Quote from: edkiefer on April 10, 2013, 07:59:50 AMare you running tests with all app shutdown, just windows running .
Nope, I am running the same startup software, except that BlueStacks Android Service-0.5GB memory usage.So I need -0.5GB for the result before windows update.----So yup, 2.0-0.5=1.5GB for the 1 week+5 days.1.9-0.5=1.4GB for restart, before windows update.And after windows update, it is been tested without the BlueStacks Android Service.So yup, I get a few MB less after windows update, it can be count as memory leak or human error.----Still higher than your Windows 7, will use some time to find out which is the memory killer. ;)----After a few restart of the services, and some Asus software.Yup, still the same, time to kill some process. ;D----I am back, 1.9GB with same software(now), compare to 2GB with same software(before killing the process). :)And yes, one of the bloatware software is the anti-virus. ;)Killing the software and services until leaving the services that need for basic and networking, I can get 1.1GB. ;DA restart of the computer giving me 1.4GB, and I shutdown and bootup, 1.3GB, before the anti-virus loading any database(yup, it delay the database loading, which it means don't scan the boot file when boot).
QuoteOT:I wonder when MS will fix that platform update they did for win7 and IE10 , seems it affected many users with various vid cards .
QuoteYou experience stability issues when you are running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 on a computer that has one or more Intel Atom processers.

Quote from: edkiefer on April 10, 2013, 06:58:29 PMI think they pushed it so IE10 would work in win7 . win8 comes out of box with IE 10 ??It now seems like they are just pushing it to be fixed on other dev's , makers of vid and software .You would think if they put it in windows update it be solid ,tested patch/update .
Quote from: edkiefer on April 11, 2013, 08:03:44 AMyes, I rarely use IE10 , only if FF has issue with pages displayed , which is rare for me .
QuoteFast startup is a setting that helps your PC start up faster after shutdown. Windows does this by saving system info to a file upon shutdown. When you start your PC again, Windows uses that system info to resume your PC instead of restarting it.Notesâ€¢The fast startup setting doesnâ€™t apply to Restart. You need to shut down and then start your PC again for fast startup to take effect.â€¢Fast startup is turned on by default in Windows.
Quote from: Support on April 23, 2013, 10:49:28 AMSo you're saying that when third-party applications invoke the ExitWindowsEx API, the shutdown doesn't utilize the fast startup mechanism?
