What went crazy fast?
The download of the newest CCleaner took about 10 secs through IE. It usually takes > a minute. Could be a coincidence I suppose. I'll try some other Updates to confirm. ps: 2 updated fast & 2 updated not fast at all. Coincidence I guess. Rebooting seems to take a God-awful amount of time.

I have just upgraded to windows 10 on one of the [ 5 ] computers, and it makes me remember how lost I was when I bought my first laptop 2 years ago that had windows 8. At least then, I only had a 13 year old girl showing me how to use it,, now it's a 6 year old and a 15 year old that are saying ,,, why you not know how to do that.
Then also yesterday the light on the Samsung 10 tablet went dull , and I had to tell her that when its bright it's too bright for my eyes.

By the way,,, how do you increase the brightness. She did it so quick I don't know how she did it. Too ashamed to ask a 15 yo .

I did both without issue.
Installed Firefox and Chrome without issue and yahoo toolbar works fine.
I wonder why you can't?
Time to call the fifteen year old?

I'm holding out mainly because I don't want to deal with potential driver issues and I have my Windows 7 system tweaked just the way I like it. Definitely curious how Windows 10 would perform on my hardware though.

Well after looking at the Yahoo toolbar reviews, there are hundreds of other users that are having the same problem as me, so Therapist I dont believe you have the Yahoo toolbar that has all the buttons , like bookmarks, YouTube, CNN, and all those others

I have done a uninstall on one of the computers and gone back to windows 8.1,,,,, Although I like the extra features of w 10 it's a bloody hassle if I dont have easy assess to the hundreds of [ porn ] sites I have marked in the yahoo bookmarks .
Even in the Widows 10 Forums it appears there are lots of issues being bought up that are not solved. W 10 looks like a work in progress and there will be more upgrades for it that w 8. I'll probably uninstall 10 and reinstall w 8.1 on this computer also.

OK , tell me I dont know diddly shit, but at least I'll admit I'm a computer dummy.

Win10 did an update today and after the reboot, the Chrome icon went blank, and I got error messages every way I tried to open it. I had to uninstall/reinstall and it's working fine now. Odd.
