got a new computer (windows 10) a month or so ago. Lately the internet has been very slow at our farm we have 15 meg download service but when I check the speed it is like .3 meg down or so. It is slow on other devices too so I tried shutting down the new windows 10 computer and got all the internet speed back. Wonder where to start looking on this windows 10 machine to see what is taking up all my dsl speed.
Hmmmmmmmm - - - man - - - - some over 20 years ago I managed to get myself a virus on WinSE.
Thought that there must be a better option than continuing with M$ baloney.
Today - - - I decline to accept M$ security opportunities (and their desire to own MY computer!)
(There is software that isn't available on Linux but boy there's not that much of it.
It is very easy to have a computer where you upgrade on your schedule (I check weekly and that process likely takes less than 10 minutes).)
