    Presumably only covers home OS not professional as it would cause havoc otherwise. I don't use windows in my personal life, only for business.

    I'd love to know just what is in W10 that they are giving away billions of $$$$$$$$. Surely US government spooks behind it.

    Anyway, I'm shocked to admit, after zapping the first install I let it install again and find it first class. So updated wife's PC as well.

    OK a few niggles, sometimes I can't save a file where I as administrator want to but I can live with it assuming it's a useful tightening up of security.

    Boot time and shutdown time is in another league.

    Creeping Fascism, that's what it is.

    after a bad experience with a previous PC that fortunately I booked online from Curry's and managed to return just within the refusal period, I'm resisting all efforts and using Chrome on this new one.

    Thanks for the warning - I will up the vigilance
