Can't help you OC, my laptop is still running under steam  ;)
Over 90% of all computer problems can be traced back to the interface between the keyboard and the chair

I've got it on one of my laptops, and on the face of it, it looks Good.
However, if you decide to Download, then before you do, research on privacy P2P,then when downloaded, this needs turning off.
In fact here you are :-

Simple things to do, but after  doing this, it looks good.
