    Well....was fun while it was lasted. I stumbled onto how to reset the machine to the factory image. Soon as it was done I went in and turned off the driver updates, guess it has been about 2 weeks now. Have had zero issues uploading pictures to Facebook and various sites....until this morning. Now when I log onto Facebook with Chrome everything loads....appears normal. When I go to leave a comment I can't. Machine is not locked up, just can't leave any comments. Tried Firefox. Can log on and leave comments....but back to stalling when attempting to upload images. Just checked the wifi adapter driver, it has not changed, it is still the driver from 11/29/2016, version Really wish I could figure out how t make a bootable USB stick with the Windows 8 image on it, I hate Winblows 10.

    Morning Doug. While I don't think Windows 8 is the answer here is how to do it.

    The post that this link takes you to shows you how to create a bootable USB.

    Win 10 reset

    You will need Windows 8.1 software. Can't remember your machine make but some suppliers, for a cost, will send you original recovery disks. You can also get the 8.1 code here.

    Let me start with we have an extremely slow ISP. We are at the "end of the line", only available ISP, other than satellite, is Century Links 1.5mbps d/l. We rarely see .7mbps currently, CL is claiming that we will be on fiber optics by summer. Anyway, here is my problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 laptop. My wife has an older HP. We both have cells phones and tablets, all of which do not share this problem. My Dell is damn near consonantly disconnecting from our Network. I have tried both Dells and Intels drivers, neither helps. It has gotten to the point that if I want to upload a 100k image to Facebook I need to go plug into the modem first. If I try to upload the same image using my wifes machine it uploads, slowly, but uploads. Getting very frustrated. Any advice would be greatly appreciated....
    Part of Centurylink internet is you constantly get changed on their servers. they have you on one that usually 100 miles away from you. their techs do maintenance at 3am every morning. messing things up for us.
    We have a guy in Henderson, TX filing lawsuit against them for lowsy service and over priced billings.
    From what I have been reading on Microsoft and other forums, it seems cell phones are causing the issue with connection. majority of people posting complaints, mention cell phones. it seems that those cell phones are sucking up the internet. I have the same complaint, I use my sisters internet and her and my niece use their cell phones to play games connecting to the internet. I have connection, but when they use their cell phones, no data can be received or sent till they get off their phones.
    In order for getting mine to stay connected, I uninstalled driver and software, rebooted twice, then in my download folder, I left click, right click, open properties, ran it under the compatability troubleshooter, it chose XP SP3, and installed. I have connection but when sis and niece use phones I cant use internet till they get off their phones.
