What's the activation "grace" period for Windows 10? If it's 30 days like previous Windows' then why are you activating it while stress testing and the like? I'm yet to activate Windows 7 and only have 9 days left out of 30 for my sandbox crash-n-burn install. Will probably reinstall it for another 30 days.

Any idea what SVLoadSense is and why does it run at startup? It has something to do with the Realtek drivers Installed.

Check the task scheduler library.

Well when you upgrade free from windows 10 you have no choice, it activates straight away, but yes i should have just stayed on windows 7 until i know board is stable.

You should have called back when the guy told you to buy new keys. Speaking to a different person sometimes makes all the difference in the world.
