The afor mentioned laptop came with vista and I downgraded it to XP. Being stubborn I stayed with XP on my main machine for a long time before upgrading to windows 7. This time however I am in agreement with Steve gibson from security now and will only change to windows 10 kicking and screaming. either that or move to Linux. Or will I eat my words. lol.
