    Yep. And despite the misinformation that a couple of members here like to post, your Windows 7 Product Key is still perfectly valid, but if it is past the 30 days reversion period, you may have to clean install Windows 7.

    Here is a detailed tutorial here if you need it: Windows 10 - Go Back to Previous Windows - Windows 10 Forums

    Alternatively, you could let us walk you through the 'bugs' (which are usually just missing drivers).

    Well Where do i Begin LOL. The Upgrade went pretty smoothly, but it seems that most of my Game will not play like they used to, ( i posted in the Games Thread ) seem pix elated or running at some unknown resolution

    Also there was a lag in identifying my External Drives, there one minute , gone the next , and then back again,

    My VMWare no longer is able to Connect to the internet ( Also Posted in VM Tread )

    Did the Update for my Video Card Drivers,Thought that would help, it did not,

    These are just the ones i have found in 2 days

    Thanks in advance

    Hey mate,
    Update all drivers, update windows.
    Then tell me, are the said games with support for windows 10? Do they at least support windows 8 (system requirements for the game)? Sometimes a reinstall of the game fixes it.
