- IF YOU LIKE OR NEED TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS! PLEASE USE THE WINDOWSGUIDES-METHOD
TO CREATE STRONGER PASSWORDS THAT ARE EASY TO REMEMBER AN EASY TO TYPE!
Have you been using weak passwords, has your online-accounts ever got “hacked”?
Then its most likely that you have been using weak passwords (like these) If you have used any of these or usually use your partners, pets or children's names, your favourite car brand, series of numbers, the word password where letters are changed to numbers etc.
THEN YOU REALLY NEED TO START USING THE WINDOWSGUIDES-METHOD WHEN CREATING AND USING PASSWORDS!
SO! How do you do that then?
It is really easy, so easy you should begin teaching your children to use the methods since small age..
ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TO MAKE UP A SENTENCE OF AT LEAST 8 WORDS,
AND TYPE THE 1:ST LETTER OF EACH WORD AS THE PASSWORD..
Here you will notice the simplicity and the effectiveness of this method…
If you take the sentence: My cat Mjau has black and white fur.. You will get (type) the password: McMhbawf or McMhb&wf
- That is a password that is much safer than the names and brands etcetera that, way to many people, keep using…
Instead of using your cats name, you may use whatever you like and the more words (letters in the password) you use the better, but keep the minimum at 8 Words/letters.. Anything less is way to unsecure!
And do not forget where you got this from.. This is ONE benefit that is included in THE ULTIMATE WINDOWS 10 INSTALLATION-GUIDE.

MORE PRACTICAL INFORMATION REGARDING WINDOWS, WINDOWS SETTINGS, PCs AND SOFTWARE
Lets first start with a number of false myths (All myths are per definition false!) Some originates from the early PC-stone age (like the size of the swap-file) while others are totally made up stuff from persons without any Windows education, that has drawn entirely wrong conclusions (like the myth about deactivating your swap file) all the way to pure idiot-advices (like the “need” to turning of the UAC)
PLEASE NOTE! YOU ALWAYS GET THE RIGHT SETTINGS VIA THE ULTIMATE WINDOWS 10 INSTALLATION and its unique help-files
- HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD TO TURN OFF THE UAC-FEATURE?
If anyone told you that you should disable UAC (pull it down at the bottom) then that was said by someone who really wants to damage your computer, or someone who likes to be able to install viruses, spy ware or other harmful things in your computer.
WHY? Well! The UAC-function is created to prevent unauthorised users to make changes to your windows-system!.
If you pull your UAC-slider to the bottom this will disable several of the main security features built into WINDOWS! This puts your computer at a severe risk! It´s like leaving your house for vacation, without locking any doors or Windows. Any one who passes by may roam around in your house at their own will.. Contrary to belief, UAC is the most necessary security related feature in modern Windows versions, as it gives you, a standard user, the ability to run stuff, like a software setup, as an administrator although your account itself does not have any administrative permissions! The USC makes sure that you no longer need to log in and out with different accounts to perform administrative tasks. That simplifies a lot.
When ever you need administrator privileges then the UAC automatically pops up and lets you choose whether or not the process should be run with administrator privileges, without you needing to be logged in as administrator!
So! If anyone gives you (or have given you) this erroneous advice, I really hope that you NEVER EVER listen to that persons advise again!
- NOTE! THE ULTIMATE WINDOWS 10 INSTALLATION-GUIDE has an optimally trimmed UAC, which protects your computer better!
- HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD THAT THE PAGING-FILE SHOULD BE AT LEST 1,5 TIME THE RAM?
Then you were told the recommendations that Microsoft gave to companies during the Windows NT era (=end of the 1990+s)
The ultimate Windows 10 installation´s help-files ensure that your Windows paging file is correctly optimised!
-Back then servers often crashed, so Microsoft demanded that a crashing server should be able to write all the contents of RAM to a log-file, by 1:st reading this data in to the paging file (thus the recommendation), then transfer it to a log-file, All this so you would be able to send the log-file to Microsoft so they would analyse the reason to the crash.
This is the ONLY reason as to whyMicrosoft used to require tthat the paging file would be large enough to handle all the contents of RAM + have some extra space for the system to function.
Today, Windows (server or PC) is so reliable that this requirement no longer remains, and not in private computers! Honestly, How many private persons would pay thousands of dollars to have Microsoft investigate why their computer crashed?..
(None! You either fix the error or reinstall the computer). So for this reason alone, no privately owned PC would need a paging file that follows the 1,5xRAM requirement! THE ULTIMATE WINDOWS 10 INSTALLATION-GUIDE automatically sets your paging file right!
Today, The optimal is to have a fixed paging file with a adequate size! (A fixed paging file is one that has the same initial size as maximum size) And no! Simply because the paging file has a certain size, Windows does not automatically fill it up, a fixed paging file ensures that when ever the computer needs to swap (or page) any data to the paging file, then the paging file is already large enough to store all the data! -NOTE! THE ULTIMATE WINDOWS 10 INSTALLATION-GUIDEs help files does AUTOMATICALLY optimise your paging file! No need to change that!
- ABOUT THE MYTH: “YOU HAVE SO MUCH RAM, THAT YOU CAN TURN OFF THE PAGING FILE!”
This is a myth (= falsehood) that is widely spread by uneducated amateurs. Windows Memory manager will only page the memory of inactive processes to the paging-file! Why? To free up RAM so any active processes may use more RAM when needed!.
As you see, turning off the paging file has the direct opposite effect, it's like shooting your self in the foot! = It ruins your performance!
If you turn the paging file off, then Windows will keep more INACTIVE stuff remaining in memory, thus clogging it, so no new processes would not be able to use enough RAM (The RAM would already be FILLED TO THE BRIM). So the idea of turning the paging-file “OFF” is totally stupid! -NOTE! THE ULTIMATE WINDOWS 10 INSTALLATION-GUIDEs help files does optimise your paging file! No need to touch it!
- HAVE SOMEONE FOOLED YOU INTO USING “BOOSTERS” TO UPDATE YOUR DRIVERS?
Firs of all: Almost all PCs are based on either INTEL or AMD. Windows has basic support for these!
If you have any EXTRA hardware in the form of track pads or an additional graphics card, Then you will have to download these drivers from the manufacturer's website. (That is the ONLY way of getting the LATEST and CORRECT-drivers)
If you have a Dell do you go to Dell support pages, you have a HP you go into HP support pages, you have an ASUS you go into the ASUS support pages.. Etc. NOWHERE ELSE! Software like: Driver-Booster and similar often install an "almost" right driver that looks "right" at first but soon starts to generate various errors, problems and reduces performance. (I know! I have been there, tried that!) So PLEASE do NOT listen to those who try to fool you into using Driver-booster, C-cleaner and such!
-NOTE! THE ULTIMATE WINDOWS 10 INSTALLATION-GUIDE makes sure that you will never need stuff like “boosters”, “tweakers” or “optimizers”!
