New mobo, CPU, RAM: Should I wipe my SSD?
In the past, whenever I've done a major upgrade, I've wiped my hdd and manually reinstalled the OS and everything else. Actually, until Win. 10, I've routinely wiped the OS drive every 2 years. It's half a day's work, reinstalling, and re-configuring.
Here's the deal: I have a Win. 10 Pro system. OS and software reside on a new SSD; files on other drives, backed up in the cloud (and on other drives).
I know I can hot swap the mobo, CPU, memory and Win 10 will find drivers and reconfigure. But I have at a few quirks: Some app (I think Adobe) is causing a "COM Surrogate" popup (screenshot uploaded to this site) a few times per day. And I hate dealing with registry stuff or contacting vendors to resolve issues. Also have two logons, one for me, other for Cortana - to lazy to fix, and oh, another logon for Office 365. Screwed up, but works. I'm trying to find the most linear route to doing this upgrade.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
