    As I no longer play in a brass band I like to listen frequently. I belong to one of the local leisure centres where I do a little exercise and swim. Writing odd routines for Excel and flying with FSX

    Retired over 10 years ago from radio communications as a supposed radio specialist ( its amazing what a lot of bluff can achieve!). No longer play trombone but like to listen to brass bands and sit too long with FSX going

    Windows 10 Will Be The LAST OS

    I am with gfd's comments. There seems to be a lot of speculation when what I, and I suspect lots of others, want is facts. Is Win10 better than 8, or 8.1? Does FSX, either DVD or Steam, function correctly, can I expect graphics issues similar to those I experienced going from 8 to 8.1. Having seemed to have got FSX stable I am hesitant to change.

  2. Thank you for your quick responses. I am exploring what starts up, what I really need and also trying Jim's idea of the resource monitor. Have noticed that Internet Explorer seems to be sat in a suspended state and then FSX crashed although at a different time. Went back to IE and closed it again, re-started FSX with resource manr on 2nd screen. no IE entries and had successful flight through 19:56. Will keep an eye on things and let you know.
  3. I normally close and open FSX in windowed mode so that I can move it to my main display. I run 2 screens and Windows 8.1 on a 3.9GHz dual core processor. This normally works fine with DX10 fixer from Steve. Recently an annoying thins happens at 19:56 most evening. FSX freezes momentarily and returns to a windowed mode with anything I had on the 2nd screen loaded on top of the cockpit display. Have tried to find something running in the background such as an auto up-date in another programme but no luck yet. Any ideas please? Alan

    Like wise, using DX10 was the only way I could get FSX to work, have now bought Steve's DX10 fixer and all seems fine
