Windows 11 update was almost perfect & how to delete the old windows folder

Windows 11 update was almost perfect & how to delete the old windows folder

I have been watching and waiting for the update to win 11 mainly for the improved interface and gaming features improvements including the full direct x 12 experience.

With some similarities to Apple osx it provides a clean interface and in my opinion is an overdue improvement.

The first option presented to me was I would be invited to update in the future e.g via the windows update system.

I jumped the wait and downloaded the update from Microsoft and 40 minutes later Windows 11 was working.

I will add the laptop is relatively new and I had nothing of value on it.

So what’s it like, well after a small adjustment trying to look for search which is now a magnifying glass mostly other than the smart layout and new feature which rock such as Teams built in I can say I am happy and will test out some games later.

Everything has worked with only one small niggle which is the windows.old folder the one used for upgrade which can be deleted is arguing about admin auth to delete it, all the usual tricks have failed so far so work in progress and considering the size of the update and past Microsoft failings during update that’s not bad.

On further investigation, elevated command prompts and elevated actions the windows.old still would not delete, I looked in the properties of the drive and could not initially see the clean up old windows installation, on looking further I found the button clean up system which then shows the old windows folders and removed them.

I suspect this is to prevent the muppets out there complaining due to Microsoft oversite and ensuring they can go back to windows 10, good and bad in that.

There’s certainly sense in waiting for some in critical environments or with older hardware otherwise I can see no reason not to upgrade.

Well done Microsoft.

Tpms and your PC is not compatible, were all for improved security however many of us have older systems and even AMD boards and chips, you may well find it says your system is in compatible, our recommend approach is to simply wait for Microsoft to address this issue through the normal upgrade and procedure built into Windows.

I do feel this has some elements of forcing consumers to buy new hardware certainly those less astute to upgrade and I should point out it is possible to install a secondary tmps module if your board is lacking however we feel that this is not something long standing Windows users should be pushed into and wonder if this is also industry making us all upgrade and not just for improved security e.g profit.

In the present the shortage of chips makes buying any new hardware expensive and often there is no stock, Microsoft should put more effort into educating the consumer and have some consideration for those who cannot afford new hardware and opt for other systems other than Intel based products.

There’s certainly sense in waiting for some in critical environments or with older hardware otherwise I can see no reason not to upgrade.

Well done Microsoft.

Red dead redemption 2 what took me so long

Red dead redemption 2 what took me so long

So many years have passed since I purchased the original Red dead, i really wanted to play it but life as it often does got in the way and to be honest we were not really into this type of multiplayer at the time so although purchasing at the time for the Xbox and PC it did not get very much attention. 

Time passes and I find myself as with many over the last years with a little more downtime and thought ohh, I bought Red dead 2 on the PC and have not played it yet. I started on the single player some time ago and the story is excellent however really wanted to get into the online play but was worried about the grind, yes the early points are frustrating as much of the content doesn’t appear until you progress. 

Bounty hunter, the only thing i am missing is some form of badge rather than my bounty hunter hall pass.

After more than a few hours play, well days on and off, I have progressed to a level 21 bounty hunter and am loving this game, certainly its no historic documentary but its just fun, from hunting down story villains to progressing towards hunting players and an occasional treasure hunt it is keeping me occupied.

I need to say it was not an easy task to work out this game, it seems sometimes to go out of its way to hide function, e.g go online, join free roam, then press L to find your friends and if possible join a posy. 

However once mastered everything seems to work, there is the grind and pressing V helps a lot if you have a route set.

The millennial factor, lets be clear as with all games and yes I know its not just millennials some just want to create chaos, it can be frustrating when someone just decides to shoot you, however there is some good news, you do not lose your hard earnt gear and if your a member of a posy most soon get lost lmao. 

In summery if your prepared to work at it and be patient then the game rewards, no you do not need to buy gold just watch a few videos and work out how to progress, I am certainly going to be playing this on and off for years to come and am pleased I found the time and can recommend this game. 

As a final thought, omg some of the visuals are simply incredible. 

Desperados III

Desperados III

Deporados 3 was recently on sale on steam, as many know I am a fan of strategy games and thought i would give this a go.

This game is frankly quite good, its certainly not action packed but very well made, to say its like playing chess is not a correct comparison however some of the strategy is similar. The basis is try and fail try again and again and to be honest it works although i suspect when one works out the optimal solutions this may become mundane.

The story is quite nice and overall if on offer its worth a try and as its steam if you keep to the return rules re time you can try it for free. 

 

Squid Game Netflix horror comedy or social commentary?

When one is bombarded by the adverts for a series sometimes you think your missing out but find the reality is somewhat different.

The series is well made and the acting quite good overall with the story progressing at most times quite rapidly.

You can see how the authors own debt and misery influenced the storyline but more worrying is the way that this is almost a documentary on social issues such as debt, death and the masses ridiculous facination with money and game shows.

It clearly shows the fragile nature of peoples lives there wish to be wealthy but little is said about the issues that arise from having wealth and the complications caused by introducing and managing money let alone the banking system trying to screw you over and the need to then bank offshore with all the issues that brings.

The grass is always greener on the other side comes to mind and the series highlights the misery of the life choices some are burdened often through the actions of others and poorly thought through social systems.

The rise of social media and the need for people to feel good about themselves to an extent of selfishness and greed is highlighted in this tv series but the issues go much deeper and it is no wonder people are hooked, its almost a was study of peoples lives and it is a sad statement of the human condition one that is being used rather than to educate instead it is being used to hook into peoples issues and in my opinion offers nothing other than reiterateimg the misery of society and all the problems human kind bring to the table.

If your looking for a misery fest to feed your struggling life with few constructive assistive comments on how to manage money and debt and want to feed into the social dystopia we find ourselves well many of you living in as you can’t turn it off or say no, good luck.
