that this is happening to computers that were set to automatically install Microsoft. We were making upgrades to ACT version 20 when this first manifest on two computers. Please retweet and add any info that clarifies the problem.
Warn other users and help prevent their crashes
More will follow on Windows 10 OS crashes as source of problem is clarified. This is not a prank. We don't know if Microsoft is the source. All problems started in the last week. It has affected our databases. We can't say definitively it's Microsoft, but it sure seems curious
Be prepared to restore computers to their original Win 10 versions and software levels and then reinstall all new programs since then.
None of our anti-malware detectors that find a problem or rootkit.
Microsoft is silent, but the number of updates speaks volumes.
Here R suggestions.
1. Turn off all Microsoft Windows 10 Updating.
2. Use recovery options to roll back configurations to something in 2017.
3. Do backups of all machines and your data,
4. Take backups offline!
WARNING! - READ THIS - We believe the Microsoft 10 OS has been successfully attacked in Jan 2018.
Check your update log. We had 83 Microsoft updates in the last 5 days.
Two machines that received these became unbootable and had to be restored to initial Win 10 to fix.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
