If you are nostalgic for the old DOS games of the late 1980's and 90's, you can waste some time here

I remembered ... an electronic game my cousin played all the time and he didn't want me to touch it, as I was the baby of the company.  :)

BUT: this topic is for ... killing your time, not wasting it. When you don't want to think about anything, just sit and stare at the computer, without any mental activity, no plan, no action at all... I have such moments. Don't you;  ;)

This is another example: move the cursor on each letter, enjoy the color animation and listen ... the melody! (Volume on, again).

OK. You can kill your time trying to make this wheel go round and round and round. For how long can you do this? (Turn the volume on, to hear the wheel)

Also, try this. Open Task Manager > Under the Details tab, locate dllhost.exe process, right-click on it and select End task. Now see if you can do what you wanted to do.

That (source from Corrine's post above) solved the problem!!! So simple! Thank you!  :)

Moving files and folders, renaming a folder, deleting a folder, restoring a folder... Any action including a folder. Of course every file of any folder is closed, and nothing is opened in another program... I restart the computer, make ONLY ONE action (e.g. renaming the folder) and then I can't move it in another location. I have to restart again. It's probably an old problem (I remember it somewhere in April, perhaps in March), but then I didn't pay attention. Now I have many important files and folders that need tiding and I can't do what I want.

... Another problem here from me... And it's very very annoying!

Every time I'm trying to make something with a folder, I get the message that the action cannot be completed, as the folder is opened in another program. The problem is fixed, only with a restart, but: only one action can be done after a restart!


I have two files and I want to move them in a folder. I get the message above. I restart the computer, and then, one of the two files gets into the folder. I'm trying to move the other one, I get the message. I restart the computer, and the second folder moves into the folder. I'm trying to rename the folder, I get the message! I restart the computer, and I can rename the folder!

I tried several things before decide to write about it here (, but nothing seems to fix the problem! I noticed this issue a couple of months ago, but I didn't pay attention. Now I see that it's really a problem... Any suggestions?

OK! Today the free disk space is 703gb, so it started going down. And the Windows.old folder is 0gb, so I guess the increasing of the free space was due to the old Windows folder removal. Thanks again. :)

OUPS! I just noticed where I posted this. It should be in Computers questions and solutions. I'm sorry.  :-[

I don't think you have anything to worry about   ;)

I think Windows 10 now removes the Windows 10 old backup folder automatically after your rollback period has ended. It used to be 30 days to rollback to the previous version, but it was changed to 10 days. That would be about the size of the old file around 10GB.

Thank you, winchester and techie. I have no intention to make a backup right now.  Not even to break it. :)
But what it concerned me was that every day the amount of the free space was going up, 2, 3... gb. (It was 694 I think, and now is 705gb). No increasing today.

Thanks, Corrine.

The update was completed two-three weeks before the disk cleaning. I made no changes anywhere, and there are no cleaners in my computer. I hope that nothing important is being deleted.

Is it normal if my C free space is increasing? OK, I ran the clean disk utility last week, but only some MB were deleted. During a week I have 10GB extra free space. Not at once. Day by day.

Forever In Our Hearts / Wings of a Butterfly...
« on: May 26, 2018, 08:25:11 AM »
In the Orthodox faith and tradition, today is one of the two Saturdays of the year dedicated to the souls of the fallen. We remember and pray for those who left us. Surely there are many people from different countries and cultures in this forum, but I think that most of us share similar thoughts about our beloved persons they have gone. For the LzD's fallen heroes, and for all those fallen ones we have in our mind,

Wings of a Butterfly

As I was walking deep in sorrow thinking about the times we shared
A butterfly danced round me, a white cloud in the evening air
And I knew that your soul was finally home and free
But it felt like a blessing, a message from you to me

Now you can fly, now you can soar
So high above this world where troubles are no more
The time has come to say goodbye
And let your soul go to heaven on the wings of a butterfly

Just a few days after they called us to a church to pray
Loved ones gathered round you to bless and send you on your way
And as I got up to speak, it suddenly caught my eye
White wings against the window, a beautiful butterfly...

Now you can fly, now you can soar
So high above this world where troubles are no more
This love of ours will never die
So let your soul go to heaven on the wings of a butterfly
One day we'll meet again in heaven and we'll fly like that butterfly

A Greek granny enters the stadium, during the training session, to complain about the noise. Who can blame her? :)

I didn't know where to post this video, so here is a new topic.  ;)

Children try Greek food.

P.S. I never ate tyropitakia with cherries!
Also, I love mousakka.

Have you got this update (KB4093112) without problems?

I had to apply the solution above to let it finally installed in five computers (colleagues and family), although it seems that different solutions can also be applied.

The symptoms were not the same at all computers, but the result was the same: Update failed to install.

Symptoms I noticed:

> Task Host Window issue.

> Updates status: checking for upates all the time.

> Updates awaiting for a restart, and after the restart: Update failed.

> Update's installation stopped at 70%.
