"there's nothing there."

that's for damn sure. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: The last time I made the mistake of going out to MS forums, I saw a thread that went something like this:

User: Hi, I just updated to the latest Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 3. I'm now idling at 25% cpu, and it's killing my batter life.
MS rep: You need to scan your Surface for viruses. Also, make sure you have the latest drivers from the manufacturer.
User: Are you an idiot? I scanned the machine for viruses, and MS is the maker.
MS rep: nonplussed and doesn't miss a beat - you may need to do a clean re-install.

Don't even get me started on SO. Ask a question and get it instantly closed. I miss usenet. You had real smart people that had clues. I think some of them are hear on CP.
