How to temporarily prevent a Windows or driver update from
reinstalling in Windows 10.

" To temporarily prevent the driver or update from being reinstalled
until a new driver or updated fix is available, a troubleshooter is
available that provides a user interface for hiding and showing Windows Updates and drivers for Windows 10.

You can obtain and run the "Show or hide updates" troubleshooter
by downloading it from the Microsoft Download Center.

Windows XP Service Pack 4 Unofficial 3.1b

" Editor's Note: IMPORTANT NOTICE:

All SP4 users running SP4 v3.1a or earlier must delete this registry key to receive the latest WU updates:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WindowsEmbedded

No further action is needed. SP4 v3.1b is intended only for new installations and removes just this key.
The sp4_march16_wufix.zip file in Google Drive contains a reg file
that will automate the task. Double-click on the reg file,
click Yes on the popup message, and you're done!
Just make sure you have administrative privileges! "

Untested by me.
However it appears to be well researched.
As with anything....read up.

How to Take Full Ownership of Files & Folders in Windows 8 / 10

I used this because I am trying to migrate a MYOB install to a
Toshiba Windows 8.1 laptop for a client.

I couldn't take ownership or be the administrator to delete
files and folders.
Between win 8.1 and MYOB...5 star s....y pieces of garbage
I was always booting Puppy LightHouse to delete stuff.

As always the rule is...USE at Your Own Risk and read
the instructions.

The above is missing some steps.
After trial and error I wrote down what I did so I have a record
in the event I need to do this again.

Here it is:

-1- In Windows Explorer, right click on the folder you need to access, select Properties.
-2- Security Tab, select Advanced.
-3- Under Owner line, select Change.
-4- Select Advanced Tab.
-5- Select Find Now.
-6- Under Search Results, a list of several users will populate the next window. You need to know the right one to select. In my case there were about 30 or so possible accounts to select from. Three of those made sense. It was either Administrator..., Administrators..., or my username@hotmail.com (or possibly a 4th, "Everyone"). I found the one that worked. The trick is to know who you need to select so that you assign permission correctly. It's very cryptic because Microsoft populates the list with so many accounts that are on your computer. That's just the way Windows 8.1 is. Select OK.

-7- Under the Owner line (The Balloon from Step #3 above will reappear) select: Replace owner on subcontainers and objects. Select OK. *Be sure to do this step to save yourself time.

-8- Have at it copying files from the password protected hard drive to your new hard drive.

There were a couple stubborn files. In which case I did the above steps. Instead of step 7 I selected Apply. Next I had to select on Permissions (without exiting completely, go back to the balloon that appears from step #1 above. Then in the Balloon from step #2 above you will see the Permissions tab. Click "Continue" below Permissions (For some files you may have to go back a screen and then go back into the Security, Advanced, actions in step 2 above. If you go to far back to the point you have to right click properties, you will have to repeate steps 1-7 again.) Although I saw I was the new owner, I was not in a "Principal" in the list of of users. I had to select on the Add tab. Click on Principal: Select a principal. Do the same action as step 4-6 above. I had to be sure to select Full Control on the next window when it becomes available. Select OK on all subsequent tabs. It's a little cryptic so have patience.
The process will not likely be clear in the original posting so please be sure to follow my steps above and I wish you success.

No offence meant Chris but why would you want to post all this windows rubbish on a puppy forum !.

I can understand if you stick to the post subject how a live disk can be very useful to go into windows directories and explore even without a password and fix stuff more easily in some cases or copy whole directories for later perusal .

Its all the other stuff I'm talking about.

Perish the thought
Its a last resort on a securely isolated machine to do something until I can work out how to do it in Linux. Rarely used these days I am pleased to say.

Unfortunately some Puppy users also have to make a living in the real world supporting computer users!

I needed a Safe no Hassle upload today.

I chose Sendspace.

https://www.sendspace.com/

The files only stay there 7 days.
But no need to register.
I didn't use an email address.
There is another free option there with ads.

I downloaded my file to check that the link I was given worked,
and I scanned it also.
Everything was good to go.

I looked on Whirlpool Forum for uploaders, and that is why I chose it.

Free File Hosts

http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/free_file_hosts

:::::::::

I uploaded Network Magic 4 XP

Description: Old Network Magic 4 XP
Before Cisco bought them out.
Still works after 7 days do not update.
Do Not Update

https://www.sendspace.com/file/oc8cb5

So be quick...upload it somewhere else as you wish
This is very hard to get.

Chris.

That, plus the fact that many Puppy users ended up in the kennels through total disillusionment with Windows.....mostly following EOL with XP, I would guess. And, as Burn_IT says in the following post, some poor buggers actually have to make a living helping out Windows users (usually Joe Bloggs down the road, who doesn't know his hard drive from his monitor..!)

Keep up the good work, Chris. It's all grist for the mill, mate.


Mike. Wink

A lot of them are people who have to use Windows at work, but use Linux at home. They are the worst because they are often deliberately awkward.

I came across this on Majorgeeks

13 Troubleshooting Tools to Fix Windows 10

http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/13-troubleshooting-tools-fix-windows-10/

Untested by me.

"""""""""""

On the other hand Lazesoft Recovery Suite is often mentioned
on Whirlpool Forum.

http://www.lazesoft.com/lazesoft-recovery-suite-free.html

This is the free version.

Also untested by me.

Softpedia link..I never trust Cnet.
Majorgeeks are also good to go for downloads.

As always: automatic tools will often cause more problems than they solve.

My advice is by all means use these tools to highlight POSSIBLE problems, but never allow them to fix them. The fixing needs to be done by someone with deep knowledge of the systems.

Coping of data does NOT fall under the headline FIX WINDOWS

I use Puppy to access failed Windows systems, but I will only copy and replace things that I would have done in Windows had it been up and running -and that are acceptable fixes.
