    I think I'll delete the two folders, and if they come back, I'll follow some of the recommendations in the link you sent.

    I actually used the Media Creation Tool to update my laptop (keeping the DVD as a backup). So far, I don't like the way W10 behaves on the laptop (I'll address my...

    Jerry, thanks for the info. Done!

    cmptrgy, yep, manual update. I'll know when an update is available by looking at the Mozilla plugincheck site.

    Again, thank you all for your input.

    Thanks for the inputs, RG and Calimanco.

    Success!

    The Get Windows 10 icon suddenly appeared in the System Tray. No, I don't know what I did to make this happen, but there it was when I booted today.

    Sudo, are you talking about the task bar icon that I don't have?

    Thank you all for your replies.

    I have not gotten the system tray icon yet. But I think Sudo's reply might explain why. I have installed IE 11 (just last night), and all the updates from Windows...

    access-mdb,

    I guess I don't know what you mean by "third party apps". Are you saying that win 8.1 includes all the (Microsoft) apps you'll ever need or want? I doubt that.

    Lumpy, I also think 8 GB should be the baseline, but if $$$ comes into play, how much would Win 7 and Win 10 suffer with 6 GB?

    Thanks, Lumpy. That looks like a nice machine, something I might get for myself, but it's a bit too expensive (and a bit of overkill) for her. For example, she doesn't need an i7 processor or a...
