I'd guess that's a fault in the 'resume from hibernated' (S4) state. To test that you could change the power settings to only sleep (S3) for a week or two and see if it still happens.

I found some support threads about similar problems appearing with release 1903 on some makes of computer.

I've typically had it set to download and tell me when installing updates so I can say yes or no myself. On this new machine I think the default is to automatically load and install, and I'll have to go set my preferences.

On another note, this note about ransomware is something to take note of. I don't see a thread dedicated to these threats (in my traced threads, at any rate). Maybe it's time for one of those.

Had a frustrating problem with Windows 10 Defender over the weekend - it switched itself off and I could not enable it despite carrying out all of the suggested fixes. Eventually last night I did a check for windows updates and found that there was an update for Defender pending, but would not install. After power-up this evening I tried windows update again, this time it installed together with another Defender update and is now enabled itself again!

I had backed up all of my data intending to do a Windows 10 repair!

I have two monitors, and twice in the last week I've come in after the computer was supposed to sleep and when I jostle the mouse one monitor is normal and the main one has a blue screen with a message and a QR code to link to the topic. The message beside the code says Stop Code: Faulty Hardware Corrupted Page.

It seems to need to go through and update all of my hardware drivers. I have a lot of old hardware hooked up, but I have a new keyboard and it seems to be a casualty of this shutdown, I have to unplug then replug the USB cable to get it going again. I always keep a spare keyboard handy anyway (this is a specialized typist's keyboard, not the usual cheapie that comes with the computer).

The former version of Windows 10 is being replaced with stuff being rolled out now. Here's more information:

Microsoft patches two zero-days in massive September 2019 Patch Tuesday

Microsoft's September 2019 Patch Tuesday comes with 80 fixes, 17 of which are for critical bugs.

Microsoft has published today 80 security fixes across 15 products and services, as part of the company's monthly batch of security updates, known as Patch Tuesday.

Of the 80 vulnerabilities patched today, two are so-called zero-days -- security flaws that had been exploited in the wild before Microsoft released fixes.

TWO ZERO-DAYS
The two zero-days are CVE-2019-1214 and CVE-2019-1215. Both are elevation of privilege (EoP) vulnerabilities. These types of vulnerabilities are usually exploited by malware to gain the ability to run malicious code with administrator privileges on (previously) infected hosts.

The first bug, CVE-2019-1214, is an EoP in the Windows Common Log File System (CLFS) driver. The second, CVE-2019-1215, impacts the ws2ifsl.sys (Winsock) service.

As usual, Microsoft didn't reveal any details of how the two bugs were being exploited in the wild, only acknowledging a security researcher from Qihoo 360 Vulcan Team with discovering the first.

NEW RDP VULNERABILITIES
All in all, this month's Patch Tuesday is as bulky as all the Patch Tuesday releases have been in recent months, which have regularly ballooned at over 70 fixed bugs on a regular basis.

Also just like in recent months, Microsoft patched remote code execution bugs in the Remote Desktop Protocol. This month, there have been only two -- CVE-2019-1290 and CVE-2019-1291.

Both bugs were discovered by Microsoft's internal team, and unlike the BlueKeep and DejaBlue vulnerabilities disclosed in May and August, Microsoft didn't say if these two could be abused to create self-spreading wormable malware/exploits.

NON-MICROSOFT SECURITY UPDATES
Since the Microsoft Patch Tuesday is also the day when other vendors release security patches, system administrators may also want to install patches released today by Adobe and SAP.

More in-depth information on today's Patch Tuesday updates is available on Microsoft's official Security Update Guide portal. Readers can also check out the table embedded below, this Patch Tuesday report generated by ZDNet, or this one, put together by Trend Micro.


This is followed by an extensive list of vulnerabilities.

You don't need to take it offline, but you do need to click past that and use your own logon information. That has been something with Microsoft for probably the last 15 years, and they're trying very hard to channel you into their network.

I have discussed an annoying issue with a tech friend. Windows may ask you to sign in with a Microsoft account. To avoid this, when the screen comes up asking for personal or business, Take the machine off line and it will assign the owner name "used" for you. You can then [at the next step] plug your internet cable back in and proceed.

Our Fujitsu Esprimo laptop I only upgraded to windows 10 to see if it would run on that ancient machine, which it does, although audio crackles badly. I found a Vista driver which is supposed to work with the Esprimo which was an improvement, but when we get back from our holiday I'll look for the Vista drivers disc that came in the box. Failing that, I'll reinstall Windows 7 and stick with last updates available, it only gets used on holiday so not important.

Depending on the machine and the flavor of the previous system, it has taken anywhere from 90 minutes to 4 hours. The fastest was from W7 Pro using as flash drive.

The tool gives you the option of a download to either a DVD or a USB device. Personally, I like the flash drive if I am not installing directly.

The worst error I have made was not having the machine hooked to the internet while doing the upgrade. That cost me the time to revert to W7, then reinstall W10 Pro. I do like the feature that the media automatically selects the version you get for the upgrade.

