Feedback on Windows 10 Home (Off Topic)
« on: August 21, 2015, 06:20:43 AM »
I've had issues with this system since upgrading from Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 a few days ago.  No system or app crashes, just several random things either not working or stop responding every user session.  One or two third-party programs do not work properly after upgrade, but that is to be expected.

Issues appear to be with Windows itself.

Yes also nothing serious here but am seeing similar critical events with one or two 3rd. party software.
If it wasn't for the 'Reliability Monitor' I would not be aware of some of them.

Agreed.

Question is, would a clean install address these niggling issues?  How does my system compare to other users running an upgrade from Win 7 or 8?

Or, will Microsoft address these issues over time?  What has been the usual experience with this?  For example, if I click the Start button and select 'Shut down' or 'Restart' it always reports 'Windows was not properly shut down' in RM, but if I use 'Windows + X' and perform the same operation, no error is reported.  Is it a bug or an actual critical error?

All good questions.
I upgraded via Upgrade channel (MS Updates) from W8.1 64 Bit to W10 and immediately found my boot up time doubled.
I'm thinking/hoping things will square up as the idea of a wipe and Clean install of W10 doesn't excite me. :-\
In any case I won't/don't worry as the major upgrade is coming and I'll see where things stand after that. :)

CraigB,

All looks fine inside there.  No errors or unknown drivers found.  System currently running is a former enterprise model:  http://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?taskId=135&prodNameId=3352968&sp4ts.oid=3352968&ac.admitted=1440194620811.1123376534.199480143&swEnvOID=1093&action=listDriver&swLang=13&prodSeriesId=3352967&cc=us

It's old, but Win 7 would report, on average, one critical error a month.  Same system, different operating system, but this is an upgrade, not a clean install as Win 7 was.
