Windows 10-How I can disable every time login.

Question: Windows 10-How I can disable every time login.

Hello everyone. I got a question. How I can get auto-login on Windows 10? I did this thing in Windows 8.1, where I just need to go into the settings and uncheck one option. I can't get this same thing on Windows 10. When I change the settings of it (Settings->Accounts->Sign-in options) to "Never" nothing really changes because, I still need to type in my PIN code every time. How I can disable this and get auto-login into desktop/tablet mode like on Windows Phone?

Preferred Solution: Windows 10-How I can disable every time login.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There is at least one thread on WP central and several in Microsoft Communities about this. Apparently, many are having similar issues. Must be a bug and hopefully a fix will come soon.

Hello my friends,

I activated the ctrl alt disable login screen for Windows 10 by using this registry key from this forum.(Lock Screen - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums).

I downloaded and installed the key to disable only to find it didn't work so I tried to manually do it by changing the number from 0 to 1 only to find its already at 1.
I also tried going the user passwords2 to find the box to disable ctrl alt disable login is already ticked, but is greyed out meaning I can't untick the box.

Help I did try everything i could find on the internet, but to no avail.

Answer:Can't disable Ctrl Alt Disable on Windows 10 Login screen

Hello TheBlackRussian,

That tutorial is for disabling the lock screen itself instead. The lock screen cannot be disabled if you have the CTLR+ALT+DELETE secure sign-in enabled. If you wanted to keep the lock screen, then be sure to enable it again before doing the tutorial below.

You'll want to use the tutorial below instead to only disable secure sign-in.

This has never happened before. When I turn on the computer, the two accounts show up (both administrator) but whenever I click either of them, the screen just shows the Windows 7 login screen for a while without any text then sends me back to the account selection. This happens when I select either of the accounts, one of them also has a password but that doesn't show up either.

PLEASE HELP.
(also don't know a lot about computers ;-; )

EDIT : When I turned on the computer, it went through updates where it says Starting Windows with the Windows logo. Maybe this helps.

This is quite a confusing story, and the cause for it simply eludes me, but this will be the second time it has happened.

Basically, I was on Youtube through Google Chrome. Shockwave Flash crashed on me (and it is well known that Flash will often crash on Chrome), and when Chrome said I should end the process, I did. To attempt to restart Flash, I exited Chrome and clicked on it again to reopen it. It failed to come up. And so begins my real problem.

I try to open Task Manager through CTRL + Shift + ESC; fails to come up. I try CTRL + ALT + DEL as well; fails to come up. The computer begins to lag like crazy. I can't click on anything without having to wait for at least 5 minutes. I did try patience though, and the menus eventually came up, but still, movement was futile. My plan was to go in and hopefully find the process that was potentially lagging my pc. The strangest thing was that the CPU Usage was fine and barely went above 10-11%, and the Physical Memory was at 21%. So what could be affecting it and making it so slow if the processes are fine?

I then decided to restart my computer. It loaded the windows loading screen fine, but that first time the windows login screen took nearly 10 minutes to come up. When it finally did, I tried to login, it would take me to a black screen with just the mouse pointer in the dead center and nothing else within sight. The mouse was moveable, but there was nothing to click on.

I've tried a variety of solutions, from going into BIOS... Read more

This is a thing that was also on 8.1 (that I hated a lot) and i couldnt remove.
I have 2 accounts on my pc (home and my own account) and everytime i turn the pc on, the last account that was used logs in automatically (mine asks password actually, but the home's one doesn't, so it just logs in).
This is a thing i hate, since makes me waste time login out and login with the account i want to use.
Is out there any option for disable that? In 8.1 that wasn't possible.

Starting with the Fall Creator's Update (1709) the previously-utilized preventions for autologin no longer work. If you have an account with no password, but you don't want that account to log in automatically you previously had to have a logon script that would set


Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\UserSwitch\Enabled

to


Code:
1

*See How to prevent automatic login of the last user in Windows 10? - Super User

Unfortunately, with 1709 this no longer works because Windows appears to set the value back to 0 at login and logoff and who knows how many other places in between. This means that the value can no longer be set with login or logoff scripts as the process appears to run outside of that scope. Now, another fix on SuperUser involves changing registry permissions to the parent key to disallow SYSTEM access. (Can I disable auto logon on windows 10 home - Super User).

