Greetings all, Just finished upgrading my desktop machine to Win 10 (as opposed to fresh installs on my other machines). The upgrade generally went ok modulo needing to download the latest Nvidia drivers. BUT… in a PowerShell window, if I run Get-Help on a non-existent command, say “Get-Help foo”, the command takes maybe 10 minutes to complete. After about 2 minutes it shows the “Searching…” progress bar. The process consumes about 20% of the CPU and doesn’t seem to be generating any network traffic. My other machines don’t have this behaviour. I have run Update-Help a couple of times, which completed normally. Any ideas? -g
Very OT: Win 10 Powershell Get-Help slowness...

Thanks Michael! It’s nice to have a community of informed technologists to ask questions of…
Wow! Congrats to you for upgrading to Windows 10 so early. We're nowhere near ready. Let's hope you crazy early adopters find and fix the bugs for the rest of us ;-)
Just a tip, if you're upgrading a OEM version of Windows 7, the
activation key isn't the sticker on the outside of the machine :-(
