Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
You could download a Windows 10 ISO using the media creation tool. Use it to download the version you need, and either save it to a USB or burn to DVD.
You can Google Windows 10 Media Creation tool download and it will bring up the link. Just an option of installing a clean copy.
Windows 10 freezes randomly
Thanks for the suggestion. If I do this will it retain my set up or does it effectively wipe everything and give me new computer with W10?
Sorry to be a beginner here.
Microsoft has lost any faith I had in them over this matter!
IT IS A MICROSOFT PROBLEM! WHY don't THEY RECONNIZE IT!
I know, I will get a reply for bad forum use, but a forum that is suppose to have the answer with all the "Hotshots"
Windows 10 freezes randomly
Yes Tully I too am frustrated. Why can they not simply resolve such a basic issue. Although not the place on this thread I am writing this from my W8 desktop that I have never been able to upgrade to W8.1 due to a completely failed Windows Store.....I need to open a new thread.
My major gripe with a number of Windows issues is that when one Googles the matter there are many posts and solutions but often months ago when it is clear the problem has still not been resolved now.
Over many years I have usually, in the end, upgraded to a new Windows operating system by buying a new computer when I need to. Meantime i will probably revert to W7 on my laptop and get on with my life. Sorry to be grumpy!
Using the media will wipe everything clean and do a clean install with no programs, which you should also back up any important files you may have.
There is also the option to do a system refresh, which is, the system will reload to defaults and uninstall all programs, but will keep your music, videos, documents, etc.
I understand peoples frustration on Windows 10, as there are so many reports of this. Like my computer, works perfect with the RTM 10240 version of Windows 10, but had constant issues with the November update, so I reverted back. As of now I don't have any issues with my system.
Helpers here are all volunteers ,and I don't think any of them will admit to be all knowing, especially me, that's for sure. i never read all of the post in this thread ,for sure , Microsoft could be at fault ,I will not argue that ,but I will say I have been using win10 for over a year ,on at least one of my three computer that at present run win10,and never had any serious issues with it ,, but I think it could also be an issue with 3rd party apps and hardware ,and also users not following the instruction for upgrading there computer .
Thanks Imaneke. I am actually pretty happy with W7 and upgraded only because I would like the current OS so I will probably revert if I can. A computer which freezes every few minutes is worse than not having one. Thanks for your thoughts and help.
there is a very good chance that if you did a clean install using the win10 iso that your freezes will stop ,if I were a betting man I would place a good size bet on it working for you
Your issues are due to drivers and you need to clean install, following the proper clean install procedure. You can view my prior posts, as I no longer have the patience to explain this to a new person every few days like a broken record.
I think your reply Is totally uncalled for!
If you don't have time to help someone that is looking for help on a FORUM that is for helping users.
Then you should no be on the FORUM!
It is a complex operation for anyone that hasn't had a lot of computer time!
It was MONTHS before anyone on this site would recognized that it was a Win10 problem & mot a hardware problem!
I am certainly going to bring this to Brinks Attention!

Does anyone have this problem? A friend of mine recently installed Windows 10 and the computer started to freeze because of it. It was then downgraded back to Windows 8 but the problem persisted.