While this works, it isn't ideal in case I need to use a SYSTEM-based service in the future to change the value again. Is there a new methodology introduced in Windows 10 1709 (like a new group policy setting) that will disable auto login?

EDIT: Note that setting a password on the account is not a solution as the project requirements state that no password can exist. Imagine PCs in a library environment where a guest is using the PC.

Thanks,
Beems

Is it possible to make me login with my fingerprint and disable the possibility of logging in to windows with a password? I have the x301 ThinkPad, and I just fresh-installed windows 8. So I went to the lenovo drivers section and downloaded "lenovo fingerprint reader". But whenever I log into windows I can use my fingerprint, but it is silly that I have a cool fingerprint feature but I can still log in with a password... Help??

Answer:Can I disable windows 8 password and login only with my fingerprint?

I think that is not a great idea. If the weather is very dry for some time, the fingerprint reader works less well. I often have problems at high-altitude, where humidity is low, especially in the winter, where the house needs to be heated.

Hi everybody,

I wish to disable the account picture on my login screen. That is to say, I want a flat-coloured screen, which displays the user/account name and the password line only as I prefer a clean slender design.

I already disabled the login screen background towards a flat-coloured one using the following registry hack:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
?DisableLogonBackgroundImage?=dword:00000001

____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _
At this point my message should end, but since I busied myself with this registry topic, I started to wonder how to define not rename) the name of a DWORD/registry key at all:

- How can I know, what is the right wording/coding for a DWORD in order to make it work properly? How do I know, which expression does Windows recognize? Is there any library or handbook?
- How can I know whats the right path/directory, where a DWORD/registry key needs to placed?

I dont expect you to answer the bundle of last questions, since they do not belong to my thread initiation - so it is still just about the account picture.
Nevertheless I would deeply appreciate any buzzwords or hints you may have in mind, that help me to get a bit deeper into the adressed matter, as I am keen to learn and improve.

Many thanks in andvance!!!

ummm.... i dont have any experience with FPreaders.... but i am going to take an educated guess and say that this is in the bios settings maybe. You can access your bios usually by hitting Delete during p.o.s.t check (where it displays your cpu, memory, etc). Navigate around somewhere there in the bios and look for settings related to the FP recognition... may be around the same place the "boot up" password is located... or integrated peripheals is another spot.

A couple weeks ago, my Windows 10 computer started taking a LONG time to login. The times have been going up and down, with a max of about 15.5 minutes, which happened today. Here's what I've tried to solve this issue:

1. Do a clean boot (no startup programs or services other than Microsoft services).
2. Defrag/optimize hard drive (not SSD).
3. Run CCleaner and Malwarebytes.
4. Check the Event Viewer.

Here I found multiple warnings and errors:

1. Event 6005, The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> is taking long time to handle the notification event (Logon).
2. Event 7022, The Connected Devices Platform Service service hung on starting. (and a few like it, only with different services)
3. Event 6006, The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> took 936 second(s) to handle the notification event (Logon).
4. Event 6004, The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> failed a critical notification event.
5. Event 6001, The winlogon notification subscriber <Sens> failed a notification event.

After some googling, I continued with the following steps:

5. Disable "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" and "Run logon scripts synchronously" in the Group Policy Editor.
6. Do an in-place upgrade/repair.

There are probably some other steps I've missed, but I think that covers most of it. I'm fed up with this problem, but I really don't want to have to reinstall Windows. If anyone has any solutions or idea... Read more

Generally disabling a program turns it off, will not be running either in foreground or background.

I've searched everywhere for a solution to this but have not found anything outside of restarting the machine.
I need to limit a Windows 7 computer to only allow one user logged in at a time. This machine has applications only allow one user to run them at a time. So if a user locks this machine and walks off and if the next user switches user and logs in, none of
the programs will work because the first user's session is now suspended.
Is there anything that will kick the suspended user off? So if a user forgets to log out and the screen is locked, the second user's login would force the first user to log off?

