    Re: Windows 10 upgrade ! I love it :)

    I've been having a pretty good time with Windows 10 actually. But there are a couple of things that are really beginning to irritate me.

    Every now and then I get asked how likely I am to recommend Windows 10 to others. I wish it would take a hint and sod off with that.

    Even worse... I opened up Calc and before it finished loading the app it asked me how I rate it... the calculator... the one that's been part of Windows forever... that's just a calculator. I was half expecting it to say "Leave a review to unlock 20 free calculations!"

    Finally, I usually press the Windows key and type in what I am looking for. It really aggravates me that it will often find folder names (or even worse, web based results) before it finds actual installed apps, an index of data that is probably considerably more static and reliable than either folder, files or web based stuff...

    It's odd I haven't experienced any of that (yet), the Windows store has been pretty inobtrusive and I have the calculator open most of the time, and I also access apps the same way as you and it's been very good at finding apps first.

    Might be some toggles in the settings somewhere that can resolve these.

    Re: Windows 10 upgrade ! I love it :)

    I believe that when you first install Windows 10 it asks you about feedback etc, might be related to this? I have never received any pop-ups asking me to rate applications or recommend Windows to a friend, and I have been on Windows 10 for a good few months now with usage probably every day. However, on first installation I basically opted out of all the "customer enhancement" options etc.

    Have a look at this page and see if changing some of the options make a difference - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/w...cs-privacy-faq

    I've found Windows 10 to be fairly good. Everything seems stable. Haven't had any issues or crashes. It did take a bit more time to customise than Windows 7 though - I spent a while fiddling with the menu to remove all the tiles in the right hand side, as well as change the task bar setup etc.
    Main - Intel Core i5 2300 @ 3.5GHz, 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM, Asus P8P67 Pro, Coolermaster iGreen 600w, GTX 480, Antec One Case

    Re: Windows 10 upgrade ! I love it :)

    Well that's promising, I'll have to have a proper look at the settings thanks. I can't recall being asking to opt in/out of anything when I upgraded Windows 7 a while back.

    It has something to do when you installed W10 !
    I don't get those pop ups

    That might be the problem, I certainly got several pages of opt-outs for all kinds of stuff when I upgraded, which I suspect they had to put in from negative feedback. you must have upgraded prior to those options being put in to the upgrade process.

    Running Windows 10 right from the release date. Had no major problems at all apart from some sound card driver compatibility which was fixed within a month after release. Absolutely love it by now.

    Re: Windows 10 upgrade ! I love it :)

    I,ve now upgraded 6 machines (mine & friends) and have to say had no problems. To be honest all had windows 7 and are fairly new machines (under 3 yrs old) so maybe that helped ?
    Have to say prefer win 7 but eventually will get use to win 10 as win 7 will be phased out in time.

    is everyone aware of windows 10 snooping via telemetrics? Quite a big concern for people before upgrading to Windows 10 and for good reason.

    Re: Windows 10 upgrade ! I love it :)

    I really like Windows 10 but it does have some issues.

    I updated on the same day it was released and while I liked the OS itself I had lots of issues resulting in me having to restart multiple times a day.

    My explorer.exe kept freezing and restarting did not fix.

    Did a clean install of windows 10 from a usb though and it has been great since, I have had similar issues with drivers like a lot of people and sound problems but fresh installs of the win 7 (no win 8 available) drivers available worked for the most part.

    I do know though that it is not everyones cup of tea, I upgraded my Dads PC and he hated it, so it is a good thing there is an option to reset.

    I would still recommend it though, but I would say do a fresh install rather than an upgrade as I know I am not the only one who has had issues that way.

    Re: Windows 10 upgrade ! I love it :)

    I would very much like to upgrade to Win 10 from 8.1 for the sake of change alone but the privacy concerns and the artificial limits of DX12 and what not is not a business model I am to willingly going to subscribe to

    Re: Windows 10 upgrade ! I love it :)

    Did the Windows 10 upgrade from 8.1 at the weekend.

    What I have found is that some programs load as fast as they did on 8.1 but sometimes others take a while to start. Anyone else found this?

    BTW I did the upgrade rather than a fresh install so maybe this could be a reason why?
