I used to have google.com as my prime search engine but switched to the UK version several years ago for the same reason as did Warwick. Also, in Language options in Firefox mine is set to English UKKilkis wrote:...........For example there are lots of variants of Google.

Upgraded to Win 10 on the PC 6 months after release and it's caused no problems. I've had one irritant on the laptop. On one occasion I switched on, it booted quickly and almost instantly the update message appeared along with the usual admonition "Do not turn off your computer". It then spent about 3+ hours updating. Subsequently, I checked the update history and found two huge updates and several smaller ones. Since then I haven't left the laptop unused for eight months.Kilkis wrote:PS Never had a significant problem with Windows 10.

Our main problem is on a Win10 desktop which has English and Greek fonts installed and the default language set to British English. Usually (not always) when it restarts it defaults to the Greek font, which can get amusing when I know damn well that I entered the password correctly
The laptop is also WIn10 and also has both fonts but sticks to English unless manually switched to Greek.
