    A good post. Quite often a clean install can fix most of the issues, subject to the user also installing the correct drivers.

    Regarding Settings > Personalization > Themes, are you using Windows 10? please go and try to find it
    It is not nice to laugh at users here. There are plenty of themes for Win 10 even one that looks just like 7.

    10 certainly isn't the most stable version of Windows I've used (that position goes to 8.1 first and then XP), but I wouldn't rank it with the dogs ME and Vista. I expect 10 will improve, though, as 8.1 did over 8.0.

    I would say this has as much to do with hardware (and the drivers with it) as anything. So 'stability' is relative, and not precisely measured. Many people found Vista to be extremely stable, and others hated it because support for it was terrible. I would go so far as to say that very little was actually the fault of MS, but some will disagree with me on that. First and foremost, look to your hardware. Software is second.

    Who Agrees that this Windows is the worst upgrade since Windows 7?
    Yes there are a couple of niggles but nothing that cannot or is not being ironed out. I have too agree with the rest, the best so far and its getting better with each new build.

    Yes, of course I am using Windows 10, I see no reason not to use this best ever OS. It seems that you have some issues in understanding simple stuff, maybe Windows 10 is a bit beyond your capabilities?

    (Before you say something about S instead of Z, I have the UK English Windows 10 meaning it's Personalisation for me instead of Personalization.)

    I have used every OS that MS has made either at work, a customer's site or at home. WinME was the first MS OS to try restore points and it failed miserably at it. Windows 2000 was probably the most stable MS ever built. I had no problems with Vista. I would not use XP today even in a VM..Hardware and the correct drivers have a great deal to do with the performance of Windows 10. You will not get the same mileage out of a 7 year old PC that you will with a brand new or current one. The future is Windows 10, if you want to stay with this platform. If not try Apple or Linux.

    If Microsoft never did anything wrong, they wouldn't need to issue so many updates. The limited problems I have with 10 are essentially the same on 3 boxes and a laptop, with different hardware and mostly different software.

    Never had much trouble with either Millenium or Vista, mind you ME was very short lived.

    Looking back Windows 95 was a nightmare, used to spend half the time trying to manually assign IRQs to get things to work.

    No problems with W10, I'd say it's on par with W8 and it'll only get better with age.

    Ok Dusty, you beat me on the reply I was going to ask him if he has done a Clean install yet myself. I didn't right away myself, and tried fixing the problems I was having without doing a clean install, Mainly because of all my registered apps that I would have to re-install, and finding all their keys that I would need to activate each app. I did almost get windows 10 running pretty well after spending weeks tweaking things, changing drivers, and lots of other changes, spent about 5 to 6 weeks doing this. I am stubborn.
    Finally even thou I had my windows running pretty well, it still had a few bugs that I couldn't fix, no matter what I tried. I ended up doing a clean install and my Windows 10 Pro, has been running the BEST I've seen in weeks!!! I didn't want to give in, but a lot of your guys kept telling me if I did a clean install my computer would run a lot better, and know what.... You guys were RIGHT!!!
    Maybe some computers can get away with just updating your computer, but I do think now, doing a clean install is the BEST way to actually see just how good Windows 10 can run on your computer, no matter if its 7 years old, or 1 year old. Clean install AFTER your computer is activated, is the BEST way to go. Sooner or later, you'll have to accept this Windows 10 is gonna be the last OS Microsoft releases for a very long time, might as well jump on the bus now. All the bitching won't help, trust me I know.
