hey gaybos-- has anyone here ever recovered a LC-1 wideband that got wet? My controller had a crack apparently and it got wet, now it doesn't work. Was wondering if anyone got it to work after it dried out- right now I have "poor man's 2 step" and im wasting fuel like a cat wastes toilet paper.

I really dont want to buy a new one but it feels like thats the route im about to take. :/

Windows 10 automatically installs without permission, complain users | Technology | The Guardian

Best comment from the article, and my feelings exactly:
"8165128200 said: “We’ve been getting calls trickling in all week from doctor’s offices, dental practices, B&Bs and roofing companies – among others – that have been hit by this and it’s a ******* mess."

So...Friday, Microsoft abruptly force quit everything that I was working on and decided to install Windows 10 without my permission. My screen went black, and then a cute little screen popped saying that it was upgrading.

So...how the hell do you fix the fact that every time I open an Excel file, a completely blank Excel file appears (that is apparently a ghost of the actual Excel file that I want to use...because when I close it, it closes my file).

I hate Windows 10 already. Adobe Acrobat has frozen once, and Excel twice. It has been 4 days.

I have a backup with Windows 7, but it is from early last week, and I would lose critical files from the days between the backup and the day Microsoft hit me with the KY.

Surprise install on my parents' computer. Not ******* cool. Dad had a stroke last year and mom doesn't do computers much at all and barely had a grasp on what was happening before. Now both are freaked out and depressed, stressed, and I have to try to help and don't know how the win10 bullshit works. Start menu brings up blocks with rotating ******* pictures and ******* video games and online movies for 75yr old people who just want to check email and the ******* weather radar? I can't find the ******* C: drive in the ******* start menu to save my ******* life. **** you, you motherfucking self righteous *********** at ******* Microsoft for forceably butt ******* your own users with this ill-conceived hipster bullshit interface. It doesn't let you pick Google as a ******* homepage for simple old people who prefer not to be forcefucked Bing and want to keep everything as it was. Well **** you with a Macrohard right up your Micropuss, you sniveling little dipshits. **** you to ******* death.

Once I have a drink I may become nasty with them, so I wanted to get this off my chest before pouring one.

Sounds exactly like the people on the production floor when we introduce new and sometimes not always improved changes.

I've managed to skip windows 8 entirely, and I think I was stuck for about a month with Vista between buying a new laptop and windows 7 coming out. I've also gone in and killed the win-update process for auto-downloading windows 10, so hopefully I can make it until whatever windows 11 is when it comes out and reverts again back to the business-friendly win 98/ win xp/ win 7 styles. I guess just as in life, talent generally skips a generation in windows versions - and they killed off windows 9 before it could become a reality...

The wife has Windows 10 on her triple-monitor Surface Pro setup. I actually don't mind the interface, come to think of it. It's far less intrusive than windows 8 was; it just seems like you lose the ability to "start menu".

Download "Start10" and install it. That'll get you back to the old start menu.

I don't think win10 is THAT bad. It certainly is different though. I've had it one one of my computers since the summer and that computer runs so much faster than it did on Win7. Start up is also blazing fast.

It is definitely more difficult to navigate the start menu for everything, but you can still pin icons to your desktop bar at the bottom of the screen, so I just do that for the programs I use the most. That being said, Win7 was better and easier to navigate. But I wonder if this might get easier too with time.

Remove KB3035583 from your installed updates list, and then disable (hide) it from being re-installed.

Agree 100%. I used to put the computer in sleep mode to boot quicker. But W10 is so much faster that I turn it off at night, and it still comes up faster than before.

No problems with it at all, except for the fact that you have to manually turn off all the intrusive **** that wants to report everything you do. But it's so much faster it was like upgrading the HW.

Curious about people reporting faster operation, focused largely on boot time, after installing Win10.

It would be interesting to compare a fresh Win10 install to a fresh Win7 install, rather than comparing it to a years-old Win7 install. On my home machine, for instance, I think I've been running the same Win7 install since I built the machine in early 2010. And we know from experience that as time goes on, boot times do tend to slow down as we gradually pile more drivers and services and updates and whatnot onto the system.

It's entirely conceivable that the speed increases being reported here have little to with migrating from one OS to another, and much more to do with simply performing a fresh OS install in general.
