    Windows 1909 sluggish although all resource usage low ???

    I have pretty much the same - I have a Dell E6540 with the Intel 4600 and AMD 8790M along with the AMD Control Center to select high performance or power saving. The only setting I've played around with was the graphics application setting. I have a couple of games that I manually selected high...

    Windows 1909 sluggish although all resource usage low ???

    I had something similar to your issue. I used system restore and selected a restore point about a week earlier. Seems to have fixed what ever was messed up.

    Windows 10 2004 - Microsoft removed the defer feature update setting

    Link Wonder how long before they modify GP so you can't change it? Just more beta testing for MS.

    Why does Doom Eternal suck?

    LOL there is no way this old fart can play like that even at a lower difficulty. I think I'll fire up Serious Sam 2 or 3 which reminds me more of the original Doom.

    Linux Mint 18.3 to 19.x upgrade

    Thanks for the response. It could be the old laptop. It's a Lenovo T60. I'm going to try the new version 20 when it comes out on a fresh SSD since it takes only a minute to replace the hard drive.

    Linux Mint 18.3 to 19.x upgrade

    I still use windows 7/10 but gave Linux Mint a try a few years ago with version 18.x on a spare laptop. After upgrading from 18.3 to 19.x, I noticed that version 19 seems slower than my old 18.3, especially it's noticeable during booting. So my question: should I have performed a clean install...

    It's a bumpy road for version 2004 rollout

    Same here. In fact, I've waited as long as 6 months before I do a major update. I have my system setup for a delay of 365 days, and 30 days for quality updates.

    Far from Windows 10, which OS is for gaming?

    I think that Linux is not there yet for your "AAA" gaming. I think you are stuck with windows 10. I would look at your hardware. A decent video card with 32 gigs of ram should work just fine. You can limit some of the crap with 10 using ShutUp10. I'm not sure how windows 10 LTSC version would...

    More Audio issues on a fresh Win 10 installation- help!

    No, take vick1000 advice - you need to use GP (group policy) to disable the driver updates. See the previous thread that you started where I gave you that link on how to disable driver updates. The 365 days is for a new OS version only, and the 30 days are for security updates only. I have my...

    More Audio issues on a fresh Win 10 installation- help!

    What I would try next: get a Linux image and boot off the thumb drive. It won't install anything or change your system, but it will allow you to look at Linux to see now it works. From there I would play some music files or video files to see if it works under Linux. If it does, then that rules...

    More Audio issues on a fresh Win 10 installation- help!

This time though, instead of letting Windows search for it automatically, select Browse my computer for driver software. Then select Let me...

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    I would not use any free AV app. They are garbage. Malwarebytes free is fine, and you probably don't need Superantispyware. You can better control the spyware stuff in your browser. Use Brave browser or add-ons like: Ublock Origin and Privacy Badger.

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    I agree. I would not install any of your AV stuff. Windows 10 already comes with a decent one which will keep your protected. In fact, I would uninstall your AV app and see if it fixes the problem. Another question: is your AV the free version or paid?
