I suspect that will take quite a while and many laws.

Besides if you want to go somewhere and not drive there are perfectly good and cheaper existing ways of doing it.


I also suspect that either traffic will grind to a halt or there will be a lot of problems with whose machine caused the crash.

I'm not disputing that, but until I try it I think it highly unlikely.
Do you mean you cannot get it to boot because of EufI or what doesn't work??

I have just tried it and it is fine. I even loaded a quick XP from it.
The tools work from a Windows 10 boot.

I suspect you may have access right restictions, but the same are likely to apply to the UBCD as well.

As I said first, check the boot options.

" anyone know a good alternative to Hirens Boot CD.
it won't work on windows 10 anymore. "

"""""""

I had a good look and I didn't want to make it too technical
and a turn off when all you want is a fixit.

I also looked at Falcon boot cd to see if they had a fix.

I have turned off secure boot etc and booted rescue discs and on some machines you can't see any drives.
Probably A GPT partition thing.

jmatt on Whirlpool Forums often recommends Lazersoft

So try the freebie version.

I don't have a machine with the horrible boot enabled and i am not going to turn it on or install it just to test things.
I have all Win 10 running without it (when I want W10) and until MS lose a lot of business by forcing it on me I'm going to be happy not to use it.

It does not actually make things more secure and just annoys the "£$% out of those that have to bypass it to do their job.

Yes I only post when I see something different.

Of course it's bad form by me having to read my own posts
to fix some computers ha! ha!.

But that's why I set it up originally.
Some links die and I can't help that.

Anyway cheers mate....Chris.

Ccleaner kills Mozilla Thunderbird ?

Whirlpool forum post.

Apparently there is a big problem with Windows 10 recently.
So back up your email.

I have never ever had a problem with Ccleaner ever,
but this is nasty.

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=2641705

From the same post giving a link to Ccleaner forum.

PostPosted: Sat 12 Aug 2017, 14:48    Post subject: Getting windows to change its boot startup to boot from USB  

Hoping Chris or someone familiar with Windows 10 can guide me .

I have a friend with windows on the machine and it will not read my ext4 file system which is a bugger because my movie backup is on ext4.

So I gave her a CD with puppy precise on it and then we tried to change the BIOS in settings to boot from CD first . F10 got us there and we changed it but it did not work.

Doing it a few times I noticed a small arrowhead to the left of the windows O/S entry and I am guessing thats the default indicator and it would not move.

Anyone know how we do this ? Have the password available but just don't know where to go to move default?
