iOS 11 Beta 5 stock on download

iOS 11 has been downloading since yesterday. It might be going on longer, but I only found out yesterday. Rebooting and connecting to charger didn’t solve the problem. Let’s see if going through iTunes will help.

Update 1:47 – According to iTunes my phone is up to date. I guess it’s a glitch.

Update August 17: It was not a glitch. Deleting the failed update in settings has fixed the problem.

Impressa Bladder Suppots Testing Day 1

It is very easy to insert. No different then a tampon. I was very much aware of it at first, I still am when I concentrate on it. It doesn’t bother me when I walk or climb stairs or over things like baby gate. There were bubbly filling for a while. I thought I was adjusting to it, but it turns out size 1 is not right for me. I will try size 2 tomorrow. 

Update June 30: The removal was very hard, it might be because I was clinching my muscles, I am still very sore. I will not be trying size 2 today. 

Calls suddenly not forwarding to my phone – going straight to Google Voicemail

I have had Google Voice for over 8 years and have never had an issue. Suddenly, calls are not being forwarded to my house phone. I did not get a new phone. I’ve had the same carrier the entire time I’ve used Google voice. My Google voice number is not blocked. I do not have do not disturb on. The number was verified years ago and has worked properly until just a few days ago. Everything goes straight to google voicemail. I didn’t touch anything on the app or the website – I never use either because I never have to!

Update 5:20 – I had called Spectrum. The tech guy said that there might be a problem with the modem. I will know for sure tomorrow.

Update June 30: The technician came today. He repaired the wiring and changed the channel the internet connection was on, as it was on the same channel as neighbors internet connection. The phone problem was an easy one. It was just not plugged into router. I could have easily fixed it myself if only I was more observant. 


C:\Windows\Prefetch is corrupt and unreadable

I have upgraded to Windows 10 without an issue. The problems started after the update has completed. Prefetch folder keeps getting corrupted. I have used chkdsk to fix it, but the problem keeps returning. Windows Resource Protection didn’t find any integrity violations which is good. Chkdsk /f /r was not able to fix the corruption.

I have ran a S.M.A.R.T test Power Cycle Count attribute is below 97%. I think my heard drive is on it’s way out this is why chksks can’t fix it. Any advice is welcome. smart test resutl

Update: 6/25/2017: My drive is worn but otherwise in a good shape.

The module “mshtml.dll” was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that “mshtml.dll’ is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

Method 1 has failed. Method 2 was to run sfc, which found nothing.

I had gone to Control Panel -> Find and Fix Problems -> Fix Problems With Windows Update. Let see if the Win7 updates error code 643 for kb 973688 was solved. The install was a success.

I have messed up and had to downgrade to Windows 7. I am currently trying to catch up with my updates, but keep heaving problems with Microsoft XML Core Service 4.0 updates. First, one I resolved by manually downloading it. Hopefully this one is going to be just as easy to fix.
