    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...

    Windows cannot access....

    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.

    Windows cannot access....

    My two other win 7 machines are having no problem viewing and accessing the win10 machine, which is why I'm at a loss. It is set to private.

    Windows cannot access....

    One laptop on my network can see the Win10 machine but gets the do not have permission to access error message when trying to connect to any of the shared folders. This computer can see all others on the network and access them, except for the Win10 machine, which other computers can see and...

    File sharing 10 to 7

    Veracrypt solved that problem. Thank you!

    File sharing 10 to 7

    Yes, that precise one, and it you really believe that it was proved to not work, I have a bridge I could sell you. It is out of date though, and no longer supported. The wiki does point to some newer ones. Thank you for that.

    File sharing 10 to 7

    The first three days of Win10 were good, then an update and a reboot and windows 7 can no longer access shared files on the Win10 machine. Files that were shared somehow magically come up as shared even though they have not been shared this time or may NOT even be mounted. Not that it matters...
