    I’m still on Win 10 ver 10240 as I haven’t received the Nov. update yet. HP ProBook 450G upgraded from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro on 8/4/15.
    I check the Reliability Monitor quite often to see what has D/Lded after bootup. For the last couple weeks, win 10 seems to be “Reconfiguring” everything
    on my laptop and also updating win 10 apps daily.
    Just curious if anyone else has noticed this since it only started happening a couple of weeks ago to this extent.
    Note: Today was 167 apps including an HP update ( other days are approx. the same number ). I’m only curious about all the Win 10 apps and drivers that are reconfiguring daily.

      I JUST received the original upgrade to Windows 10 for free message on my system yesterday…yes, yesterday. Who knows how many thousands and thousands of configurations are being “looked at” and jiggered to make everything compatible…and still failing early and often in my case.

      …or, you might have a loop bug.

      Dr. Strangelove has never been more applicable.

      Gosh FUN, now I don’t feel neglected by waiting for the Nov. update, LOL

      Hmm, I guess my laptop is special. All that reconfiguring loads the temp file with about 190 MB per day by itself. So I guess I will just have to run CCleaner every day.
      Something else that doesn’t thrill me with win 10.

      Well, my record is still intact, the offered upgrade seems to be performing well, except, the taskbar is [borked]. I unloaded ClassicShell and Stardock before the upgrade too. Most persistent problem is there is no context menu, just a grey column with a couple carots that only produce more blank grey menu. Back to the old drawing board I guess; literally.

    • #1540170

      So did you get off the update merry-go-round lumpy? After a painless loop back to Win Hate, I threw the tea leaves in the air again and this time I think it stuck. Too early to tell for certain but where I had only carots, I now have full content context menus. It failed a small test I tried where I play a game at a different resolution than the desktop is in and then exit the game and observe how well it recovers to the original resolution. It did ok except the taskbar collapsed down from two lines to one. Maybe a graphics update if there is one will solve that. Certainly not enough reason to send Win 10 back to remedial school for the 5th straight time, yet.
      I turned off all the nosey and sharing bandwidth settings and let Classic Shnell! update and keep on trucking, so I may not notice much difference, tiles and apps are almost universally a waste of space for me.

      I’m still on 10240, no upgrade to the new build yet. Actually the original upgrade to win 10, 10240 was pretty painless other than some drivers that HP was slow to deliver and MS updated some of them.
      Unfortunately I am just not impressed with win 10 over win 7 as an OS. Especially with all the privacy erosion that I had to track down and turn off. I realize that win 10 is new and I’m sure there will be lots of changes but I just don’t really care and I no longer trust MS to do the right thing even though it will have to be faced after 2020 on my other computers.

      Use the Media Creation Tool to perform the upgrade to Version 1511. Use the Download tool now button on this page:

      Thanks Jerry, but I think I’ll just wait and see how all this plays out. Not much sense in being in a hurry to discover new problems as described in a number of posts ( although I might be one of the lucky ones ), LOL.

      Ya, I’m no hurry either, whatever version I have is good now, I have to admit it seems every bit as fast as my XP systems and I might…MIGHT even warm to a few apps now that they and the desktop behave about 6 BILLION percent better. It certainly confirms how ridiculously lobotomized Windows 8 is for non-touch environments.

    • #1540503

      I never liked the looks of win 8 so I never went there.

        Very wise! I had a refurb that came with 8 and tried it early in VM, so the VM is next if it ever gets around to offering it.

        I thought people knew by now that touch is neither a prerequisite nor is it needed either.

        Indeed, I think that about sums up what Microsoft should have kept in mind instead of throwing the bias needle hard to starboard. Did 8 statistically ever pass Vista or is it forever the stinkeroo of all time?

    • #1540505

      Well I think 8.1 is miles better than 7. And I have never ever found that it needed a touch environment. I thought people knew by now that touch is neither a prerequisite nor is it needed either. YMMV

      I miss the start screen in 10, but I can live with that. I’m just upgrading my ‘test’ PC with the November update. We’ll see what happens with that.

      Some stats on OS market share…

      https://www.netmarketshare.com/operating-system-market-share.aspx?qprid=10&qpcustomd=0

      Interesting that in spite of the free upgrade offer from Windows 7 and 8 to Windows 10 as well as being on most new PCs, the much maligned Windows XP has almost the same market share as Windows 10. Still haven’t seen any of the predicted disaster reports of running XP on the internet.

      I know it is not exactly the same, certainly, but… for someone who enjoyed the Start screen of 8.1, the Start menu of Win10 can be used ‘Full Screen’. Maybe, you would like that approach.

      And once Full Screen can have it w/ the contextual menu and Tiles showing OR just Tiles. This is controlled w/ the Hamburger @ the top left.

      Thanks Drew but I already have found that. What I’m referring to is the start menu, which is similar to Win 7’s. In 8 clicking the down arrow gets something where everything’s in view and I can find what I want very quickly. It’s less functional in 10 (just like 7) and I have to open directories to see things. I want the 8 type full menu, not the 7 type one. However 10’s is better than 7’s as it’s a bigger font and the directories stay open. I was always drifting off the directory in 7 and losing the open bit.
      Of course, this is just my opinion.

      Yes, not sure why some think Touch is required. 8.1 does fine w/out Touch.

      Almost the same response..that’s not the way us haters are thinking at all, at least not me…its more like why is Winhate so painfully biased to touch when it should have been neutral or even biased to remote input…because there was an agenda, that’s why. Stop hitting the reset button 60 million times and just figure out why 8 was such a stinker and let it go.

      …don’t look now but the VM just decided it could go to 10 so by the end of today I could be Hateless!! Truth be told, I rarely brought the VM up so it may have been ready before now.

      XP is still my main online machine, I’m on a different XP system here right now, I use another one and go to some “rough” places if you catch my drift just to test things but Chrome seems to be impregnable, NOT that I click indiscriminately when those “things” pop up, but the Chrome task manager just digs a grave for everything nasty…so far. Hell, those virus wannabees can’t even freeze the screen on me anymore. I do think I’d be a bit lost with XP and WITHOUT Chrome; I.E. would certainly be vastly inadequate at least.

      I would love to work that way but the W10 on my test machine is not letting me ‘personalize’. I haven’t booted the Activated version for week, just don’t want to lose my good W7 machine to test out W10. If in a few years I build a new box and move my W7U to it maybe I will do more. Too bad I could not set that installation up to be a VM:(

      sorry for the confusion.
      I would like to run my activated version of W10 on the same computer as a VM, I do not want to have to reboot every time I want to play w/W20. I had hoped I could use my second computer but I guess I missed the deadline to make it a legit install.

        If you have a qualifying machine the upgrade to Win10 is free until July 2016. All you need do is the upgrade and it should be legit.

          I have no interest in upgrading at this time. I may use a spare W7 license to do so in the future but that result in the home version whereas the machine I do not want to work with has the TP pro version. Am I correct about the virtual machine assessment?

            I was talking about the “second machine” you mentioned. As far as VM goes, if you are a member of the insider program try a clean install. If it activates fine. If not just blow away the VM. Nothing lost but a little install time.
