Did as suggested and now have a stick as well as a DVD. Used the DVD and the Clean Install went flawlessly. I am about 90% satisfied. The other 10% is in start-up. I suspect that there are background files that are loaded at start-up that, in most cases, are not needed. However, the names and acronyms I cannot recognize what they are for or do.
Is there anyplace that I can get a list of the ones to keep ENABLED or the ones to DISABLE.along with what they are for?
