can't remove the two specific screws. The screw driver can't remove them and I can't try the specific actions. And of course I won't give the computer to a technician so...

It's not that difficult to replace them, but you have to be able to open the case  ;)

[snip]   Especially when the volume is high   [/snip]

Is there much/any "noise" on a low volume?  Does the noise get louder/more noticeable as the volume goes up?  Crackling sounds during audio playback could be a sign of blown speakers.

Do you have headphones you can plug in?  If there is no noise present, that would indicate a speaker issue.  Speakers are a relatively simple and inexpensive repair.  If the problem is caused by the audio chipset you’d hear the crackling noise in both headphones and speakers.

plodr ... confirmation for you

The last time I had an issue with it was when NoScript wasn't seeing the domain. Once that domain was allowed, it worked.

The sky is crying, goodbye my dear friend.

You took a chance on me, I hope you never regretted that.  For you, I changed my username from winchester73thegunthatwonthewest ...  ;)

I still remember that fateful day, on the phone with you, logged into the renegade chat room, trying to communicate plans and sort things out with everyone, saying some ugly but necessary things (still feel badly about what I said to normmork), then turning off the lights and bringing out the flag. We all landed on our feet at LzD, hope we made you proud during your dark days.  You had made your peace with your health the last time we spoke.

I’ve thought often of the father/daughter piece you wrote for Megan at voiceofthepublic ... it’s timely now that my own daughter is about the get married.

One last time ... "What are you arguing with me for, I ain't got a lick of sense."

See you on the other side Jerry.

Going a bit off topic but Microsoft Security Essentials is available for Windows 7 users and I wonder what will happen when Windows 7 reaches EoL

If memory serves, Windows Defender on Windows 7 is an antimalware product only.
