    I have upgraded several computers at the compound to Win 10 with no issues in over a year - YMMV
    Thanks. I'll consider the rollback to Win 7 Pro 64-bit when I have an extra $170 laying around.

    What anti-virus is installed? I've seen Symantec.cloud (endpoint protection) crush a relatively new Windows 10 laptop with 8GB RAM
    Listen to me now, and believe me later: it doesn't matter how much you pump up those muscles, as long as you reach the full pumptential.

    It's not 'roids but thanks for noticing...

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
