comment How to resolve error 0x80070103 when updating Nvidia drivers in Windows 10?
Have you seen windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows-8/… ? - this error normally indicates "you might be trying to install a driver that's already installed, or a driver that might be less compatible than one you already have installed on your PC"

That looks like you're looking at the Japanese language version, so which character(s) are not as you expect?

comment Why does Chrome show the same 0x167F unicode character differently in 2 different places?
Because the font(s) may have been updated with the OS (in a similar way to the way Segoe was between Windows 7 and 8). There may still be a limited set of fonts with the character, which may be why you're seeing so few variants.

If you were using Windows 8 (or later), I'd suggest pointing the mail app at your outlook.com account, then you'd get toast notifications of new mail, and meeting reminders.

comment Website Not loading on some computers but loads on a single computer on the same LAN
Looks like your private networks there don't allow tracing out of the network, so your issue is either within your local networks, or possibly upstream. Speak to your network admin to find out why you cannot traceroute to that destination.

comment Unable to launch apps installed from a previous profile
The profile was deleted via the profiles section within the advanced tab of the computer properties - this deleted the user's profile directory in as clean a way as the UI allows.

I can't see any way to do that, as the store seems to think the apps are already installed
