Just did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate after procrastinating for years on my old Pentium 4 computer with XP.Of course there were alot of updates and I allowed all the critical ones to install, at least I thought they did.I then checked update to download but ask to install any new ones.

These two solutions are going to work best for people with “Home” or “Home Premium” versions of Windows.
I also have a habit of opening multiple notepad windows containing temporary notes for an article or the like that are never meant to be saved that get lost in these cases.
Or times where I’ve left my computer on overnight transferring large files, such as some of my website databases, only to see the next morning that Windows has helpfully restarted mid-transfer, so now I have to do it over again.

The period prior to the 1930s adoption of the Motion Picture Production Code (which governed profanity, nudity, violence, and the treatment of other subjects in cinema) was known as Pre-Code Hollywood; throughout the 1920s and early 1930s, movies featured content that wouldn’t been seen again in American cinema for decades.
