New Year - New (almost) Q&A

(Yea, I recycle too.)

Prepared topics:
  • The Ccleaner Saga
  • Windows 10 Feature Update(s)
    • What's a "Feature Update?"
    • What's Microsoft "Support?"
    • What's "For the Life of the Machine" really mean?
    • What's in v1809 and do you care?
  • My battle with FiOS contracts
Links of note:
  • Ccleaner: <link> I still like it, but off my recommended list due to aggressive advertising.
    • Link to the less-aggressive Ccleaner version 5.40 <link>
  • MalwareBytes: <link> Free version is recommended for a second opinion virus scanner.
  • Microsoft's Update Assistant Tool: Creates a DVD or Flash drive to install or fix Windows.  <link>  Installs the newest version of Windows 10.
  • PC Mag's Best Features in Windows 10 v1809 <link>
    • Turn on Clipboard history <link>, [Win]-V to access.
  • The original Robin Thicke & TI Pharrell "Blurred Lines" <link>  (Catchy tune, confusing lyrics)
