Windows 10 Nvidia Drivers Issue with Skylake

Yesterday I had a morning surprise by my PC, when I turned it on all I got was white pixelated flickering caused by GPU drivers update (automated in windows 10) Safe mode and all of the advanced repair stuff wasn’t working so out of options I just used “Reset my PC”. In order to avoid the issue in the future autoupdate feature was disabled through: Advanced System Settings –> Hardware Tab –> Device Installation Settings –> Select No Please note that this is all or nothing solution, there is no granular control what hardware to be updated, so after No you should update all drivers manually.

SSL routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:wrong version number or similar

After experiencing a pfsense log overflow with SSL routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:wrong version number, SSL: 1 error:140760FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:unknown protocol and similar errors for a while I finally figured a way to reduce them to the more reasonable level by simply checking Disable webConfigurator redirect rule in the advanced settings. There are still some errors in the log though, however, way less than before. Remarks – Captive Portal is disabled, webConfigurator is accessible from Internet, pfsense version is 2.2.5-RELEASE (amd64) – there is a setting to completely disable lighthttpd logging (as it was before version 2) under settings of the system log

This Pc opening very slow Windows 8.1

Yesterday This Pc started to open very slow on my Windows 8.1 making me angry of course 🙂 Today I had time to dig in and at my suspicion that a network share or something  similar is causing the issue was close enough. I disabled Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service and Voila – Everything opens so nice and smooth again. So far i am satisfied and with the result, My pc is feeling (visibly) faster and this service is not missing me at all. By default it starts automatically, so it’s up to you to disable it or let it start with the next restart.
