Recently, Microsoft has been found in contempt of court for a case of decline of handing over foreign data to the Government of the United States. Microsoft has refused to submit the reports even when directed by a US judge to submit the needed information, says the Microsoft support site.
Microsoft is facing such charges because the order put forward by the court is to hand over foreign data to the Government. Microsoft says that it is not possible to get the required information with a US warrant from Microsoft data center in Dublin. Now what the prosecutors say is that, since Microsoft is the one leading the data center in Dublin, they must be able to retrieve data without any issues. They also added that the law and order in Dublin should not hold them back.
At a certain point, it is necessary for one of them to make a sacrifice. The later agreed with the federal judges and Government to compensate for the failure to contempt with the court. However, in this stage, Microsoft is out of danger and looks like there is no major threat for the same until now. The Obama lead administration however made it clear that even if Microsoft does not suffer now, there are chances for the tech giant to pay a penalty in future.
This contempt cannot be considered a bad thing necessarily. About one to two weeks back, the permission for Microsoft to appeal for the case was overturned for a stay awarded to the tech giant. Sources who are familiar with the proceedings feel that Microsoft accepting the penalty looks like they are planning to appeal in higher courts to get a final say in favor of them. The company said that they would not be facing any prosecutions at this stage on Microsoft’s own Digital Constitution pages in a brief comment. The Microsoft support site has been set up to provide detailed information about the case and its proceedings.
On Microsoft’s dedicated site, a copy of the entire case and its ruling was written down. Even though Microsoft is trying to handle this very calmly, most of the foreign users and the other technological giants are worried about the proceedings of the case. Some of the other tech giants from US technology and telecommunication are supporting Microsoft with the same case considering the future of the case. Microsoft added that they would not budge unless they have no other option.Read more »
Restore Point is one of the ultimate lines of defense when you have messed up your computer and have reached the point where you have almost admitted defeat. Once done, the Windows Restore feature undoes all the changes you or any other application software has made to the system. However, this does not mean that any of your personal data, which includes documents, photos or emails will be affected. Microsoft Windows OS only undoes the system settings and registry entry changes and preserves all other changes.
This feature is exceptionally handy if you recently installed a software or a driver that has caused some unexpected changes, causing your Microsoft Windows powered computer to behave erratically. In such scenarios, you will be able to undo the damage at the touch of a button.
To create a System Restore point, you can either contact us from our Microsoft support page or make the following changes yourself:
Now that you have created a Restore point, you are well equipped in the event of any crisis. When required, you will have to bring up the System Restore point again in order to bring back your computer to the selected date. In fact, you can schedule your computer to create automatic system restore points so that you do not have to worry about saving restore points at all. Using this feature, you can select the time duration after which your computer will automatically save system restore points. If you are facing any issues with creating the restore point, you can contact us from our Microsoft Support page.Read more »
Windows Vista operating system was released in 2007 and it came as a successor to Windows XP. Even though there was much hype by Microsoft about the operating system before its release, it proved to be a failure. This Microsoft operating system did not meet the expectations of the users, as it did not even allow many of the programs to run in it due to its stringent security measures.
However, still a large number of people use this operating system and have not upgraded to any of the newer ones from Microsoft. Now, these users might be experiencing troubles with the operating system. The operating system might take several minutes to load or might freeze occasionally. So, how can you address these issues? According to Microsoft support for Vista, the first thing to do before initiating any troubleshooting step is to understand the root cause of the problem.
In order to understand the cause of an error in the operating system, one could go to the Event log of the operating system. The event log is a diagnostic tool, which records all the events in the operating system. By going through the event log, you can find out what is the exact cause of the trouble. Let us find out how to view and work with the Event log.
If you are lucky, you will find the error you encountered and the explanation for it in detail. However, make sure that you go through other entries too. For further assistance on this issue, you may go through the Microsoft support for Vista pages or contact our technical support team.Read more »
Although Microsoft officially recommends you to enable Automatic Updates at all times, this might not be a good idea always. Every now and then, Microsoft botches up its update such that existing stable PC systems lose stability or start acting up in different ways. Hence, it is better to install the updates only after confirming that there are no issues with them. Contact our Microsoft Support for Vista desk to know more about specific Windows updates.
Whatever be the reason, you can customize how Windows Update works on your computer by tweaking the following settings.
If you have any issues changing these settings, contact our Microsoft support for Vista center.
