To prevent this from occurring, Windows 10 will use a new algorithm that detects high disk usage and activity, and if detected, will slow down the Windows Indexer. “Based on this, we’re introducing an algorithm that detects high disk usage and activity, so it can better identify peak usage times and manage the indexer accordingly. We’re also making changes for developers to prevent searches of certain repositories and project folders to improve disk usage.” Download throttling options for Windows Update Windows Update allows users to throttle bandwidth usage of Windows Update, but setting download throttling as a percent of available bandwidth isn’t enough and some users are unable to reduce the impact on their internet connection.

  5. Some time between now and the next month, we should be getting the next major update. Windows 10 2004, also known as 20H1. It's been rumored that it will be the May 2004 update. A few people are saying it needs to be delayed because of COVID-19, though I don't believe that will or should happen.
  6. An update was applied to 5.4. Clear your cache if you have any issues.
  7. The COVID-19 pandemic is a very unfortunate thing to be happening to all of us worldwide. Many have now been told to work from home, or simply quarantined. This may be for two weeks or even longer, the duration is unclear at this time. Working from home means using your tech to accomplish all kinds of tasks remotely, even meetings and conferences. If something was to go wrong and all non-essential stores are closed because of COVID-19, you may not be able to get your computer or devices fixed. This is a reminder that - as always - Lunarsoft offers completely free tech support, and most of the work can be done remotely too! Software level items are much easier to diagnose, though a hardware level issue isn't quite as simple though may still be possible. Do not hesitate to ask for help or assistance. These forums are monitored often daily. Should anyone need any help, ask! The Lunarsoft Wiki has numerous helpful articles and is always ready to be expanded to help further. Thank you all for reading this, and please stay safe! Tarun
  8. While Windows 7 support has ended, and it's rather expensive if you want to pay to keep Windows up to date, there is a better option that's still free. You can still upgrade to Windows 10, completely free. You simply need the Media Creation Tool or Windows 10 Upgrade Helper. Both utilities can be found on this page. Your best course of action is to make a proper backup, then wipe your drive and install Windows 10 using your Windows 7 key.
  9. Microsoft will continue to issue updates for Windows Defender on Windows 7. That's really good news for those few that really don't want to take the free update to Windows 10, or are unable to due to hardware limitations. Nice thing is that Windows Defender is one of the top rated anti-virus products out there.
  10. @Vulcan219 This should now be resolved with the release of Anti-Malware Toolkit 2!
  11. @phk1 Download the new update - version 2 and these problems should be gone!
