Feature Requests / Re: Suspension of apps
« Last post by chris635 on Yesterday at 12:33:52 PM » I figured it out. Jriver media causes this. I used to use itunes for my music, but switched to jriver media (much better than itunes!!!). It has something to do with shell integration. Now you can turn this feature off in jriver, but the problem still persists. The mere fact that it is even installed (doesn't need to be running) still produces the problem, it just takes longer when not running. It screws with everything in the app container, specifically shellexperiencehost.exe. So I set a watch dog to terminate this. Now this process controls your start menu operation and right clicks on pinned programs in the taskbar (so no jump lists or start menu). Well that sucks. I went to jriver media forums, and a lot folks have the same problem. According to the devs there it is a windows 10 wait windows 10 is broke and not your software? So I installed as a different media program on my laptop..I installed foobar..guess what..the same thing happened then too! Itunes, it works fine.So it does look like a windows 10 problem. In the mean time I have installed start10 to get around this.
To answer my own question on SSD optimization and general defrag options, I found this article.
I am sure there are others but this answers many questions, as regard to options and improvements.

Windows 10 Redstore might be released on June, so you may also get this issues fixed by Microsoft at that time, if it happen again. ;)

I have found some of the 'fast ring' releases to definitely be beta quality, but I really love this fast incremental approach to development of Windows 10. Reminds me of another company.... Bitsum! ;)

@Chris: Good luck on your search!
So here is my opinion on this.

SM AW and DiskKeeper are both a bit antiquated these days. Sure, it's still important to defragment your hard drive, but Windows will do that automatically. SM AW (please don't use other brand names here) is a bit different and has questionable utility. It probably is effective in some cases, but it's on the margin. It was acquired from a smaller company that I am not sure I should name.

So we have a situation where HDDs themselves are going to be extinct in the next decade. SSDs are the future. Sure, today, HDDs still have better price-per-GB value, but even that will change soon. After all, there's a lot less manufacturing that goes into SSDs once you get past the NAND chips, which are mass-produced. HDDs have all these mechanical parts and such I mean. So, it's bound to happen that SSDs replace HDDs entirely in the coming years.

As we all know, especially me, I have limited resources. So, I have to choose what I want to focus on. Thus, I intend to stay focused on real-time CPU and power optimization, and not presently get into any disk optimization, which I think is an industry already well covered.

The cookie expiration time was set to 1 day. I have changed that to 30 days. Please let me know if this changes the behavior. You will have to log in again. Let me know if this impacts.

Thanks for notifying me. I am investigating, though also am trying not to get too side-tracked back into web dev again ;p.

There are a couple issues I see and am trying a few quick setting changes.

I don't know if it's related, but  the account bridge between the main site and the forum is either malfunctioning, or at the very least I need to define the expected behavior so we know what happens when there are pre-existing accounts at the forum that contradict the main site, and other scenarios.

However, this login issue I think is some server setting. Please hold, let me play around ;).

Curiously, it doesn't happen to me. However, on another system I am unable to log in at all, due to the lack of real IP discovery I think, causing it to hit the max attempts per IP. All traffic is first routed through a reverse proxy firewall these days (couldn't otherwise stand the risk of a 0-day exploit).

ok, so I guess its because you don't use same data (user name-email/PW for each part of site (main site an forum).

Ok I cleared the cookies for this sit and thought it was working right then went to the home page and logged in with my e-mail and password and then went back to the forum and I was no longer logged in. Hope this helps out. Thanks.

I am using the link from menu option forum

I think this only has happened with when I updated to version 46. I can try and clear the cookie and give it another try.

I have to log into the forum everything I come back. I have it set for forever. I am using Firefox version 46 64bit Can you check on this? Thanks
Hi, Just so we understand better are you coming directly to
or your using link from menu option forum

If its the first sound like cookie issue, maybe clear then and retry.
Did this only happen when you updated to 46 ?
