Wait.. all of those trainers in CheatHappens is using IE to handle all the authentication?

If this is the case, then this is really terrible idea. This would explain why I am having issue with some trainer crashed without any reason. It usually crash when I unfocus the trainer while it was loading up.

All those remaining pre Win10 need some kind of program that would force to use the offline key while connected to the network.

How is it a bad idea? Currently the only DLL files that are guaranteed to be on the system are the ones from IE because it is a component of Windows. There is no reliable way to detect a user's default browser from a coding standpoint (using Firefox? Which one? Chrome? Which Channel? Using the ancient Safari? WTF is Opera? How the hell did you get KDE and use Konqureor?). There are a metric ton of browsers out there and account for all of them is simply infeasible.

You don't realize it but even if you have some other default browser, you still use IE technology all the time (several components of Windows such as the Management Console all depend on IE's DLL files).

Found out the source of the mic issue. Apparently on the cord of my headset is a hardware mic mute switch. It was on mute.

Microsoft has a big issue in connecting with where people and things are going. Yeah, they've got lucky a few times, sure. It seems to me that for the last 15 years they've been behind the curve on every from smartphones and tablets to Xbox zero.

For example, all you have to do is ask the average consumer if they would want a 'metro ui' on their PCs. Unless you have a tablet or touchscreen, obviously not.

They could have also asked if requiring an internet connection 24/7 to play games you paid for was cool with consumers. But instead the tried to be 'innovative' and mucked it up.

I'm seeing an unusual volume of feedback regarding issues with the Steam client. I haven't seen them myself so no idea what the causes would be.

PS: Although Windows 10 new builds are installed through Windows Update, it still dumps an ungodly amount of data into the windows.old folder. Remember to run disk cleanup after grabbing a new build to claim back quite a bit of space.

Yes but I'm sure you'll agree it's always best to format and fresh install new os.
Yeah its a lot of work reinstalling all the programs and tweaking WIN the way you liked it but it will definitely save you a lot of headache down the road.

Strongly disagree. I have yet to run into a problem going through purely in-place upgrades since Windows Vista (To 7, 8, 8.1, and all the builds of Windows 10). Those whom advocate fresh installs due to "headaches" of in-place upgrades sound to me like they're lacking in ability to care for their OS installation.

I'll take running disk cleanup once over re-installing everything and refreshing from a backup an yday.
