Anyone else have their Explorer spiking to insane CPU usage causing a few seconds of lockup constantly? This only started like a week ago but it is on both my desktop and Surface Pro...
Latest build 9926 plus updates work just fine for me -- have got some programs running on W10 which wouldn't even install on W8 / W8.1. All my programs that were on W7 including things like SAPGUI etc run just fine on it -- excellent compatibility.
I only need an XP VM and a multi media server (Linux) now and a few W10 VM's for testing. The XP machine has all my VINYL cutting software / hardware which only runs on that platform --too expensive to update the hardware --in any case it works brilliantly. Also have some old HP blueprint (archtectural) priter and plotter on the XP machine and some other XP only hardware.
So I can finally --even for logging on to work applications retire my W7 machine. (I won't actually do it until W10 RTM) but so far everything is looking good with the latest build.
I recommend actually NOT doing a clean install until RTM --the reason being is that some programs and drives when installing cleanly might look for all sorts of "pre-reqs" or the drivers won't exist in W10 versions yet. However often the old versions will run even though they won't install from new. I know for a lot of people doing an UPDATE rather than a clean install is not usually recommended but in this case I'd go for it and do your CLEAN install when W10 is finally released.
Wasn't there supposed to be a new (official) preview this month?
Will that run as an automatic update ?
I think if you have your setting on fast update then it will download but not install the update till you tell it to? Or maybe not, might we all wake up in the morning with a new build of the Impressive kind of Ten P
