    Recently I have been getting random shut downs (crashes), especially when playing simple Mahjongg type games. These crashes are now becoming more frequent and are extremely annoying. I tried to test the system using FurMark stress tester and it immediately crashed the system. The problem is...

No other action, such as picking a folder, was available. I find it frustrating that I set whatever folder I want for Downloads, I can my move Pictures...

    Can't ger rid of Onedrive on my PC

    I deleted Onedrive (or at least I thought I did) but now when I save a file to Documents it still goes to c: users/kgash/onedrive/documents instead of c:/users/kgash/documents. How can I change this behaviour. I no longer have onedrive.exe on my system. Thank you.

    Computer freezes when wake from sleep

    Well, since it appeared that the problem occurred after updating the graphics driver, I wondered if simply rolling back the driver. An less than a minute in Device Manager, I did that and the problem is fixed. I guess "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" should be applied to driver updates.

    Computer freezes when wake from sleep

    Thank you both for your suggestions. The build is very new; all drivers are up-to-date - as I have said, the problem started after I updated my Radeon Graphics Card. Also, I don't know what firmware Neemobeer is referring to. samK, I used msconfig to do a diagnostic boot but that didn't help.

I have to hit the reset button to restart...

    Thank you for your reply. As it turns out, my Windows password somehow got corrupted to the point where I couldn't even open Windows. I followed the instructions to create a new password and they worked great. Problem solved

    Thank you all for your useful replies. I have been working on this for almost a week (on and off because each of the computers on the net is used a lot and I don't have access to them).

    I have 4 PCs on my network, all running windows 10 (3 on 1803 and 1 on 1809). They are connected to a Netgear Dual Band router - 2 at 2.4 Ghz and 2 at 5 Ghz.

    Follow up: I waited a bit and restarted Windows and tried Mail again. It now opened with one of my accounts in the Welcome box. When I clicked go to inbox. I got back to the exact setup I had before we started.
