Wow. Insane. Will users' trust Microsoft to "Curate" their Windows 10 install, given these significant breaches of trust, in the underlying platform?

Wow! MS will always find a way to screw it's Windows users, without you noticing it.

There is an easy Regedit fix in Majorgeeks that turned mine back on along with the Task scheduler fix for it.

I still have a hard time understanding why people still trust Microsoft.
Because you don't have many choices in the OS world. Windows take a 90% chunk of the market.

Linux is too hard to use and Mac OS hardware is too expensive.

Let me see, the last time I used a registry backup was... hmm... pretty much never.

Thumbs up for that ace reporter Gorden Kelly for reporting on something that happened over a year ago.
