Mit dem Update von Windows 10 Build 1803 auf das Herbst-Update 1809 hat Intel offenbar einen Bug eingeschleppt, der den Intel Grafiktreiber bei bestimmten Systemen auf den Auslieferungstreiber zurücksetzt.
Scheinbar läuft in Windows ein mal pro Tag ein Task der den aktuell installierten neueren Treiber durch einen alten Treiber zurücksetzt ( vom 24.10.2016).

Betroffene Hardware:

  • Intel Core i7 6500U mit Intel Graphics 520

Betroffene Treiber:

  • Intel HD & Iris Graphics Drivers Version WHQL


Bestimmte Anwendungen, die bestimmte Funktionen des Intel Grafiktreibers einsetzen, funktionieren nicht mehr.

Betroffene Software:

  • DxO Optics Pro 11
  • DxO PhotoLab 1.x

Ich habe heute versucht, das Problem dem Intel Support zu melden.
Dies war nicht möglich, es wurde nur ein automatischer Rückruftermin am 09.10.2018 - 09:45 Uhr vorgeschlagen :-/


FileHistory to an NetworkAttachedStorage (NAS) is your perfect buddy in every day file versioning and easy backup. Everything worked like a charme.
You decided to move to a new storage, reinstalled it but used a new hostname or even only changed the hostname of your NAS system.


Windows FileHistory stopped because the old NAS-Hostname is gone or it contents could not be found.

Solution (valid for Windows 8.x & 10):

Easy ;-)
Open the Windows Explorer on the affected System and logged in User.

Copy text as followed in the adress bar: %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\FileHistory\Configuration

Please let me focus your attention to an very well written and perfect summed up post of Michael Niehaus on  MS TechNet:
This is perfect to reduce OS Size on low/midprice devices that come with (very) limited storage space.

Microsoft hast made a big step by developing Windows 10 and releasing it today.

I tried to get the update on serveral machines today by using the common way through the GWX updater.
Despite the updater itself got an update it does'nt downloaded the Windows 10 files.

After a short research in www here is a proven failsafe way to force that:

  1. Start Windows Update and receive the latest Updates for your system. Set Windows Update to download and install all updates automaticly.
  2. Start the Windows Explorer, navigate to "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete the content of the folder (not the folder itself!)
  3. Start an commandline (cmd.exe) with administrator rights and execute the command as follows: wuauclt.exe /updatenow
    It will force the redownload of all updates that have to be in the folder mentioned above and it will also force the download of the Windows 10 installation files.
  4. Check if your actions have been successful by starting Windows Update that sould state it is downlaoding Windows 10 files.

UPDATE 2015-08-03 - fixing further donwload showstoppers

On some machines the Download of the installer will be successful but the installation itself won't - you get some failed to install errors within Windows Update log.
On other machines the Update itself won't show up as available.

Here is another tip to fix that and force the installation of the update:

  1. open the Windows Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
  2. navigate to the folowing string: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade
  3. create a new dword (32bit) and name it: AllowOSUpgrade
  4. open the new entry and set its value to: 1
  5. now juts navigate to Windows Update and search for new updates
