Support for microsoft essentials extended

“Microsoft today announced it will continue to provide updates to its security products for Windows XP users through July 14, 2015. Previously, the company said it would halt all updates on the end of support date for Windows XP: April 8, 2014. For consumers, this means Microsoft Security Essentials will continue to get updates after support ends for Windows XP. For enterprise customers, the same goes for System Center Endpoint Protection, Forefront Client Security, Forefront Endpoint Protection, and Windows Intune running on Windows XP.”

Happy Birthday to Angelsey Computer Solutions

10 years ago this week I started Anglesey Computer Solutions after being made redundant.

Creat new windows user from command line

I had a pc with a corrupt user profile in today. As it was the only user profile on the PC I could not log in normally to transfer data or create a new profile. the solution was to boot to safe mode command line and create a new user from there …

Then boot back to normal windows and manage the data and accounts as normal.
