Seriously though, if MS ever put McAfee in their update, I would just uninstall Windows 10.

Yeah, I hope they put a Kayak and Amazon app bundled in.

Why do you want an amazon app?
Amazon in the browser is already perfect. I don't understand why people want an app for everything.

Same. I've only kept win10 because i was able to disable AV in the registry. Otherwise, i'd have gone back to win7.

Let's not forget Windows 10 is a unified OS. Xbox runs Win 10, Their phones and Surfaces run Win 10, thier 3rd party tablets run Win 10, heck even ATMs run it.

You can always disable Automatic updates or make your own update sever. Provided you didn't Gimp yourself with the "home" version aka Non-Pro.

That's them, couldn't for the life of me remember. By chance do you know if they work with Windows 10?

Remember finding that when trying to enable Crossfire on my motherboard way back in the day when some boards would support SLI out the box, but not Crossfire.

Every OS from MS gets a new version. Like RSAT it normally comes out a a little while after the main OS.

IMHO it is the best way to do it, and if it works better than any third party tools I have tried and gives you the highest level of customisation.

If you have a Pro version of Windows, you can do it all in Hyper-V which is a lot easier than dual booting. I would recommend doing this from a clean install of Windows.

It used to be, I would do a fresh Windows install to get rid of the extra bloatware that OEM PC makers put on their computers. Now... it's friggin Microsoft that is doing it directly.

Grrr...

Say what you will about Apple, at least they don't put useless crap on their computers for the extra money.

Well, Intel owns McAfee, and we all know how cozy they got with Microsoft over the years, so don't rule it out.

It's funny because they did something similar with the forthcoming Windows Server 2016. The licensing will now be per core instead of per socket.

http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/12/windows-server-2016-moving-to-per-core-not-per-socket-licensing/


Can you imagine, Windows 10 for the mainstream platform up to 4 cores with HT - "free" with ads and bloatware; Windows 10 for the X99 platform and hexa, octa and decacore goodness, $x per extra core + ads and bloatware.

I hope I'm not giving them any ideas.
