    Can I revert to Windows 7 a second time?


    I like Windows 10 but it caused too many problems, so I used the option to revert to Windows 7. This has also meant a return to getting insistent messages wanting me to install Windows 10 again (and on one occasion, an attempt to install it without my permission). My question is, if I do reinstall Windows 10 and run into the same problems, will I have the option to return to Windows 7 a second time?

    Yes. Should be valid for 30 days after the second upgrade to Windows 10.

    Although a good system image backup made with a program like Macrium Reflect Free is still a much safer alternative than trusting the Windows 10 revert function, and will be available after the 30 days revert period.

    I would also recommend using showkey plus on this forum under apps and software to find and record your Windows 7 product key, if you don't have it written down already.
