Hi When My computer boots the Notification Windows opens and it always shows several messages in the saying that you have new applications that can open this kind of file. I have no idea what files it's talking about since my computer is just booting up and only opening the normal software that it always opens. Second, when it does have a useful notification and it says Click Here to do this or that, clicking there never does anything. Today it said we need to reboot your computer to finalize required updates, click here to scheduled this! But as usual clicking there did nothing. I did go ahead and update, and I'm pleased to say that this time even though I saw that it was once again update in both my sound and camera software my sound actually still worked after it was done. Now for something weirder!!! Here's something that I've never seen before, I'd like to know if other people are seeing anything like this... Instead of the almost invisible driver update, this time my computer opened a Creative software install window! I looked just like it would if I put in the Creative software disk that came with my computer. Only it made all of the decisions for me as it worked through the process. It would not let me interrupt the process, I tried to select Cancel, at several windows but it just kept moving through the process, and I could not close the window from the task bar, I even opened Task Manager and it didn't show the Software Installation as an active task. When it finished doing my sound card install, it then did the same thing with my Microsoft web camera. It went through that install process step by step and then when done opened to camera interface showing all my camera settings and adjustments. In all my years of computing I've never seen this happen before! Has anyone else had this happen? Mike I also notice that Cortana now responds without any visual clues. Before when I talked to her she always opened the Window above her task bar and showed what I was saying in the task bar. Now when I ask her to play my music she says "Shuffling your music." or playing your music and does so but there is nor visual indication that she's there. I also notice that she will respond to Pause and Resume now, she wouldn't do that for me before.