Answer:Limit a Windows 7 machine to 1 user login at a time

You can disable the locking function altogether so the initial user can't occupy the machine. (They will have to log off or risk leaving the machine unattended while still logged in.)
It is a registry change, check out:

I dont know why this popup is coming.

Using HijackThis.exe i scanned the system.

please help me how to resolve this problem.

Answer:Windows cannot find rundll.exe at the time of windows login

Welcome to Major Geeks!

This is not a malware problem and as such I will be moving to the Software Forum for continued support.

You are missing a file that is part of Windows. You need to restore the file from either a copy of your PC (which you can search for) or from your CD. If Windows 2003 supports the System File Check command, you can run sfc /scannow from the Start, Run, box and it may be able to replace the file for you. It could also ask for your Windows 2003 CD if it cannot find a suitable copy on your PC.

When you are remote connecting do you have the option to map printers enabled? If it is enabled, uncheck the box to map printers and then try again and see if the printers attempt to or succeed in auto-installing. If not check out the following:

Check the default user profile for an entry in Start Menu\Programs\Startup and see if there is a utility there.

You can load up the default user profile in regedit and check the profiles HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run or ...\RunOnce and see if there are any entries for this app that keeps running.

You might find the entry in a location similar to the registry key I mentioned above except that it resides in HKU\.Default\....

There are a couple of other methods but I doubt the software would go through the trouble to automatically setup printers for each user that logs on.

Because you have only one account on the desktop and no password or it is tweaked to auto login.

Up till the last patch tuesday I had successfully disabled the "Insert Smartcard" login option on my win7 x64 laptop. Its been running like this for over a year. After the last set of updates it returned to my login screen.

I've tried editing the regisrty and disabling the smartcard provider. Yet it still remains a login option.

I've disbaled the smartcard in the group policies as a logon option. Yet it still remains.

I've disabled the smartcard service and while this fixes it in the current session when the machine is reboot the service is reset to automatic (after I set it to manual).

There seems to be no manner in which I can get rid of the opton.

I have attempted to remove the login by following directions to a screen that has a list of users and a checkbox that says user must enter username & password.

I can only remove it from the third item on the list. It doesn't fix the windows 8 login problem.. I have tried selecting the other 2 on the list, I can't select them I have tried everything I can think of, nothing works.

I think if I could get to the second one, it also may fix a problem I have in my Comcast email area which refuses to save my password login there, even though cookies are enabled, and I have tried to select "save password" a million times.. I am in password hell at work, now I am being forced to be in password hell at home..
Extra problem is that the password they want me to have is something I set up to match my work password at the Microsoft forums.. It was about six months back, later my company forced me to add one more forced item of a capital letter, so my work password has a changed capital letter to it.. I can't change my home password, because MS sees a change of just a capital letter as "not good enough".. So I am constantly typing in my work password to get an error, then at work I am starting now to forget to capitalize.. It is insane.. I swear the more people force password requirements on you the more insecure you get as you have to start writing them all down.

Answer:Attempt to disable login failed

Well I will have to restore from the saved system backup.. Trying to kick the password in, somehow corrupted the userID system. This is some of the things I tried, until I broke it.

I figured out that I could not choose a different item on the list unless I put back the force password on the helpLibrary icon.. From reading I found that even though my userID was the Admin account it wasn't reflecting it on this account. I fiddled around try to get the Admin to show up on my userID, creating another userID for admin, then removing admin from my real account, then putting it back on.. Did nothing.. Then I found that I could get Admin on it through the UsersAccount, where there was a place (I think in advanced, but maybe under properties) where I could choose Administrator..

I then found out that no matter how many times I tried to uncheck the user that was admin, when I went out and came back in the unchecked item was forced to be only that of the helpLibrary..

I then tried the second user ID account I had created.. It after playing in that one, I finally got it to save the uncheck of the UserID that was my real account.. I thought I did it, but actually it now in the list pictured above that my real account was still there, but, my temp account would not let me switch users back to it because it did not think I had any other user profile.. When you went to the control panel and look, my reall user profile was no longer listed, just my temp one and guest.. When I tried to re... Read more

For whatever reason Skype has been automatically logging in every time I start my PC up. I did not change this myself. Regardless, I would like to disable it. Back when programs were not meant for slobbering tablet idiots there would have been an easily accessible setting in the options menu, however, such advanced features do not seem to be present in the latest version of Skype.

