    I've done two of our computers so far and it has been flawless. I know that isn't super helpful.

    Have you tried updating the driver for the wifi adapter? I would try that first.

    I'm guessing that you'll have to chase Dell for a driver. They tend to be teh suck in offering new drivers for older computers.

    Finally upgraded to Windows 10 and have not had the best experience, so far.

    Microsoft Edge sucks more than IE 11. It constantly misses my mouse clicks or it lags behind pretty badly while creating tabs and other things. It also doesn't use the favourites folder anymore?

    The biggest issue has been constant BSODs. EVERYTIME that I try to copy a bunch of large files to my network storage, the video card driver (or something related to it) crashes and then the computer will BSOD.

    You didn't get the memo like 13 Internet Explorer versions ago? Chrome and never once thought it would be a good idea to open whatever that IE is in W10.

    That said, apart from the initial flaw with the start bar not working and the virus software interfering with it, it's been stable. I had to do some registry edits and work-arounds for the anti-virus stuff to get it off my computer, which is not acceptable in this day and age.

    Can't comment about Edge since I use Chrome.
