    107289No. The second time I accidentally sent a PM half way through writing it in one day. CJ hasn't got back to me even though he promised it'd be today so he's got another PM from me, this time fully written.
    Fools need no explanation, they are simply fools.
    Whoops, did you accidentally write only half of CJ's PM? Hopefully he'll get back soon, though it'll probably be tomorrow now as it's outside office hours.

    Yep, fools are fools!

    107,301 - missed the 100 by one post but hey ho!

    Also just had to sort out a problem with my parents' HP machine. The reports were that it was really slow and CORE TEMP was showing unusually high CPU temps.
    Had a look into it and Windows Update was using over 50% CPU, whilst doing absolutely nothing!
    Process "svchost.exe" was responsible, taking an indepth look it was Windows Update and every time I stopped it, it restarted itself.
    Had to do a System restore to 9/13/16 (Sept. 13th), which was when the last big lot of updates were installed.
    After a system restore and disabling windows update from services.msc, it seems like everything is OK now.

    Why does Windows 10 make it so difficult to stop pesky updates, that's the question...

    No thankfully not him. It may have been Ethan though when I asked him to fix the thread.

    P.S. Wrong number.

    Awesome, that's good to hear!

    I know, hopefully he stops soon

    Btw, only 1 more day to go before the weekend

    04MR17 okay, thank goodness the PM to CJ was ok! Maybe he has been exceptionally busy recently, so unable to do anything just yet...
