Starting this topic to help make some sense of how best to deal with Windows 10 and the issues it causes with rFactor and NASCAR Heat and other sim racing platforms.
Post your personal experiences. Be as detailed as you want and let's start compiling a database of links and best practices.
This problem is going to get worse before it gets better.
Here's a link to a thread about Windows 10 and GPL (Gran Prix Legends) from Sim Racing Mirror Zone site:

From one of our followers, (boxthislap), on our Instagram account came this good article about Windows 10 and Logitech G27 not working after updates.
Microsoft has been releasing these last days a troublesome update for some of simracers using a G27/G25 Logitech steering wheel.
Logitech Gaming software updates to 8.83.85 version and this causes G27 being recognized as Driving Force wheel without clutch or degrees to be configured.
Jacob Klein (and a friend of mine) experienced and solve it with the following procedure:
- On 5/21/2016, Windows 10 offered “Logitech – Other hardware – Logitech Download Assistant”, which was auto-installed.
- I believe it upgraded my Logitech Gaming Software from v8.82.151 to v8.83.85
- It also messed up my G27 installation, as both (Logitech Profiler) and (Control Panel -> Set up USB game controllers -> Properties) showed my wheel as a Logitech Driving Force PS2 wheel.
I fixed it by:
- Opening “Programs and Features”
- Uninstalling my install of “Logitech Gaming Software 5.10” and v8.83.85
- Reinstalling “Logitech Gaming Software 5.10”
So, then end result is back where I began: “Programs and Features” correctly shows both:
“Logitech Gaming Software 5.10” (for my G27 wheel)
I HIGHLY recommend you read the rest of this post as there's some more great info in it. CLICK HERE
Here's a good link on how to optimize your PC for gaming without relying on the upcoming Windows 10 "Gaming Mode" due out in April 2017.
It's kind of a long read and there are some technical aspects that may be somewhat confusing but most everyone will get the jest.
