Yes, we have a public repo, without login.

mmm, this looks interesting to investigate.
I will try with fresh installs on a few upgraded machines and see of
there are any difference.
But some machines that came with Windows 10 had no difference.

Since most of our machines have been upgraded to windows 10, we have a
mix here about versions and hardware, but all seems to react the same to
the change from Windows 7 to 10.
