 Conclusion Picture at left shows a group of shapes in sequence, and can be added and new shapes, if the picture is increased. Illustrates service model development and distribution of Windows 10. The first shape is a check mark, which means that one of the initial versions of the operating system is used. It is an association of different versions of the 'same' Windows 10 operating systems that are being upgraded. On the computer described below, the version 'Windows 10 PRO build 1511-x86' is processed with 'NTLite' software and blocked upgrade (note: 'NTLite' can not embed patches in '1511_2-x86' version). I have to admit I tried to install the latest version of Windows 10 'over' mentioned, and to my surprise the new version did not 'crash' until now it was made and accepted the upgrade of only what was left after processing with 'NTLite'. The knowledge that regardless of compatibility with older software support no meaningful improvement, the reason is the residue on 'x86' system. All Microsoft activity focuses on the new setup interface - 'Settings', and 'Control Panel' practically disappears, founded my decision to block upgrades. The more that some system settings are no longer enabled, or are only possible by setting it directly in the 'registry'. Beside that, the addition of the computer hardware mentioned further is not important to accept the upgrade.

The computer and home network were upgraded with respect to 'EXAMPLE II' according to the following:

 Conclusion Bolded green fonts are modification or addition to the computer and home network, and the last added component is the 'NVMe SSD' on the motherboard (marked in red in the list). SSDs, even the most expensive ones, have not proven to be a reliable component (just remember how many USB sticks you threw away), and HDDs and SSHDs can work reliably and without failure for over 10 years, provided that the seller has not cheated you with the factory refabrished disk. As the 'M.2 NVMe SDD' uses the PCIe bus as the interface, this type of component was used in this case because the data access performance is much better. The module shown in the Figure at the beginning of the paragraph costs about $50. For the same amount of money from another company can buy a module with a capacity of 1 TB? Should be very careful when choosing an SSD device. Since the motherboard is built by 'Gigabyte' company built-in module is from the same company to avoid possible 'feud'. Of course, care should be taken that a BACKUP is made regularly each time the system configuration is changed. Norton GHOST still serves well. When installing the 'M.2 NVMe SSD', use the following instructions:

Entire realization of the home network is shown the next Figure.

Some components are purchased because they dropped the price because of the newer products, but are sufficient for the previously described computer, and some have received as a gift, because the owner outdated, but fit well in the displayed home network. Not of all of the previously listed components are shown in the Figure about Home network, especially those connected to the PC. And Author's PC isn't 'Alienware', but it would be nice if it was.

But, first, here is a sequence of Figures which explaining how to block the upgrade of the operating system or some other software products; enlarged Figure 4.6.76.

From the displayed set of images can see which components are not 'hidden' and that can be upgraded, and components that are 'hidden' and that will not be upgraded. This record is kept in a small database of upgrades. Therefore, you should be very careful using some 'cleaning' tools because the data in this database can be deleted. For this hacking game, you can use the software 'wushowhide.diagcab' that you can that you can download here. System Policy can not perform an effective blockade of upgrades, although this would be, in my opinion, the right solution. However, with system policies (gpedit.msc) should be banned automatically update and adjust it so that it displays a warning about the upgrade (choice of 2 or 3 in Figure 4.6.90b) in order to get to use 'wushowhide.diagcab' before installation. After the changes made by this tool should restart the computer to excluded records of the upgrade are not displayed.

 e-Mail All other activities regarding upgrades of OS are without significance. Since the entire 'Microsoft Office' suite is not installed, some components are blocked for upgrading because not present at all. No worries, the installed parts of this package will be upgraded, as well as the updates and definitions of the anti-virus program (Windows Defender), and occasionally some critical patches. The 'EssentialPim' software is used for email, as Microsoft software have been shown to be 'vulnerable' for the same purpose. Its use is not a commercial for them, but a solution found by the author who has the most commonly solved 'INBOX' for all user accounts, and is not 'vulnerable'. There is a free and PRO version that is payable one time. A useful feature of this e-mail client is support for PGP.

Icons with shield indicate that software works in some 'compatible' mode (Figure 4.6.74). The organization of the disk system and the installation of the operating system and the software resulted in the concept of organizing the data in the following figure with the use of a plurality of links made with the 'Link Shell Extension (LSE)' software which you can download here.

 Settings OS with LSE
Figure** 4.6.92 Organization of OS / Computer Components. ( + / - )

Figure 4,62.a shows four interesting clips of Windows Explorer (WE); first on the left show the user links on the [C:] disk created with SLE, which redirect all user folders to the folder of the same name on the [E:] disk, as shown below. There are '# ....' folders that are nothing but the working file of the software used. In this way, all dynamic contents are relocated. The upper right part of the Figure shows the LSE relocated folder [C:\Windows\INSTALLER] to the [D:/#INSTALLER] folder. Below that part of the Figure, the contents of the LSE program support are also displayed in the [C:\Users\Administrator] folder in the [F:\PUBLICS] folder. In this way, the [C:] disk is free of numerous writings and is therefore fast, of course with the added help of 'RamDisks'.

