New O.S. Install I.E. or SP1 first

Windows 8

Hello, I realize this is an OLD O.S. question but......... because MS is ending Vista in two months, I had to reinstall my corrupted Vista Business OS right now. I still had my brand new 7 disc Vista Business package. It went in real well and did 101 updates so far and activated fine. I still have my SP1 and SP2 discs, along with an I.E. 9 disc to install yet. My question is: Which should I install first, IE9 or SP1? Many thanks for the help you all provide. Mike

Windows 8

Is it possible to Back-Up BitLocker and TPM Recovery Information to AD DS for Windows 10 version 1607 with Server 2012-R2 ? I see from the table at this link: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows/keep-secure/trusted-platform-module-services-group-policy-settings That the setting to: Turn on TPM backup to Active Directory Domain Services is not available for Windows 10, version 1607 and Windows Server 2016. Does anyone know whether or not it is available for Windows 10, version 1607 and Server 2012-R2 ? Thanks. Regards, Chris Bishop

Microsoft Office Fonts - Publishing and ebooks

Windows 8

Hi we are currently in the process of self-publishing a novel online and in print. So here are my questions are MS Word fonts allowed to be reproduced for commercial printing purposes? Can I use it for my ebooks etcetera? Are any of the MS Word font open source? My current thinking is that since I am not actually reproducing the font set that it should be fine, it would be like any printed document for commercial use? Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated Kind Regards Krys

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986) GET IT OFF

Windows 8

Let me start by saying "I DO NOT WANT THIS STUPID UPDATE ON MY COMPUTER" every single time it downloads it kills my webcam, it kills my ability use an external webcam, and after 20 hours it kills my ability to log on to the internet. I do not want this thing on my computer. I have turned off auto updates, only to find it turned back on, I have contacted the help desk and hat them turn it off and remove this whole update from my computer and block it from redownloading. Well guess what, it's back!. So for the billionth time this week I have to spend a lot of unnecessary time uninstalling it, disabling auto updates and trying to locate everything the freaking computer lost when it autorestarted (despite that also being turned off). How do I perm stop this pain in my butt update from ruining my computer??????????????? Windows 10 updates have already destroyed 2 of my computers, and I'm sick to death of it.I would go back to win 7 if they hadn't jacked the prices up so bad.

targeted read test and smart short shelf test fail

Windows 8

Had problems with my Lenovo ideapad 305 over the weekend that stopped my opening. All i could get was a blank screen with the whirling dots and after about a minute they stopped and left me with a black screen that i could move the curser on but would not open. I tried all the usual reset, repair etc but nothing would help me continue. After talking to John Lewis we eventually found the Onekey reset and carried out the required reatart. Everything worked fine until i updated windows(10) and then had the same problem. I applied the Onekey reset again and carried out the hardware check and it shows up with the targeted read test and smart short shelf test fail before i updated or installed anything and gave me a code but i cannot find where to send it. Also now when i open it says repaired drive D 100% every time i open up? Now going to apply the updates again but hoping someone can help with the fails or where to send the fail code or even why the laptop failed over the weekend. Thanks in anticipation

Audio issues

Windows 8

I have a ASUS X555LA laptop and use windows 8.1. After my last update my sound is not working. On the bottom right bar the sound icon has a red ex on it and when I click on it it trouble shoots the problem ( does not fix it or say what is wrong) and when I hold my pointer over it it says "no audio output device installed". When I open the sound window from the control panel it also says " no audio devices are installed" under the playback tab. I've tried all of the fixes posted on the community but nothing helps. I even formatted my laptop . How do I fix this!!???
