    Upgrading from 7 to 10

    I just want to know if I upgrade from W7 to W10 will all of my applications be removed (eg. do I have to re-install all my apps)?

    When you do the upgrade just chose the option to "keep all personal files and apps" (i think its the default option anyway) and you should be fine.
    I haven't has an issue.

    I ran the upgrade from W7 to W10 and the Nvidia graphics driver was the only software I needed to replace. All my other programs worked just fine.
