I need a good drive to put windows 7 on. Some thing with little space just for windows? I got about 60 bucks. Any ideas?

How will you deal with the WINSXS issue?

There are others like this that may upset your plans. Read about it at

I noticed this in Vista and it is in 7 too. This matters to those that use that OLD IDEA of where you put the OS in some small boot drive or partition. Seems old ideas won't work here.

This area is well worn but I wanted you to be in the know rather than be surprised later.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
