DISABLING WINDOWS 10 AUTO UPDATE


In August of 2016 Microsoft announced some issues with it's Windows 10 Anniversary update! Thank you very much.


There is no way to control Windows update Home editions of Windows 10 without some effort.


One of the very main differences between Windows 10 Pro edition and Windows 10 Home edition is the networking management capabilities. The other differences include the exclusion of Group Policy Editor for Windows 10 Home Edition. In fact, the Group Policy Editor is not available in any Home or Starter edition of Windows, be it Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.

FLUSH DNS 


When you travel (and occasionally even if you don't) - you may need to Flush and 

Reset the DNS Cache....


What is DNS: An often-used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it serves as the phone book for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses. For example, the domain name www.example.com translates to the addresses 93.184.216.119 (IPv4) and 2606:2800:220:6d:26bf:1447:1097:aa7 (IPv6)..

Why Flush: Your computer is storing information on where the Internet told it to find the web site you have visited. If you travel often, the Cache will contain old data that will be overwritten, however, it may take a few minutes, and in some cases, more time than you can permit! Web sites will be slow to load, images and content by be slow and the experience poor. That’s why flush the old DNS info and your computer will immediately get revised and updated routes from your current location.


Flushing the DNS on your computer can help resolve DNS related problems in Microsoft Windows. Issues would include web site not found errors or not being able to view certain web pages that have changed.


To reset your DNS cache, follow these steps:


Hold down the Windows key and press “R” to bring up the Run dialog box. (That’s the key with the Window logo on it!)

Type “ipconfig /flushdns” then press “Enter“.


That’s will do it!.


A old fashioned command box will flash on the screen for a split second and the DNS cache is cleared, well, flushed!
