    Okay. Thank you! One of those updates wanted me to install the Windows Insider Preview. So, I did. But, I don't want to keep 10 until the finished and fully baked version gets here. So, thankfully, there was an option to go back to the previous OS.

    There is if you have the set of Restore discs that you made when you originally got your computer. That is why I always make a disk image of a installed OS about every 3 months. So that if I have issues, I can install a previous copy and only have to load a small set of updates.
