Renewed Microsoft Office 365 and for one week now my computer logs off after 15 seconds (hardly gives me time to put the kettle on, bastard!)


Anyway, tried all the usual tricks with Manual Repair, Power Save, links prescribed by Swisscom, nothing works. Apparently, it is a malfunctioning when updating / renewing and has been general for the last week or so. Of course, no way to join Microsoft for technical help. Anyone has been in same situation and found a solution, other than swearing at computer?
You must be a suspicious user?

This is an old report but maybe it enlightens you? I did not read it in detail.

Yes, I've done the USB with full OS setup.

I was just wondering, if I ever need to do a format C and install from zero, would I first have to put win-7 from my CD, then update win-10 from this USB stick.
No, that is the point you will simply install windows 10 from the USB and if the activation does not work (due to change in hard drive) then simply call Microsoft and they will remotely active your machine's windows 10 OS for you.

Not sure that's true, TBH. Sure, it won't be 'supported' after that date, but no reason it should suddenly stop working. Actually might run better as it won't keep trying to download understand updates every few weeks.
Yesterday's xkcd just about sums it up for me, although in my case the black line is much further right most of the time

Re: You can still get Windows 10 upgrade for free if you hurry...

A moody ba****d, windows 10 is. Didn't I know I wouldn't like it.

Over night it decides not, absolutely not to talk to the printer again. "Never, nope and I shall NOT tell you why either. Can't you sense the reason? No? You're so cold".

The next day it will refuse to connect to the wireless display adapter again. Guess the text would be "I transferred HDMI signals all night to your tv and you didn't even bother watching it. HA! Who do you think you are, wasting my time, I got better things to do". Not to forget the bit "and to teach you the lesson and make sure you don't forget it, I shall display "connecting to the device" on top of every blooming screen you will ever use although I'm just bluffing".

Jesus! Why did I get divorced?! At least there were some fun moments in between, unlike "living with" windows 10.

What this thing doesn't know yet: I shall win. I always do.


edit: This public rant and a real tasty dinner later this thing does know.

That's absolutely right. I have already a few Android apps saved as the newer versions don't do what I need. The same is happening with pc software. Long live Virtual Box!
