Hi Buba_Bear,

Technical Preview should work with the same devices and programs that work with Windows 8.1, but you might need to update or reinstall some of them.


Have you upgraded from Windows 8.1?

If you face any difficult while installing third party security programs, you may try to install the program in compatibility mode to see if that helps.

a. Locate the executable file (.exe file) for the driver installation program.

b. Right-click the file, and then click Properties.

c. In the Package Name Properties dialog box, click the Compatibility tab.

d. Click to select the Run this program in compatibility mode for check box, click Windows 8 with which it is compatible with in the Run this program in compatibility mode for list, and then click OK.

e. Double-click the executable file to start the installation program.

Hope this information helps. Reply with the status so that we could help you further.

For AV, Avira free, AVG free, Panda free, and Comodo work. For firewall, tinywall and firewall control work but popus galore since they are just frontends to windows firewall. Funny how the small players mostly work but the big names tank? Go figure!

AVG Internet Security 2015 works fine. Or use What Windows 10 already has, i.e. Windows Defender and Firewall until you can better it.
