Can't buy from the store

Windows 10

Hello, My problem is that I can't buy anything from the store, because Maestro card type isn't on the list, even tried with choosing MasterCard, because it's "almost" the same but as I knew it just told me that the type of the card and the card number isn't matching. And ofc PayPal is not supported in my country. What is the possible way to buy from the store?! Or some countries just can't buy anything?!

Product Key Purchase

Windows 10

If I purchase the Windows10 Pro download, do I get the product key separately? I ask because we installed Windows 10 Pro on a machine from an image created as clone from an existing set-up, and now wish to activate (rather than doing a complete re-install), so will I get the key separate to the download, or is it embedded and thus forcing us to do a 'clean' install?

html icons turned into white pages for all icon sizes

Windows 10

Windows 10 on PC This morning all of the .html documents on my PC lost their icon. Currently all html files show a blank page. I tried changing their association to a different browser but that didn't fix it. As an experiment I tried associating them with Notepad, Word and even Windows Media Player and the icon still remained a blank white page. How can I fix this? Thanks! Here are my example images.

Resource Monitor and Task Manager showing incorrect CPU usage, or is my CPU capped at 33%?

Windows 10

Hi all, hoping someone can give me a clue as to what's going on. Running Windows 10 Professional, up to date, on a Toshiba Qosmio X70-A, i7-4700MQ @ 2.4 GHz, 32 GB RAM. Generally, I run most of my work on a work cluster, so I rarely make this machine work for all it has. However, lately I have been trying to parallelize some R code locally, and have noticed that both the Resource Monitor and Task Manager are reporting completely false values of CPU usage. For instance, in the screenshot below, each of 8 Rscript processes is using 12% CPU, and the total for all 8 is reported correctly, but the total cpu usage seems to be capped at 33%. The same problem is occurring in task manager - the details tab reports individual cpu usage correctly, but the total cpu usage seem to be capped at 33% for some reason. Now, it could be the case that the CPU is for some reason being capped at 33% and those 12% are per core rather than total usage. However, if that's the case, what in the world would be capping cpu usage? It's not power settings as far as I can tell. This isn't too heavy of an issue, but it has been problematic in terms of trying to optimize how much code I can run at any time.

Windows 10 Updates Slow Down or Freeze Computer

Windows 10

Every time Windows goes to download an update my computer either slows down to a crawl or I get the message that Microsoft Windows has stopped responding, then I restart my computer and have to wait for it to install updates and restart again. I've tried using the trick of setting wireless connections to metered and changing the settings to not download updates on metered connections but I do a fair amount of traveling and I don't always remember to set every wireless connection to metered. There HAS to be better way to either stop it from automatically downloading updates or to get it to at least WARN me when it's going to download updates so I can close down a few programs in hopes of it not freezing my computer.

PC connects to remote server via WiFi adapter, but not through hardwired connection

Windows 10

The company I work for has our Server located at another location. All of the staff at our site log in via SonicWall VPN and then Windows remote desktop. This weekend, I ran cable through the entire building so that the staff can connect a 1G vs. 144MB of the wifi. Every single computer connects but 1. This computer was connecting via a WiFi dongle, and if I disable the ethernet adapter, it still will connect to the server. The ip address for the computer is xxx.xxx.1.67 when it is wifi, and xxx.xxx.1.72 when it is hardwire connected. I thought maybe it was a conflict with the ip address, so I changed one of the printers on the network to be 1.72, so that the DHCP couldn't assign it to the pc in question. Re-started the PC, it has IP of xxx.xxx.1.69 and it still won't connect to the server. Any ideas what road to go down now? I'm confused that it works with wireless and not the hardwire. The log in is exactly the same....
