"Risky" setup manned by safe user = safe setup for that user. :D Very nice system slimming. Beginners should not try this at home. :cool:
I need to slim everything I can. My laptop is 6 years old and SSD is the only thing keeping it still kickin'. Core2Duo and 2GB of DDR2 RAM isn't sufficient nowadays...:oops:

Slowdowns and errors in loading webpages was caused by Firewall module in ESET Internet Security 10 Beta.
Changed to ESET NOD32 Antivirus 10 Beta build 10.0.169.0
No problems so far. Impact on the system > very light

Kept Zemana AntiMalware as a second opinion

After some time testing my system speed I am back to Windows 7 Professional. Several reasons :

  • Incompatibility of my integrated graphics with Windows 10. Needed to use some third party fix for being able to bypass WDDM
  • Real feel that my system is more responsive
  • No Avast freezing problems and improper disablement of the Windows Defender in Windows 10
  • Proper driver installation of my AHCI bus which made +70MB boost in read/write performance of my SSD
  • Personal feeling of having more control over the OS
If I had newer laptop it would work fine with Windows 10, probably, but since Intel decided to leave us without the proper drivers for Intel GMA 4500 MHD and a 1/3 of the chipset, I had to make this move. I probably won't come back to Windows 10 until I buy a new laptop.

Seems that Anniversary Update have brought more problems than it actually fixed o_O
Pre Anniversary update for me.Has to be an ASUS problem or a Windows 10 problem with some Driver/hardware on ASUS as I have updated some much older PC's and have not had one problem.
I have not been able to narrow it down but knock on wood 7 has been stable.

My friend has configuration with an ASUS mobo which worked perfectly before AU. But after , some driver signing problems couldn't make his memory controller to speed up.. Tried different and older drivers but unsuccessfully.
Seems that Microsoft is not spending enough time to test Windows 10 on wider hardware

I think if your system works perfectly with 8.1 it would work probably even better with 10, but every system is different...
