Windows 10 wallpaper

The standard wallpaper options in ’10’ look a bit lame, yet the new Windows logo is pretty neat. So it was time to get Photoshop out and see if we couldn’t make something a bit more eye-catching. If you like our Windows 10 wallpaper, feel free to take a copy of it. Just click the picture on the right and it’s yours!

Meanwhile, Windows 10 is proving to be stable enough for us to use on some of our newer hardware after a few disappointing experiences. In particular our Dell laptops (XPS15) had a number of issues, resulting in memory errors and the BSOD.

Some PC’s also had SMTP problems with Outlook and ultimately were cured by running System File Checker. If you are suffering email issues you might try that first. To run it simply enter ‘cmd’ or ‘command prompt’ in the search box and run as administrator by right clicking the desktop app and selecting the first option. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click ‘Allow’.

At the command prompt, type ‘sfc /scannow’ (without quotes), and then press ‘Enter’.

The sfc /scannow command will scan all protected system files, and replace any corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder in the Windows operating system folder which is usually at C:\Windows\System32\dllcache.

You should leave the machine switched on and avoid running any other programs until verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown after the process is completed.

Sometimes it may be necessary to run the process in ‘Safe Mode’.
