    Getting Rid of Win10 flying Window on Task Bar

    I finally decided just to hide it. It doesn't seem to eat anything, so it can stay there until I reinstall 7 or another OS. Probably the latter.

    Getting Rid of Win10 flying Window on Task Bar

    Actually, I wanted to try it! I tried it and it was a total waste of time and could be classified as a security breech, so I loaded my old win7 from an image backup, but I'd made it while that idiot flying window was on the task bar. How was I to know that I'd have to work over an hour to remove...

    How would you rate Windows 7

    I would agree that win7, though not perfect, is M$ best system to date. I've tried Win 10 and will be converting all of my machines to LInux. Of course, 7 will be good til 2020, so I'm not rushing.

    Getting Rid of Win10 flying Window on Task Bar

    I tried Windows 10. I found it very trying. I reloaded Win 7 but that backup had the flying window on the task bar asking me to reserve my free win10. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of it? I am NOT going there again.

    Windows cannot access....

    I was able to get a veracrypt encrypted file on Win 10 to share across the entire network, however, when I rebooted, it would no longer share. So far, based on the veracrypt forum, I don't think anyone as made it work on Win 10. I have discovered other problems with other third party packages...

    Windows cannot access....

    I want an encryption product, with no back doors, that produces shareable virtual drives to my LAN. You say there is no such beast, which I will disagree with on the issue of back doors. Windows does readily communicate to Microsoft, but if I hand you one of my encrypted drives the chance of you...

    Yes, I will look for a veracrypt forum. Thanx for that suggestion. Sure can't hurt!

    Windows cannot access....

    I don't think I need to uninstall veracrypt. Drives not encrypted are readily accessible from win7 to win10. I have multiple terabytes of encrypted data. Uninstalling the encryption software and un-encrypting the data would take weeks! Not that I'm willing to have unencrypted drives on my...

    Windows cannot access....

    I really don't want to live in an IP4 world. The limitations are obvious, but I don't t live with my drives unencrypted. What I need is a viable solution. Truecrypt was a gold standard for years, and veracrypt seems to the the obvious successor. I want a product that has no back doors, and seems...

    Windows cannot access....

    I would have done that, but I did not realize that it was truecrypt, now veracrypt, that was causing the problem. Most of my drives are encrypted and it was not until I tried accessing an unencrypted drive that I realized the the distinction. In never occured to me that windows 10 could not...

    Windows cannot access....

    I'm abandoning this thread. I've identified the problem as being a veracrypt incompatibility and should probably be posted as such. Thanks for all the help, as it did get some of my problems resolved.

    Windows cannot access....

    I can ping the 192 IP. External IP is via a VPN on a shared IP which will not answer a ping. To recap: W10 can see and access files on W7. W7 can see W10 but gets an error stating: Windows cannot access \\w10\Hold contact admin....

    Windows cannot access....

    The offending laptop has NO credentials. I think the functional devices are using homegroup to connect, but I'm not sure. I don't know what a WX address is.

    Also a home group is enabled and joined.

    Windows cannot access....

    That's how it looks. And don't forget that two other win 7 machines can access the win 10 machine with no problem. The problem must be on the laptop win 7 machine, which was working fine, and still can access the win 7 machines.
