A Clean Win10 install solves many issues caused by an upgrade. I think it also depends on how the upgrade was installed ... GWX seems to cause the most issues, using an ISO to upgrade causes fewer issues.
To be fair ... it's more of a matter of support for old programs than the OS itself ... there's a lot of carry over with an upgrade and there are a lot of programs that were updated to run on Win8 and Win10. The upgrade install does not change old 3rd party programs - it sets compatibility.
Agreed. I've seen this especially on upgrades of W7, more so than W8. Clean installs have resolved every single issue I have come across.
