I thought the upgrade and pursuant clean install would be smooth based upon my move from 7 to 8 to 8.1.
I have upgraded with my files to Win 10. I like it.
However, I downloaded Ccleaner and it showed quite a bit of clutter(2GB) .
I never use a registry cleaner as I feel only those who are skilled with it should do so. In the past anything that touched the registry like Ccleaner - even the Windows part, Revo program remover, IObit remover etc. etc., always ended up in a dropped file and was wore than keeping the orphans etc..
I have been reading and learned that a clean install removed the dvd player. So first it was the loss of media center and now the dvd player. I have also read that activation is very sketchy and that keys are unique to your pc.
I have a reinstallation disc but this is disturbing news. Although the pcs run well I would like to regain the 2 GB of space and allow the registry to run as it should. With the news I have read about, I am hesitant to go forward with the clean install. I tried VLC years ago and found it to be something you have to really get used to.
Do you have any comments that would help with my thoughts.
