great thats good to hear!  :smiley: sometimes a clean install of windows repair fixes errors while its trying to check the files. be sure you copy the settings.ini from the directory folder before you ever uninstall and drop that back in and overwrite the settings.ini after you reinstall that will keep your user settings for windows repair  :wink:

Make sure to run these commands in powershell as these are powershell commands not command prompt.
hmm first i want to see the registry key that will actually disable cortana if you can run this command and post what it outputs
Code: [Select]
Get-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search'if it has a red error saying it does not exist no worries just means you have never made a registry tweak to disable cortana
now this command will show me all of cortana's search prefs
Code: [Select]
Get-ItemProperty -Path 'HKCU:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search'If everything checks out with those keys then my next suggestion would be to run this command
Code: [Select]
$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Windows.Cortana).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"
if that command does not work try this one
Code: [Select]
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -Verbose}

I'm going to test this right away i believe i may have a work around for this issue

I'm talking to Shane as i type this what antivirus are you using it may be conflicting with the update go ahead and temporarily disable it for 5 min as you update the program and see if it works.

you should be able to upgrade to 4.0.1

no worries  :smiley: I know which repair did it now i was testing windows repair earlier today and found it. the repair was the volume shadow copy service that halted until you chose yes or no to continue.

Hi Scott,
here is a link to the main website where you can view the licensing.
I've also uploaded a snapshot and highlighted a key point and underlined it for you
it states that pro licences are valid per major version.
You still have your pro version with the pro features of version 3 , version 4 is a major version update so only the pro features of version 4 are locked but can be unlocked at a discounted price.

if you have any other concerns in this link you will see an email for the tweaking's customer support.
take care,


found out what you are talking about is the vss repair it will halt on a yes no it happens in normal mode ive noticed but not in safe mode.

alright so right now i'm turning on my windows 7 virtual machine and ill run and test this to figure out what is happening ill make a video for Shane to review as well and see if i can duplicate everything that has happened so right now what has been reported is slow startup speeds and freezing in the reboots even in safemode.

yes that is a false positive unfortunately even though Shane has his programs time stamped with a valid digital cert i believe its even done with comodo rsa certs. anyways antivirus's like to flag programs as a generic that's the first i've seen as a trojan dropper lol. it's safe just click ignore or submit to your av for analysis. it should come back as okay.   

wait what? can you get a snap shot of that i'm not understanding. Are you talking about user account control popping up? or are you talking about in the actual cmd prompt window when the repairs are running?

looks like the repair stopped go ahead and skip that repair for now try running the other repairs. reboot the computer and try running that single repair again these repairs are automated so if a repair stalls it won't complete any other repairs till that cmd window closes but since you said 0 cpu usage and 0 hdd read and write it is safe to say that the command has stopped running.

alright so Shane has been investigating this and he fully explained this to me so what is going on is any time the registry is touched it does not matter if it is set back to default or modified MS has set the apps to restore settings to defaults. It's been frustrating me.   :teeth:

I'm now confused you asked about permission not file type's

how do you want your permissions set on that drive?

alright sometimes reading is harder than a picture guide so i went ahead and made a picture guide on changing permission this is not recommended for your C drive. just on other data storage drives.

sticky mess changing disks almost guarantee you will lose files that are not backed up because changing disk from dynamic will wipe that whole partition clean.

I agree

I am of the opinion that most third party AVs are basically a protection racket, based on escalating users' fear. They all seem to have embarked on "an arms race" to add as many features as possible to their security suites to convince users of their efficacy.
Any of my customers that get malware infected on their computer after i clean it up And they ask me what antivirus they should use i tell them windows 10 comes pre loaded with an amazing antivirus tool. i recommend them to run adwcleaner. twice in safe mode then if the second scan comes up with nothing. usually means it's clean but after that if they still feel like they are infected i tell them click start> settings gear>update & security>windows defender> scan offline. it will reboot your computer into a basic state only enough to run windows defender and scan objects so nothing can get in the way. that has saved me so much time teaching people that because it's one of the amazing features in 10 that you don't see or really hear about. ;)

Everything Else / some food for thought lol..

I always used windows defender and pretty much this article sums it up.

Feel free to leave your comments I enjoy reading the different opinions of antivirus programs.
