Windows 10: Update KB4532693 kills user data/profile
https://borncity.com/win/2020/02/13/windows-10-update-kb4532693-kills-user-data-profile/
Not anything I can confirm on the 2 PC's I updated yesterday.
No issues here either on the immediate three systems at hand.
I have some older computers that are running Windows 10 v1909 but will not be able to update them
till I get back home at the end of this month. The two I have with me are fairly new systems. :)

No problem here with KB4532693 on 1909, once the update sorted itself out. I had mix of Win and Office updates queued, and it took two passes to get them all downloaded and installed properly. Plus an extra Restart I added for good measure.

Just updated my win10 laptop and no issues only one pass required and reboot on my system I keep away from M$ Office :)

Just the Cumulative Update, Adobe Flash and the Windows Malicious Software tool.

Microsoft Wants to do Away with Windows 10 Local Accounts
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-wants-to-do-away-with-windows-10-local-accounts/

Ha, I have just been looking at this very thing about changing my account to a Local one.

Quote from: Extract from article
Microsoft wants you in the cloud

As Windows 10 evolves, much of its functionality and features are tied to the cloud and your Microsoft Account.

Whether it be Your Phone, OneDrive, Office integration, Xbox, and the Microsoft Store, without a Microsoft Account Windows 10 is not as feature-rich.

Feature Rich and Junk Poor.
Half of these features are basically to drink the MS Cool Aid, in much the same way as the Apple Walled Garden.

I have zero need for this so called feature rich environment.
