Click Disk Cleanup

Clean

If you want to free GBs of space, you should note that you will not be able to get back to your old OS. Complete disk cleanup removes windows.old files too.

From the event viewer, I am only getting warnings and the following message:

Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

Still trying to diagnose.

Here is what I did and since the restart I have not received any warnings of display drivers:

Opened Regedit and added a new QWORD (64 Bit) Value in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\GraphicsDrivers

Named the new value as TdrDelay with a value of 8. This was recommended on Microsoft KB article for Windows 7. Restarted the system after this and seems to have worked. Going to monitor it for a while before calling it resolved.

Cheers,
Ardy

I've been getting several task manager errors since build 10166, many tasks have their XMLs corrupted or invalid. This happens with a fresh install as well.

Well, it hasn't affected usage of the PC so far based on my experience with about 3 builds. So not a problem as yet. Long term I'll have to see.

Best part is nobody seems to scan their event logs to see what the OS is up to So, nothing on the net as of now.

Have you found out a way to display auto drivers install in gpedit.msc or elsewhere.

Sorry, I didn't quite get this one. Do you mean automatic driver installation via Windows Updates?

I was just being lazy to do it myself. I guess I will wait for it to start by itself. BTW the logo on the task bar is missing now.

Guys
After an upgrade to Windows 10, Kaspersky Internet Security isn't working. Additionally there are many different applications which are incompatible with this version of Windows.

Hoping that the issues are fixed ASAP, which are the only glitches in this superb Windows experience.

That's right. For me too Kaspersky disappeared. But to my pleasant surprise, Windows defender came to rescue automatically. Its updated, system scanned and that is guarding my laptop. Check on notifications; you might find an action item regarding windows defender.

Yes Windows defender is up and running. But would like to have the Kaspersky back into action ASAP

can anyone point out bow to manually update the preinstalled OEM versions? Is it possible to perform a clean install on OEM systems without need of getting new license?

Just manually updated to 10. Took about 90 mins. Prima facie, looks good. Need to use it in order to comment on the difference with 8.

Manual update is easy. There is a link on the Microsoft website from which you can update your OEM to 10. CNET website has a user guide as well

Will this be on the subscription model after 1 year for people upgrading from Win 7?
