Hi Boggin. Happy New Year. Would the free version of Revo Uninstaller be helpful to Phototaker?

Hi Boggin, no, I do not have shortcuts to the individual games but I just happened to look and find them missing. On my wife's computer I installed Nexus Ultimate and have a games section that allows her to choose which game she wishes to play.

I am not into games as such but I did have the solitaire set just to have a break. The set has disappeared and I am wondering if the Fall Creator update did that. I did install the Winaero set on my wife's computer (I'm not daft!) and they are working ok.

Hello Boggin, is Winaero a legal source for the Solitaire games?

Hello Boggin, I have not yet given my son the Lenovo laptop as I have been setting up and copying the free files from it to install on the new ASUS laptop. Yesterday the 12th whilst installing the files there were 3 W10 updates available so I stopped to check on them installing on my wife's desktop, my desktop and the new laptop. I then continued with the install of the free programs.  Of course, as the Lenovo W10 Broker.exe and SystemSettings files were not active there was no indication of the latest updates being installed. Today, whilst continuing to install the free programs and nearly finishing them I listed the bought programs on the Lenovo in readiness to install those also. I had the Lenovo on during today and noticed there was a Notification saying click to see information about installed updates. There has been no such Notifications since the install of the Fall Creator update on the 19th of October even though the Lenovo has been on every day since. The once ghosted icons on the Notification panel were now active and I was able to check what updates had been installed and they were the same three installed yesterday on the other computers but these were installed today.  I powered down and Started up again three times and everything is back to normal. I also checked for the appcrashes that were part and parcel of the problem but all is clear. I can only put it down to the cumulative KB40534517 update installing data which rectified the problem. I shall now keep the Lenovo and give my son the new ASUS laptop as it stands as it will save me uninstalling all the bought programs on the Lenovo and installing them on the ASUS. I only hope his Christmas present to me involves more than a of pair of socks.  :thinking:

Hello Boggin, I have bought EaseUS Backup To Do Home 10.6. I thought it had to be connected to carry out auto backups. Would you say if it is possible to do manual Image backups then do so and disconnect the external HDD after each session. Thanks.

Hi Boggin, I am giving the laptop to my son as he was thinking of buying his daughter a laptop. I will give him all the info you gave me as I told him of the Broker.exe problem. As my wife bought me a combined birthday and Xmas present consisting of a new laptop with W10 Home I decided it would be easier to update that and so have installed the Fall Creator update (prior to that there were 8 updates to install first) without a hitch. I have also attached an external HDD to the laptop to enable system backups in case of future problems. Thank you for your help.

Thanks Boggin, I will try and digest all your info. As Broker.exe only deals with MS apps I have deleted all those possible to be left with about five that cannot be deleted and  most of those five I do not not use. I did this in the hope to narrow down the amount of MS apps to hopefully make it easier to track down the culprit/s. Last night I designed using a DTP program a troubleshooting layout to record the steps and the end result of such actions taken. I am now looking for a tea chest as an addition to the troubleshooting.  With a slot cut in the top it will become a swear box to hold the penalties.....

Hi Boggin, I tried to roll back to the previous version of W10 but was informed it could not be done so it appears I may have to go back to factory settings. Will this take me back to the earliest version of W10?  This laptop was originally W8.1 but I updated it to the free version of W10  four  days before the offer expired.  There is a Windows.old file on the computer but I gathered that it was a previous version of W10 after all this time.

Hello Boggin. It made no difference so I went back online and into safe mode whereupon updates were being installed. Partway through a message saying all update could not be installed appeared and appeared to roll back. When this had finished I checked the updated list and saw that only the security update had been reinstalled. I ran Belarc which said that all updates had been installed.  All my previous restore points were wiped out so have nothing to go to rollback to the previous version of W10.
