    Your computer has lost the lease to its IP address 2601:1c0:5702:9370::1 on the Net Card in Win10

    Continued observation has confirmed that the message is generated when DHCPv6 lease time (default one-hour) expires. Apparently the prior modem had a longer expiration, so the error rarely appeared. Expiration time setting in the new unit has been increased.

    Your computer has lost the lease to its IP address 2601:1c0:5702:9370::1 on the Net Card in Win10

    Printer was still powered up, but connected to a powered-down PC. Simple in-home Net connection. New modem/router (gateway) on same Comcast network and, one might assume, using the same addresses... If not, there were no prompts during install. The process was essentially auto configured...

    Your computer has lost the lease to its IP address 2601:1c0:5702:9370::1 on the Net Card in Win10

    Since installing a new modem/router (gateway for Comcast) two DHCPv6 errors, rarely seen earlier, have been appearing with some regularity... "Your computer has lost the lease to its IP address 2601:1c0:5702:9370::1 on the Network Card with network address 0xF46D043BC2BE." "Your computer was...

    Create Event Viewer ID

    Very fine. Problem was solved as outlined in my most recent post, but I have filed your script for future reference. Thanks for taking the time!

    Create Event Viewer ID

    Update, as of 12/5/15 Yes, these may be suspended processes. WHY they cause a lag is yet to be determined. Speculated causes of this annoyance are discussed in this article and its embedded links... https://superuser.com/questions/426947/slow-windows-desktop-keyboard-shortcuts/957210#957210...

    Lag when opening programs

    Update, as of 12/5/15 After considerable experimentation it appears that the lag will occur when a STORE or (system) SETTINGS app (Calculator, for example) or "store" itself is listed in Task Manager background processes. Kill the process, and the lag vanishes. When the app is actually...

    Update, as of 11/30/15 After considerable experimentation it appears that the lag will occur when a STORE app (Calculator, for example) or "store" itself is listed in Task Manager background processes. Kill the process, and the lag vanishes. When the app is actually running, it is listed...

    Create Event Viewer ID

    Humm, interesting thought, but I don't think it's an MS monitoring issue as there is no shortcut lag if clicked or tapped - only when a SC is executed via a keystroke. And when it's in that lag state it applies to shortcuts for all programs, stored-sourced or not. A batch file has been created...

    Create Event Viewer ID

    Thanks for the feedback. Tested the Firewall block; no effect. This BG process often kicks in after a SLEEP cycle. (The calculator is not being used, and hasn't been for days.) THAT I've dealt with. But when the calc BG process pops ups randomly during a session - for no apparent reason -...

    Create Event Viewer ID

    The object is to create a unique Event Viewer ID that appears when a specific background process starts - Windows 10 Calculator, for example. When calculator is in use, it is listed only in the Task Manager APPS area. However, when it's not running it randomly appears only as a background...

    AutoPlay non-functional

    Thanks for your feedback. It's not an issue of playing a CD or DVD. Both WMP and MPC do that just fine - if manually started. It's AUTOplay that isn't working with optical drives. Here's a bit more info... RESTORE DEFAULTS has been tested. This resets all to "choose a default." "Ask me...

    AutoPlay non-functional

    RESOLVED via a system rebuild. No clue as to why it was failing. Windows 10 PRO. AutoPlay isn't working in Windows 10. The SETTINGS|DEVICES menu has it turned ON. In Control Panel, it's turned on and configured to PLAY a CD. It's not disabled in the Group Policy editor. Neither of the two...

    Lag when opening programs

    Update, as of 9/23/15 Experimentation has shown that the lag appears even if CALCULATOR or STORE are not active in background processes. I have replaced the calculator with a simple program, and am running no apps from the store. Earlier, a reboot seemed to banish the lag, and sleep cycles...

    Lag when opening programs

    Update to the notes below... The problem returned on 9/18, despite STORE and CALCULATOR not running in the background. Something is interfering with background processes. Yet to be determined.

    Lag when opening programs

    Thanks for the effort BIGBEARJED... After extensive testing and discussion with MS support, a manager pinned down the problem. It's a bug. Most folks don't use keyboard shortcuts so they're not likely to encounter it. The lag occurs when STORE or CALCULATOR are running as a background...

    Lag when opening programs

    Click a program shortcut. The app launches immediately. Use shortcut keys and it takes four seconds. e.g. - Click the Quicken shortcut: immediate launch. Use the keyboard keys specified for that SC <alt|ctrl|Q>: program opens in four seconds. Why? This did not occur in Windows 7, 8 or 8.1, to...

    FTP access intermittent

    It's set to the passive default, but I'll toggle it the next time this occurs. As mentioned, it DOES work in the passive mode - when it pleases.

    FTP access intermittent

    Wouldn't respond (as above) to the shortcut in file explorer, but would to Windows built-in FTP basic client. After that was used, the file manager SC worked as it should. As noted, this is intermittent...don't know what disables it, am not certain of what restores it???? Windows 7 mainly.

    USB Flash Drive on Desktop

    Agreed. But there's no option to delete it (right-click menu) either under Desktop or the This PC trees. Interesting that the same drive, on the same machine, did not display in those places under previous Windows O/S.

    USB Flash Drive on Desktop

    Why does W10 File Explorer list a USB 3.0 flash drive on the Desktop? No other USB device or standard drive is there. Win 7 didn't include the stick on the Desktop. Don't recall seeing it there in 8/8.1 either. This flash drive appeared in those systems only under the usual MY COMPUTER (This...
