I have concerns windows updates infected my new computer
Hello i wanted to share that my new computer was infected from WINDOWS UPDATER which was the only thing downloaded into my computer. I shortly there after bought a prnter and due to HP and other printers coming with NO CD or software , I had to download that into my computer as well. there is something wrong when a hacker can attactch rouge programs to the windows automated updater. These people remote in and reside in and around where i live in PARK FOREST IL and nearby towns within less than 10 miles . they are chronically stealing and manipulating. I have no extra software other then a a couple programs that came from my CDs. I have to say that windows defender cant identity it. And I cant find it myself. Four times in the last month since i got this computer when i went to turn on this laptop it was on the rebootable screen when there was no such issue on shut down. it should have been completely off, yet i left it off and charging. I just cannot find a soultion to stop illegall remoting and use of my computer. Tonite when i logged in about 1 am ish.. someone was already using the flash drive on my system copying my stuff to some other computer . this is NOT US military or CIA or FBI its CROOKS and its scarey creepy and nobody has provided any assistance. When I wrote to FBI. GOV and many many other state and federal offices about my being targeted . .those perps change all my reports out. now they attack my system and have penetrated ONE DRIVE which used to just be a cloud on the web. But now when i sign into this computer. I can see view and use my one drive in my computer and it stays on it offline. HOW WAS THAT DONE?? I didnt do it. .they did similar on the laptop i am recently replacing.. Im horrified cause crooks are going thru my private supposedly protected documents altering them copying them and FORCE deleting them. ITs gang likewhich i am not in. they also are mental patients who got jobs.

Win. 10 disk cleanup: How to delete temporary files
hi all: I wonder why is it that when it gets to like the 7th or 8th day, especially day 7, going to Storage and Temporary Files, I noticed the temporary files is there. It doesn't happen from day 1 to day 6. I have to clean it up. But it still appears in disk cleanup. I actually delete temporary files from manually before going to Storage. I thought it could be a bug in Windows 10. Wondering under temporary files, why it will not state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. For mine, it will state 2.07 MB. For some of you, it might state GB. I searched online and found a way for the temporary files to state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. Here are the steps: reminder, the following steps involve registry and do not modify other things, as it might cause serious issues with your device. 1. Please type reg under search and it will show Registry editor. Please click on run as administrator. 2. Then, go to, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Temporary Files 3. In the right-pane, double-click LastAccess. 4. Set the value data for LastAccess to 10. That is what I did for mine. After you are finished and go back to Storage and Temporary Files or the disk cleanup, you will notice under temporary files, it will state 0 bytes. A reminder: Even though it might state like 2.07 MB under temporary files, but when you actually delete the files manually, it will have no affect at all. You don't lose disk space because of it. Hope this helps.
