    you got it bro, let me know when you get it so I can show you the magic. You will be stunned by what is possible ;)

    Here is what I will do:

    1- Uninstallation of all the Windows Store Garbage Apps
    2- Removing all Windows 10 Privacy Invasion stuff like Telemetry, sending your keystrokes to Microsoft, automatically installing suggested apps in the background, allowing Microsoft to conduct experiments on your laptop, disabling automatic driver updates through Windows updates, disabling Windows 10 ads, disabling cortana, etc.
    3- Removal of nVIDIA and Intel Telemetry
    4- Adjusting a lot of options in PC Settings like disabling Windows Tablet Mode (you have a laptop not a tablet), disabling suggestions appearing in the start menu, disabling automatically connecting to Paid WiFi Hotspots, disabling Game DVR which reduced performance in games, and a lot more.
    5- Replacing Cortana with a much better search tool that finds results instantly
    6- Restoring the classic Windows 7 Calculator and Windows Photo Viewer
    7- Restoring the Classic Windows 7 Start Menu

    @Phoenix Thanks much. I emailed @Donald@HIDevolution today about an EVOC P870KM1 instead of the GT73VR 425 in my last post. Man, I'm flip flopping like I'm HGTV. Seems like a common problem I've found on the forum though. Truthfully I like the design of the cool running MSI, but the CPU, 3k screen, and vapor chambered 1080 on the EVOC has swayed me that direction.

    Gotta pull the trigger on Monday, maybe Donald can help me decide.

    @Phoenix - Out of curiosity, is this something that you do manually or is it scripted? My developer inner-child loves automating things :)
