That's what I've been doing ever since that DISASTROUS 2012 (or was it 2014) one that destroyed MS Word and wreaked more goddam havoc than I could imagine.
My new setting is "NEVER."

My understanding is that it will come in the guise of an UPDATE from MSFT.
My understanding is ALSO that it will load the .exe and if you're not CAREFUL, it will load the W10 OS over my BRAND NEW...

Maybe better explanation:
The files I open from gmail to add as an attachment via the paper clip icon come up "minimized" but they take up the whole screen.
The little drag arrows will not pull...

By complete accident. And suddenly my img file went full screen with NO size icon.
Now it will ONLY bring up full screen for any pic files I want to attach to an email.

I did a restore and it fixed it for a day, but now it's gone again.
It would allow me to save to a Favorites folder.
Is there a fix?

Ooops, no I didn't.
But that's still not exactly what I want to do.
I'd like to get the FIRST Chrome home page to come up as the subsequent ones do.
No bands of stuff ...just white.

It's not on the screen until the browser opens.
It doesn't invade the screen background I use.
It is only on the open FIRST google browser page
February 10th, 2014, 02:45 PM
without the blue band at the bottom?
If I click on Home icon, I get the google page with a blue band at the bottom.
Here's what it looks like:
But if I open a...

:confused:I do use Malwarebytes. But isn't that AFTER an infection?
I got Visual Bee when I downloaded Firefox.
It came with the browser.
MAYBE I didn't go to Mozilla for the download but do...

I had it and quit it when it got too complicated with "versions."
I now regret that. (I think)
I tried a couple months ago to install FF on this computer and got something awful called Visual...

I tried system restore from earlier date.
my last backup is REAL old.
September 23rd, 2013, 12:33 PM
Yep. That was part of what gave me the BLUE SCREEN.
AND... did not take out the update stuff.:mad:
September 23rd, 2013, 11:46 AM
I looked at that W7 link and it appears to address the problem, but it looks complicated for ME to try it.
Just scared since I got the blue screen of death last week from TRYING to eliminate the...

:mad:Link in OP says:
Where the hell does anything tell HOW to change the program?
I google "fix microsoft september update" and get to www.fixitnow
I'd sure appreciate knowing HOW to...

I did a previous thread and followed some leads there but it is STILL there.
I don't know what (or if) I should pursue any further.
a check for updates shows
"No important updates"

Until I hear DEFINITIVELY that Microsoft has regained its integrity and lets me use the Word Starter program that came with the computer, I will keep using Open Office and just have stuff in .odt...
September 15th, 2013, 11:56 AM
I just checked MANUALLY for updates and see nothing available.
September 14th, 2013, 10:39 PM
The 9/12 update from MSFT destroyed everything you aren't paying $99 per year for.
I have disabled ALL updates from the extortionist company.
September 13th, 2013, 05:24 PM
Good grief! Now today I have jumped thru some hoops to remove hilited popups and ...THINK.... I handled it by disabling Tidy Network extension on Chrome and going into IE Tools>Advanced> and...
September 13th, 2013, 04:53 PM
I disabled the Tidy Net extension. Looks like that may have been it.

I'm suddenly getting red underlined words in various forums.
If you put the cursor across them, they pop up some ad or other thing to click on. Which I don't.
Anyone know what to look for...
September 12th, 2013, 10:19 PM
I sure didn't CHOOSE to uninstall Word Starter.
It was an auto update on shutdown last night. It's now set to NEVER update.
If this was a human, Microsoft would be an extortionist.:mad:
September 12th, 2013, 06:45 PM
Gonna just go with Open Office and let it save in .odt instead of .docx.
Hope it doesn't screw up the files if I use as attachments in emails, etc.
I also changed my MSFT settings to...
September 12th, 2013, 04:40 PM
Just did and got the dreaded blue screen. Safe mode repair apparently repaired the devastation whatever it was but I still
have no access to Word.
I can get a fake one freeware or go for buying...
September 12th, 2013, 12:08 PM
All my Word docs are unusable.
Is there any way to get the starter back?
This is disgraceful for Microsoft.
Oh, I can pay for Office which I don't want, but the starter was fine for my use.
