It runs from the drive with out being on the hard drive . Only installing if you like it .

p.s. Mint/ubunty are general porpuse , distros like Kali are more for hackers

I don't run the abortion that is win 10 so I would not necessarily know but tell me the age old hack,

Find osk.exe and rename it to osk.bak
Find cmd.exe and make a copy naming it to be osk.exe.

no longer works its not like they have had years to fix this

If this was an automotive forum, would you entertain questions like:
  • "The back left tire on my vehicle is flat. How do I fix it?"
  • "How come the radio isn't playing my favorite station?"
  • "Why does the gas pump turn off before the tank is completely filled?"

The forum isn't "Computers R Us" or "Computers for Dummies". And, we've had google for 20 years, now -- if someone hasn't figured out how to ask a question THAT HAS UNDOUBTEDLY BEEN ASKED BY TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE and get an established answer by that means...

A querent (not to be confused with a queer ANT!) has some basic responsibility to think about the question they're posing before posting it!

OTOH, if you want the forum to devolve into one of the above (CRU, CfD), then please don't be annoyed when you then have to spend considerable time digging through mindless posts trying to find anything of substance!

Had the OP asked an equally "stupid" question about "Why did my REPLACEMENT caps short out?", I would imagine a more tolerant response (e.g., have you checked to make sure you didn't install them BACKWARDS? have you checked their WVDC ratings?)

I don't see anyone "attacking" anyone else.

Uranium expressed a valid observation -- no one is disputing that.

I simply stressed that we have a reasonable expectation to have querents think twice about whether this is the right place to ask particular questions. The OP could just as easily have typed his/her query ("windows 10" "reset password") into google and found "About 6,400,000 results (0.75 seconds)".

But, that would assume the querent could read an answer without then having to ask for clarification ("hand-holding") -- which is what a forum would provide!

I have tried everything from shutting off services and modifying the registry to make the thing stop doing the update and nothing stays changed even if I changed the permissions. Best I can do temporarily is to stop and disable the Windows Update service.
