Use clean boot to troubleshoot performance issues in Windows 10

>> Hi. My name is Bryan with Microsoft customer support. Today, I’m going to show you how to identify software-related problems for your Windows PC. We’re going to explain what a clean boot does, how to narrow down the problem, and how put it all back together again. Let’s get started. So what is a clean boot? Clean boot is a troubleshooting step that loads the operating system without all the extra applications and services that are installed in your device. If your problems such as slow performance or crash goes away after performing a clean boot, then you know you have a software problem with one of the applications or services installed. We’re going to use BadApp to represent any problem that you might be having on your device whether it be a crash or a particular error message. To do a clean boot, we’re going to use the “System Configuration Manager” or the tool commonly referred to as “msconfig.” First, we’re going to open up the “Services” tab and stop all unnecessary services.

To do this, we’re going to “Hide all the Microsoft Services” and then uncheck any of the remaining services. Next, we’re going to disable all the startup apps. Startup applications are loaded every time you start the computer. To disable these, we’ll be using Task Manager. When you’re done disabling all the services and startup apps, you’ll need to “Reboot” for the changes to take. Once your computer has restarted, you’re now in a clean boot state. When you’re in this state, you’ll want to check to see if the problem you have is still there. So that means, your application was running slow, shutting down, or crashing. Watch it again and see if there’s a difference. If everything is working as it was before, then you just confirmed that one of the things that you disable in the clean boot is causing the problem.

The next step is to figure out what is causing the problem. We’re going to start with re-enabling the apps. If you have a lot of apps in your startup, then you can enable half of them at a time to see if the problem is in that batch of apps. And depending on how many apps you have, you may have to do this several times.

Let’s reboot to see if any of the apps we’ve re-enabled is causing the problem. After enabling the first batch of apps, everything still looks good. Let’s narrow this down further by enabling the next half batch of apps. In this case, it looks like one of the apps we re-enabled is causing the problem. Let’s single out and disable the perm called BadApp and see what happens. After restarting, the problem has disappeared. Now that we’ve narrowed it down to a specific app, you can check the vendor website to see if there’s an updated version of the app to install or you can uninstall the app either with “Apps and Features” in Settings, or in the Control Panel “Programs and Features.” But for this demonstration, it’s just a bad app that we don’t use and we’re just going to delete it from the startup location we had placed it in. At this point, we found the bad app that’s caused the problem. We’re going to put everything back to normal by re-enabling all the rest of the startup apps and services.

If you don’t undo these steps, then you might break something else by not turning the apps and services back on. Now, what if you didn’t find the problem with apps in the startup area? Then, you would have continue the elimination process by turning everything on in the startup folder and then use the same elimination process to narrow down the problem in the services section. We hope this walk through of the clean boot troubleshooting will help you identify any potential software-related problems in case you have a problem with your device.

Scientists Made A Stunning New Discovery About the Immune System

Think scientists have anatomy and physiology all figured out? Think again! Hi everyone! Crystal here for DNews talking about how the more scientists learn about the body, the less we really seem to know … what am I talking about? A recent discovery by scientists at the University of Virginia revealed a connection between the central nervous system (CNS) and the immune system that had gone unnoticed for centuries.

This discovery challenges current theories about basic brain-body interactions and could throw our current ideas on the development of some neurological diseases completely out the window! After learning about this discovery, one scientist was quoted as saying “they’ll have to rewrite the textbooks.” I find results like these so exciting because they demonstrate that the pursuit of new knowledge is a dynamic process. In the journal Nature, the scientists from UVA’s School of Medicine reported the existence of previously unknown vasculature carrying immune cells between the meninges -the protective tissue around the brain- and the cervical lymph nodes that are the hubs of our immune system. This discovery was made the same way a lot of big scientific discoveries are made: by accident. A scientist developing a new way to prepare slides of intact mouse meningeal tissue noticed an unexpected pattern of immune cells in the tissue under his microscope, and, because he’s a scientist, he just had to know why.

In science, unexpected results can mean big discoveries and this was no exception. In addition to draining interstitial fluids, classic lymphatic vessels carry the white blood cells of the immune system throughout the body. Prior to the discovery of these new vessels, no direct link between the brain and spinal cord and the Immune system had been found and it was thought that the brain was an area of mild “immune privilege” meaning able to tolerate insult or disease exposure without eliciting a rush of inflammation to the affected region.

