    Oops, I forgot.
    Thanks for reminder.

    I'll bow back out now.
    Just wanted to notify about that old, vulnerable 7zip.

    Lizzy, have you ever run a disk cleanup? The built in Windows cleanup. If you go to My PC, right click the "C" drive, choose properties, you should get a box like this. Please post a screenshot of the display.....

    It might be easier to do a Clean install and only install the software you use.

    Windows Update takes care of 98% of the drivers, so you don't have to worry about those.
    If after a clean install there are any devices flagged in Device manager, then you cna find the drive on Asus or the device manufacturer's support page.

    I don't recall seeing that much in Pgms & Feats, so I connected my HP printer and let Windows Update provide the driver.
    Nothing showed up in Pgms & Feats - all the extras do show up in Devices and Printers.

    I'm just wondering if Lizzy is adding in extra stuff by using an install package or if the extra stuff carried over from the previous OS. Either way, a clean install would weed out the OEM bloat.

    I'd like to see the Pgms & Feats after a clean install, letting Windows manage the drivers. I'm certain it would be ... well cleaner.
