    How would you rate Windows 7

    I tried the Windows10 update..Don't like the fact that I can't have a standalone version, without going out and buying it. Except for the start menu in Wiin10, Win8 in almost the same. I went went back to Window8.1, ran the GWX_control_panel.exe to get rid of the "Get Windows10 icon" from...

    computers & cars

    My first computer was a XT that was a 8 megahertz cpu, with a 20-meg FM hard-drive. Now I run 2 towers. My better is a i5 quad-core with 16 gigs ram, 7870 chipset videocard. My first car was a 1963 Chevy Canso, with a 194 six-cylinder engine. ....now I'm rebuilding a car I bought last year...

    the frickin' GWXUX...

    If you already have the "Get Windows 10" icon in you're system tray... download and run "GWX_control_panel.exe". Worked great for me.

    the frickin' GWXUX...

    I was thinking it too. Just a bit annoying seeing it in the system tray until then,,,,,,

    the frickin' GWXUX...

    Ok... I ran both those .bat's in that zip file. I still get the GWXUX after several reboots. It's not a big deal. Just click on "close program" takes care of it. Just a bit annoyed with that dumb icon in my system-tray.

    the frickin' GWXUX...

    I have windows 8.1 and am quite happy with it. Don't want to upgrade to the "free" Windows 10. But getting a bit po'd about the GWXUX cropping up on every re-start. (no hurry to get win10). Don't give me some crazy amount of steps to get rid of it. Is their a REG to just kill it...??? (or...

    That thinking isn't all bad. I went from Windows-7-pro to the NEW free Windows 10. Don't like that I can't do a format and install under that umbrella. Went back to a Windows 8.1 disk. Actually win8.1 has some customisable features that win10 took away. Heck... I paid 257.00 for the oem...

    vlc in Win10, after some time...

    When I am watching a tv series off my hard-drive... after about 15 or so episodes... vlc starts to act funny... though it may be Windows. I have to manually un-click the watched episode, manually click on the next episode, then right-click and click on play. Plus the spacebar does not...

    How would you rate Windows 7

    OK... I'm still a Win7 nut. I actually ran an official oem of Win8.1, didn't like it.... tried the alpha AND beta version of Win10... still don't like it. Microsoft has offered me like many, a free version of Windows10. Makes you wonder................. Even when they screwed up...

    NEWS Windows 10: A New Generation of Windows

    Ok... I've been with Windows since 3.1. XP was pretty good, but Win7 just rocks. Micky is bad, not to give it a service-pack-2. I had Win8.1 on a laptop, and tried Win10 beta on my tower. I can't say that I love it...unless you like your laptop screen shaking everytime you tap it. ...and...
