    Thanks for the info. So, the delay can be either of those I mentioned.
    I also just walk away and let it update when those delays occur.
    Not a big deal.

    I've heard about that update delay. Can you elaborate on what that delay is? Is it the delay that occurs after you've selected the updates and chosen to download and install them? Or is it...

    Thanks.

    I have done that, but often I STILL am not sure what to do.
    Also, I am starting to really resent the time necessary for safe hex.

    Anyway, the other day, all of a sudden, he found W10 on his machine. He is used to W7. He...

    Sometimes I've had success just going into DOS (command prompt) and using the del command.

    eg: say file JOE located in folder MOVE

    cmd
    cd \move
