  1. Windows 10 Pro setup

    Do a clean install. You will be glad you did. That way you don't have to delete any Microsoft accounts as you will be starting from fresh. Cortana is your assistant who will answer questions for you etc. Best to answer them yourself !! If it has Win 10 already installed then you don't need to enter a key during install as it will auto activate when you connect to the internet because they keys is digital and saved in the cloud on the Microsoft servers. This forum has lots of tutorials about all sorts of Win 10 stuff. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/
  2. Windows 10 Pro setup

    Hi Jamin, Quite a few of us do run Win 10 (I have pro as well) When I set Win 10 up for others I do it using an iso on DVD or USB. Using the install disk/usb I delete all partitions on the drive and install it to the whole drive, that way Windows sets it up right. I don't contect to the interenet and allow it to install updates etc untill it is fully on desktop. I don't select to have a Microsoft account, you can select to not have one if you look. I always call the machine Home or something like that. I never give it a personal name (in case you ever have to post logs etc online.) I don't bother with a password, as they can add it later if they want one. I don't allow Cortana, and I don't accept any of the options that it pre selects before install (such as send info to Microsoft etc) Then it installs. After desktop is reached I usually go into Start..Settings..Privacy and turn off all options in the list (lots of ticks to undo) Then right-click on taskbar and make Cortana an icon(cause I hate all the white space it takes up!) Then I conect to the internet via wifi or ethernet and do Start.. Setting.. Updates. (may take a little while) Restart. You can use CCleaner to uninstall a lot of the Microsoft stuff (Xbox, Microsoft pay etc) as Windows won't let you uninstall them. For personal machines I always turn off Fast Start up. Other people may do all these things differently... this is just how I do it. Have fun !! I then
  3. CCleaner Beta v5.48.001

    Please post in English. Thank you.
  4. Cannot Install 5.49

    With all the issues there has been the last few builds, I wouldn't be very confident in Piriform achieving that correctly.
  5. What build number of CCleaner are you using? Open CCleaner Left hand side select Options (the cog) Then select Advanced Where is says at the top ''Cleaning results level of detail'' select Advanced Report. Close Ccleaner, open it again and try a scan again and see it you get the big amount.
  6. Update to 5.50.6911 not working

    See if this helps https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53053-cant-update-550-pro/
  7. If you change the way the results are shown to the ''old way'' does it still show the same high amount? (Options ..advanced)
  8. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    Great to see you are still around Jamin4u. All the best to you too

    Let's hope your keyboard keeps working Some of those Win 10 troubleshootings actually work !
  14. Keyboard not working....sometimes

    Try Windows 10 Settings...Update and Security...Troubleshoot (on left hand side).... scroll down to Keyboard and give it a try.

    Troubleshooting.... Is it a wireless keyboard (and mouse) ? If yes, does the same thing happen if you use a wired keyboard with wired mouse?
