HELP..-files locked after updating windows7 to windows10
I recently updated my windows 7 to windows 10. Realised my google drive folder, in window.old (that has been carried in from windows 7) seem to be encrypted, it has a lock sign. I have tried decryption it by various methods available, nothing seems to work, (changed security attribute, changed ownership, tried command prompt decryption) however no luck :( . The folder was not synced with the cloud hence a lot of files in the folder were sitting on my local drive. Now I can't access them at all. I understand window.old folder will automatically delete after 30 days, and I have about 10 days left to get access to these otherwise all may be deleted. Any help to rescue these would be much appreciated. Note: 1- I had backed up this folder on my external hard drive, and have realised the same issue appearing on the external hd. 2- This particular folder is google drive folder, however it wasn't synced as the capacity was exceeded. I hope the issue is understandable, and I hope someone will have solution on this as I am completely exhausted trying to recover these work files.
Update issues / security message
Updated to version 1909 and now get a startup screen message saying I need to upgrade to a newer version of windows, but the newest version is already installed. what's wrong?
WIN10 UPDATE DOES NOT UPDATE
Have UNSUCCESSFULLY tried the update [some work, this one does not] for the past 6 months or longer. I even tried to let it "spin" for 2 days but it never comes out of the loop. I force shut down and then go through another forced shut down upon which the screen says its undoing the update and putting things back the way they were. this has happened about 10 times over the past year. HELP
Tips of the day: Becoming an expert
To draw a selection box around a group of files, click a corner of the group, and then drag the rectangle to form the box. To start a command prompt window, from which you can start programs, click Start, type "command prompt" (without the quotes), and then click Command Prompt. You can press WINDOWS LOGO + R to use the Run command to open shared folders on other computers. You can drag the program's icon to the taskbar to make running programs quicker. You can drag a file's icon into a document, or even drag a shortcut icon into a document or mail message. You can start a Windows-based program from a command prompt window. You can copy and paste text between Command Prompt and Windows 10. In the command prompt window, highlight any text you want, and then right-click to copy the text to the clipboard. You can then paste the text into your application, such as Microsoft Word. You can set File Explorer to show or hide three-letter filename extensions.
I can't scan to the computer from the printer
After scanning a lot recently with out any problem, now the message comes up -"the scanner is in use or unavailable ( E1460 - B 305". I have tried a few things without any success such as : uninstalling the scan software and then re install, checking the connections and switching everything off, unplugging the printer and then after a minute reconnect the printer and turn back on. The computer is an Acer desktop with Windows 10 and the printer in an Epson XP - 8500 (printer and scanner ). I am still able to print from computer files as normal. Any advise/ideas would be much appreciated. Pete V
I'm not technically inclined.
I rely on my Microsoft Windows ten 🔟 to solve most problems and 99% hasn't let me down. I will not insult the Technician's intelligence by presuming to suggest how to better the system. I do want "people-friendly" included in the future. People such as myself are not Technicians.

If there any MS tool that can parse CBS.log and DISM.log?
The DISM and SFC commands are one of the most powerful and best tools users can use to fix tons of issues with their system. However, even I, as a "poweruser" Should NOT be in powershell and run commands. Nor should users be in the regisitry, which Microsoft suggestest as a fix to certain problems. Microsoft gives the correct info. Users should NOT touch the registry, EVER! Nor the Powershell for that matter. Why? Because you need to be a mechanic to fix a Tesla car. One mistake and you can ruin big parts of windows. Win 10 is FANTASTIC at leaving logs! However, users dont not know what they mean, should NOT LOOK at them! It will only sorry people, and they could damage their system. Question: Is there any tool that can parse the Dism.log, CBS.log, update.log (And do the powershell commands to make the log). Also, I am lacking a tool that can check your Image against .xlm lists in MoSetup, "Waasmedic" and the live kernal reports. These tools should generate a report AND offer fixes that a normal user can understand. Before the user does anything with the tool. The tool creates a system restore. EASY. - FixWin 10 does this. - UWT 4, does this. - CCleaner have started to offered it now (DONT EVER USE CCLEANER TO CLEAN THE REGISTRY IN WIN 10! Why is Microsoft lacking tools like these, when the commands and features the tools uses, are Microsofts own. But in powershell command mode. There are 3:e party tools, but I do NOT want to use them. Microsoft needs a tool that can parse logs, Use ALL DISM/SFC/Repair-image and offer option to FIX things. Report "nothing is wrong. Just to prove I am not just negative. Questions to MS devs/techs: 1. Microsoft dev/techs: Doesn't running "SFC /SCANNOW" 3 times in a row, in a powershell as an administrator not Fix A LOT of problems? 2. As do cmds like "analyseStore", "repair-image" and many other COMMANDS? 3. There is no command to check WHERE your image is? CheckHealth from -Source-. needs you to point where the image is.
Changing system name broke direct ethernet connection
I have two windows 10 desktops wired together with ethernet they are going through a switch. But that switch does not have internet. System A has wifi, with internet access. System B is only connected to system A. I shared files over network in file explorer. But then I changed the name of system B, through the system info settings. And now it won't show up in network on System A or B, but it can still access system A. I can still ping bewtween the two systems. But I can't see System B. Why did changing the name of this system break my connection? How do I fix this issue?
