    I was looking at the problem and realized I didn't really give trouble shooting steps. So not sure how I didn't answer your question, just Xmas time I guess. The Troubleshooter pointed me to changing...

    After installing Win10 several times on different machines I would have this to say: Any machine that runs Win 7 at any speed will run Win 10 slightly better. I don't think anyone needs to hugely...
