Thanks to Humbert, Shadow97 and scarface.I have to agree with Scarface. I don't recall seeing the link. Please resend.Did you disable TPM and secure boot? Also, did you remove the unwanted bloat M$ installs? I think this is the best approach. For those who want any of that, it's easily available on the Windows Store.Scarface: With respect to the bugs you reported, I haven't run into any yet. Despite that, your post doesn't surprise me at all. New stuff is ALWAYS buggy. I still believe it's way too early to go full steam with W11. Much more testing and bug fixing need to be done.

Quote from: humbert on April 20, 2022, 03:28 AMHow do you download from MEGA? I opened a non-incognito version of Iron Browser (Chrome clone without tracking) and it says "download complete". The file is nowhere to be found.I should mention MEGA has very slow download speeds. Maybe it's because I'm not paying.

Maybe it's because I'm not paying.When we say slow, how slow are you referring to?I used to get faster back in the days on Mega, maxing out my connection. But currently getting 5.0MB/s +-0.1Generally speaking I peak 13.0MB/s.My understanding is that it downloads it to your cache first and decrypts, then triggers a local download from your own cache that is instantly completed. They do it to avoid being sued for storing copyrighted materials if i recall correctly.I'm a firefox user.
Quote from: humbert on April 23, 2022, 04:02 AMI didn't measure the MEGA download speed, but I do recall that each 700 MB took 3-4 minutes. MEGA's software will not allow you to use IDM. I have Google Fiber with gives me 1gbps up and down. If there had been no throttling and IDM would have taken over the download, we'd be talking maybe 15 seconds. I use both Firefox and the Iron browser. This is a carbon copy of Google Chrome without the tracking. There are some sites that prefer Firefox and others that prefer Iron (or Chrome). MEGA is a good example. I couldn't download with Firefox, and with Iron only with the incognito mode disabled. In both cases I did not install their addon. I'm assuming this is what MEGA wants you to do.
Quote from: humbert on May 03, 2022, 02:39 AMHas anyone actually did a full-fledged upgrade to Windows 11, or are we all still in the testing stage? I haven't upgraded because as of this writing there's still not enough support. If there's a program knows as "Windows 11 Privacy" (or similar) I've yet to see it. As I said before, on VirtualBox it runs great and even boots up almost immediately.As is typical of M$, they've already said that in order to upgrade to Alder Lake (Intel's latest as of this writing) you must use W11. This is, of course, barring some 3rd party drivers that can take full advantage of Alder Lake on W10 or less.
Quote from: Vasudev on May 03, 2022, 05:18 PMYes, I used my W10 regedits on Win 11 and couple of new things specific to Win 11.For ADL or newer Ryzen's you need Win 11 to take full advantage.
