    Microsoft Planning to Push Out End of Support Notifications

    Alright, I have to say, I am impressed with myself! I installed Win 10 on my wife's Win 7 computer without a hitch! I waited a bit to post here just to be sure everything went smoothly. So far, so good. I did some research here in the Windows Forums. In the "Windows 10 Upgrade and Installation"...

    Microsoft Planning to Push Out End of Support Notifications

    Just to update, close this discussion and maybe give others a "heads up" ... In trying to do the 7 to 10 upgrade, I learned if your windows 7 version is dated before, I believe April of 2013, it is not available for the upgrade. So, I guess we'll again be shopping for a different computer. I...

    Microsoft Planning to Push Out End of Support Notifications

    I never received an answer to the lingering question of how much of a hassle is the 7 to 10 transition going to be? Will everything remain or do I need to back up all my files? What do I need to save and what will survive the change? This is the biggest worry I have. I don't want the machine...

    Microsoft Planning to Push Out End of Support Notifications

It has 7gb of RAM and currently has Win 7 Pro installed. It has an Intel i5-2400 CPU@3.10GHz. It is a 64-bit OS with an activated...

    Microsoft Planning to Push Out End of Support Notifications

    My other (the wife's) machine is Win 7. Got it before I got this one, which was 7 upgraded to 10 Pro .... How much pain will it be to upgrade it to 10? I hear, a lot of people doing this. How much memory is sufficient for 10? I have 8gb in mine and that is the max the motherboard is built for.

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    Alright done ... I went to "import bookmarks from other browsers" and then, "Import from IE" (Command phrasing may not be exact) as all of my Favorites from day one from my XP machine were in previous versions of IE. The only two that imported were the two Russian links. So, I immediately...

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    What steps do I need to take to "Audit" my Google account? For that matter, if necessary, what would I need to do to "Wipe it out"? because, when I did the reinstall, all of my settings were still current.

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    Success !!! But, these two links still remain on the favorites bar, along with the rest I had installed there … I am assuming, they are part of the Trojan problem. I will leave Chrome alone for now ... seeking proper removal so as to not start this all over again. The Walmart one is one of mine...

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    First, what I was able to obtain typing powershell in the search box and then pasting the command in # 11. I had to copy/paste from the window. It did not create a file on the desktop. Windows PowerShell Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. PS C:\Users\Optiplex>...

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    Thank you for your patience and help. First, I will need steps/instruction to do a "Screenshot of the block screen". I have never done this. Next, what do you mean by a "powershell prompt"? Also, By "upload the policy.txt", do you mean to attach the file or, by some other means? It may take me...

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    Okay, so, I got as far as "and click apply". back in Explorer I entered GroupPolicy in the search bar. several entries came up with GroupPolicy in them. The top one (a folder) was by itself (GroupPolicy) with no extension so, I right clicked and clicked Rename and renamed it GroupPolicy.old …...

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    Does either have a "Free" version? I have used the likes of Avira and AVG in the past. I am on a limited income so, I don't have the option of just throwing money at something … lol.

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    Neemobeer, thank you … Will try when I have more time to mess with it. What are your thoughts on a different AV?

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    Thank you for your prompt responses … livix07, I had Malwarebytes on my previous XP machine. I never considered putting it on this one because, I am not that comfortable with how intrusive it can be with removing things. I will consider this. What AV would you suggest trying? Neemobeer, hello...

    Windows 10 "Group Administrator" ???

    I recently uninstalled Google Chrome due to getting a "Trojan" or two while searching for a "File managing" program today. This "Trojan" would pop up after having Chrome open for a few minutes stating I had to call a number (1 844 501-5384) to talk to a Microsoft representative to resolve the...