Essentially I want the program to run at start up, but I just do not want it to sign me in.

When I sign out it gives me a check box with the option to automatically sign in, which is currently unchecked. So that clearly will not help me as it already automatically signs in.

Is there any work around for this aside from creating a new account?

One of these days, we'll be back to 1998 computing standards and efficiency thanks to crap like Windows 8 and the iPad. It fucking pisses me off that they have to "steam line" the ever living fuck out of a program and cut basic features or throw them under 15 layers making it damn near impossible to access.

I accidentally disable the user profile including admin user and thus can't login to window

Answer:can't login due to disable any user profile

Log in with safe mode and log onto the built in Administrator users. When it asks for password enter try blank as often the Administrators password is not set when Windows is installed. If blank doesn't work you need to ask whoever set up Windows.Normally Windows will not allow you to disable all admin user account, it forces you to keep at least one active to avoid problems like this. Which leads me to suspect that the problem is something else.Stuart

I have an HP dv4-1430us laptop which does NOT have a fingerprint scanner. It came with Vista. With Vista, whenever the computer was started up it immediately went to my login screen and was prompting me for my password. All I had to do to login was start typing. Since upgrading to Win 7 (home premium 64 bit), whenever I start the computer I have a choice of login options. Instead of just typing my password, I must first click on either my login name or on the 'DigitalPersona' fingerprint logo. It's not like this is a major issue, clicking only takes a few seconds, but since I don't even have a fingerprint scanner....

Can anyone tell me how to disable the fingerpring login option? I tried searching, but could only find threads offering help to get it working, not removed. DigitalPersona does show up on my 'remove program' list, but I wasn't sure if that would just confuse Win 7 upon startup and lock up the computer.

My users have finally become a little more used to Windows 7 netwrok login boxes with the tweaks that Hide Last User Name and other customizations. However, one major annoyance I would like to see go away is the default option that reverts to log into local PC if you mis-type domain login.

For example, via GPO I have the default domain to log into set. But if the user makes a typo and the computer denies domain login access it immediately switched to "Log on to: Local PC Name" assuming you must not have meant login to domain. But the users dont catch this and knwoing they just made a typo re-enter the login info for the domain. But now its set for Local PC and, of course, it again doesnt allow them access because all my usewrs dont have local accounts.

Way to fix it so it always stays with domain as target and no option for local (unless of course you knwo to ass the prefix localPCname\username)?

Answer:Hide / Disable Local PC login option?

im pretty sure local login cannot be disabled since it is used in recovery instances were the domain server is not active.

Hi everyone

See also: Ease of Access Center - Add or Remove from Logon Screen

I search a long time for a solution to disable the "Ease of Access" Button on the login screen on Windows 7 _x86 and _x64. I found a solution, but this was only for the x86 version of Windows 7. If you use this version on a _x64 machine, the login screen remains black .

Microsoft did not include the function to disable the "Ease of Access" button on the login screen and this can be very dangerous within a multi user environment. This button is hard coded within the login UI. Therefore no regkey or something else is available to disable it.

Out of this case I patched the authui.dll. This dll is responsible for the login screen and the shitty button.

I made two ready pachted dll files. One for the x86 and one for the x64 operating system of Windows 7. The version of the files are from the original Windows 7 DVD and the version Nr. of the dll's are: 6.1.7600.16385. You can use this files on every language version of Windows 7 because this files are language independent.

What was made - if you want to do it with your files by yourself:
1. Download Resource Turner (the version 1.99 can only handle x86 files!) or use Restorator 2007 Patch 2. This version can handle both x86 and x64 files.

Hi. My girlfriend setup Skype on her Windows 8 laptop and now every time she starts the laptop it asks for her Microsoft account password and connects online. She wants to work in private and does not want to connect to Microsoft every time the pc starts (if this is what's happening).


