Auto updated Win7-64 to Win10-64. Now MS Lifecam Studio (webcam + mic) no longer detected.

Windows RT

Hi, I have a MS Lifecam Studio, worked 100% in Genuine Win7-64. Updated to Win10-64. Problem starts there. 1. Started OK when initially updated, in that Skype detected it, video appeared on screen, BUT, microphone not detected. So effectively useless. 2. When through the troubleshooter attached to the Lifecam Studio. Took it out of USB port, rebooted, re-attached. Now not detected. 3. Uninstalled the Lifecam Studio driver through Control Panel. removed it from USB port, rebooted, Reinstalled it. Not auto detected as a known device, although a system beep says the USB port knows "something" there. Still useless. 4. Downloaded the Lifecam Studio .exe file from MS Website, as outlined in the Troubleshooter. Installed it without issue. Run the installed software. Software works, but now doesn't see the webcam or microphone. Still useless. Did everything outlines in the Lifecam Studio troubleshooter, nothing gets the software to detect the Lifecam. Tried all the usual workarounds,, plug the USB cable into different ports, installed the software several times, multiple reboots. Can no longer get the webcam to be recognised as an MS device. Anyone have any ideas/fix why Win10 seems to have "lost" the ability to recognise a real MS webcam under genuine Win10. Thanks for your assistance, if you can help.

Paste password from Excel into Edge

Windows RT

I have all of my passwords in an Excel 2003 spreadsheet. When I need to enter a password at a website, I copy the password from the spreadsheet and paste it into the website's password box. I know, I could use a password manager, but I've done it this way for years. The spreadsheet itself is password protected, so if someone got the spreadsheet file they'd have to know the password to open the spreadsheet. Until recently, this worked fine. But recently (possibly started when I installed the November Windows 10 update) I've been having a problem. When I paste the password into a password box in Edge, it shows up as dots as usual. But then when I click on submit or go, I get a message saying that the password is invalid. I then have to manually type in the password. This isn't something with Excel, when I try pasting passwords in Opera and Chrome, they work. Is there a security (or registry) setting in Windows 10 or Edge that I need to change?

Win 10 and Geforce GT610 graphics card

Windows RT

I had win 10 running great in my 2008 Dell desktop pc, needed HDMI video out, installed a Geforce GT610 adapter, disabled onboard video, ended up with never ending driver issues. Installed fresh win 10 32bit on a fresh partition, drivers from Nvidia and worked decent. Using the pc to stream from Netflix, middle of a show win 10 downloaded a standard VGA driver, overwrote the Nvidia stuff and now only resolution is 800 x 600. Before I do something stupid, resulting in my opening statement, I need direction please help.

Windows freezes after recycling large files

Windows RT

I often record videos on my PC that end up becoming large 3.8 gb files, and some videos are trashed to the recycle bin. After having around 5 of those 3.8 gb video files in the recycling bin, I empty it. Right after emptying it, my computer freezes, leaving everything unresponsive other than being able to move around my cursor. Trying to open other files or launching programs just doesn't work. My cursor gets stuck with the loading animation every time I try to right click on the desktop. Even trying to restart my computer through the bottom-left windows icon is unresponsive. The only way I fix this is to shut down my PC completely and just turn it back on after a minute or so. I have not updated windows updates recently and no graphics cards driver either, this just started randomly. If you know any information about why this can be happening, that can be very helpful for me. Thanks!
