    I have the early Windows 10 which has been no problem at all. By mistake I hit the update button for the latest edition. It did not install properly and has given me no end of grief. Two days of Microsoft Help assistance has now reinstalled the older version Hooray!! The Tech guy recommended avoiding the updates for the time being until they resolve the issues. So if you are thinking about it be very careful.

    Slowed mine right down on boot up, will uninstall latest AU update. Typical MS, get it running OK then update it to boot slower than Win 98.:mad:

    On the other hand, I updated mine to the latest edition and had no issues.

    My problem is that Microsoft Edge has completely closed down since the latest Windows update. :( Even Cortana has buggered off to warmer climes. It seems that it's a problem Windows cant fix for now.

    Edge and Cortana disappearing - surely that's an advantage, not a problem, isn't it? :D
    I updated my desktop and laptop with no problems. Looked at Jill's desktop and it had already been updated earlier - so smooth we hadn't realised it was a big update :)

    The only problem really Graham, is that document and picture searching is much harder without Edge on 10. Plus, I cant copy or even highlight any saved pictures from 'my pictures' without opening them in paint.

    I've done the updates and the only thing I've noticed since is occasionally a black screen flashes on and off. Done malware/virus checks which don't show anything untoward. Any ideas?

    I lost the Windows start button and all that went with it. Looks like a pot luck situation.

    In general I don't use Paint, My Pictures or any of the other defaults, I always use my own folder structure so that I can store things where they should be and find them in future. I suppose that comes of being trained to do it 40 odd years ago :)

    Edge is the worst browser ever! I strongly recommend you try something different like Google Chrome. (make sure you download it from the official Google download site)

    More likely can people afford not to buy Apple, the longevity equals value for money. in our house every mac we ever bought still runs, two are 8 years old. A Macbook and and iMac. We have an iPad1 in use every day. Expensive to buy, but quality always is. You do get the odd problem but mostly they just work. The macbook I'm typing this was bought late 2014, it's always on and has been rebooted just 3 or 4 times in it's life. I've rebooted windows laptops more than 4 times in a lunch hour. :)

    I updated to OS Sierra yesterday. Clicked update, left it alone for 20 minutes and it's working perfectly. Won't need rebooting again for months, probably until the next major OS X update. :whistle:

    The best thing about it is that I now have Siri on my Mac (y):D

    Yes, I updated this week to Sierra. Quick and no issues. I didn't enable Siri though.
