Not to derail this thread, but Locate32 is as good or better than Everything, imo.

Appreciate knowing about those search tools but... unfortunately, as much as i want to avoid using shareware names here... i hum... use Outlook, which, afaik, are not indexed by those freeware programs you talk about. Hence, the need of Windows Search.

Considering dual-booting with Lubuntu or MX-15...

I use the startup manager offered under the Tools section of CCleaner, which I find pretty easy to use.

Um-hum!

Just did a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit.
Not an upgrade from Win 7 but complete, fresh override and... after 24 hours of OS updating, drivers installed etc., have come to the conclusion that it is just as good as Windows 7 for start up/shutdown times.

What may have made it different with past try, not sure.
Conflict of software, trojans, overwriting over Window 7? Who knows!

So, for now, i'm a happy Windows 7 64bit user.
Finally!

Doesn't mean i won't try dual bootin' wtih MX-15 ...

Did i say that?!

Well..., if i do get fed up with Win 10, i won't hesitate to go back to Win 7.

Btw, although Win 10 didn't want to give me "permission" to resize partition, did manage to do it with a software program and dual boot now with MX-15. Time settings change on Win 10 after reboot but that is kind of "normal". Otherwise both are doing fine so far!
