Windows 7: Microsoft to users: You'll download Windows 10, and you'll like it

I normally shut down every night. I have noticed that since I started hiding the W10 prep. updates, I no longer see the shield when updates are available. I have always had updates set for "check and let me choose...." option, except when MS changed it without my approval. I don't know if the lack of shield and the W10 updates are connected, but it seems so.

I leave my machines on 24 / 7 as they are doing scans malware/virus/defrag overnight. In the winter they also keep the room warmer. In the spring / summer when we have thunderstorms and it's hot I switch them off. When I fist saw the message to update to 10 I was going to shut down to avoid the patches and checked for updates and got the upgrade to 10. I ended up staying up till 2AM to remove the BS. The registry settings were over ridden but with the Group policy should not be. I wonder what magic combination M$ will come up with next.

Actually Indianatone, we are suppose to get thunderstorms this week. Comcast internet drives me up the wall sometimes. A lot of times I have internet disconnect issues with them. I am currently on a internet special with them that was extended tell sometime next year.

I care about Realtek Audio, but I'm open to a better suggestion.

Has realtek audio ever worked
I wouldn't know it has no apply button or save for that matter :/
All I care about if sounds works and realtek is so annoying if you unplug speaker the silly thing just makes you set it back up

Not to mention a new driver every week it seems which I guess I can't get too mad because I'm still on the original from the asus disk

Get a sound card and use its driver? Actually, that's what I did but only because the sound card provided noticeably better sound than the onboard sound on my computer. I had no complaints about Realtek itself.

It worked for me on three different computers. I don't recall having to set things back up after unplugging a speaker (then again, at my age, the only thing I retain well is water). I abandoned Realtek only because I installed a sound card with its own driver.

A sound card is something I will look into.
Suggestions on which one to get would be helpful.

In my opinion the sound difference between stock Windows sound and Realtek sound is big. Realtek sound better. Keep in mind this will very on the motherboard and the sound components used on the motherboard.
Some of today's higher end motherboard have some very good sound qualities.

I use the driver that came on the motherboard CD. Checking in Device Manger the driver is still up to date.
Because I don't update drivers just because their are new ones issued by Realtek I'm having no problems after taking care of the KB problem.

I use KLipsch-THX 2.1 on both of my systems. I really don't know what happens when one plugs and unplugs them. I just keep them plugged in except when I fiddling inside the tower and have to move the tower around.

Yep speakers make the most difference that I've ever noticed
Besides using a music output mode like dance.... is about as far as I have ever gone or really ever needed to go
I have no idea if Realtek is up to date I seriously doubt it
