    When I did this last one, CCleaner completely survived the upgrade from 7 to 10-1511. So far I've found nothing other then gadgets and Win 7 MS games missing. Though I have no clue why MS removes...
  6. One ended up being a clean install

    Except that I still don't know if it will run 1511. However, there could have been something, drivers perhaps, that was not 1511 compatible, that would now be gone.
