    Yep, that's it. And the add is somewhat creepy.... specially because I can't seem to get rid of it.

    It seems uninstalling KB3035583 gets rid of it, at least for the time being.

    Yeah, that was pretty bad on Microsoft's part to not announce or say anything about it. It looks like malware on first glance.

    I read up a bit on it and apparently, people who accept and reserve it will get Windows 10 a few days earlier than July 29th. Most likely to relieve stress off the servers once the flood gates open on day one.

    Haven't touched 10 since February's 9xxx beta build, but I read it's coming along nicely. Of course, it still pays to patiently wait a few months to see if it plays nicely with all the legacy software you use.

    Seriously.... I was particularly worried because a few years ago I got actual malware that looked like that (it was passing for a microsoft update rather than a new windows though).

    Anyways, what would get me to consider getting it would be improved performance for my laptop.... Any chance of windows 10 doing that? Supposedly 8 did that but with the supposed increased performance you also got windows 8..... My laptop works mostly fine so far but I wouldn't mind getting it to fine if windows 10 works well enough.

    Re: Troubleshooting and Tech Support

    You're probably better off looking at installing an SSD if you don't already have one. Or reformatting your drive if you feel like it's become sluggish over the years of use. These two things will give you the biggest perceivable difference.

    I mean, sure the underlying coding maybe more efficient with each new OS and there will be "an improvement in performance" but it'll be subjective at best. The keyword here is perceivable. That moment you can feel something is different without having to measure it. You have to remember that a new OS isn't so much about performance as it's about new features, stability, and security.

    I got a Kernel Security Check Failure today, I read that it happens on Windows 801 and Windows 10, but I am still on Windows 8, so it's most likely a virus, right?

    Yup, it may be due to a virus or faulty drivers, memory modules or hard disk. Can you download and run BlueScreenView (x64 version if your OS is 64 bit)? It'll give you a list of dmp files created after the crashes on your system, right click on the most recent one and choose "Properties". It'll open a new window which tells you the driver that caused the crash (Caused By Driver), the driver name may give us a clue.

    I got this, it's storport.sys apparently.

    Re: Troubleshooting and Tech Support

    It seems the error has been caused by the storage drivers. You can run a chkdsk on your drives to see if there're errors in the file system, you can temporarily disconnect external storage devices to check if they cause the problem, you can try installing the latest storage drivers for your motherboard and of course you can run a virus scan with, for example, MBAM Free, just in case.

    Yeah, seems so. See this article for an explanation, more features usually require more resources.
