  1. Very Cool - Thanx for the heads-up Michael !
  2. That's a Shared Folder so its information would be used by both Profiles. However I renamed.. C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataStore\en-US. to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataStore\en-US.bak And then reloaded the Control Panel applet. No change. This is how it appears in the alternate Profile with the External USB v2.0 HD and External eSATA hard disk turned-on. Here it is still in my Day-2-Day Profile. I downloaded the MSI file, didn't install it though. I used Universal Extractor to extract the files. I then ran, DeviceMetadataWizard.exe It can Author, but does not Modify 'Device and Printers' Meta-Data.
  3. Yes. One Profile displays correctly and another Profile has a corrupted display in "Devices and Printers".

  5. LOL You'll just have to watch it and find out.
  6. In my reply, the two References cited had their URLs burred into one URL ( thanks to this Forum editor ). This has been fixed. There are now two distinct URLs cited in the References.
  7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase-change_memory "Phase-change memory (also known as PCM, PCME, PRAM, PCRAM, OUM (ovonic unified memory) and C-RAM or CRAM (chalcogenide RAM) is a type of non-volatile random-access memory. PRAMs exploit the unique behaviour of chalcogenide glass. In the older generation of PCM, heat produced by the passage of an electric current through a heating element generally made of TiN was used to either quickly heat and quench the glass, making it amorphous, or to hold it in its crystallization temperature range for some time, thereby switching it to a crystalline state. PCM also has the ability to achieve a number of distinct intermediary states, thereby having the ability to hold multiple bits in a single cell, but the difficulties in programming cells in this way has prevented these capabilities from being implemented in other technologies (most notably flash memory) with the same capability. Newer PCM technology has been trending in two different directions. One group has been directing a lot of research towards attempting to find viable material alternatives to Ge2Sb2Te5 (GST), with mixed success. Another group has developed the use of a GeTe–Sb2Te3superlattice to achieve non-thermal phase changes by simply changing the co-ordination state of the Germanium atoms with a laser pulse. This new Interfacial Phase-Change Memory (IPCM) has had many successes and continues to be the site of much active research.[1] Leon Chua has argued that all two-terminal non-volatile-memory devices, including PCM, should be considered memristors.[2]Stan Williams of HP Labs has also argued that PCM should be considered a memristor.[3] However, this terminology has been challenged and the potential applicability of memristor theory to any physically realizable device is open to question.[4][5]" References: Glass ceramic approaches for energy storage materials Chalcogenide phase-change memory materials for high-speed, low-power data storage
  8. Not only is a legitimate site, it is requested that encrypted data sample and/or a ransom Note be submitted to the site. It will then give a report on the Ransomware used and if there is a known decryption tool available or not.
  9. If you have a question, please start a new thread and fully state your query. This topic is almost 4 years old.
  10. You aren't the first and Microsoft's own hubris is driving more every day.
  11. You presume correctly. I already saw the previous cited articles and re-registered the DLL ,applied the REG file ( under the affected Profile ) deleted the User IconCache file, as well as executed,... "%WINDIR%\system32\ie4uinit.exe" -ClearIconCache That is my theory as well.
  12. Xiexie ni all... I have tried all suggestions from Post #19 and on with derivatives of Post 22 suggestions to no avail. I will note that all hardware unquestionably work. It is only the Device display in the Control Panel applet "Devices and Printers" in one Win7 Profile that is askew.
  13. Anything that is predicated on a fraud can't be good. If they are willing to have their software promoted by fraud or are directly promoting it through fraud is a good reason for the software to be declared as a PUP. As for the actual software, I have not analyzed it and based upon my own observations, I believe any PUP detection is a prima facie validation.
