Your copy of W10 is out of date and must be updated to continue to function.

I have decided to stay with what I have now. If that becomes an unworkable option in the future....hello linux.

I'm tired of dancing through MS's hoops and I don't like supporting them anyway.
I wonder what the percentages are here at Seti though. Those that took the plunge and those who did not.

Laptop running out of memory?
Forgive me if I am teaching you to suck eggs but when I got some s/h laptops to increase my crunching power, the first thing I did was increase the RAM to the max where the average cost was about £25 per RAM chip.

I rebooted my only Win-10 machine into Linux Mint and I think it will stay there.

Windows 10 snags 21% of the desktop market
Microsoft's latest operating system ends its last month as a free upgrade still way behind Windows 7.

Just finished watching it myself, and couldn't agree with you more. I'll also be checking out more of his stuff. Haven't looked yet, but noticed that this vid was released last November, I wonder if he's done any updates to it? Have to dig in some more and check it out.

Jerry (Barnacules) does a lot of videos, some serious like that, some very funny. There is a follow up one giving his opinion on why m$ went the route they have which is interesting. He apparently worked for m$ testing team for 15 years until they sacked everyone (He has a video on that). Running gag on the internet is to ask on livestreams or Twitter 'Really? you used to work for Microsoft?', because it comes up in so many livestreams, lmao.

Thanks for the video link Jason. I wish I had watched that before the end of July as it takes a lot of the fear out of Window$ 10. I passed on the free upgrades so I'll just muddle along with 8.1 for now.

To clarify, I have had zero issues with anything BOINC- or SETI- related. Only issue I can't seem to resolve is that where my DLink security camera software worked fine to a network mapped drive for storage on Win 7, on Win 10 it doesn't see the drives even though they are properly mapped. Joys of Windows peer to peer networking. I want my Lantastic back !! lol

I followed that video, then I was pointed to O&O Shutup 10. It has the ability to disable driver updates from M$.

Then you'll like GWX Control Panel.  See this earlier post, and scroll to the EDIT.  I've had it installed for about six months - works like a charm, and very low on resources.
