  1. I DID IT!!!!! 1,040,725 Credits as of now, 9:16 AM - PST on 1-9-2016!!!!! TL
  2. I'm 37,993 credits away from reaching my first Million Credits on [email protected]!!! (1-8-2016, 11:40 AM - PST) TL
  3. Just wanted to update, (though this is overdue), that Prometheus is NO LONGER a Pentium E-5200 system. Thanks to Guns, it is now a QX9650 Quad Core system. I did transfer the GTX-750 TI SC to it from the E-5200 MOBO. Been crunching SETI for awhile now. Unfortunately, SETI is currently out of GPU work. I have already switched Exeter, (my GTX-760 rig), to [email protected] Prometheus will follow suit tomorrow morning. Fold On everyone!!!!! TL
  4. SEE EDIT 3 In last post... Got it to work!!! Very finicky though... TL
  5. I CAN get into the BIOS... NO Safe Mode exists.... Unless I force it with msconfig.exe. TL EDIT: Two of the three Win 7 systems are HP; so, it could be that HP has had MS disable getting into Safe Mode, BUT I doubt it. The third Win 7 system is Guns' old Core 2 Extreme on Gigabyte MOBO. The two HPs are Win 7 Home Premium x64, and Prometheus, (Guns' old system), is Win 7 Pro x64. EDIT 2: Just tried rebooting Prometheus. Hit F5, and it worked. From there I hit F8 for Advanced Options, and got the Safe Mode Boot Menu. So, one system out of three works. Don't know why the HPs
  6. Nope, no luck with F5; either, system ignores it and boots to main login. There seems to be NO WAY to manually boot to Safe Mode in Win 7 x64. I assume that if there were a problem with normal boot that the system might then give the option of booting to Safe Mode; but, since all three of our Win 7 systems are fine, I have no way to confirm this. TL
  7. Will this method work in Win 7 as well??? I have found recently that Win 7, also, will NOT boot to Safe Mode using F8. TL EDIT: Just tried it in my Win 7 Pro x64 OS, and it DOES NOT work... Did some research and found that this same command works for Win 8/8.1; but, for Win 7 we all must use "msconfig.exe" in normal mode and select Safe Mode properties there, and then reboot into Safe Mode... Once in Safe Mode, and finished doing what needs to be done, you must then run "msconfig.exe" again and deselect the Safe Mode options and reboot back to normal mode. VERY disappoint
  8. UPDATE: The O&O software seems to work. I just recently completed a Cumulative Update for Win 10 which required a reboot of the laptop. Upon reboot and login, I went back into Win Update and checked settings there. The O&O restrictions were still in place. Cortana also remained disabled by O&O. I will keep monitoring dad's new laptop with Win 10 Pro and the O&O security software installed. If things change, or Win Update gets around O&O, I will let you know. TL
  9. The same NSA Anti-Privacy software in 10 is now being pushed through Win Update to Win 7, 8, and 8.1. Quote from Cosmic Ocean at [email protected], Number Crunching, Win 10 Yea or Nay Thread: "Add these two to the recently re-quoted list:: KB3075249 - adds telemetry points to consent.exe (sends your UAC decisions back to HQ) KB3080149 - UTC update for "down-level" devices (??? whatever that means. It's a 16mb update and modifies a LOT of files), but also, it says right on the MS page that it adds telemetry and tracking to help with the upgrade process. My friend that just decided to g
  10. The [email protected] WOW Contest is almost over. Then I can dedicate some GPU time to [email protected] I haven't forgotten you all, just been distracted for awhile. TL
  11. One thing to note using a DVD created with Media Creation Tool. Should the system in question be completely wiped, or if installing clean, then there will be no prior Windows Key for 10 to grab onto for "upgrading". In which case, the "clean" install will require a new purchased Key from MS to activate Win 10. This is being discussed by people in [email protected], Number Crunching, Win 10 Yea or Nay Thread. Many at SETI have already upgraded to, or installed clean, Win 10 and are using it without much issue. A couple people decided to Roll Back their install to the prior Windows Version - 7,
  12. If it turns out that your Win 7 H.P. system is in fact upgradeable to Win 10; make sure that when you install you choose "Custom" and NOT "Express". If you go "Express" it turns on ALL features; MOST of which are security hazards. Choose "Custom", and answer the questions it asks of you one at a time. MOST IF NOT ALL your answers should be "NO" to protect your privacy, stop ads, etc... I am a member of [email protected] which runs under BOINC software. The guys in Number Crunching gave me the above tips. They've been discussing Win 10 for a few months; some of them have been Testers for Win 1
  13. Thanks Guns. Yeah, boy HOWDY, do they ever!!! Can't wait to see what a week's worth of Folding will do. (The 760 in Exeter isn't really "new", though... It's solely been crunching SETI for a year. The 750 TI in Prometheus; however, is new to me, I got it used from another SETIzen.) TL
