    That's why how to turn off ads on Win 10 articles are all over the net. We'll see how long that lasts before Microsoft won't let us turn the ads off.............

    Same for me i got no problem at all so far.The only thing I can talk about a fault about Window 10 is that it does not recognize older games bought on the net

    Yeah, that’s one of the worst things about Microsoft. Every time they roll out a new OS, a lot of your old programs are no longer compatible.

    It wasn't as bad until Win10 came out, now with every upgrade some third party software no longer works or has to be reinstalled.

    I have a lot of small games that I bought on Bigfish website but old games do not work anymore they changed their procedure I could not put my games in a folder or copy it to a hard drive.
    I stopped my subscription because I have lots of games on my screen.

    Just sayin...most of those games will probably work on Win 10.
    You just need to know how.
    Many times all you need to do is right-click the install file, go to Compatibility and change it to whatever is a more appropriate mode. Many times that is all you need to do.
    If that doesn't work, or it does weird things, research a little on the net and someone has probably made a modified .exe file that will work.
    One of my most favorite games of all time - Red Alert. Works in WinXP mode with a modified ,exe file flawlessly.

    Yes.
    Pretty much everything works in Windows XP compatability mode, if it is going to work at all.

    Interesting.

    Other than the tracking, I've not had a problem with Windows 10. It has never crashed on Me and I leave it up and running for months at a time.

    The disk utilization issue did occur a few years back, but it turned out to be the antivirus suite I was using. I switched to Webroot and haven't had a problem since.
