This is for Windows 10 x86 only and not for x64. Correct?


Edit: Nevermind. W10 x64 update is downloading right now.

Where is the recovery cd creator in Windows 10? I am having a hard time finding it.


edit: I found it after I found control panel.


I am not certain that Windows 10 is any better than Windows 8.1.

I'm enjoying just getting to know the new W10 OS.
And I also have W8.1 on another LT

Remember to make a system image beforehand in case you don't like the change or just change your mind :)

These scripts work as I've tested them personally.
I wouldn't recommend either of these two procedures to the average computer user. :)
If my mother can follow the steps then I'd say anybody could do it ;D

I still not dare to use Windows 10. Because all my friends said this new windows is little heavy for small pc, but the system and the new application in it so cool but I never dare to use it. So until I upgrading my PC, I will keep using windows 7 until then. But I was wondering, is AVAST compatible with this windows?

Windows 10 is lighter on system resources than Windows 7
If you look through this thread, you'll see were I upgraded an old computer.
It's running just fine on Windows 10.

When she upgraded did she select the right bits to save ?  There are 3 options available

Just installed Windows 10 an everything works apart from Avast.

Contacted helpdesk, they had a look at my PC and said that I should have prepared the PC before installing 10.

It appears I had some bits and pieces of Avast that should or shouldn't be there for Windows 10 - how the hell I was supposed to know this is beyond me, and if I wanted it fixed I had to go to second level support which I would have to pay for.

Avast didn't warn me that Windows 10 may be a problem. The only time I receive any communication from this company is when they want to renew my license.
How come every other software supplier has successfully updated their products to work with Windows 10 and Avast hasn't.

Needless to say as Avast don't appear to be a professional business, it's goodbye to Avast and hello to a different product.
