  • If you run into diffficulties, post a question specific to the problem. This is a huge thread an most people won't read all the things.
  • I might not have Internet access in the next few days, so if you do have a question, either make it clear
  • How do I turn on System Recovery?
    How do I turn on Hibernation?
    How do I change page file size?
  • or open a new thread for that issue/question.......

Great work Bill, great work!

I'll be here also, just in case. Even though I'm under the weather I try to check my email notifications once a day.

I think that would be okay John. There could be some things Ty wouldn't necessarily want to use like Silverlight, and the Bing toolbar.

Ty you could follow this: Windows Update Settings - Change the first and second screenshot in step #3 will show you how to change it to "Check for Updates, but let me choose", and then make any added modifications you want in the steps that follow.

From my corner Ty, your welcome.
My apologies for bowing out at the beginning of this past week, I overextended myself here at home the week before and it lead me to coming down with a bugger of a cold, almost like the flu. I'm really woosey, and couldn't concentrate.

Ty, I want to commend you on your computer skills, there were a lot of complex instructions to follow and you performed admirably, I repped you for it. Bill and John will also see a little something in their stockings to.

I agree with Bill, this is a very long thread and it took a while to try different things to troubleshoot until Bill finally decided to try Partition Wizard in Post #57, and it started to go your way from there.

If the 1071 continues to work okay for the next few days and you're content with it you could mark this/your thread solved, there should be a green "Solved" button next to the orange "Post Reply" button you can click on, down in the lower left corner. It will help other members that may have similar problems with their Mini's.
