There are essentially two types of problems with Windows 10 updates which were not problemmatic before: 1. The updates are mandatory, even when they bork your machine/programs.

To 'clone' a disk is to make an exact 'twin' of it. So, if that disk is bootable, the 'twin' will be also. So, if that is your internal hard drive, it will boot from the 'clone', too. This means that if you have an accident or Windows problem, you can go get your clone, clone back to your damaged dr...

In your User Control Panel, there's a "Friends & Foes" tab. Once you click on that tab, at left you'll see 'Manage foes'. Any user name you type in the Foes box will become 'invisible' to you, once you click 'Submit'. Do one name per line.
