    Nope, I'm done. The problem now is the d**n thing is still in my updates and wants to reinstall when I do updates.......
    Looking at the Ubuntu DVD I burned about a month ago to try on an older computer......... It's looking more appealing by the minute.

I only have a few minor irritations, like I can't customize the Lock screen, the microphone sound records very low compared to Windows 7 and backup is a little confusing (I still do the Windows 7 backup which is a setting?), but that' about it. I got to WIndows 10 as an upgrade which went very smoothly on a HP Zbook 17 laptop.
    Oh and I almost forgot, needed updates to Quicktime and Samsung Magician to fully support Windows 10, but it isn't hurting me that they haven;t been updated.

    Windows 10

    Was really frustrated last night so did some more reading and found a program (app) to disable Microsoft's snooping, also realized all the problems I was having was Upgrade related and would not be a problem with a clean install. So have my security key ready, download the ISO and burn it, do a clean install and shazam! It's running like a top, no problems, random or otherwise, been reinstalling all my normal programs and configuring the OS the way I want it (as much as possible at this point).
    Sooooo basically with most of the negatives and problems removed/disabled I find it's a little faster than 7 but not really all that much, boot time is about the same.

    If you don't mind, what is the name of the program or its URL?

    One thing to factor in is that immediately after installation, the computer spends quite a bit of time rebuilding indexes, and I believe the Installer also spends time trying to compress updates (although there shouldn't be too many of these). So you may find the peak speed is achieved when it was been run for a few days and settled down.

    Frustration is my middle name but i'm also glad to see you didn't give up , it's good to have someone else that gets as frustrated and disgusted as you do .

    Welcome aboard my friend.

    My Windows 10 boots 10 times faster than 7 Did with the same hardware. It used to take ~2 minutes to boot 7. now Windows 10 boots in less than one minute.
