    Microsoft is turning Windows 11's Start Menu into an advertisement delivery system

    Before I started using GameStream I had a dedicated gaming PC/HTPC from spare/old parts at my main TV - If I were gonna do something like that again I'd probably give Steam OS a try instead of Windows

    Portal with RTX

    Yeah path tracing is still tough but a 4090 can do it at 60fps almost 1440p and 30fps 4k that's impressive how far we've come in 4 years since RTX 2000

    I used to use it back in the nLite/vLite days, I got tired of ripping something out that would then break when updating, and the endless trial and error with reformatting, just not my cup of tea anymore, I'd rather leave intact and just disable if possible still have to try the above suggestion...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I only really got tonight to try and play more of Jedi Fallen Order. I just unlocked the first (?) alt worlds to go to. I like it, but controls (with controller) are pretty clunky. Responsive, but feel like I'm driving a Buick a bit.

    HTPC - no more?

    I sold my 2x 2015 16GB SHIELDs (had since 2015) last year to someone on the forum here I think, they were still working 100% fine. Biggest gripe was the ethernet port tolerance was too slim, was like pulling Excalibur from the stone trying to get the ethernet ports out no matter the cable. Now...

    Microsoft is turning Windows 11's Start Menu into an advertisement delivery system

    Nope, I disabled Core Isolation and all that too, I've done and tried many things trying to keep it disabled always like it once was, not related to any of that even with that stuff disabled Win 11 Antivirus will always reenable itself on 22H2, and wouldn't on builds prior, it's literally as...

    Microsoft is turning Windows 11's Start Menu into an advertisement delivery system

    In every build of Win 11 before 22H2 and Win 10 prior if you enable the 'turn off Defender Antivirus' setting in Group Policy, Defender Antivirus would stay disabled forever unless you manually reenabled it - no matter what else you clicked on your computer afterwards and no matter how many...

    Learn the meaning of the phrase 'exactly the same behavior' before you rattle off like that People are welcome to try this on 22H2 and another previous build/version themselves, and see who the real bullshitter here is

    Microsoft is turning Windows 11's Start Menu into an advertisement delivery system

    Then help explain it to me - because he says it functions exactly the same as before How is this and this exactly the same functionality? Please, by all means make that make sense if you can. And I don't need antivirus, and it gets in my way running automated scans bogging things up when...

    Microsoft is turning Windows 11's Start Menu into an advertisement delivery system

    No, before 22H2 if you enabled the 'turn off defender antivirus' in group policy, Windows Defender Antivirus remained permanently off forever without doing anything else at all Now with 22H2 if you do the above it reenables itself automatically after a set amount of time - IT NEVER DID THAT...

    Microsoft is turning Windows 11's Start Menu into an advertisement delivery system

    A setting worked one way before, by enabling that one setting and one setting alone, now it no longer functions as it had, it has been neutered Pointing to a pile of additional hoops you now have to jump through, over there, does not erase the above. It re-emphasizes it.

    I'm complaining that turning Defender Antiivirus off via group policy worked before as intended, now doesn't Hence neutering group policy as I said
