The NUC has a

The condition he
describes usually happens when Windows Automatic Updates fails to
install an update, and since it is always set to automatically
download and install available updates, a loop is generated. This
is usually the underlying source of the issue encountered.
The key clues
are that the problem was kept at bay by resetting several
components of Windows Update manually. Microsoft has a Windows

This is more
powerful than the built-in Windows Update Troubleshooter found in
Windows 10. Additionallly, after this tool is run, the user should

HOW TO CREATE
THE ULTIMATE BACKUP STRATEGY TO SAVE TIME AND PEACE OF MIND
A Full System
Image is still the best backup strategy. At some point, nearly
everyone who owns any device will need to reset or reinstall it.
Having a rollback option sure beats rebuilding a highly-customized
PC or tablet system. This method works best with three current
backup copies, one stored off-site. It requires the most hardware
investment, but it's also the best strategy. CrashPlan is no
longer available for Home Users. Cloud services will always fail
you when you need them the most, in my experience. For data
backup, Windows 10 until the upcoming Fall Creators Update, has
had File History. This is being replaced with a version of Storage
Spaces. Either way, this is the most effective way of having the
same three-fold backup as with System Image Backups, but updated
more frequently to reflect changes in your most-used files.

Shouldn’t Use “Anti-Spying” Tools for Windows 10

questionable origins and should be avoided. But some are well
curated, of good quality, and have decent help menus.
The harm which
can be done by a tool should not be the criterion for not using
it. O&O ShutUp10, for example, can be misused by checking off
items which are not in the recommended list. Checking off those
items can severely damage Windows 10. This does not make the tool
dangerous. It only makes users who check off everything dangerous.

Why Acrylic WiFi Won't Display in Chrome -- Not Unsafe!
I just found a
way to enable access to a site known to be safe, but where Chrome
shows a Revoked Security Certificate error message with no option
to proceed anyway. If this is only an error due to Chrome (and
Linux) not having correct information about the trustworthiness of
the site's Certificate or its Issuing Authority, then it is
usually safe to make a Chrome Launcher Link (or alter the Windows
Desktop Shortcut) to append "--ignore-certificate-errors" (no
quotes) to the Target box (the Command box in Linux).
this is very insecure, so make sure you really want to allow
access to the site before proceeding. You will no longer be warned
of invalid or revoked certificates anywhere!
it is vastly preferable to go to a site with a different browser,
rather than to compromise your security by ignoring security
certificate errors. This is why I used Firefox for the Acrylic
WiFi site before messing with Chrome launch parameters.
uses a revoked Certificate Authority, which is very stupid to
begin with. But to reach the site and download the Acrylic WiFi
installer, Chrome and only Chrome (and maybe only Chrome under
Linux) needs the modified launcher or shortcut. Once you finish
with the Acrylic WiFi download, I would strongly suggest clearly
labeling your Chrome no-certificates shortcut, or trashing it
entirely. Maybe even change its icon if you can.
There may be
third-party sites which host Acrylic WiFi installer downloads. If
so, use these sites, please! Or use a different web browser,
as Edge, IE and Firefox all allow access to the Acrylic WiFi site
and all its downloads. The issue is between Google and two
Certificate Issuing Authorities, not a problem with the Acrylic
WiFi web site being infected or otherwise dangerous.
