    Different strokes for different folks. I use Dropbox to sync between computers and backup. I use OneDrive because Windows 10 comes with it. I used Google Docs for sharing stuff from my phone.

    I do not have any of the registry entries mentioned in the article. Is that because I uninstalled and then blocked KB 3035583, the one that installs GWX? I am running Win7 Pro on a Dell laptop.

    Thanks for the tip about KB 3035583! Sure enough, it was in the list of updates. I deselected it and hid it. Glad I caught it before it installed.

    You don't have to have an @yahoo.com address to be in a Yahoo group, although if you do you get additional functionality. Yahoo groups can store files, such as photos and documents.
