Everything was going great installing Windows 10 on my Toshiba Satellite P770 until I got a BSOD reporting a athwbx.sys SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION. Ugh.

It seems that the Qualcomm Atheros AR9002WB-1NG Wifi Network Adapter driver is too old / crapola.

I just left it disabled for the time being - I'm running directly off the RJ45 to my router in the meantime... so I'm not portable.

So far I like it... it's different for sure and Edge is now my fastest browser. Faster than Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

What do I do for activation? My laptop came with 8 preinstalled, then went to 8.1. Then when I tried to do the upgrade to 10 the install got screwed up and I had to do a clean install from a 10 iso I got from microsoft. At first it said it wasn't activated after I finished setup but then for about an hour it was. Now its back to wanting a key code. I downloaded a program to see what my code is but it said it couldn't activate it with that.

Am I going to have to do a reformat to 8 again and then 8.1 and then do the upgrade to 10 in order for this to be activated?? Also I can't find the 8 key code that was stored in the "My account" section on microsoft's website earlier last week from when I purchased another copy of 8 a year ago. So then what do I do?

I created a recovery drive and a repair disc this afternoon. I thought it was interesting the former HAS to be on a USB drive, but I've got plenty of unused smallish ones lying around so no biggie.

So I noticed Xbox DVR works with Windows 10, I have been trying to figure out if you can tell Cortana "Xbox Record that" of some variation of that to get the DVR to record the last 5 minutes.

Windows 10 doesn’t offer much privacy by default: Here’s how to fix it

Windows 10 shares a lot of personal data with Microsoft, but you can turn most of it off.


Windows 10, by default, has permission to report a huge amount of data back to Microsoft. By clicking through "Express Settings" during installation, you allow Windows 10 to gather up your contacts, calendar details, text and touch input, location data, and a whole lot more. The OS then sends it all back to Microsoft so that it can be used for personalisation and targeted ads.
This isn't entirely unusual: recent versions of Windows, unless you explicitly say otherwise, have reported some kind of data back to Microsoft. Windows 10 definitely goes one step (well, a few steps) further though, primarily thanks to Cortana (which ideally needs to be personalised/optimised based on your voice inputs, calendar, contacts, etc.) and other "cloudy" features that somewhat necessitate the collection and squirting of personal data back to Microsoft.
That isn't to say you should be happy about this state of affairs, however. If you'd like to retain most of your privacy and keep your personal data on your PC, Windows 10 can be configured in that way. Just be warned that there are quite a few toggles that need to be turned off, and you'll lose some functionality as well (Cortana won't work, for example).
Enlarge / The first page of settings to be customised. You can turn all of these off.

How to make Windows 10 respect your privacy

By far the easiest way to disable Windows 10's various data logging, personalisation, and telemetry functions is to turn them off during the upgrade/installation process. (If you've already installed Windows 10, skip ahead to the next section.)
On the installation screen where it wants you to press "Use Express settings," instead click the small "Customise settings" button. The first customisation page has settings for personalisation, targeted advertising, and location tracking. If you're trying to maximise your privacy, go ahead and disable everything on this first page.
Enlarge / Except for SmartScreen at the top, you can turn the rest of these off.

The second page has a somewhat useful option at the top, but the others—predictive Web browsing, connecting to open Wi-Fi hot spots, and Wi-Fi Sense—can be turned off.
Additionally, during the setup of Windows 10, another way of sharing less data with Microsoft is to create a local user account rather than log in with a Microsoft account. When prompted for your Microsoft account credentials, instead click "Create a new account" and then "Sign in without a Microsoft account" on the following page. It goes without saying, but this will prevent any of your settings/data from automatically propagating to any other Windows devices that you own.
Now go ahead and complete the installation; the next steps need to be done from within Windows 10.
Enlarge / The Privacy applet in Windows 10. You can probably turn all these off, too.

Head to the new Settings app and click the Privacy button. You can toggle all of these settings to "Off," though you may choose to keep SmartScreen Filter enabled. Most of these may already be disabled if you turned everything off during installation.
At the bottom of the Privacy applet, click Feedback. From here, you can set the Feedback frequency to "never," which prevents Windows 10 from reporting errors, diagnostics, and other telemetry that could help Microsoft improve performance and stability. You can shirk your civic duty and disable this, but don't be surprised if you experience a small pang of guilt by doing so.
Enlarge / How to disable Cortana in Windows 10
Now it's time to disable Cortana. Hit the Start button. Type a few letters and the Start screen will be replaced by a grey search window. Click the cog icon to reveal Cortana's settings pane (pictured right) and then triumphantly slay her by flipping the toggle to "Off." If you'd rather keep Cortana turned on but with some of her other abilities curtailed, they can be configured here as well.
That should be about it: you are now reporting very little data back to Microsoft.
The big question, of course, is whether the potential gain in privacy is outweighed by the loss in functionality. Disabling personalisation definitely makes sense from a privacy perspective, but it could significantly dent voice recognition accuracy and the usefulness of certain OS features like Cortana. On the other hand, there aren't many good reasons for keeping your advertising tracker ID turned on.

So far I'm enjoying the newer design of Windows 10 and such. Actually glad I chose to upgrade to this from 8.1.

Its a markedly different response from the release of 8. Hopefully PC sales see a boost.

Where I work and what I do, HOPEFULLY I can get some clients to go to Windows 10 (my boss is being hesitant about it) have a couple Win 8.1 machines around.

Unfortunately I can't go back to 8 because the recovery partition got taken out during the reformat. Microsoft also doesn't show the 8 copy I purchased from them back when it was first released.

Can I somehow get a copy of the 8 key from HP?

I can confirm my laptop is having issues... can't tell if it's wifi related, or if it's something else.

Waking laptop from sleep it is very sluggish in either the edge or chrome browser. I occasionally see it have no internet connection... but most of the time it's registering fine, it's just like I have a 56k or slower connection. Then after 1-3 minutes of slowness, it snaps in and starts working great.
