    Incompatible Software


    The first thing I did with my Win 10 setup is to install my comfort software. IE did not work for me but who cares, I just need it to download Google Chrome anyway. I had to use my old Opera browser installer to get Chrome. Then I uninstalled Opera and unpin IE after succesfully installing Chrome. I downloaded Avast too but it doesn't work. So, for now I am stuck with Windows Defender. That's it so far.

    Avast will have an update out in a day or two. It was on a PC I did an in place install and was uninstalled.

    I did as well and all my previously installed software from W7 runs just fine in W10. However, I did have to re-installed my graphics driver, which was no biggie.

    I had a problem with my graphics driver, too. Although the stock driver runs all my 4 monitors, the color on one monitor is off. When I installed the amd graphics driver, the color was corrected but the other monitor went grey. So, I just did a system restore and stayed with the native driver.

    Yeah, the native graphics driver did work, except that I couldn't set the screen resolution to the recommended setting.
