    I recall being asked, when updating a program or adding a program to the system, if I would like to create a system restore point. No one remembers that? In both 7 and 8?
    That had to be built in that program's installer.

    If system restore was not activated, would the program still ask if you would like to create a restore point?

    I never paid attention to that detail.

    I thought system restore was a windows service that kept information on your system, in case an update or newly installed program messed up your computer --- you would be able to restore it to its previous state without the new update or program you just installed.

    It is but a program can invoke it too. Revo Uninstaller has that option before a program is uninstalled but I'm not sure it does it if system restore is not active. Gonna have to try that.

    I'm not sure either.

    Well I'm miffed the other way. I don't use SR and it's always on after an upgrade including this one.

    All this fuss, page after page, thread after thread about something that takes 10 - 15 seconds ONCE (I repeat: ONCE!) after each build upgrade. I find it hilarious
    It's not a fuss just a discussion. This laptop I'm upgrading has an AMD CPU so I expect it to take some time. Will be interesting to see that if you have SR on before upgrading and turns out as off afterwards and vice versa.

    maybe this means the build is so good we can't find anything more to focus on!
    This has been an ongoing topic in every thread titled Announcing Windows Insider (earlier Technical) Preview Build 9XXX and 1XXXX. In every new thread to announce a new build, this is one of the first "issues" our members post.

    My sincere recommendation to all complaining about this extra 10 to 20 seconds needed after an upgrade: opting out from Insider program might better suit you.

    Think it through: Those who installed the official release 10240 and have never been Insiders have only had one upgrade since that, during the last 11 months. Think if you had not made the mistake to try the Insider builds, you'd now have two or three minutes saved during this time and the life would be much easier

    Once every couple of days lately but that's not the point, seen some much more useless discussions. As magilla said, it's good if details like that are worst that can be found. I have my own pet peeves but that would be nit picking.
    I had a problem with some settings in Ease of Access not sticking but that got resolved in this last build before I could find answer.
