After installing Windows 10 a few months ago I noticed that my internet access took a real hit.

I turns out that Window set a default to use my PC as a file sharing server.

To change the default go to Settings -> Update & Security -> Windows Update -> Advanced Options and go to 'Choose how updates are delivered' then turn off the option.


I did this early last weekend and everything is clicking along at a good pace now.

I had all kinds of problem when I upgraded to Windows 10. Repeated installations seems to bring with them new and different problems. I think I tried to install it four of five times on both my Surface Pro and Desktop. Weird stuff like reverse video in Taskbar pop-up menus and things like that.

I finally fixed everything in Windows 10 by installing a MacBook Pro with El Capitan on the computer desk. Oddly enough everything just clicks along now…

Be mindful that when you do let a windows 10 update through it will sometimes flip the flag back. But all you need to do is turn it off again. An anoyance to be sure.

Another one that slows Windows 10 is Runtime Broker. Ctrl/Alt/del to get task manager, from task manager go down to runtime broker and click end task. Minimise task manager and every couple of hours bring it back up and end runtime broker again.
