    I'm on my 5th install and haven't turned anything off, installs have gone good. On a 1Mbps connection it does take some time, 4 to 5 hours download and another 30 to 50 minutes install.
    And the real-time scanning of your virus program has a lot to do with that. I upgraded an Asus eeePC 9" netbook (the original) in less than an hour without a single issue, including the download and installation.

    Likewise, I used the MCT and downloaded and was inside Windows 10 in about an hour.

    I do turn UAC off though, because it's more of annoyance than anything for me. Not had any issues with it off though.
    Does this mean that you can still access features such as Edge and Mail with UAC turned off? I would love to be able to use them but cannot with UAC removed.

    Yes my UAC is off and Edge works fine. I don't use the Mail app, but I tested it and it starts.
    What is irritating is that by default when opening command prompt it always starts with limited privilege unless you manually start it with 'Run as Administrator' even though I am using an administrator account.

    I started a new install this AM after finding 4 failures in the Windows Updates. Seems the Upgrade to Win10 didn't work well with Wi-Fi, I plugged in an Ethernet cable and all is good after only 2.4 hours.

    They work for me with UAC turned off.

    I can't comment on visual eye candy improvements, but performance wise, it apparently will improve existing games.
    Only if the existing games are updated to support it. Look, this stuff isn't magic It's an API for hardware. A game written for DX9 or 11 doesn't know about the new, updated features or the new improvements in DX12, in fact those games don't know the DX12 API exists at all. They aren't even going to use the it, they will continue to use the DX9/11 API they were written for. That's how it works.

    If, for example, a game like BF4 gets updated to support DX12 - it happens, every once and while - then sure, improvements galore (maybe. Not always). Otherwise, no, DX12 means nothing for old games.

    From what I've heard, previous games will stand to improve performance-wise from DX12, even if they aren't out of the box DX12 games, again, so I've heard.

    Here's a good read, from what I saw glancing through it:

    The only windows worse than 10 is 8. I am seriously considering going back to 7 though...

    Have you forgotten or just overlooked ME?
