    I always make my Due Dilligence before I connect up my new machines. Always check that I have everything of drivers, software and that the OS is up to date. I also download and save old drivers/software as backup solutions. Of course, I have more than one computer and can do it on my own way. My comment was meant vs. skipping Windoze Pro.

    Ah, so it is the same thing then...you make yours...we make them for our customers that want to save the time and effort.

    The conversation about whether to get Pro is a different subject.

    Yees, Sir I know. But this is a importent subject who should be high lighted. You never know what will hit you in your face when you know Windoze now is a service and not a normal OS.

    This... is intense. Just got notice that HIDevolution shipped my laptop and it should arrive on Friday. Is there a recommended dummy-proof walkthrough for cleaning up a fresh machine before we start using it?

    Since you are an EVOC Gaming Team Member, I can login to your laptop and do my magic which consists of the following (just tag me when you get the laptop and I'll PM you):

    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
    8- Turning off smart multi-homed DNS name resolution in Windows which may lead to DNS Leakage when using a VPN (must have Windows 10 Pro for disabling it as it can only be disabled via the Group Policy Editor)

    That's a very generous offer and I'll happily take you up on it! Will tag you once I get the machine home. Thanks so much, there's a wealth of knowledge in that link, I'm a lot more comfortable with giving you teamviewer (or similar) than doing all those myself hah!

    Update: The package has arrived! Expected delivery date was Thursday/Friday and then somehow on Tuesday morning, BOOM, delivered.

    Upon further reflection, it doesn't appear that editing the previous post bumps the thread and probably doesn't give an alert to those tagged.

    Bumping and tagging: @Phoenix @Donald@HIDevolution

    Editing to clarify the Donald tag was in regards to the packaging

    It looks like HID does a good job with things in there!

    Really glad for my USA - dwelling friends who can take full advantage of their services!
