    Better Performance & No Blue Screens

    After recovering from multiple blue screens I made a decision to use only Microsoft software - Mail, Edge, Defender. So far so good. Not one new blue screen. Could my MS only decision really be helping or is it just in my head?

    It's in your head. What programs were giving you trouble?

    Microsoft programs are quite capable of malfunctioning and making a mess too. As far as 3rd party programs are concerned, the best policy is to find good ones and stick with them as long as they function properly and are updated as required. I have a collection of programs I stick to for many years. Some, like Total Commander, Firefox and Revo Uninstaller made their appearance as far as 15 or more years ago and still being updated and working super.

    It's in you head. I have not had a BSOD (or whatever the fashion trending colour is) for many years. It has always been a mix of MS Applications and many from elsewhere.
    I'm not more trusting of an MS application. You learn over the years as to what you trust and this varies over the years.

    Many applications have fallen by the wayside over the years, or rather decades now. New applications have replaced those.

    If an application works badly or damaging in some aspect, does nothing useful, causes wasted time then it is dropped.

    Also you have to check the hardware is OK as all your OS and applications sit on top of that.

    Many people seem to keep installing on dying HDDs for some odd reason. The short arms and deep pockets syndrome.

    The experience of one individual over a relatively short period of time is not statistically valid. For that you would need many individuals over a long period of time, and precautions would need to be taken to ensure other factors did not overly influence results.
