I am now on Windows 10 and tonight this site seems really slow and unstable. Anyone else notice that?

    Hello, This is not something unusual, if sometimes this website is pretty slow, or even don't work, but it is worse if the problem is in your computer, because as we know, Windows is an open platform, and a lot of viruses can visit you if you don't have a shield for them, an antivirus. And more, your computer can be slower than usual if it has some junk files, that occupy computer memory. This is why I recommend you download best pc optimization software , and then your computer will work properly.

    Jimbo, you think this site is slow? The other day I was doing some research on Spencer rifle and looked at a very fine article on the American Rifleman website. My ad blocker nailed FORTY-TWO ads running at once. Wow!!!

    They say Windows 10 will run on 2 Gb of ram, but about any OS requires 2 Gb "just" to run...leaving nothing left over for programs and stuff. The biggest issue in my opinion is the fact that Windows 10 is constantly gathering information so they throw ads in your face, i have grown used to it and no longer care what they do, i have programs that keeps those ads off my screen anyway.
    Please share...I remember when the basic pop-up blocker worked, but programmers have apparently figured out a way around them and it's pissing me off!

    I upgraded from 8 to 10 without any problems whatsoever ... once I killed Cortana. For whatever reason Windows 10 will from time to time leave calculator and solitaire running in the background too but thankfully they're only grabbing a tiny bit of memory.

PC Please... my flesh and blood woman doesn't know that much about me; I've been with her for over a decade.

    I suggest disabling her from the control panel and checking your browser settings. If you haven't closed your browser window or restarted your pc in a while that can help.

    Though it reminds me of an old joke.
    A man wakes up with a huge hangover after getting blackout drunk the night before painfully opens his eyes, looks around - "phew! At least I'm home". On the nightstand he sees a glass of water, an aspirin and a note saying "Honey, breakfast is ready, I love you with all my heart - xoxo, your wife".

    Not understanding a thing, he walks to the kitchen and realizes that the house is sparkling clean. He sees his son in the living room and asks him about what had happened the night before. The son says:

    — Well, you came home as usual, blackout drunk, threw up in the corridor, peed all over the bathroom, gave mom a black eye and went to bed. Then, when she started to pull off your pants, you screamed:

    "Get away from me, b!tch, I'm married!"
    Disabling Cortana with the control panel WILL NOT solve anything. Check your task manager and you'll see the SOB is still lurking in the background and hogging a huge amount of RAM.

Getting rid of it was NOT easy. I had to hunt on line for instructions. Dumping it - truly getting rid of it! - requires getting into the registry and doing some complex editing. Not for the faint of heart. Why is Cortana so hard to kill? Even when "shut off" it's still sending information to Microsoft constantly about surfing habits, etc. What's Microsoft doing with it? Selling it of course! Jimbo, if you can get your computer up to at least 4 GB memory, that is a step in the right direction. MS says W10 will run on 2 GB but their idea of "running" is more like "crawling" in reality. Get someone who has some expertise to remove Cortana. Then keep Google's ad blocker running (sounds like you have already taken that step).
    I know. I am EXTREMELY careful in there. Jimbo, be careful about boosting to 8MB RAM. Make sure your computer can handle it. If the processor is not up to it, the board may overheat. You can go on line and check to see what the max advisable RAM is for your model computer. My laptop won't take anything more than 4MB and I'm doing fine with Windows 10 as long as the ad blocker is turned on. Made a big difference when I shut down Cortana!

    Honk. Be very very careful messing with your registry. One wrong typo and You can destroy your system and never recover it.

    Aaaaaaaannnd I'm staying with Apple. It is a bit cruder in some things but the recent free Yosemite upgrade works just fine. And If at&t doesn't get off their a$$ real soon and push 6.01 marshmellow to my Samsung s5, after their lollipop upgrade shut off my sd card with all my databases on it, my phone is very soon going to be an s6 on sprint. Hear me at&t.

    I have a HP that used to be a network computer. quad 2.67Ghz processor with 4GB ram which I may expand. I have a good video card as I have a flight simulator. Don't paly games. I also have a digital drive. So far everything is working fine. My IT guy said when you block the ad's the site designers deliberately make the site operate differently to discourage the blockers?? I don't know, Bing does a good job of 'controlling' the ads.

    My 7 Pro needed a 4.5.1. Framework for an older program and it would not download 4.5 or 4.6. I got 10 for less than the hours it would have taken to go back and repair a fault that was several years old. The IT guy said 10 is tricky to install and the computer has to be able to handle it otherwise, problems. Mine is working fine, a friend who did his own install has all kinds of problems.

    I agree 100%, Cortana is the one and only thing about Windows 10 that i cannot stand. And the more ram the better, 4 Gb is much better than 2 but i would suggest a minimum of 8 simply because nearly every website these days has pop ads, a lot of which are video ads and the extra ram is nice to have...along with a good processor to handle the multiple applications, ads seem to be the new trend. I wish they would fade out, like mullets.
