    Just had my first updates of 2020, a Realtek one for my sound, and an AMD Security one, which is dated from April funnily. :p

    I knew it wouldn't last. I had installed windows 10 back in November properly for the first time (I'd dabbled with virtual machines/dual boot previously) and I was pretty happy with everything just working and not being annoyed by anything the last few months. But then out of nowhere, some poxy Office store app installs itself - it wouldn't be so bad if it just appeared as an icon but it actually opened itself and prompted me to sign in. I thought uninstalling the store on day one would prevent crap like this. :rolleyes:

    And then today, my Creative Z soundcard drivers got updated wiping out all my previous settings/EQ presets. They just can't ****ing help themselves at all. :mad: :p

    Yep, I removed the store and all apps using this powerhsell command: Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

    Sometimes I miss the calculator but google can do that now. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=google+calculator

    I've since enabled some group policies to try and stop further cr-app installs but I don't trust it one bit. :p

    So it seems it is a pretty nasty security flaw found by the NSA for Windows 10... and people were talking up security on 10 as if it would be any better to 7 :rolleyes: where are the people giving MS stick for this the way Intel has been getting it for similar?

    Funny thing, Windows 7, and 8.1, are supposed to be immune from it :p

    Oooh juicy. Still, at least it apparently hasn't been used out in the wild? :)

    Just got wind of this on the discord for a game forum I help moderate. We got a notifaction about 10 mins ago. It's the most severe I've seen.

    I'm surprised it is getting relatively high profile versus some of the other Windows 10 security issues lately - albeit the NSA found it rather than MS but worse has been patched in the last few months - amongst other things several very nasty RDP vulnerabilities that were quietly closed.
