    But the junk that came with Windows 10 is the problem..

    I had to spend an evening to 'hack' it into not downloading useless crap (like updates) and using all my bandwidth.
    Then had to spend quite a few more hours removing all the other crap because it's a PC, not a phone. All those phone apps, and xbox apps are on most of the time.

    Win7 is annoying because it takes a while to install everything I need. Win 10 is worse, because I have to spend even more time removing heaps upon heaps of crap from it.

    "Oh, you're mid game, here's a full screen pop-up to tell you that java is trying to update, we at Microsoft is sure that this is exactly the user experience our customers want. And don't worry, even though you know quite a lot about PCs, you'll never find the way to 'fix' our hard work by yourself"

    And then the anniversary update comes along and puts it all back.

    A year down the line and I've still got excessively long boot times on both my Desktop and Laptop, whereas Win8 booted in 30 seconds max.

    I loathe Windows 10.

    There's also the Tron Script, and one other PowerShell script I can't seem to find at the moment that help...
