  • Replied in suggestion
    I will keep that in mind when I make the change.
  • You got that right Austinian. The latest Computer Power User Magazine has some good reviews on Skylake CPU's and MOBO's. They focus on the gamers, which I am not, but generally good technical ...
  • Thanks mark but I have far too many programs on the current Win 10 to do a clean install, though it is an interesting option.
  • That seems to be the majority of internet opinions, including MS.
  • Prior install of Win 7 was a full retail version into a home built. For older OS versions I have changed MOBOs and sucessfully did the "call MS" to get the computer registered again. Really cloudy ...
  • The Win 7 install was done with a full retail install on a home built. Thanks for the link, I will follow it. The Win 10 Pro was done with an ISO from the MS website.
  • It is not clear how to buy just a new license. I have seen prices from $99 to over $1,200. At $99 I might do it but for $1,200, FOGET IT.
  • It was the free upgrade over a Win 7 Ultimate OS. I do have the product key (thanks AIDA64) that was automatically installed when I did the upgrade.

  • In Win 10 go to Settings/Update & Security/Go back to Windows 7.
  • You are probably right but these are the trackers while I am viewing your post. Screen grab of Blur blocking
  • Since I had my ID stolen last year (cards opened, state and fed tax forms filed) when out and about I never use my credit card, only cash. Clearing up my ID theft mess taught me much of what to be ...
  • I have 3 USB3 to SATA docks. One of these is a Startech which also docks IDE drives. They now have a later version of the same docking station. I have experienced no problems with either SATA or ...
  • No, always use a fresh installer downloaded from the Mozilla website.
  • So far the only disadvantage I see is that Roboform is not compatible with Cyberfox.
  • I am a subscribed Premium User. If I have a question on any of my masked email addresses or masked credit cards they respond very promptly and are very helpful. I can even mask my telephone number ...
  • It works. Now, what can be the difference?
  • I will try it and report.
