Windows 10 update bug, build 1607, 9/24/2016

Windows RT

When I try to update Windows 10 to build 1607, 9/24/2016, it stops. ************************************************************************ OpenOffice 4.1.1 Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 10. *********************************************************** 3 different Microsoft technicians have spent 15 hours trying to uninstall every bit (app, folder, file, register of OpenOffice 4.1.1). They even ran two special software's that clamed to have power uninstalling every bit of an installation. The went into regedit, they searched in Windows explorer, they ran the troubleshooter, they did a system restore back to 9/24/2016 and still get the same problem. I think a developer needs to go in and fix this bug. Does anyone have any ideas?

How to set Firefox (Gmail) as Windows' default service for email links

Windows RT

OS: Windows 10 Is there any way to set Firefox as Windows’ default program for MailTo (email address) links? If not, can Microsoft please correct that defect? On my computer, the default MailTo program is now Chrome, and Gmail is Chrome’s default “handler” for email links . So, if you’re in Microsoft Word 2010 and you see the email address *** Email address is removed for privacy *** in your document, just Ctrl+Click on the email link; Chrome will immediately pop up and open a new Gmail tab with a new draft addressed to *** Email address is removed for privacy ***. That's great, but, for various reasons, I don’t use Chrome to compose emails; I only use Firefox (which is set to “Use Gmail” for "MailTo" content types). Yet when you try to change Windows’ default MailTo program in the control panel, Firefox is not listed as an alternative, even though FF functions just like Chrome with mailto protocols. The default mailto options available other than Chrome are Mail, Outlook, and “Look for an app in the [Microsoft online apps] Store.” And FYI the Store is useless here.) Is there anything, perhaps a regedit fix, or some other way to get Windows to recognize that Firefox can do what Chrome does with email links? Thanks

Notifications cause taksbar to lock up

Windows RT

I have noticed that some Windows notifications seem to lock up the taskbar for approx 60 seconds such that hovering over items in the taskbar or clicking them has no effect until a minute later when everything that was clicked all happen at once. The rest of the desktop is unaffected. It only appears to be certain application notifications and not every time. One such application is FileZilla, I have since disabled notifications from that. Another, today was the Office installer (for OneNote), upon completion it triggered a notification and the taskbar locked up. I only installed this W10 setup a couple of months ago and pretty much noticed the issue early on, so it's not a recent development. As this doesn't appear to be a common problem (web searches don't seem to find this exact issue) I'm guessing it's going to be hardware or software specific. Questions is, where do I start? Windows is all up-to-date, as are all drivers. One thought that crosses my mind is that I am running 3 monitors on 2 different graphics cards of slightly different models, a GeForce 210 and a GeForce GT 730... Would that be the first place to look (seems the most common place to look for desktop lock up related issues)? The issue affects the taskbar on all 3 monitors, BTW.

update KB3213986 causes system playback and sound functions to cease

Windows RT

Hi, I have been having issues with the latest update to windows10, titled: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986). I have allowed it to intall 3 times now, and after each completed update, my system playback and sound functions fail to be operable, whiles the speaker sound icon suggests nothing is wrong with the system. I have troubleshot my sound devices, disabled and reenabled my speakers and sounds, updated device drivers to no avail. software wise, all diagnostics I have run tells me the system is up and functional, but media won't usually playback, and when some even do, there is no sound output, either through the computer's own speakers or through the headphone. All functions however get restored when i roll-back the update via system restore. is it a problem with the update or with my PC? and how can i fix it? I use an HP 620, win 10 pro 64 bit (build 14393) Cheers

DISM RestoreHealth fails with Error: 0x80240021 even after doing Component Cleanup

Windows RT

I apologize for the long post in advance. I am detailing all the steps I took to fix this from previously asked questions. I am having problems with Windows Update getting stuck on "checking for updates". I tried running the Windows Update Troubleshooter and it says it fixed some errors, but the problem continues, and it seems to be fixing the same errors every time I run it. I am trying to implement the solution suggested by user rboy in this thread: http://superuser.com/questions/922261/windows-8-1-stuck-on-checking-for-updates?rq=1 I ran sfc/scannow and it gave me this message: C:WINDOWSsystem32>sfc /scannow Beginning system scan. This process will take some time. Beginning verification phase of system scan. Verification 100% complete. Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windirLogsCBSCBS.log. For example C:WindowsLogsCBSCBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios. I searched for a solution online and followed the answer in this post, that suggested running Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup command before Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth to fix the sfc issue. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-update/dism-online-restore-health-function-gets-error/4183685b-7d52-458c-b818-045369b98380 While component cleanup finished successfully, RestoreHealth ended with the following error: C:WINDOWSsystem32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool Version: 6.3.9600.17031 Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031 [==========================100.0%==========================] Error: 0x80240021 DISM failed. No operation was performed. For more information, review the log file. The DISM log file can be found at C:WINDOWSLogsDISMdism.log Here are the DISM and SFC logs: https://1drv.ms/f/s!Avzd_Hgdj4WQgQEePXNh_Ptaj16c It seems there is a loop here. DISM relies on Windows Update to repair the windows image, with Windows Update in turn being the broken component. From the CBS>log file, it seems the process fails because of no response from Windows Update. I am running Windows 8.1 that I upgraded to from Windows 8.0, for which I have an OEM license. I do not have any media to reinstall Windows. I am stuck. Any solution would be greatly appreciated.

Locked out of Skype and can't use Skype support

Windows RT

When signing into Skype, I was prompted to enter DOB. I mistakenly clicked on 2017 and then it locked me out with the following error message: Based on your age, we need your parent's permission before you can use this account. Using a web browser, sign in to account.microsoft.com to get your parent's permission and come back to try again. But when I try to access Help for Skype, it says I need to log in, which obviously I can't do. I can't even post this problem on the Skype help board without logging in. Can anyone please help me unlock my account, which I have been using as a grown man since at least 2003?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Frustrated!