Basically, the computer relies on two 3.5" hybrid disks and one 2.5" (FireCuda SSHD). Hybrid disks enable faster response, and due to sufficient physical memory, the ability of 'Romex' software to support 'unavailable' physical memory up to 16 GB created two RamDisks, of which the 'PageFile' disk contains most of the 1×RAM for 'PageFile.sys' file, and the rest is a 'Temp' disk that is primarily 'clipboard' for all 'Cache' files, and .temp files of the system, users and administrator. Of course there is a CD/DVD/BR burner/reader that supports the latest long-lived M-DISC (Millennial Disc) standard. 'Alcohol 120%' is an indispensable tool to help with 'RamDiscs' and their 'images'. All this is already shown in Figure 4.6.91b. Figure 4.6.92b shows the still current motherboard, and Figure 4.6,92c shows the many built-in components.

Testing is done using the site A small file is downloaded from this site, which when started analyzes the user's computer and sends data to this site for comparison. Typical client-server configurations. The global analysis of the computer described on this page is shown in the following Figure.

 Test description
Figure 4.6.93 Description of the computer after testing.

With regard to the organization of a computer system and embedded component characteristics are not at all bad. A more complete presentation of the test results follows immediately after the previous one and is shown in the following Figure.

 Test results
Figure 4.6.94 Computer test results.

The results show that computers behave outstandingly in almost all elements in this class. In particular, we see the good throughput of the FireCuda SSHD 3.5" hybrid disk, which contributes the most to good results. The poor result of the 2.5" hybrid disk is not important because it has data installed for the operation of the software ' iStripper ', which starts once in ten minutes and the disk after reading the data it is no longer used. It's a girl dancing in the lower right corner. It can be determined how they will dance, how long, how big they will be, how many there will be and much more.

 GPU The analysis in the following Figures shows the increase in computer performance when improving components by one level in the same class. Figure 4.6.95a shows a typical configuration of a computer with a Z170 chipset. Figure 4.6.95b shows properties of the initial configuration of the computer. If at the specified configuration changes the working memory to faster (Corsair instead of G.Skill) the result is seen in Figure 4.6.95c and the changes are not significant. A significant impact on computer performance has a change in the CPU (i5 7400 to i5 7700K) by up to 10%, as shown in Figure 4.6.95d, but not in terms of graphics. A better graphics card has the greatest performance in terms of gaming, up to 20% (GTX 1060-3GB in GTX 1070-8GB) according to Figure 4.6.95e. The improvement with all the better components, according to Figure 4.6.95f, as expected give the best results, but the computer is almost twice as expensive.

The result of the comparisons is such (Year 2019.) that when installing better components, you get a computer quite sufficient for fast daily work and a little gaming, and according to the usability scale shown in the following Figure. However, the greatest credit for this goes to the graphics card (GPU).

 PC Usability
Figure 4.6.96 Usability of the computer according to the test.

Basically not a bad result for a computer with a single graphics card. So, the essence is in the good organization of the installed OS on multiple disk partitions.

The following Figure shows an old test to measure the characteristics of a computer.

A similar newer version is available which costs quite a bit.

 Speed of 'M.2 PCIe SSD' All of the above tests were performed on a computer with the operating system 'Windows 10 v1511-x86 build 10586.1177'. Why x86 type OS? Because a lot of 'older' programs are used that don't work on the x64 platform. Version x86 is smaller and therefore loads faster, while newer x64 versions require even better resources and without the use of SSD disk are almost unusable due to the slowness. The use of 'M.2 SSD 2280' gives very good results in terms of OS speed, but cannot be compared to existing tests because the testing service software is outdated and does not know how to outperform them, and the result is like the picture in the paragraph. But the speed of the OS and software is far more acceptable, and the work on the computer itself is more comfortable. Even better results would be achieved with the newer generation of this type of plug-in board, as shown in Figure 3.5.48. The M.2 connectors support 'M.2 SATA SSD' or 'M.2 PCIe SSD' and support RAID configuration.
The described version of the OS is no longer updated, except for antivirus software, necessary security vulnerabilities and the like. In addition, it needs to withstand Microsoft's failures, and as the working interface increasingly adapts to mobile devices (desktop and mobile), it's pretty ugly on a desktop computer. There are several reasons to use the older x86 version (1511) of Windows OS:

Microsoft has announced that it will soon discontinue support for x86 software support in its entirety. Furthermore, in addition to functioning as a service, using software in the 'cloud', software vendors are behaving similarly, which is increasingly becoming a service. It turns out that it is more efficient to use a fast Internet connection than to rely on slower disks. So, everything goes for rent.

Why an operating system if you have to 'tinker' with it constantly instead of using the useful software? Perhaps once in the future 'Windows 10' becomes a valid operating system. Who is waiting - welcome.

However, on the x86 32-bit OS, a few 'little things' can be done to free up as much working memory as possible without intervention on kernel of OS:
