Emory Accidentally Sends Reformat Request to All Windows PCs

Have you ever reformatted a computer and then immediately realized you shouldn’t have? Well, an “accident” at Emory University this week will make your mistake look like a brilliant, carefully considered decision. Here’s the crux of what happened: A Windows 7 deployment image was accidentally sent to all Windows machines, including laptops, desktops, and even servers. This image started with a repartition/reformat set of tasks. As soon as the accident was discovered, the SCCM server was powered off – however, by that time, the SCCM server itself had been repartitioned and reformatted. What did we learn today? Always backup. Backup everything. Everything always.

Uninstall Preloaded Windows 8 Apps in Bulk With This Program

Removing bloatware from a new PC is a rite of passage for most Windows users whenever they get a new machine. And for years, desktop users have turned to third-party programs such as PC Decrapifier to automate bloatware removal.
