comment How to get LACP teaming and VLANs working again after Windows 10 version 1511 upgrade?
thanks, that last comment of yours gives me some hope: the driver is not for my card but for much newer cards, but ANS support in windows 10 was pulled there too... Hopefully they will fix it as they promise, and in my card as well.

@Vinayak: I can install Intel's driver for windows 7, but unfortunately it gives the Windows-10-specific error message I quoted in my question. I don't have the older driver I used, and I don't know its version, unfortunately.

It all worked perfectly well in Windows 10 prior to 1511 update, so Intel flat out lies in that table... I appreciate your efforts but frankly "downgrade to Windows 7 or wait for an updated driver" is not an answer I was looking for.

There are no drivers for Windows 10 for Pro/100pt. I wish it was that easy.

@RonMaupin: my point is, it all worked OK in windows 10 before this update, and I have a feeling it's an artificial limitation, e.g. a plot to force users to upgrade to Windows server or whatever. So maybe there is some kind of a workaround?

comment IPv6 Geolocation
@RonMaupin: Because of the IP address shortage, this is only going to be worse. IP address blocks get re-sold on a secondary market, and are sub-divided into ever smaller blocks, which are re-sold again. So these geolocation databases are having trouble keeping up.

comment Missing “eject” option on USB drives on Windows 7?
@principal-ideal-domain: If you do an "eject" by any means other than just physically yanking the drive out, Windows will do all the necessary housekeeping, so the answer is yes.

comment Can Intel RST in RAID5 configuration be used for Windows boot drive?
@qasdfdsaq: RAID1, RAID0 and RAID10: sure, always. RAID5? Not so, I remember not being able to create or change RAID5 volumes in RST option ROM, and not being able to boot from RST RAID5. This was many years ago, though.

Should work, I haven't tested, though.

comment Does Windows 7 support 802.3ad (link aggregation) natively?
It depends on usage patterns... If you, say, copy two files simultaneously it will be beneficial. Moreover, starting with Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, SMB 3.0 supports multichannel: blogs.technet.com/b/josebda/archive/2012/06/28/…

comment Can I block ALL file downloads in Chrome?
Actually, this solution actually works, to my huge surprise. (Chrome honors IE security zones, as far as downloads are concerned). This is confusing to the user (file downloads, and then Chrome says "download failed"), and can be subverted by the user by editing the registry, but this solution does block ALL downloads in Chrome, without affecting anything else.

comment Can I block ALL file downloads in Chrome?
Thank you. Unfortunately, Windows Family Safety: 1. Does not specifically do what I wanted (to block all file downloads). 2. Does not work with domain accounts at all. UAC should be enabled of course, though, and not only for kids...

comment Can I block ALL file downloads in Chrome?
@avirk: I'm aware of this "feature". I'd rather not send every URL my kids visits to Microsoft, moreover it does not appear to be working very well (msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/…;, and it does not support domain accounts, and it does not have a feature I asked specifically about (block all downloads).

comment What exactly is VGA, and what is the difference between it and a video card?
There is no difference whatsoever, whether wires are routed to the PCI connector, or if all connections are inside your northbridge. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conventional_PCI#PCI_address_spaces

comment Why do computers no longer use screen savers?
In fact, OLED displays are susceptible to burn-in... This is why the time display in "night clock" mode on smartphones moves around (kind of a screensaver). If/when we'll have big OLEDs for computer use, screen savers will be relevant again.

comment What exactly is VGA, and what is the difference between it and a video card?
Even if you video card is integrated, it is still connected to the rest of the system via some kind of a bus: PCIe, PCI, AGP, ISA, etc. These buses can connect external components to the motherboard, and can connect internal components inside the chipset (SATA, video, etc.)

comment How to get TV image to computer?
What do you mean by "transfer the TV image to the computer": Save/Process it on the computer itself, or just display it in real-time on your All-in-One?