How can she change her Windows configuration back so that no login password is required at start up.

Answer:Disable Skype login at laptop start

Hello Rally, and welcome to Eight Forums.

It sounds like she switched to using a Microsoft account to sign in to Windows instead of a local account when she setup the Skype app.

Signing into Windows with a Microsoft account would let her use modern apps that use a Microsoft service, and be able to download apps from the Store.

If she would like to keep using a Microsoft account, then she could use the tutorial below to set Windows to automatically sign in to her account at startup.

Before v1607, I used the gpedit logon script to disable the automatic login of non-passworded accounts. It's been fine for all the time I've been with Win10 since release.
Specifically:

Code:
Name: C:\Windows\System32\reg.exe
Parem: ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\UserSwitch /V Enabled /T REG_dWORD /D 1 /F

Since v1607 hit, it has stopped working. So I tried this instead, and the keys/strings were already set as it says so on the guide--so nothing to do there.

Does anyone else have any suggestions? Other than adding a password to this one account or having to type in a username/path to login (this account is for family members). Or did Microsoft bork something again?

Before v1607, I used the gpedit logon script to disable the automatic login of non-passworded accounts. It's been fine for all the time I've been with Win10 since release.
Specifically:

Code:
Name: C:\Windows\System32\reg.exe
Parem: ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\UserSwitch /V Enabled /T REG_dWORD /D 1 /F

Since v1607 hit, it has stopped working. So I tried this instead, and the keys/strings were already set as it says so on the guide--so nothing to do there.

Does anyone else have any suggestions? Other than adding a password to this one account or having to type in a username/path to login (this account is for family members). Or did Microsoft bork something again?

So at some point in time I enabled skydrive sync, as a result I have to login to my live account on every boot and some new folders in explorer, which doesn't do anything for me. What's the safe way to disable it? I don't care about skydrive sync as I'm already doing regular system images.

Answer:Disable skydrive sync and login without nuking system?

Hello RoadToNever,

Just to try and clarify things a bit, when you sign in to your Microsoft account at startup, that is to sign in to Windows 8/8.1 instead.

SkyDrive is not related to backup or system image. Think of SkyDrive has just an online hard drive that makes sharing files with other PCs and storing files away from your PC easier to do.
If you wanted to have Windows sign you in automatically at startup, then the tutorial below will help show you how to.
Log On User Account Automatically at Windows 8 Startup

If you wanted to disable SkyDrive integration, then the tutorial below will help show you how to.

Hi everyone.

I'm running Windows XP. Whenever I enter an incorrect password about 6 times in a row, all fields on the login box become disabled for approximately 30 seconds. How can I disable/turn off the 30-second delay?

PS: This was originally posted in the Windows XP section, but I'm not sure if it's supposed to go here, so moderators/admins please move this to the correct section.
 

Answer:Disable delay on multiple failed login attempts

The 30-second feature is there as a security measure. Is there a particular reason why you'd want to enter a wrong password 6(+) times in a row or circumvent that feature?

Simple create a batch file and save it on remote host: put this command in the batch file if the remote host is Windows 10, change the session ID 1 to 0 if it's a legacy Windows:

Code:
tscon.exe 1 /dest:console

Because the tscon.exe needs to be run elevated (as administrator), create an elevated shortcut for your batch file and place the shortcut on desktop of the host. Now when you want to disconnect the session and unlock the remote host restoring the local user's desktop, simply double click / tap the shortcut.

Check this tutorial at our sister site the Seven Forums for creating an elevated shortcut: Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User - Windows 7 Help Forums

Dear Friends,

I am on a Home Network Group having 4 computers with Windows 7
My main PC have some usefull files and folders, which I shared for sharing on my Laptop (within smae home group).
But, I want to disable sharing for other PC's
Or want to disable auto login to access shared folders on network.

I already used clearing the saved login credentials, but it works only first time access (ask for ID and password) but after first login it never ask the credentials again.

Means I want to make such thing that every time if any user (on other PCs) try to access the shared folder, he should be ask for user ID and password.
It may be by windows default feature (if any) or through any other third party software.
So, please help me on this issue.

