Its not getting an incorrect v6 address and timing out on that is it? Had problems till I turned it off on my network with windows hanging onto the ipv6 internet address even after the connection went down and back up and the prefix had changed. Still wanted to use the old one which was now on someone elses connection.

For the WLAN issue, I would uninstall the wireless network adapter from within Device Manager and install compatible drivers. Make sure the WLAN Autoconfig service is running. With Windows 8.1/10 WLAN is best controlled by the OS, so uninstall any third party utility software.

 

 

For Teamviewer/LAN access related issues I would go into Windows Firewall Advanced Security (wf.msc) and reset all existing firewall rules using "restore default policy" on the right. Then re-create whatever custom rules you had.

given it does it with/without the firewall on i dont think its related to that.

I've had Win10 for the last 6 months.

 

It's no better or worse than 7, 8, 8.1.  Apart from then unfscked the Start Menu.

 

Oh and that notifications window thing is nice.

 

 

 

Otherwise, they're all the same.  Except I believe Windows 10 is spying on me.  I dunno, I haven't checked.

Got a call from my mum last week something about could not access the calendar and everything looked different.

Anyway I sat down with her this week to take a look. Yep win 10 upgrade. She had been operating it for a week so that was very positive. : ).The calendar issue was Gmail related and she figured that one out earlier whatever it was.

She raised some concerns about privacy because it was 'throwing files and documents up everywhere'. Ok this was various documents being screen and content displayed on the start menu. I showed how to right click unpin those.

The machine was 7 so all of the live tiles and other things were new. Anyway then she unpinned everything I mean everything and that reduced the start area to the left hand side. Then she went to the apps list noticed candy crush there and uninstalled it. There was no progress indication and the start menu did not refesh automatically. I explained to reopen the menu.

There were four identical notifications for WiFi sense. I'm fairly sure WiFi was disabled on this machine and the 10 upgrade enabled it. I disabled all the sense wifi control stuff and disabled the wifi adaptor again.

Office 2003 is still working happily so far.

Overall it was a very very successful automated upgrade.

If there are any processes which enable wifi as part of the 10 upgrade well I think that is a very bad idea. Overall very very happy there are no issues.

You disabled the P2P distribution of Windows 10 updates to other Windows users?

Yeah disabled a bunch of stuff in the updates and privacy options.

Also disabled Cortana, no particular prejudice against it but I had some concern it would pop up at odd times etc. Impulse decision I might reconsider that part.

Windows 10 had settled down quite nicely for me then a forced 'update' a few weeks back started off the whole "I'm gonna completely freeze at a random point between 30 seconds and 10 minutes" saga all over again. I'm back to using the computer as little as possible and using my Android devices as much as I can. Once I perceive Android as a fully fledged OS that'll be the end of Microsoft OS's for me.

At last, after months of having Windows 10 on my HP EliteBook, I managed to get the fingerprint reader working, by using Lenovo drivers. Damn companies that don't use standard drivers.

Can you put this feedback in the Feedback Hub (and mention something unique in there so I can find it and turn it into a bug) HP should be loading these drivers into Windows Update

As I have tried Windows 10 on this PC before I got reactivated automatically through something called 'Digital Entitlement' when I re-installed Win 10.   They must take a snapshot of all the hardware and generate a unique identifier for that PC.    So well done Microsoft, product activation has come a long way.

I am looking forward to being able to put the Anniversary update on my machines, I have the latest insider build on my Surface and it is running very well indeed.
