Re: whats starting up in the background

Then perhaps its something in your Startup menu.

Checking to see if it still occurs in a clean boot may ID what is causing the glitch.

Re: Skype update lost account.

Can you not contact MS with a complaint and ask for reimbursement or your new account credited with what you had on your old account ?

Just reading back through your thread, when you get that WMI error in Event Viewer, do you also always get another with it ?

Re: An urgent warning to all motorists

I've just phoned one of my sons after reading this and he knew all about it and said that it had been the case for at least the last 17yrs.

I didn't know about it as the last car I had was in '95.

Re: windows update

Perhaps because of its add-ons - Edge doesn't have any extensions.

Try resetting FF or running it without add-ons. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/reset-preferences-fix-problems

I only use IE in Win 10 and don't like Edge.

You can do a repair install which is less drastic than a clean install as it doesn't affect your personal stuff or installed programs, but am I to understand that the updates are now installing ?

I don't know anything about Spywareblaster but IE and Edge are part of Windows so you won't see them in the Start menu.

Occasionally when I've done a repair install, it has removed the IE icon...

Re: Which Broadband provider ?

You can pay up front for your TT rental as well which will give you a discount, but I think it's only for 12 months whereas a contract can be for 18 months - 2yrs.

You could opt to do a repair install of 1607 or 1709.
