Love to play with Windows 11 and 10. Suggestion - Going for Registry change or system files edit then remember to take a backup or create a restore point before Starting.

  1. build stylish


    I don’t ordinarily comment but I gotta tell appreciate it for the post on this amazing one :D.

  2. This Virtual Store feature has cost me a lot in lost backups. I only trust a backup to work IF it can be accessed from another Windows computer on a secure backup drive.

    After seeing Windows Restore fail to do anything useful more times than I can count…I don’t use Windows backups.

    Pretty strange that the OS takes possession of my data and basically hides it with no warning that it is doing so. You might only find out what is going on when a computer fails and you need your data…and it is not really there.

  3. User Account Control
    When I click the User Account Control option on my system open the alert windows and ask me type administrator password and continue but does not accept any thing for password.
    Please help me for fix it this problem.

  4. The User Account Control has its good features, however it would be great if there was a way to disable it from popping up on specific programs. Where does the User Account Control validate a program as to accept it without the popup? This is a fix I’d like to see.
