But... but.... I thought it was supposed to eat your first born and publish your identity and credit card number online before self immolating using your GPU as the ignition source?

Yep, reading this forums I'm not surprised you've got that impression :P ..... But now seriously, I've been using for a few months now, and it is great. The performance I get is the same as with Windows 8 and 7, no big changes ;)

 

Cheers!

I think he means the keylogger Microsoft built into the technical previews... I installed the preview as well, but I refrain from doing any kind of "login" activity that would involve typing a password using Windows 10 until the RTM version is installed and the keylogger gone.

 

Nevertheless, I'm glad you're enjoying it! Waiting to install my copy on a my work-only computer tomorrow! (sticking to win7 for my gaming desktop)

:rolleyes: Don't worry, I always wear my tinfoil hat when I use my pc. That way I have nothing to worry about.

The "keylogger" remains unless you turn it off.

Hmm... wow. Thanks for the link; very surprising how much usage info is sent through Microsoft.

 

I could care less about them seeing who I have on Facebook, but I'm more interested in disabling that "share your keystrokes with Microsoft to help improve products and services." Hopefully after release some experts will find a way around it.

 

Else next time I make an FSX / P3D addon purchase, I'll be using my iPad to punch in credit card numbers or log into PayPal :P

You cannot disable it:

Also, if you try to disable it via the Group Policy Editor, it just automatically turns it back on UNLESS you're using W10 Enterprise.

MS has released W10 standalone ISOs, for people who want to clean install: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Thanks for that! I am 50% downloading the Win10.iso file now. I have seven PCs to update, and can't see wasting bandwidth to d/l seven times! :shok:

 

This way I can "upgrade" totally at my convenience, and try one at a time starting with my laptop.

Well, 

 

not my gaming PC, but my ASUS laptop with 8.1 was just upgraded to 10 Pro, and all went smooth and clear.

 

All installed application running just fine - mostly networking and security stuff used at the office :-)

 

Looking fwd to see how it goes with my home PC, and Prepar3dv2, Aerowinx PSX ( Java-based ) and IL2 Battle of Stalingrad tonight ;-)

 

Really like the new feel of Win10, with it's redesigned interface - looks great!

So a free OS with a built in keylogger and bandwidth stealing torrent client, Mmm I might just stick with Win7 a while longer.

Bill, careful. I'm sorry but I don't know if you need to first upgrade to "activate" your W7/8.1 key into a W10 key, I haven't tried out this utility yet.

 

 

Thanks Diego - but it doesnt say which version of windows it is - Pro ?

If you download the tool you can install both Home or Pro, 32 or 64 bit. It gives you the option to create either.

Thanks figured it out after downloading tool - should be good to go - fresh install at a later date - no need at the moment

I apologize for bringing this up again, but now that the official version of Win 10 is out, can anyone confirm that they removed the keystroke logger?

Diego should I load this over the very last final pushed build - would this update windows 10 to the latest and greatest without a fresh rebuild - any advantage or leave it alone until I do a fresh format install on my system - thanks

I would always do a clean install. What do you have right now? Are you on the Insider Program?
