My old Win7 was beyond doing it's job well so I saved the data on an external drive and scrapped it about 3 weeks ago. I have been fighting my 7 year old Win8.1,turns out the hard drive has some issue that won't allow the printer driver to function any more so as of 2 days ago the Win10 avoidance came to an end .Now I have to learn to live in that world. At a glance it may not be horrible.
Searcy, thank you for the earlier post regarding the MSE, I had no idea it existed. That alone is enough reason to keep updates current. I am so sick of antivirus companies continually nagging and never sure what to buy or need.
