    FrozenCursor there is a problem with 10, where it will freeze, because of Defender and Index, if you start with the RTM and then let it update to each preview.

    I found that just loading 10586. It got rid of that problem. The RTM had some really serious issues in it.

    That's a good question tommo. I would imagine that it should be a 'one off' creation and that it would work with all future updates and builds of W10. It would be a pretty serious oversight by MS if that were not the case.

    I run Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, CCleaner , and Defraggler.... and of course Windows Defender with it being stock in Win 10.

    Sit down and look at these settings within each program. I run these once a month besides Defraggler, (once every 3 months)

    They do great, keeps my system fast and up to par and I recommend them to everyone!
