I think my problems were from the free upgrade from Windows 7. A clean install seems like a better idea and I think it's faster than my old system.

I did a clean install of 10 on my desktop and although it's an older machine it's been fast and awesome.

@townie, thank you, much appreciated  :)

It's a bit of a pain but a clean install is worth it.

I forgot a few things (like my PST file - all of your Outlook email) but Windows.old was a blessing.

IIRC, I remember having some issue trying to activate, I even think I messaged you regarding it, the old tried and true methods are no longer applicable and the new methods are a PITA.

You've helped me plenty, thanks again.

I bought the Windows 10 key Pro from Kinguin for ~$33.00 USD and downloaded the .iso form Microsoft.  When I installed it I entered the key when prompted and it was activated. Easy money when you activate at installation.

I'm Now On A Dual Boot System :) (Older PC)
Win 98 And Win XP, Just Kidding Sev7n And Ten.
Also Created System Image (Win7) Using Acronis True Image 2017.

By Way Which Worked, Kind Of lol
Cause When I Tried It Out, It Didn't Create The Boot Files.

So I Used CMD To Repair The Boot.
Using The bootrec Commands :D

Paid £0 For Ten Created Image Using "Rufus"
It's Only Home, Who Needs Pro lol

I Use It For Testing Out Software e.t.c.
But Still Can't Do Without Seve7n.

Still Waiting On Getting New PC Back, Or New New PC.
If You Get What I Mean :)

As kali would say, " it's bootiful! "

Everything you could ever possibly want in a Flat-Out Gorgeous Tower: 16 GB RAM and a Three Year Warranty!
You didn't mention the Maker of your Motherboard (I prefer either ASRock or MSI but that's me).

(Last April, I thought I was in Heaven with: 4GB RAM, 3 Bays, Burner but without 3.5" Floppy Drive...as far as I can tell, my ThinkCentre Tower's unique which came with Win 7 Pro already installed (which is never going to be upgraded to anything; too many horror stories re: 8 and 10) to which I added: Malwarebytes Professional (Licensed until The End of Time), SuperAntiSpyware (Annual Renewal req'd, Bugger!), ATF-Cleaner and Avast! (which has been a bane since I installed it because of PC Performance Issues all of which are caused by Avast!) but as much of a Bitch as it is, it's still better than Evira.  Total Cost: $500 CDN)

I didn't think I'd like Windows 10 but I won't be going back. The horror stories are just that, stories. It's the best Windows operating system so far.

I have the free versions of MBAM and SAS, don't see a need for the Pro versions.

All I use for AV is Windows Defender. Haven't got any malware that those 3 couldn't handle so far and I install cracked video games and download movies.

We have approx. 10,000 PCs here at my work place, most run 7 but probably 25% of them are still on XP. The thoughts are that they may be able to eventually phase out PCs and use tablets only but ATT a tablet won't replace a PC.
I have a bit of a time now even with 7, and XP is just awful. I liked 10 from the time I installed the Technical Preview.

As for security, I only use the stock Defender, nothing else.
