windows 10 is garbage so every time i boot up the computer i have to run command prompt and enter

net.exe stop “Windows Search”

so that the shitty goddamned search/cortana feature that i never fucking use stops running in the background taking up all my fucking disk space

before

after

what the fuck is that seriously what the fuck is making my computer be a fucking piece of shit

@baristaboy try this out dude

@lambylin

y’all didn’t even add a tutorial of how to do this so imma put one right here

1. type in cmd.exe into your windows search and right click on Command Promt search result and select “Run as Administator”.
2. Type/Copypase in 

net.exe stop “Windows Search” and make sure Windows Search is in quotations. It should then respond saying “The Windows Search service is stopping” and then tell you it’s stopped.

This is only a temp fix though, if you want it switched off permanently then do THIS:

1.  Press the Windows key + R at the same time and type in services.msc.

2.  Scroll until you find Windows Search and double click it to enter its Properties window.

3.  Change the Startup type to Disabled. Apply this change and you can exit out.

VOILA, NO MORE TAKEN UP DISK SPACE

This was good enough to bring me out of “retirement”, and I tested it out. It’s completely a point, I realized most of my computer disk space was getting unusually crammed a while ago but I never made the connection with Cortana. And it’s some crap, but take it down and it’s much simpler

A lot of people have posted this and the testimony, ultimately, is mixed results. A couple of friends did this and quote: “It’s not amazing soft, but soft enough to wear without a bra on.” Which, I will grant, is still progress. For anything bigger than a t shirt, I’m pretty sure it will still work, but I’m not sure what the other effects are (one person said the sheets shrunk, the other indicated otherwise).

Note: Remember to get something to hold down the shirt as it soaks.

Mint.com This is an online financial managemen…

Mint.com

This is an online financial management tool. You can access it computers, tablets, phones, almost everything. It’s really useful for budgeting, and coming to grip with your finances, and it is completely free.

PROS:

  • It’s free, and requires no software to install on your computer.
  • When you connect it to your financial institutions, it will automatically download each transaction you make every night and log it into your ledger.
  • It’s very visually pleasing and streamlined to help you budget.
  • It will send you email alerts of bills due, weekly summaries of your finances.
  • It even recently added a free credit score tracking feature.

CONS:

  • Lots of advertisements. The whole reason it is free is because you get targeted ads based on your financial information.
  • A lot of people have noted the automatic downloads have glitches or problems syncing up is another big problem.
  • You also can’t reconcile it with your bank statements, because they assume the data that is downloaded is always correct. Nor can you import old history of budgeting from anywhere else.
  • The transactions downloaded are automatically categorized, requiring a manual override quite often.
  • Not a lot of customer support or personal backups of your budget.

YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary):

  • Security: While the institution that owns Mint.com has a good history of protecting financial information and customer data, the fact remains that you are now putting all your login information for your banks, loans, credit cards, etc. in one place. It’s a huge potential security risk, although it hasn’t happened yet. If you trust Intuit, it’s very useful.
  • The other thing that seems to give me mixed feelings is the automation of your budgeting information. 6 months ago, I had to take control of my personal finances, and I used YNAB to take control of my finances. The main factor that helped me was manually entering in my transactions from bank statements of personal reciepts. I would have to confront the money I spent every few days to enter it, rather than ignore the bank statements. While some of the features of Mint.com would have helped a lot, that manual entry was really the key part that helped me, and it’s not something here. 

In the end, it’s a free option, and a tool that can potentially help out someone in need of a streamlined way of looking at their finances.
