    A little off topic, but can anyone recommend a simple benchmarking tool that will measure processor, graphics card and hard disk performance?

    On my Windows 7 system when I use Bridge CS6(64) to create hirez previews of a folder full of RAW photos I hear my WD Raptor's whirring away while in Windows 10 they seem very quiet and performance is sluggish. I'm also getting strange hard drive error claims when I reboot into Windows 7. It has me wondering if there isn't some SATA driver problem going on (as well as the graphics driver..).

    I run a 256GB Samsung Pro SSD for my OS and Apps while my files load and save on a WD 600GLFS Raptor and I use a WD 300GLFS Raptor as a scratch/cache disk. So performance has always been quite good until this Windows 10 install. I'm suspecting some driver is not working properly.

    Thank you C. Chicken. Windows 7 checks out fine with above average performance across the board. I don't overclock so it's what I expect. I'll try it with Win 10 when I get a chance. I use a mobile rack for my SSD, so it's pretty easy to swap OS's. But as I said previously, when I boot Windows 7 *after running Windows 10* the system insists on scanning my Hard disks (not the SSD) for errors, which is something I NEVER see, except if there's a serious system crash, which is also very rare.

    I'll post the Win10 results as they compare with how Win7 performs.

    I have had that "Errors are your disk" on my HDD before, I would let it do its thing.

    Great! Can't wait to the output!

    Before running UserBenchMark I uninstalled the NVidia driver and then used the Display Driver Uninstaller tool (DDU v15.7.5.5) to remove anything left over. I deleted any NVidia related folders and emptied the User temp folder. After a re-boot I launched System Update and it downloaded and installed the NVidia v358.91 driver together with all the extra 3D stuff, control panel, etc.. So, Microsoft DOES automatically install a full NVidia driver package, though nothing after v358.91.

    After rebooting I launched UserBenchMark. Both systems (Win7 and Win10) test pretty well the same.

    I also checked Windows Event Logs which go back to March 28 when I installed Windows 10. Here's what's there, though I assume all Window installs will stumble on occasion and I don't know concerned I should be about these errors.

    Some, like error #10016 "DistributedCOM", have occurred many times. That one has 95 entries on various dates. Might that suggest a shared IRQ conflict? I thought we were past that since Windows 95 ...

    Error#, Error Name : # of instances (date/time)

    #51, "disk" : 15x (all on 16-04-02 at 17h41)
    #219, "Kernel-PnP" : 65x (on misc. dates)
    #7034, "Service Control Manager" : 24x (on misc. dates)
    #10016, "DistributedCOM" : 95x (on misc. dates)
