    I'm done with Win10


    Yes,-I'm done with PC's and Win10 and I bought a Macbook.
    Nothing wrong with Win10??? -Why does this forum exist at all then . . .
    Read down from this this thread and you'll find page after page with Win10 problems.
    821 pages in this subforum only to be exact. -Now,-that's a lot of Win10 problems.

    I'll return the PC/Win10 to the store next week so they can struggle with it for a while.
    Did a restore the other day. Computer worked fine for two days, then it started the usual acting up again.
    Everything works in safe-mode so this is not a hardware problem. Most likely a corrupt restore partition or a HP driver problem. Let the computer store grind on that for a while.
    And here's the worst thing: Microsoft will decide wether the guys at the store are allowed to restore the OS from an external source or not. If Microsoft says no, then I'm stuck with a restore partition that does not solve the problem.
    If so, I'm going Linux with this computer . . . period.

    Lastly, lots of people here have tried to help solve my computer problems, and for that I'm grateful.-thanks a lot.

    Hi,
    So why wouldn't it be possible to restore the pc to the prior os version 8.1 or 7 if that is what you're referring to that is ?

    This forum exists for the same reason eightforums, sevenforums, Linux forums and Mac Forums exist. None of them are without their problems, no matter what you have heard. We have very few people who bother to register just to say how well their computer runs with Windows 10. We only get people who have problems, just like all other help forums.

    I've run Linux for years on my old computer. Yes,-a few hickups, but nothing serious.
    I've had Apple products, not much problems.
    Also had Win 7 for years on another HP Pavilion, never a problem,-just had to reinstall the OS once a year to keep it from getting sluggish. My Win10 experience has been a nightmare all winter. Paid 1000$ for something that forced me to use my old Lenovo/Linux while my wife used her iPAD. Today I got so tired of it all that I paid 2 grand for the Mackbook just to avoid seeing the screen go black on the Win10 PC, computer shutting off for no reason, loosing right-click, frozen startmenu, etc.
    But I'll give you this: -Win10 is wonderful ,- easy to use and smart . . . when it works, and mine does not and has never worked. Problems started on day one. Been trying to do some work on it,-sitting there with a bad feeling, just waiting for it to act up,-and then it does just that, several times every hour I've used it.

    I'll post a thread the day my new Mackbook starts behaving like my Pavilion/Win10.

    I'll ask them if Win7 could be installed,-never had a problem with my previous version of Win7. A liitle slow when starting up, but that's OK.

    Hi,
    I use win-7 99% of the time :)
    I only benchmark on 10 so I would only notice bugs in my overclock or 10 updates which I have on pause again after restoring another system image
    So I spend more time restoring system images than actually using 10 for anything online :)
    I don't particularly like 10 or where it's going but it is what it is

    Win7 always served me well,-I miss it.
    You know, the PC-world and Windows are asking for problems.
    First, Windows must work with computers from hundreds of manufacturers which in turn gets their hardware from just as many manufacturers. Windows must also cope with drivers NOT made by Microsoft. This is asking for trouble.
    I'm sure that Apple products have their problems too from time to time, but Apple is making the hardware, OS and drivers in house, and this is their strength.

    That is a Problem with Apple Products, Replacement parts , not under warranty are quite expensive and not readily available.
