Thanks, Geoff.  I turned off the spyware (bloatware?) when I first loaded Win 10.  Cortana was the first to go.....I asked her if she was Italian and she didn't answer.  The nerve.  :)

I’m a Windows person but Win10 is often a pain.

Gamers also hate a lot of the bloat ware and crazy notification settings.

You need to create a restore point first. I didn’t following one guy on YouTube and my restart doesn’t work properly now but I’m happy about everything else I turned off. I’ve managed a work around for restart too.


A friend sent me this link.

“The God folder is nuts. 

Put a new folder on your desktop and rename it to this:

Copy and paste the whole line starting with E and ending with}




It will turn blue and when you open it you will have one click access to everything in Win 10.”

It’s very cool!

Hope it’s helpful.
