    I still use uTorrent, it's not vulnerable to the DLL Hijacking Exploit, so is perfectly safe to use if you wish to use an older version.

    Go to this webpage:
    Scroll to the bottom and select the edition of Windows 10 you want an ISO for, then the language.
    You will then be presented with 32bit and 64bit ISO's, the SHA1 of these ISO's also matches the equivalent ISO of your choosing on MSDN.

    Yes, just re install the same edition you upgraded to. When asked to enter a key simply skip it and Windows will activate a few minutes after you have a working internet connection.
    If you use a program to view your key, you should see you have one of these generic keys depending on the edition of Windows 10 you upgraded to:
    Windows 10 Home - YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7
    Windows 10 Pro - VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
    Windows 10 Home SL- BT79Q-G7N6G-PGBYW-4YWX6-6F4BT
    Windows 10 Pro VL-MAK - QJNXR-7D97Q-K7WH4-RYWQ8-6MT6Y

    That is essentially what's been happening with Windows 10, everyone who's got the free upgrade has the same generic key.
    You can re-install on hardware which has already activated Windows 10 with no key and Windows will activate once you connect to the internet.
    It's not a bad idea in theory for laptops / tablets where hardware can't really be upgraded, however for people with desktop PC's who like to upgrade a lot, the free upgrade could likely end up useless after a motherboard change. You are essentially licensed for the lifetime of that device, providing you don't make any major changes to the hardware inside it appears.

    I quite like the new forum, I can tell a lot of hard work has gone in to it!
    Some constructive feedback that I think would improve the layout / usability is:
    1. The layout would look a lot tidier if all threads were like this one for example, that looks really nice. By that I mean don't show the first post at the top of every page of the thread and remove the rectangle at the left with the up-vote arrow in.
    2. On the main forum view an option to hide the right hand sidebar like on the forum before the upgrade would be a nice addition.
    Other than that I think everything looks pretty professional and neat, please don't take my feedback in any other way than constructive!
