    I didn't get my hands on it, Magilla, so I wouldn't know. I do know I've tested many "features" I thought were great but no one else did.
    I had it for couple of builds, it had marginal usability. I mean it worked but not adjustable enough.

    How can it be deprecated if it was never actually a feature of Windows.
    It was for one build I think.

    Is that unappreciated or deprecated, or a feature reducing in value - lol?
    Good morning, Cereberus. Lots of folks use depreciated in place of deprecated. I tend to think that when someone comes across deprecate, it's literally read as depreciate. The "eye" inserts the the "i" because depreciate is the more familiar term. All that aside, depreciate is sort of accurate, since in order to deprecate something, it should first be depreciated in value.

    In my search for the meaning of both, I found that within these TF walls deprecate is the more accurate term:

    Deprecation
    Deprecation is the discouragement of use of some feature, design or practice, typically because it has been superseded or is no longer considered safe, without (at least for the time being) removing it from the system of which it is a part or prohibiting its use.

    Deprecate vs. depreciate
    To depreciate is (1) to lessen in value, or (2) to lower the value of something, especially by falsely undervaluing, disparaging, or belittling it. The word is most common in financial contexts.

    Deprecate traditionally means to express disapproval of, but over the last century it has gained another sense—to disparage or belittle—that makes it roughly synonymous with depreciate in that word’s second sense.

    You can be self-deprecating, but not self depreciating as far as i know.

    Example:
    No one would suggest President Trump was ever self-deprecatory.

    Divorce is definitely self-depreciation - lol.

    Hi folks

    I seem to be stuck with an un-updateable build -- can't get the 107 update -- this is still on 55 and just forever stays in WD defender update.

    Attachment 211840

    Going to trash this build but what to go to --there's too many versions / options out there concurrently -- goodness knows what the various paths mean any more.

    Do I have to roll back to 1803

    Cheers
    jimbo
    Jimbo, I'm also on 1809.55. I got here via the original Windows Update which I kept because I wan't affected by the file deleting issue. There was a CU that took me to 1809.55.

    I can't say how others got to where they are, but it's my understanding that so far, there are two versions of 1809 at this point. Mine and all those others.

    Nothing to add, just wanted to say this: Cleaners and tweakers are snake oil, no need to use any. Reading the forums and tech sites, it is surprisingly often that when a user has various issues, some of these absolutely unnecessary "tools" have been used before the issue occurred.
    I am glad that you guys brought up this topic on the table. I had always had this question about registry cleaners: What one is supposed to do with all the leftovers and junks still lurking in the registry after uninstalling an app or anything else for that matter?. Is it preferable to do the cleanup oneself by going to the registry?

    There is got to be some good registry cleaners out there. Notwithstanding the fact that one can always do a registry backup or always have a system image backup if you back up everyday like I do, even before running the registry cleaner every time.

    I know that it has been said many times that it is not a good idea to run them, but I just want to know what is the solution to get around this. Want it or not, at some point if one does not do some housekeeping in the registry, it can get bloated and impact the performance of your machine.

    All suggestions are welcome!
