    A fresh copy of 10 ? By that do you mean a Retail 10 Pro version ?
    I never did find an answer to any of the issues I referenced in this thread and I finally gave up and did a reset of Windows 10 which deleted everything on my HD and reinstalled Windows 10. It's kind of a pain to do but in the end it's probably worth it. I used to do a lot of experimentation installing and uninstalling software and over 6 years my system was probably pretty kludged up but now I have a fresh copy of Windows 10 and I'm sure I'll be better off.

    Just wondering how did the reset go. Is all good now?
    Looking at that myself.

    The reset went well. According to what I was told if you tell it to delete everything, it does and then puts down a completely fresh copy of Windows 10. The curious thing for me was if it cleaned everything off the drive, how did it put down a fresh copy of Windows 10? I was told that the download of the OS install files that was made at the time of the upgrade is stashed somewhere, perhaps on another partition or that perhaps a virtual drive is created prior to the wipe of the HD but however it worked, I got a clean copy of Windows 10.

    Just something interesting that came in my inbox today is today's copy of Windows Secrets Newsletter where Fred Langa talks about how to reinstall Win 10 via the reset and by doing a total reinstall from installable media. I wish this article had come out last week instead of this week as I would have preferred to have a clean install from DVD but I didn't have all the info I needed. Here's a link to the article.....

    Well the upgrade went so well guess I'll not be doing a reset. There is a recovery partition created during the upgrade, imagine that's where the reset pulls the clean install from. Glad everything worked out for you.
    thanks,