This assumption left scientists in the dark about the mechanisms behind many neurological diseases that involve altered immunity. But now that this connection has been discovered, there is already speculation about whether impaired drainage or malfunction of these newly discovered lymphatic vasculature could contribute to the buildup of plaques in Alzheimer’s disease, and scientists have a new place to look when investigating the immune attacks experienced by patients with Multiple Sclerosis. The discovery of direct interaction between the CNS and the immune system changes how we think about the brain’s response to injury and the development of disease. Obviously, more research is needed and these groundbreaking results are nonetheless preliminary. But this exciting discovery will lead to further investigation into the vasculature structure surrounding the human brain and hopefully a more detailed understanding of human health and physiology. On the topic of new discoveries, some scientists are finding that young blood might have rejuvenating properties – at least in mice – but they’re still trying to figure out why.

12 Ways Your Career Can Benefit From Solitude in This COVID Crisis

For most, it is important to spend time around and engaged with other people. In social groups and at work, by surrounding ourselves with colleagues, family members and associates who challenge us to think and move outside our comfort zone, we find we can improve our habits and learn new things. Of course, much of life’s biggest joys and most lasting memories stem from our relationships, and in times like these, those can become absent, strained or even strange.

And some say too much “people time” might also be a bad thing. Our digital devices often make us feel like we need to be connected 24/7. All of the noise, activity, constant contact and hustle can wear us out and, ironically, can leave some feeling lonelier than ever. If our electronics are all we have right now to get our work done and stay in touch, truly disconnecting during this isolation may become even more important.

While we may not all be enjoying the global forced cloistering we find ourselves in today, let us

10+ Ideas to Overcome the Career Curveball COVID Has Thrown and Make the Most of Self Quarantine

The greatest key to make massive performance gains in disruptive times like these is to look for trouble then confront it, to overcome obstacles, to navigate new mental terrain, accommodating and adapting to change, and then eliminating or at least limiting any behavior that stands between you and goal achievement.

Clean or replace your filter

The filter in your furnace serves a crucial job in the process of delivering warm air throughout the rooms in your home. A furnace filter is usually installed where the return duct enters your furnace. It removes particulates from the air before it moves into the furnace equipment and is heated. A furnace filter will remove all kinds of particulates, including dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, spores, and more.

Inexpensive filters provide basic protection. They are designed to catch a high percentage of the particles that flow through your home. More expensive air filters offer improved air quality, which can help individuals who may suffer from allergies or asthma.

The Importance of Being Awesome and What It Really Means

Wake up and smell the reality around you. Remove the desire to be deceived. The news, whether you call it fake and despite which outlet you prefer, is slanted. It has some bit of truth, and a ton of opinion couched as fact, all designed to elicit emotion by using extremes.

Mark Twain said, “You can kill the truth easily, but a well told lie will live forever.” This, in reality, all points to perspective and perception; and we have all heard, “Perception is reality.”

Really, we all do perceive the world through our own eyes. In reality, we all see things a little differently. No matter your perception, reality could care less. Reality does not change. It does not adapt to our viewpoints. It is what it is. It is non-negotiable. That’s a fact.

Reality is the truth. The acceptance of reality, in other words, is dealing with the truth, and that is a moral obligation, not an option. Unfortunately, the truth often becomes a piñata for those who refuse to accept it

Should You Hire for Sales Skill or Technical Acumen?

The question plaguing many hiring managers — not just in the Clinical Research and the Genomics and Genetics Diagnostics spaces, but indeed in all businesses — is: “Should we hire a candidate with technical expertise and train them in becoming a great sales person; or, should we hire a candidate with a strong sales background and train them in technical and product knowledge?

Making a hiring decision to address all the needs of your business takes forethought, patience and insight. You may find yourself asking whether you should focus more on sales or technical experience throughout the process, but the truth is, both are integral to success.

In fact, research shows that sales experience is more important long term, while technical expertise is more important short term. Let’s go into more detail.

Some say truly good sales people are harder to find than those with technical expertise, being that the ability to sell comes more naturally to those with certain innate traits t
