    Sloooow response, page loading

    I bought a new laptop back in June loaded with Windows 8.1. I noticed that a few websites visited often were slow to load, especially Lansing Heritage. I had no problems going back to my older Windows 7 laptop. I thought I would wait it out for Win 10 before worrying too much about it. Sorry to say nothing has changed under Win 10 and now I find slowdowns in another Win 7 unit not on my home network. It is to the point I have to start the Lansing Heritage page request, then go to something else for a while, then check back. Ouch.

    Anyone share this problem (excepting Mac users)??

    My desktop has been on Win10 since the 07-30. This site loads just fine for me. I bounced around on several pages just to check and came back to this page and the load time is just about a second, about the same as usual.

    Why yes! I would recommend Win10 to a friend!

    All the best,
    Barry.

    (and quad core @ 4.4 ghz) on Comcast.

    except when you get off forum and go to settings page, then ZZZZ...

    Something lurking in my set up, likely. Arggh. I do find that the auto uploads with Win 10 can slow down browsing but it was still slow even when updated. Tried to use the Edge browser new with Win 10 but it wouldn't locate the Auraliti music streamer I have on the network. Went over to Internet Explorer and there it was. Same ole teething problems with Microsoft stuff.

    You guys do know that Win10 is a spyware/peer-to-peerware mess, right?



    Windows 10: An operating system that gathers data on everything you do

    By Mark Blackwood
    10 August 2015


    Microsoft launched the latest version of its Windows operating system (OS) on July 29, promoting the event as the largest software update ever. Unlike previous releases, the new version has been offered by Microsoft to all domestic users as a free upgrade. Over 14 million users are reported to have downloaded and installed it within the first 24 hours of its release.


    One question that remains unanswered, however, is: out of the 14 million who upgraded in the first 24 hours, how many had the time to read and study the 45 page privacy policy and service agreement in the End User License Agreement (EULA) prior to installation?


    Following the customary corporate fanfare that generally accompanies a Windows OS release, reports rapidly emerged about marked changes to the company’s privacy policy and service agreement. The new agreement, by default, effectively gives permission for Microsoft to monitor users’ activities via the use of keylogger type spyware.


    Spyware is software that enables the information about a computer and the activities that take place on it to be transmitted covertly from their hard drive to another computer. A keylogger is a type of spyware or surveillance software created to log every keystroke made on the infected machine.

    A keylogger like the one in Windows 10 can record instant messages, emails, search requests, credit card details, the contents of documents and spreadsheets, or anything else that is typed on a keyboard. The log file created by the keylogger can then be sent to the designated receiver, in this case Microsoft.


    According to the Guardian, the default settings of Windows 10 also permit Microsoft to control a user’s bandwidth in order to “upload data to other computers running the operating system, share Wi-Fi passwords with online friends and remove the ability to opt out of security updates.”



    The main reason Microsoft wants to monitor its users en masse is to monetize information about them and their habits. With 90 percent of the world’s laptops and PCs running a Windows operating system, the company’s monopoly position gives it a huge potential for harvesting data on its customers and emulate the likes of Google and Apple.


    According to Heini Järvinen, Community and Communications Manager at European Digital Rights, “Microsoft basically grants itself very broad rights to collect everything you do, say and write with and on your devices in order to sell more targeted advertising or to sell your data to third parties. The company appears to be granting itself the right to share your data either with your consent ‘or as necessary’.”


    Many users, when installing Windows 10, will not know how to configure it to prevent the automatic installation of the new default software. Moreover, the vast majority of PC and laptop users download and install software without fully reading the EULA.


    Web developer Jonathan Porta described the tactics used by Microsoft during the installation process of its OS, “Everything about this screen is urging me to just accept the default configuration and get on with life. … With all of these settings on these two screens enabled I might as well relocate my computer to Microsoft headquarters and have the entire company look over my shoulder.”

    (and I was in IT from '75 to '02 and dealt too much with MS)

    go to "resources monitor" and see what is hogging CPU cycles , prolly some dumb service.

    Yeah but it is convenient. I loaded it on one laptop so far and turned off all the spyware during the install. At least I think I did. The NSA probably has its own layer in there that can't be turned off.

    World Socialists have a beef with Microsoft, too? Didn't know.

    Honestly, I have never read through a license agreement software in my life. Chances are very good that I have abused such privileges granted to me in the license more than the other way around.

    I keep the Task Manager going fairly often to see what's hogging the system. Had to rid every automated process since they all want to use my computer at the same time I do. That still hasn't pointed out the culprit in my setup.

    I'd put some tape (not Scotch) across the camera lens, at least.

    Not sure if they have a beef but at least they're reporting on it. I don't see how your second remark justifies in any way MS doing this, but now you know. They've just gotten more blatant about it.

    Not trying to justify anybody's actions. Just admitting I don't read these types of use/license agreements.
