  • If you have a retail version of Win 7 and upgrade to W10 do you get a retail license with Win 10, or is it locked to that specific computer. What I thinking is upgrade to Win 10, get the license, ...

  • Been using it for a long time. Performance has greatly improved. Uses very little CPU. It's rated very well: https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/windows-7/
  • The only update that will try to give you Win10 is KB3035583, therefore it's the only one you really need to un-install, or hide so it does not get installed.
  • Will it accept the OEM key that came with the laptop?
  • I received a couple of calls last month, but they said they were Windows support and never said they were from Microsoft. I played along for a bit before calling them scammers, at which point they ...
  • I don't really have a strategy. I'm still happily using the 450D (XSi), which is now an 8 year old model or 6 generations. If I was a heavy user and had money to burn I would have upgraded long ago. ...
  • The T_i series is refreshed about once a year. The T_s is not officially a new series yet. See here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Canon_EOS_digital_cameras The chart is ordered from high ...
  • I had the same issue about 8 months ago. One or 2 failed attempts at installing Win10.  I mentioned here in one of the threads and was told that the reason that it failed was because I had not ...
  • Looks like it's no longer included in the box. You can get it here, under drivers and downloads. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/cameras/dslr/eos-80d You will need ...
  • Personally, I would not disable System Restore, Tweak #3 .  If an update screws up you can revert to previous state in about 5-10 minutes.  It can also potentially be used to undo viruses and malware.
  • The main update to avoid is KB3035583 . There are other patches that check to see if your computer is ready for Win10, but this is the one that pops up an offer to update and could even download ...
  • Replied in Why partition?
    That might true if you only have on disk! Partitioning keeps the OS separate from the data, But you have 2 disks, SSD + HDD (hard disk drive). This gives you the SSD for the OS and programs, and ...
  • You will need offline backups if you get hit with RansomWare that encrypts your hard drives as it will search out and encrypt all your hard drives, including connected drives that have your backups.
  • The qty of images (70G) should not make a difference as the viewer only needs to load the image you are about to look at. Can you provide some info about your computer (age, CPU, qty of RAM)? What ...
  • That's twice in 2 weeks. They must be working overtime. Same spiel as before. I asked him how he knows it's my computer. He says it's my ID, but couldn't tell my my IP address (off course not). The ...
  • I also got a call from someone the other day saying my computer was infected and generating errors. I knew it was a scam but played along to see how they would try to convince me. The guy had me ...
