    I'm still running the upgrade install... feeling no need to do a clean install either.

    And you're probably right about the whole HW/SW issue. Kinda like back in Vista days. People complained about it left and right, saying it was garbage and hardly worked.... but mine worked just fine. So long as i had certain BIOS settings configured in a certain way, anyway. Think even if i tried to overclock a smidge, Vista would throw a fit in minutes.

    brand new build. with skylake. none of the old parts made it over. and I still get the random IE aka whatever name the browser is micro freezes. or the OS takes time to "think" windows 8.1 does not have any of these issues. I atleast thought some time went by these would be ironed out. I guess not.

    all hardware checks out. memtest overnight etc. maybe I should give some insider builds a try

    well... as i said in the post right above yours, it could just as easily be another one of those random hardware/software compatibility issues like i used to have with Vista. Having everything BIOS related set to basically default settings... everything ran fine. Overclock the CPU a TEENSY BIT, and it basically wouldn't even boot.

    And who even uses the built-in browser?

    I clicked on the Windows 10 update and discovered it wants to install it through windows update.. I haven't reinstalled Windows sense I installed Windows 8 when it was released. Do I need to do a reinstall? Or is it fine just updating from Windows update?

    Update via WU, then once activated, you can clean install

    I see. Then it will automatically update to Windows 10 when I install the Windows 8 disc? By recognizing my key code?

    I mean clean install 10, you can forget about 8 now, just upgrade from 8 to 10, make sure it's activated, and then you can clean install 10 without any product key from then onwards

    Calculator app got updated. It seems to load in a consistent manner now. Movies & TV app also got updated but I never used it so I can't say much. That app really needs the dark theme like music. Anyway, I use MPC so whatever.

    Yeah I think that's what they are shooting for the people that are holding back from upgrading because it is a hassle.

    Very many people do, me included. It's still the best. I did an upgrade over 8.1 using the Media tool on launch day and everything has gone smoothly. I have had no bugs and there's no need for a clean install.

    probably already posted but easy way to disable windows update is to turn off and disable the windows firewall in services

    i found out yesterday when some updates were failing and the microsoft fix was to turn the firewall back on
