Windows 10 Malware Big Blue Screen

frustratedMicrosoft Is At It Again

On April 24th, 2016 I shared a method for getting rid of those annoying Windows 10 upgrade reminders that Microsoft installed on your pc, whither you wanted it or not.

Then Microsoft wrote a Malware program to get around that fix. They snuck in a the same update and reinstalled the “Get Windows 10” app (KB3035583) on May 6th. Even when I said I didn’t want it.

The method to uninstall the Win10 updates had been provided by BetaNews who shared a great step by step article to help you with this annoying issue, still works. See Remove unwanted Windows 10 upgrade files from Windows 7 and Windows 8.x

Now we’re up to July 16 and they’re at it again. This time they’ve installed an update KB3173040 to tell you:

If you have Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), the following full-screen notification might appear on your computer:
Sorry to interrupt, but this is important.
Windows 10 free upgrade offer ends July 29.

Don’t they get it? I DON’T WANT Win10 AT ALL!

So thanks to BetaNews we can use the same steps to get rid of this new annoyance. They say they provide you with a “don’t remind me again”; but after all this, who’s going to believe that? I’m not.

Here’s what you can do to uninstall this updated and keep it from happening again.
Go to Start > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall or change a program.
Click View installed updates on the left.
Use the search box to locate the following updates:
– KB3173040
Right-click and select Uninstall.
When done:
Go to System and security in the Control Panel,
Select Windows Update > Check for updates.
Right-click each of the above updates in turn and select Hide update.

Then reboot your system. Hopefully that takes care of the problem. This time.

NASCAR – Tony Stewart Breaks Winless Streak

3-Time Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart – Wins at Sonoma

Sonoma California
June 26, 2016

Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 will become a favorite for many race fans regardless of series or generation. Tony Stewart breaks his 84 race winless streak with a win at Sonoma. Marking his 49th Career win!

Also known as “Smoke”, Tony won at least 1 race each season from the start of his career until 2013. The dry spell of 2014 and 2015 came after several tragedies and emotional comebacks in Tony’s life. He missed the first 8 races of the 2016 season after suffering a broken back in an all-terrain vehicle accident a couple of weeks before his final season was to begin in February at the Daytona 500. A race he was never able to win in his Cup career.

His father, Nelson Stewart, was still wiping away tears while watching his only son celebrate in Victory Lane.  “It’s been a tough three years not just for him but everyone that’s close to him,” his father said. “I don’t know what to say. We all needed that bad. He really needed that bad.”

Since 2013 the specifications for Nascar set-ups have changed many times. Tony said many times that these set-ups didn’t mesh with his style of driving and he was struggling to find the right way to drive them from his perspective. But over the past few weeks, Tony and his Crew Chief Michael Bugarewicz have been improving the set up to fit Smoke’s style. Continue reading

3-Time NASCAR Champ Inducted into the USAC Hall Of Fame

Anthony Wayne Stewart 3-Time Sprint Cup Champion2016 USAC Hall Of Fame Inductees Announced

On June 20 the United States Auto Club (USAC) announced their Hall of Fame Inductees. The class of 8  five drivers, two officials and a car owner-chief mechanic. Alphabetically Russ Clendenen, Jimmy Davies, Bob Higman, Tommy Hinnershitz, Dick King, Pat O’Connor, Tony Stewart and Bob Tattersall.

It’s that 3-Time NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart that caught my attention. USAC’s announcement profiles each of their inductees. All 8 have overcome challenges, persevered through trials, set backs and hardships. And all of them have lived their dream and triumphed.

Tony Stewart, of Columbus, Ind., became the first driver ever to claim all three of USAC’s National championships in a single season (in 1995) and is one of only six USAC “Triple Crown Champions.” He won the 1994 USAC National Midget title, then added the Midget, Sprint and Silver Crown honors the next season. Proficient in virtually every form of motorsports, he has earned three NASCAR Cup championships (2002, 2005 and 2011) and a 1997 Indy Racing League title. He has 27 USAC National Midget wins to his credit, as well as 10 wins in the Sprint cars and three in the Silver Crown series. A member of the National Midget Hall of Fame (2001), his list of impressive motorsports awards and accolades continues to grow. In five Indianapolis 500 appearances, he started first in 1996, finished fifth from the front row in 1997, was ninth in 1999 and sixth in 2001. His charitable contributions through his Tony Stewart Foundation are endless. In addition to his USAC driving titles, he also has seven Sprint Car Owner championships as well as seven in the Silver Crown Series as an owner.

Tony also owns Tony Stewart Racing a title-winning World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series team.

He’s also part owner in Stewart-Haas Racing. Another title-winning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team co-owned with Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation – the largest CNC machine tool builder in North America.

Online voting for the final four 2016 inductees into the USAC Hall of Fame will be available on the USAC website Monday (June 20) at www.usacracing.com.
