Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14986 for PC Insider
You're welcome Kari
Happened to me, too
There is a registry hack I found somewhere which adds the classic control panel to the right click context menu. I'll try to locate the reg file when I get a chance but these kinds of things can pretty easily be found through a specific web search (I don't say Google search because I use DuckDuckGo

I know this is a thread about Build 14986, but I think everyone needs to be made aware.
I just got a full screen popup saying there's an urgent patch for Firefox and I should install it ASAP! Instead, I closed the page ASAP, then opened FF and plugged in mozilla.org/firefox. Of course, I saw, "Congratulations, you're using the latest version of Firefox."
This is the second time I've gotten this, and I didn't click the last time either! If what I'm thinking is correct, those who click will have their system hosed . . .
Yes. That's it. A very nice hack I must say adding extra features - icons,categories and God mode!
Clever and creative! Even Kari liked it! Gave everyone a laugh!

I checked out that stuff (a bit) Wynona, and it is not malware on your PC (if you didn't click on it). It is kind of vulnerability in FF and also Chrome. Mostly came out of pictures or commercial links on legitimate sites.
Well, I know there's nothing on my machine, Andre; however, if I'd clickety-clicked, I'd've had something Gramma's lye soap couldn't get rid of!
Which was my reason for posting here; to warn folks it's going around and they shouldn't clickety click. At least 99.44% know better, but we do have a few newbies looking for help. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
