Microsoft. They're the reason we can't have nice things.

The latest Win 10 update caused some issues.
- Send Later Addon stopped
- Not allowing scripting/autocomplete programs to operate. (FastKeys, AHK, PerfectKeyboard)

Anyone else experiencing this and happen to have a suggestion?

The latest windows 10 update didn't cause any problems for me. However, I don't use the send later add-on or autohotkey. I haven't noticed any other threads mentioning either so perhaps you are running into a windows driver problem. Try booting windows in "safe mode with networking" (which will use generic drivers) and see if it has the same problems. I believe it disable unessential windows services when running in safe mode, so keep in mind that your anti-virus scanner will probably be disabled.

I just noticed viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3029371 where somebody claims the send later add-on no longer works with TB52, but it turns out to have been a self-inflicted problem.

Thanks. I tried all those before. The Good News is that a Thunderbird update solved both issues. Thanks!