Yes, I have upgraded to W10 possibly 10 times now, including our 2005 Fujitsu Esprimo laptop which shipped with Vista. I also backtracked to W7 a couple of times as well - because I could. Easiest method I found was from usb stick, then you don't need up to 4 hours by your PC.

OK, w10 has had several years to get rid of its teething pains. BUT Microsoft is discontinuing support for W7 this coming January. DO NOT PANIC!!! You can still get W10 for free from Microsoft.

Just enter "download Windows 10" into your search engine and look for the link that says "Media creation tool." Follow the instructions and you should have no trouble. I've done 8 machines this week, including machines that were password protected. [I did not have the passwords.] If your machine has a valid key, enter it if you are asked for it. I only had one ask me and, after I entered it, everything rolled merrily along.

With the protected machines, use the tool to put the [universal] upgrade on a disk or thumb drive and use the boot Options on your opening menu.

Have fun. The only machines that have fought ack were two with Atom processors.

I had installed Windows 10 successfully on 6 computers, so I was feeling good about the process. I had a couple hours to spare, so I decided to do two more installations. Both went south. One problem wasn't horrible - it wouldn't register Google Chrome, but I could solve that problem by using another browser or a workaround I devised.

The second problem was really bad - I tried installing Windows 10 on a compact Lenovo computer that had Windows 7. The installation went normally until I tried to log in. The screen told me to "wait a moment while we set up your apps." Then it said, "this is taking a little longer than expected, but installation will soon be complete.

When it completed, the screen kept flashing off and on, and nothing would work. I googled for a solution, and found that hundreds of people had the same problem. The only solution was to revert to the previous version of Windows. I did that, but it took a long, long time. I finished work at 11 PM.

I think I'll hold off on more installations for a couple months, hoping Microsoft comes up with solutions. All but the last two of the computers I converted work wonderfully, but I haven't upgraded any of our key employees, because losing their data would be a real problem.

The bad news... My external hard drive disappeared.
The good news... I closed down, unplugged the drive, restarted and plugged it back in again. It reappeared AND, it didn't push out the DVD/CD drive!!!.
Why do I get a sense of achievement by succeeding in doing something I shouldn't have had to do in the first place?

cell or land phone number "so they could get a voice sample". I
suppose they don't have one, because I've never used Skype and I cut

        While I was swearing at them an ad popped up telling me I
could "keep an eye on my kids" by turning on their webcam and mikes

I was over-spending. Also "free".

Joe, what devices are you using?

I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 recording interface/mic pre-amp, and I also use a Focusrite VRM-Box monitor simulator. Both seem to be fine, they show up in the drop-down lists for input/output devices, and I've used them for listening to playback. I don't record and mix in Audacity - I use Reaper - but I do use Audacity for some editing and FX.

All seems fine for me, but I guess if you're using other devices, there may be drivers missing or some kind of conflict somewhere?

My 'upgrade' to win 10 on a brand new unused Lenovo PC processed very easily and seemed to work fine for nearly a day
until I noticed it was failing to restart after some software and driver updates.
Then after repeated attepmts to update some intel drivers for Win 10 after 'Lenovo Companion' stated they were necessary,
Restart failed completely, and never worked again..

That's why I rolled back to Win 8.1.
But restart still failed to work.

So resorted to lenovo onekey recovery back to factory reset.

Now it functions fine in win 8.1, but when I tried to create a recovery drive,
I get a message stating components are missing and I need the Windows 8.1 install disc,

It IS an easy transition.

That said, updates have been coming in and one of them messed up the Windows update facility so I had to roll back the system to its state before the update. That caused a few glitches in other programs that had updated since but that was mostly easily fixed.

Backed up my entire PC to my external HDD last night, then installed Win 10. Went as smooth as a baby's bottom, no hiccups or problems of any sort. Didn't do the express install, I used the options to switch off as much of the tracking stuff as possible.

First impression is that, for the average Joe like me who just does a bit of surfing the web, online shopping, email, Farcebook, The Mudcat Mental Asylum, a few spreadsheets, a bit of word processing, it's not much different to Win 8.1 in terms of use. I realise that there's probably more going on under the surface that the tinfoil-hat brigade are bricking it over, but for what I imagine are the vast majority of people, it's very similar to its predecessor.

Everything seems to work fine - my internet security, Office 2013, Reaper, Audacity, Pro-Tools First, FlightRadar 24, Photoshop, everything.

Early days, but looking good, at least for the moment.

I've spent today taming 8.1 to my minimalist requirements.

This'll be the 3rd or 4th time I done it in recent months,
and I think I'm getting the hang of where most important options & disable tick boxes are hidden....

.. almost feeling at home now with 8.1

[but my wish list hi power audio PC will still be installed with win 7 pro, just for the sake of informed stubborness...]

Anyway, I really did want to like Win 10 and expect to give it another try before too long...
Though the restriction on user control of updates is a big discomfort, verging on deal breaker for me.

It does seem less confused than a new factory fresh install of win 8.1...
just for some reason the installation was broken on my brand new budget price Lenovo PC ???
