Additional security features were introduced, such as built-in antivirus software, integration with Microsoft SmartScreen phishing filtering service and support for UEFI Secure Boot on supported devices with UEFI firmware.

I am working on an HP all-in-one that freezes up almost immediately if I browse the we using wifi, but works fine if I use ethernet alone. I've tried updating the wireless adapter driver. I've also uninstalled the wifi adapter and allowed Windows to reinstall it. Any ideas? My customer has been waiting a while already and needs it for his business.

Update: I installed a USB wifi adapter and disabled the internal adapter, and now I have no problems. So something's wrong with the on-board adapter. Easy fix.

Hi we have roaming profiles in our environment with offline file synchronization. A client of our's synchronization keeps failing the conflicts in the sync center state "A file was deleted on this computer and changed on the server while this computer was offline" The sync center provides a path to each of the files, but I cannot locate them. They appear to temporary files of no significance in $recycle.bin. I cannot locate them even if i enable hidden files and folders and enable show protected operating system files.

When i right click on each conflict in the sync center I am given the options to resolve the conflicts or ignore. When I choose ignore nothing happens, when i choose resolve another window appears stating "The details for this conflict could not be opened. The conflict may no longer exist, the device it occurred on is not available or may contain invalid data. The parameter is incorrect"

I tried recreating the clients local profile and network profile but the sync errors still appear. I had the client log into a test machine and we do not get these errors so it appears to be machine related.

I am installing some software for someone on his Asus T100 laptop. Everything runs fine except that I can't get a wireless mouse connected to the computer.
The mouse is a Logitech M185 mouse which is classified as a HID device by the manufacturer. It therefore shouldn't require any additional software for basic functionality which is all that is required. The mouse works perfectly on a Windows 10 laptop but is not recognised at all in Windows 8.1 when the dongle is inserted into the USB port.
The same applies to USB memory sticks: they are not recognised by Windows 8.1 but work fine on other computers.
However, a Western Digital Passport drive (no external power source) is recognised by Windows 8.1 and performs as expected when plugged into same USB port (there is only one USB port on the Asus laptop).
There are no downloadable drivers, probably because it is a HID device. I have tried to disable and then re-enable the device.
The system claims the device is working properly and that the required driver is present and up-to-date.
I would greatly appreciate suggestions that could help me to solve this problem.

Hello,

On my Windows 8.1 laptop, I have set the lock screen to play  a slideshow of the pictures in my Pictures folder.  It worked just fine for months.

A few days ago, a few pictures that are NOT in my pictures folder crept into the rotation.  Since then, there are more and more.  Kittens, kitchens, head shots of random people, icons and buttons blown up to full screen size, birds, camping gear, coffee cups, furniture, baking recipes, - none of it mine.

At first I thought maybe it was pulling images from a browser cache - like the blown up icons - but some of these look like actual photography, not website images.  And I don't see anything from web pages I know I've visited recently.

So - first question - has anyone seen this happen and have an idea what is going on?

Second - I'd like to delete all these images from wherever they are, but.......

I turned off the router and locked the screen - and the random images continue - so it's not the machine pulling images from the internet in real time.  From reading, it seems that the image used for the lock screen slideshow might be stored in a few different places:

C:\Windows\Web\Screen - contains only 6 standard images

C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper - contains a few folders, like "Flowers", and these each contain only a few images, none of which are being seen in the lockscreen slideshow

More reading lead to a hidden system folder:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData

but even logged in as …

I have a Hexa Spring 8 Windows 10 tablet. I was downloading anniversary update and after it finished, the screen told me that the tablet was offline and to enter the last password, which I did. It tells me "your device is offline. Sign in with the last password used on this device. " 
How can I reset it without a keyboard (no visible poke hole) .

Any third party tools or ways to access a new PC for a user that forgot her password?   My child received a notebook for her birthday, and walked through the wizard without my guidance.  Now she can't remember the password. It's the only Windows 8.1 PC we have and it did not come with an installation disk.
