Back in the '70s, if I had told you that

a.) In the future you would carry a device which could track your every move,

b.) That you would willingly do so, and, furthermore,

c.) That you would pay for the privilege of doing so,

you would have called for the men with the butterfly nets.


And now we all act like "How the hell did that happen?"

We have met the enemy, and he is us.

Then you can delay feature updates supposedly for up to a year. (Windows Secrets says that it defers feature updates until Microsoft declares them "ready for business deployment," which typically occurs about four months after the Current Branch release.)

I started out with version 1607 last spring, but was given the 1703 Creator's Update almost right away. I made sure my C: drive was fully backed up, then I let 'er rip. Haven't had any problems with it. The new Fall update contains a number of security features, but I will let others be the guinea pigs for this one.
I am sorry to disagree, but even with the Pro version , it is very difficult to delay.

I have the Pro version, and even if I configure the upgrades to a further date, when I want to shutdown the offered choices do not include a delayed upgrade.
This happened yesterday: I had configured the new upgrade two days from now; after configuring I checked whether it was accepted, and it seemed Okay.
When I shutdown the machine I could only either accept an immediate upgrade or put on sleep which is what I did before shutting down for good.
This morning I had to lose fifteen minutes waiting for the upgrade to finish.

They really don't care what we want.

Default New malware

It seems a new malware is on the air.

The source is the FBI: it attacks essentially networks.
According to the FBI the source of this malware is located in PyongYang.

It tries to gain access to high-security machines.

It seems this new malware has two objectives:
- stealing highly critical data;
- extracting money.

Its name is "Hidden Cobra".

I noticed one or two websites which seem infected: when on VEF, if you click on some pictures nothing happens but you cannot download; if you want to be able to download you must click on the picture a new time and then all hell breaks loose.

If you are well protected try and see.

I do not know if this is the same malware but it is worrying.

If you must use win10, spybot anti-beacon blocks the POS from Dialing home...or out

Well, I have WinX Pro, and I have not as yet been offered the 1709 update. My wife's laptop (running WinX Home), on the other hand, was given that update last night while I was doing monthly maintenance on it. (She's not too computer-savvy, so she leaves the technical stuff to me.)

At first, 1709 refused to update (error code 0x8024a105), which gave me a chance to back it up, thankfully. I left it on overnight, and, finally, 1709 was in.

With the exception of the shortcut arrows reappearing and a "People" icon on the taskbar (both of which I got rid of), I haven't noticed any difference. Stay tuned...
