    Don't worry young grasshopper, I will take care of you.

    I am working on a pre cleaned win 10 recovery/install usb for cf 19 mk6.

    It will need to be activated with your win key from the bottom of the cf 19.

    32gb usb stick

    go PM for more details

    Yes O&O can be run from usb.
    All these tweaks were done before I connected to the WWW.
    I even installed Comodo AV from usb stick.

    WOW! First thoughts....

    [​IMG]

    Perhaps I will steer clear now. I have MX16 and Zorin in the mix... I think I'll stay with W7 until I die... or it does....

    Maybe Linux in between.... If I live that long!

    Once you "adjust/tweak" Win 10 it is not bad. It is quicker using win 10 compared to win 7 on a CF19.
    It is much more modern. It is also designed for touchscreens.
    There is a learning curve and the privacy issues need to be dealt with.
    Not sure the mapping app is enough for me, but that is another story.
    I will keep win 10 on the CF 19mk 6

    Shawn... I plan on trying Windows 10 on the new CF-31 Mk2 I am building. The only way I have to install Windows 10 at this point is to install W7 first... And then do the upgrade. After reading this thread and finding out that M$ has been installing spy stuff on my W7... I figured I might as well upgrade and then just take care of it all with W10.

    You said you do all your tweaks before you hit the www... Do you have a W10 install disk?

    That is true. Don't you just love MS. There is a list of 'kb's/updates" to stay away from. They are doing this because they are not getting enough users on W10. MS has spent billions on these "farms" to store all this info they are stealing from W7 and W10 users. Thinking about what they are doing to the PC really ticks me off. :mad::mad::mad:

    Thus why I'm running Peppermint 8 on my CF-19Mk4 and dual boot on my desktop.

    Bidding on 2 core i3 CF-31's and if I get one, it will run Peppermint also. The hell with Microsoft.

    I think I may just scrap Windows and try Linux for a while. I guess the only way I will find out if it will work for what I need is if I try! ;)

    The only issues I foresee is logging into my work VPN via Citrix...

    Rick,
    I use MX-16 every day logging in to Citrix receiver to go to my company site.
    It's seemless and now the newer distributions don't need any tweaks for me.
    Other than changing your permissions for security in your browser it's very doable.

    Okay... I've been doing more reading and now I am even more confused. Some people say that you should keep a list of updates that you DO NOT download to begin with. Some say that W10 will sometimes sneak these in and install them anyway... Then you have to uninstall them.

    Other say to go ahead and install everything and then use one of the programs listed here to remove, and keep removed, the unwanted programs. This is probably what I will do. I want/need to do a few machines with W10. Plus I'd like to explore the new OS... Safely, of course.

    Thoughts?
