The 1st anniversary of Windows 10

It’s the 1st anniversary of Windows 10

How are you getting on with windows 10?

 

 

Here are a few of my observations:

  • Too many ads, you can’t even play solitaire now without getting bombarded with Microsoft Ads. When you are paying for a system such as Windows 10 you should NOT be bombarded with ads IMO.
  • Too memory hungry, constant hangs whilst windows swaps to disk swap file as memory is always full.
  • Start up time is longer than XP and 7.
  • Many more ‘program is not responding’ messages and then after several minutes the message disappears and the program continues, probably linked to my second point.
  • AVG and Windows 10 between them lock up the PC whilst any updates or scans are running. Doesn’t happen on 7 or XP.
  • I have had to disable active tiles to help speed up Win 10, and disable various other items or Windows 10 runs very slow even on my Quad Core Processor running at 3.0GHz on each core.
  • I still feel that Windows 7 is the best version of windows to date.

Please comment to add your findings.

WARNING – Domain Renewals

July 30, 2016 // Posted in General, Main (Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ) |  No Comments

WARNING! If you get an email about your Domain Renewal that looks something like this below, Ignore it. It Is a Scam. It has nothing to do with your domain expiring or the renewal of it but is a scam to get you to pay for SEO services that will never be provided. Only respond to domain renewal notices from your Domain Host.
These people monitor when domains are expiring and send this notice that looks like it is to do with your domain renewal in the hope that you fall for it and pay them your money.

regards
Steve