Messing with the auto log in won't give you what you want here. And password protected sharing has some glaring faults of remembering passwords which make it not really worth using.

So you want the shared folders on the laptop and the main PC to have exclusive sharing between them. The other two machines you want to prohibit access to the shared folders on both the main PC and the laptop.

It's very simple to do this. Remove the two machines that you want to restrict access for from the Homegroup. Homegroup - Leave

This will prevent them from accessing shared folders on the Homegroup machines unless you share each Library with "Everyone&q... Read more

Alright so for some reason ever since I've "upgraded" to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 I've been having numerous issues with my computer taking a very long time to boot and I've noticed it is logging me in sometimes without asking me for my password at boot. I really want to stop the black screens as waiting 5-10 minutes every time I turn my computer on is annoying. Also I don't see why it would log me in without prompting for my password as why else would I have a logon password? Please if someone knows how to fix my slow boot with black screen where it seems to be sometimes logging me in automatically that would be great thanks!

Back in January of this year, the United States Department of Homeland Security advised PC users to disable Java from their web browsers following the serious zero-day vulnerabilities discovered in Java. In response, Oracle released an emergency Java patch, but the fix was not meant to patch all the critical vulnerabilities.?​Staying protected against Java exploits is a rising concern among millions of Windows®, Mac OS®, and Linux® users. What makes this exploit such a big deal is the fact that Java runs on more than 850 million personal computers and on billions of devices worldwide, including mobile devices and TVs1. http://www.superantispyware.com/blog/2013/04/is-it-time-to-disable-java/

Hi,

As the title suggests, I'm having a problem logging into my account when I start my computer. (Admin account, I have no other accounts)

Once I type in my password and press enter, the password box is replaced by the loading circle. It stays in this state for a few minutes, before reverting back to an empty password text box. No error message or notification is given at any point. Repeat login attempts do not work.

The only solution that works is if I repeatedly restart my computer. Eventually after a restart, it will login without any problems. This happens after quite a few attempts though.

I've got no idea what to do about this, or how to solve it. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Question: First time Login.

Hi Guys,

First post so it will be great to see how good you all are

I am running a system of VM's, we use appsense to keep all the setting mandatory. Appsense runs the second you log in. My trouble is that we set our default printers etc in this software though after this process Windows treats your login as a first login, therefore in the top left corner you see the message " Windows is customizing, Internet explorer, media player" etc.

My question is, how do is stop windows from running this, what is the registry key that carry's this out?

Any help would be great!

THANKS!!

Since version 7 Internet Explorer changes the "modified" time stamp of a *.url (favorites / bookmark) file when used. It changes it to the current date, so that you can see when you last used the link.

I want to disable this function because it interferes with my file synchronisation program. My synchronisation program sees it as if the url was changed, which is awkward as it isn't changed, only the modified attribute is updated.

Can this be done?

Answer:Disable URL time stamp change with IE7

Find your Favorites and click on the top folder and set the "Read Only" attribute for all files and sub folders.

To connect to the internet using my old IBM notebook 600e, I just boot up or come out of standby mode; click on browser (IE) and it's always ready to go. With the newer Lenovo T61, I must disable the connection before I go on standby, or problems usually result. When I come out of standby, I must enable connection; otherwise the little computer icon is missing from the lower right bar and there is no "repair connecytion option." If I click on "view available networks," none are found. Then it is difficult to get things going again. I use a siemens modem and a Belkin router, but doubt these are responsible as the 600e has no problem.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I'd especially appreciate a list (however short or long) of possible things to check.

I've only had Windows 10 for a few days and it's already annoyed me more than XP and Vista ever have combined. Right now my problem is the damn thing keeps enabling real-time protection for no apparent reason. I'm confused, was this software developed by primates by any chance? Humans? Then what part of "TURN OFF" don't they understand?

How can I get back control over my computer from this POS operating system? Is that possible? 'Cause if it's not, f*** this. I'm so fed up with Microsoft and their bullshit. I'm not even going back to Windows 8, I'm switching to Linux. I don't give a damn if I won't be able to use most of my programs, beats having to deal with this piece of crap.
