Win. 10 20H2 - in place-upgrade bug (temporary workaround)
hi all: I started a conversation stating having an issue with the in place-upgrade while in Windows 10 20H2. Tried to fix an issue with it but cannot select the keep files, folders, etc. option. In the Microsoft community, I was given a link that this is a bug in Windows 10 20H2 and Microsoft will provide a fix for the bug in the December update Tuesday. Here is a temporary workaround to fix issues with your device but do not want to re-install Windows 10: 1) go to control panel 2) click on, Uninstall a program 3) click on View installed updates 4) right click on, Feature Update to Windows 10 20H2 via Enablement... (it will state: Uninstall. Let it run) 5) Windows is uninstalling Windows 10 20H2. After it is done, click on restart. You will be back to Windows 10 2004. You do an in place upgrade with the installation media. (if you have a USB with Windows 10 2004 or 20H2) I in place-upgrade with the 20H2 installation media. I am back at 20H2 and the issue I had is gone.
Windows Update giving error 0x80070002 before downloading
I have that issue that I was unable to download last three OS builds. I thought the only solution is downloading the OS and by pass the Window Update. Windows update repair tool did not find any problem. I was able to locate a way to download the last OS Build. Somebody with same error 0x80070002 but it was able to download the last Build up to 7%. My issue was worse. After downloading and installation of the last Build, I was able thanks to God, to fix the issue with Windows update. I checked updates and no more errors. I did CHKDSK and disk errors found. I fixed it and all was ok. I had another issue with stand by and hibernation in which the PC froze after I tried to awake up. After all done, I was able to fix that too. I write this to share my solution with other people with the same issue so they can resolve their issue too..
Never Jump To Conclusions! 👀
Hello Everyone, I'd like to share a little True story with all of you. The other day on patch Tuesday I downloaded all the updates and installed them to my system and all seemed fine. So the next day I was surfing the net and all of a Sudden my Microsoft 1850 Wireless Mouse froze-up and stopped responding after my system made that little noise that it does when you remove a device from a USB Port. So I thought maybe a reboot will fix the problem. And it did for a little while and then it did it again. So naturally my first thought was """OH NO A Bad Update!!!""" It wasn't doing that until the Update!... It's just gotta be that. Then I took a second and thought well maybe It's a mouse going bad, Yeap! you guest it, I jumped online and ordered a new one. Anyways!... After that I started thinking and I decided to remove the Mouse Dongola from the extra USB Port that came on my cooling pad and insert it into a different USB port on my device itself. Well Low And Behold It Worked Perfectly!... It seams that the USB Port on my Cooling pad has gone bad after many years of service And NOT the fault of Microsoft at all. The Moral Of The Story : Never Jump To Conclusions Because The Problem May Just Be On Your End.

"we don't have permission to get email for ...@aol.com"
I keep getting this message from Outlook, with directions to re-enter correct IMAP & SMTP info in settings. I've followed the recommended procedures with no result. I have updated in the AOL profile too to make sure IMAP & SMTP addresses are correct. This is the info: IMAP Incoming mail server (IMAP): imap.aol.com Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.aol.com IMAP-993-SSL SMTP-465-SSL Do I need to just uninstall and re-install the account across all devices? I don't use AOL for all email, but it is handy for store promotions, etc. Thanks for any advice.
