• Why does windows 10 update on startup?

    Before I went to bed, I made sure to update/shutdown my pc. I figured this would update everything needed. Unfortunantly upon starting up my pc, I was stuck with more updates. Why weren't these updates done during shut down?

    Best answer: The FBI and other cybercrime organizations routinely monitor YA so I am frankly amazed that you would ask such a question. You may as well put up a billboard with directions to your house because once your question is seen they will submit paperwork to YA for the IP address associated with your question.

    Microsoft has been aggressively pursuing pirates since 2016. They have always pursued piracy, but they notched things up 100fold in 2016 and have been tracing them via IP addresses and processing them in court. They don't just go after ones or twos,, but groups (because it's too expensive for them to sue just one person). So they wait until they round up 1,000s before filing charges. Once they find you with their cyberforensic methods, then you're tagged until they find 100s more who have stolen the very same that they are targeting. For instance if they are rounding up Office 2010 and Office 2013 thieves, they tag them (forensically) until they have enough, and then submit the lawsuit in court. So can you be caught and charged or jailed? Yes. And because you have asked the question, you have billboarded yourself that makes it easier to find you.

    Most software thieves first suffer issues with their computers as a result of stolen software because pirated software generally (about 90% of the time) has all kinds of virus, worms, Trojans, malware, etc etc)embedded making their computer extremely high risk. Right now you may be feeding an identity thief all of your personal information and it being sold overseas or somewhere in this country without you even knowing it. It may take years (it usually does) but eventually someone would use your info to start purchases in your name using your personal date. Read up on identity theft if you don't understand to what I am referring. Point being, the first stage thieves go thru is having their systems compromised. By the time Microsoft gets you in court, you may already be stripped of your dignity from identity theft. If you're a teenager, you may be just beginning a marriage or just finishing college when it all catches up with you.

    So I'm just giving you the things that can happen because you asked "could I get charged and/or jail time". Now you know - it's yes, but it could take several years before it happens. That's after the devastation from identity theft hits, of course.

    I got on today to do some of my animation work. I tried booting up a game called fortnite as a time to take a bit of a break. While I did that it had said error and not loaded so I decided that maybe it has something to do with how I need to update my windows 10 to the latest version. I had pressed update and restart on my computer and when that had happened all it did was restart and show me a no wifi signal bottom right even if I am using an ethernet cable and the cable was fine. After that, it did not pop up the login screen. I tried opening my bios and opening it in safe mode but all it did was open it to the login again. I waited half an hour and it finally showed me the login and all my files were there but I had no internet, my firewall & network protection was disabled and my audio had problems. Also, all my video files seemed to not open. How can I fix this? I need serious help!

  • Is there a way application that can change someone's voice ?

    Best answer: You're referring to "voice changers". The inexpensive ones are basically like for fun pranks but your voice will sound robotoid (fake in other words).

    Best answer: You're referring to "voice changers". The inexpensive ones are basically like for fun pranks but your voice will sound robotoid (fake in other words). You would have to spend 1000s of dollars for a professional voice changer for it to successfully change your voice from one gender to another to make it sound legit. But make sure you actually test it before you buy it to make sure it really does work because most of these things don't.
