Windows 10 has so many annoying intermittent issues that Win 7 never had.
- put to sleep, and it will hang indefinitely with the hard drive running. Have to reboot.
- wakes up from sleep and the network driver is completely missing. Not deactivated, but gone entirely. Have to reboot.
- sometimes it loses the ability to recognize USB devices. Even if I replug them, it won't see them. Have to reboot.

This was a clean install. My hardware is pretty standard. I don't have a lot of software other than games loaded.

There's some nasty malware that has been downloaded to certain computers from a particular website. It apparently does everything you described and more. I remember reading that the executable file was something like StarCitizen.exe.

Hahaha, awesome.

Btw, jd, most of those bugs you described have been in previous versions of Windows as well. They're not just 10 specific, they're Windows specific. Microsoft simply refuses to fix their shitty code. I've had Windows forget that I have a sound card installed since the days of Windows 98
