Persistent Windows Account Notification
Whenever I boot my computer (windows 10) I get a notification saying "We need to fix your Microsoft Account (most likely you password changed). Select here to fix it on Shared experience settings." I click on the notification and then the "Fix now" button below the red "Some of your accounts require attention" message. From there a dialogue window opens up, but it never loads. The previous screen has the option to give feedback however I need to be logged in to leave feedback. I click log in and I see the same empty dialogue window pop up, so I'm guessing it's the same log-in problem. So how do I resolve this self perpetuating problem? How do I satisfy or disable this incredibly persistent notification?

1)Is the windows defender will scan & protect the external disc and USBs when connected. 2)Before downloading any file from internet is the windows defender will scan for the virus? 3)I want to close the services of McAfee Life safe from my laptop which was preloaded while purchasing one year back, How to remove that and how to activate the windows defender in place of McAfee. Like MacAfee windows defender will provide the intimations like how they are performing by protecting the PC from number of trackers etc.
Windows 10 S May 2019 Update?
So I have had some security issues recently. I bought a new laptop PC specifically with windows 10 S. I see a lot of threads downplaying it’s functionality/usefulness - but for me, in this moment, the more secure the better. When I went to update my new laptop, it stopped updating at the 1809 windows update. Is there a 1903 windows update coming for S or is that only if I convert to windows 10 Home? I’d like to avoid conversion until/if I feel it truly necessary .. but would also like the latest windows features and updates. Any news/info? Thanks for any reply!
Win. 10, Ver. 20H2 Install Fails, Disk 100%, Restore Fails
I tried to install the October 20, 2020 Windows 10 update, version 20H2. The installation failed. I believe it was due to the HDD being maxed out at 100%. Following the failed installation, the computer continued to run with HDD at 100%. Following virus scans, I attempted System Restore. Only 2 prior System Restore points were available. Multiple System Restore attempts were made. Anti-virus and firewall settings were turned off following failed System Restore attempts. Following the final, failed System Restore attempt using the oldest System Restore date, the HDD problem seems to have been resolved, even though the System Restore failed. Regarding the failed System Restore, I received the following message after each failed attempt: _______________________ "System Restore did not complete successfully. Your Computer's system files were not changed. Details: System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer. Temporarily disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070005) You can try System Restore again and choose a different restore point. If you continue to see this error, you can try an advanced recovery method." ______________________ HISTORY: This i5, 8GB, HP computer was purchased in 12/2018. It encountered a problem following purchase that required a System Restore. At that time, System Restore crashed the operating system, which became unusable. This required returning the computer to HP for warranty repair. The repaired laptop computer that was returned to me had an updated BIOS and the HDD partition was removed. I am currently running Win-10, Version 1909. The current HDD problem seems to be resolved. However, System Restore is not working properly. 1) Does anyone have any thoughts as to how I can get System Restore to work? 2) HDD at 100% seems to be a problem with Windows 10, Version 20H2. Any thoughts?

Windows Search and OneNote results.
I used to be able to type into the windows search bar and it will show my notes in OneNote. However, I notice now that I have to type the search string and then select Documents in order to see them. Before I could find them under "All'. Is there some way to restore this? I haven't changed my search settings. I assume they have been altered within updates.
Current Hardware And Windows 10 May 2004 Update
Hello Windows Community, I just received my New Alienware Area-51 Laptop the other day with the current hardware configurations, and I've been kicking the tires and setting it up. It came with Windows 10 1909 preinstalled and it had "NO" problems updating to the new build of Windows 10 May 2004 . It took around 45 minuets to complete the update, and the new build works very well, extremely fast and stable . I've read posts on other MS support sites with members having problems or just wondering if the new build will work on newer hardware builds. So hopefully they will see this and go ahead and install it when it becomes available to them for download. Love the new Build Microsoft Thank-you 👍😊
