    Easy. There's about three or four sites that I go to that cover Windows pretty well. On top of that, there's also the closest thing to a manual for Windows and all things Microsoft: Developer tools,...

    Definitely agree on the not keeping anything stored locally that isn't expendable, or stored somewhere else as well. Everyone by now knows I'm a big fan of OneDrive so it's where my important files...

    The problem with stopping Windows startup services is that some seemingly needless services are dependencies for necessary ones. If anything, it's generally third-party apps that seem to cause issues...
  4. Re: Lexmark MS810 intermittent blue screen/firmware error

    If they're using Windows 10 or newer, they can always print to the built-in PDF printer and then send that. It's an extra step, but it can often get rid of a lot of these issues.

    Best of luck to you.

    Re: SNMPv3 Question

    You may need to install the self-signed cert on any devices that are also being used to collect SNMP data. If the device doesn't trust the cert, it may not be able to collect data.

    Re: Service Vac suggestion.

    If you're looking for a new 3M vacuum, do a search for SCS which now owns the design of the 3M vac. The division was sold off by 3M a few years back, but the filtres and parts are identical.

    You can try checking the BIOS of the device to see if SMART reporting is available, which could allow the device to interact with the drive firmware and report any errors.

    Unless I'm mistaken, the C3300 doesn't support newer versions of TLS, which may be part of the issue.
