Damn. Yeah, I'm stil running windows 7. Hell, I just upgraded like 2 years ago from xp...why the hell do I need to upgrade again so soon. Keep getting the windows 10 window reminders but I'm waiting a few more months. No matter, just like with windows 8, wait a year or two and we will be onto windows 12

That's the thing about PC's. You can build an Exsanguination-Edge-level gaming box but you still end up booting into Windows flavors. Keeping a trust old Mac around is always a smart move. It's like the spare Subaru AWD wagon that will still get you to work when your Dodge Charger or Ram is having a Diva moment.

That damn thing pops up once a day on my desktop PC.

Debated disabling it, but why spend the extra time?  If I ever switch over, it'll be at the last possible opportunity, when the kinks are ironed out.

Let's be fair. The 'stuck in a Windows repair loop' is not new to Windows 10. And dare I even mention Windows ME?

enjoy the season.
chem!

thanks for the link ,i followed another link to this program which i think i will donate $5 and get the add free version as i just upgraded to win10. I kinda like 10 so far, of course i turn off as many of the privacy things i could find.

Here's the link to the privacy program for any interested. http://pxc-coding.com/downloads/donotspy10-donation/   i read up on it, seems a handy program. the free version has ads.

To no avail I give up.... after trying to get this back going I have just pulled the plug.  My FSX folder alone is 500gb so it will be a pain to get this reinstalled and running, but currently that is where I am at.

Right after I read this thread I restarted my computer and it became stuck on the "Restarting" window. I had to hold the power button down to turn it off and reboot.  :o

I had to recover his PC with my W10 recovery usb. No way to solve it as far as I could figure out. At least M$ got their recovery process sorted, was able to leave all his files in place although all apps were lost. So it was a matter of installing Steam again and pointing to his existing steam folder, and then to install a couple of other apps.

Could have been worse I guess... The thing is I do like W10, it is the best MS O/S so far. Some teething issues still around, it seems...
