Windows 10

Yesterday, I started my upgrade to Windows 10.

My laptop overheated and shut down.

I retried.

My laptop overheated and shut down.

On the third try I put my laptop on stilts so the vents weren't blocked and set two cold packs on it.

The third try worked. It took about three hours to fully update.

I'm enjoying Windows 10 so far. The interface is clean and stylish. It doesn't seem to move slower and Cortana is a blast to play with.

What about you? Are you upgrading? Assuming you have a Windows machine, of course.

Personally, i'm suspecting a DNS problem - i not only get it when going to the comments (occasionally) but i also get it when i click my MotA bookmark.

I'm using Opera 12.16 on 64-bit Windows 10 - was W7 when this started, and this is the only site i get this happening when i try to access it, and it's intermittent ... and always to the same site.

Dunno about the redirect, but a heads-up on installing 10 on any machine with a wi-fi card: Win10 has a "Wi-fi Share" program built in, and is (apparently) set to share with any of your contacts connected to your Windows account. It's relatively easy to disable if you know about it, but being as it's not exactly something people would normally think about, I thought I'd give a warning out.

I'm enjoying Win10 myself, just thought it was something people should be informed about.

I've signed up of course, not my go yet though. I'll wait before updating my main computer until a couple of weeks have passed, but I will update by laptop just to try it!

I updated but quite a few of my programs weren't wanting to play nice with it, (Including my Antivirus and Firewall) so I rolled back to 8.1 until my other programs update then I'll try it again.

The only programs that have failed to play nice with my Insider Preview W10 builds were ThreatFire (behaviour-based malware protection) and the ZoneAlarm and Comodo firewalls.  

Haven't checked ZA and Comodo since the official rollout; i need to do that.  Don't trust the Windows FIrewall.

I use AVG and not only did Win10 and AVG not even recognize each other but I couldn't even access my AVG account with Edge and Firefox basically told me to go screw myself to boot. Hence the waiting for a couple weeks.

I'm using AVG Free on W10 Home (or whatever it's called now) 64-bit.

The only problem i had with AVG was that i after each of the first two preview builds i installed, i had to do a repair install to get it going again.

No problem with Firefox (though Opera 12.16 is my primary browser as long as it keeps working).

Also i haven't even looked at Edge (or Cortana) and i have no intention to get involved with OneDrive, so i don't know if they're working, and don't care.

And i just tried Comodo and ZoneAlarm and it sai "Nope" to both.

ZoneAlarm has got a beta of ZoneAlarm 2016 that's supposed to work - download it at http://tinyurl.com/qd3aapa

I'm gonna give it a try.  I prefer Comodo, but they apparently haven't dedigitated yet.

I've updated and, so far, only a few odd bugs. Like Edge refuses to close at times. Nothing serious. I rather like it thus far.
