Thanks Bob for your reply.
The install went so smooth and it works so well with 10 I just hate to remove it. I agree with you and will install Linux. I have a disk.

Their IT can load what they want because let's face it that there is that gift horse problem.

One of the security groups I had the pleasure of participating covered the easiest way to get into an organization is to give them free phones and computers. These would be pre-loaded with the spyware and more.

The fallout of that discussion was many IT groups tightened up security by clean installing new machines and factory resetting phones when they came in.
