    win7 and new to 10
    Thread Starter

    That is helpful news, Bree. I was a bit concerned about not getting critical updates. I use older software and run virtual XP with some software that won't work on 7. It would have been a disaster if 7 automatically updated to 10 and I know people who had this happen without choosing it.

    It was windows update's default of 'automatically download and install...' that caught them out. Even back then it could be avoided by uninstalling the 'Get Windows 10' updates and setting windows update for 'check for updates, but let me choose...'.

    Brightness is from ACPI driver or Monitor Software not GPU Drivers.
