Tech Short: Windows 10 Network Adapter Properties Causing Crash

Attempting to assign a static IP address to my workstation I encountered an issue causing explorer.exe to crash and restart.  The only message in the event log indicating an error was:

After much searching it seems that an security update KB3074681 introduced a bug which is causing this issue

Removing this and restarting my workstation has resolved the issue. I don’t see me updating this workstations network adapter after this so I will be reapplying the update.

Spartan Falls to the Sword of Microsoft Edge

Agreed my post title is a bit dramatic; I am still rolling with it.

Announced in Build 2015, Microsoft Edge will be the successor to the Project known as Spartan

Microsoft Edge was made specifically for Windows 10. It will have features such as built in note taking and sharing and will also have Microsoft’s Cortana digital assistant built in.

As always the new is on its way fast via Build 2015

Windows 10 – Cortana and search stopped working – build 10041

 

When I first installed Windows 10, Cortana was working

 

I didn’t jump into using it right away but later came back to find that it no longer functioned at all.

“Are you mad bro” comes to mind.

 

I would like to avoid a clean install to get this working but seem that this may be the only option until I can understand what I changed or what has updated to cause this.

I am using the Windows 10 Preview build 10041

 

Could it be Chrome?  For now its a unknown.

 

Windows 10 Windows Updates using P2P Technology

Hey Folks,

It seems that Windows 10 has the capability of downloading Windows updates using a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol. Seems like a smart move to deliver their software to end users. After all we are all connected these days.

The new option that allows Windows 10 users to enable this feature that will speed up downloads due to its ability to download apps and OS updates from multiple sources to obtain them more quickly. Updates with a Bit-torrent twist.

These setting to be made to allow only updates from local networked peers or anyone available on the internet.
