I got one of those yesterday - on an answer I provided more than five years ago. My answer even started out with the phrase "No guarantees, but...". It was later established that my answer wouldn't work, but at the very least, it provided the question asker with something that won't work in that situation, which is often equally as valuable as something that does work.
".45 ACP - because shooting twice is just silly" - JSOP, 2010 - You can never have too much ammo - unless you're swimming, or on fire. - JSOP, 2010 - When you pry the gun from my cold dead hands, be careful - the barrel will be very hot. - JSOP, 2013
Would be nice with a comment for both up-votes and down-votes.
But the mystery down-votes are of course more annoying, especially when it happens a minute after you post your answer.
Like someone is lurking in the shadows, waiting for something to do.
Have just (had to) update / upgrade to the above version...
1. All previously set security settings had to be redone (I hope I've got them all)
2. All the Bull*hit apps that were currently deactivated / de-installed had to be de-installed (again)
3. Some apps are no longer de-installable, can only be deactivated
4. Some previously set GPO's (I'm on a domain) no longer work...
I predict that Win7 will be used up to and until it really is EOL. Hopefully MS will realise that the whole Win10 upgrade / update policy is a dead end and that users do not want a windowed google OS malware / spyware...
Who the f*** is General Failure, and why is he reading my harddisk?
I did a clean install on several computers with the 10586 ISO file burnt to a DVD and have not had noteworthy issues. However, none of these machines were on a domain. All were home computers. Of course, doing a clean install means all old settings are gone.
You're traveling through another dimension,
a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind;
a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination.
