Windows 10: A few problems with my Windows 10 install

    A few problems with my Windows 10 install

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro from 7 Ultimate (clean install), and I've been having some issues that I was hoping to get some insight into:

    1. My computer reboots about half of the time when I try to shutdown from Windows. I have turned fast boot off.

    2. My computer doesn't seem to want to wake from sleep from Windows 10. When sleeping, moving the mouse/keyboard will wake the monitors, keyboard, etc., but just results in a black screen with nothing happening. The HDD light will occasionally be active in this state, but the computer is otherwise unresponsive (tried Ctrl+Shift+ESC, Ctrl+Alt+Delete).

    3. *EDIT* I get strange graphics glitches while inside of the desktop, in the form of flickering when aero (not sure if that's the right word anymore?) graphics are changing. For example, I have the background set to slide show, and when the desktop background changes i get flickering (kind of looks like screen tear) across the desktop/taskbar until the transition changes, or when I do things like Alt+Tab or Win+Tab.
    *EDIT* - Seems to be fixed! Saw nVidia had new drivers, used DDU in safe mode to uninstall nVidia AND intel drivers, and rebooted with manual install of new drivers :)

    4. I am also getting frequent annoying popups about antispyware... they make the chime but the notification disappears quickly on the bottom right. The popups say something to the effect of "antispyware disabled", I use bitdefender but have tried with other free AV's with the same results.

    I would appreciate any insight into this issues. I do realize that this is new OS and that bugs come with the territory, but I haven't seen much online about the issues I am having, has anyone else experienced them or found fixes?

    Some of these seem like a hardware problem to me, however I also have OSX 10.10 and OpenSUSE running on my PC without issue, which makes me think this is something to do with drivers I have installed or Windows 10 itself.

    As far as my system, I have windows installed in UEFI mode, running through Clover UEFI bootloader. As far as I know this should not affect the installation, as Clover is just chainloading the normal microsoft .efi file to boot into Windows 10.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, I can also provide any more information that would be helpful. Thank you :)
