  1. Hi, I'm back again with another PC problem- what a shocker. Backstory: I recently brought out a 10-11 year old computer I had around (that yes I still cleaned and took care of even though it wasn't used as much) that admittedly is pretty slow so that it could become the school work computer for a family member. (HP Compaq Presario with 3 gb ram, AMD Athlon II I think and a NVIDA GeForce graphics card that did run 7 and I upgraded it to 10 as it was probably the most unsafe thing on the planet, it was stuck on SP1 and I knew there was malware from the previous owner and I
  2. Before it fixed itself it was asking for the password for an outlook not even connected to the one I had in Outlook 2007. (It asked for my Windows 10 Outlook account, my main one I log into Windows with). I had my other outlook on there and it didn't show my email I set it up with. Kinda confusing to explain. TLDR; It showed an outlook account I never had connected to Outlook 2007, it showed the one I use to log into windows with.
  3. Don't know how on gods green earth what happened but the issue legitimately fixed itself. I really hope I don't run into this issue again. I tried to fix this for at least 30 minutes before posting here so I guess.. going to someone for help always ends up with you fixing it yourself.
  4. I've been using Outlook 2007 and lately it has been asking for a password over and over - even after I put in the right login credentials. It also crashes if I hit cancel. Yes I'm aware that Office 2007 went out of support over 4 years ago, I'm still choosing to use it. Any help would be appreciated.
  5. I installed the build on 6/29/2021, I'll probably look into some of the ways to extend the time,
  6. Okay, how long does it keep the windows.old folder? I heard 10 days somewhere, but Windows 10 keeps it about a month I think. I saw that you can technically go back from a build... all it takes is recovery. All I'm asking is how long I have to revert back. There has been and always will be a revert back to a previous version of Windows.
  7. The laptop I'm using for 11 is a secondary machine, my primary is on Windows 10, its just preferable I don't loose my files so I don't have to reinstall, and move things. (Saves me a little bit of time). (I also do have virtual machines and reinstalling VM's is a bit of a pain).
  8. I'm aware on 10 it was 28-30 days to rollback, however, I would like to know how long I have until I loose the opportunity to rollback from Windows 11 Insider to Windows 10 21H1? (If it changed at all). Also, if I stay on 11, am I able to use the Media creation tool (21H1) to go back to 10 without loosing my files? I am on the second day of using it.
  9. Somehow fixed it on my own by sitting about an hour before it started to download and install.
  10. I've encountered many issues with Windows Update before and this is one of those "Why can't Windows Update just work great like macOS or Linux" moments. I just tried to install the Windows 11 Insider Preview and at first things went great it installed and downloaded... then looped...? Multiple times it did this for the course of almost an hour and half I waited and it did this, so, I restarted it, and yay, it got stuck, I rebooted, attempted to troubleshoot Windows update. Nothing - so I'm stuck, what do I do? And no. I am NOT reinstalling Windows 10. (MS is a pain when every issue you
  11. Alright, here's how I was able to fix it, I set everything back basically to default and fixed the sharing and it told me what my IP address was and it works now. Thanks.
  12. I don't see a problem with Windows 10, like I said in a previous post, all I wanted to do was test it on the PC to see if I liked it, and if I did I would move to it, Windows 11 has alot of new features, and while I hate the taskbar (it looks like macOS) the features are appealing.
  13. I honestly feel like the TPM requirement is a slap in the face by Microsoft, even if my computer is old, if I want to use a reasonable preforming system, I should be able to. I'm not the only one dealing with this TPM requirement issue.
  14. "why this old machine needs Windows 11 in the first place?" - Well to that, I've been looking at moving it to test the operating system out to see if I like it. I don't plan on going back to Linux, I've done it in the past and it was okay, but the lack of Windows application support (although you can do wine but I've never had success on my systems before) is a bit ridiculous, and I just don't like it. Mint is okay and I used it for a bit but that was to help a slow computer of mine. (I may consider it in the future though) I use the 8 year old computer because it was the fastest th
  15. So.. windows 11.. yeah that rumor that actually turned out to be true...
