    How to uninstall windows 10?


    I am unbelievably dissatisfied with Windows 10. It has caused my PC nothing but problems since I upgraded. Soon as I get one problem fixed another one arises, and in some instances, the same problem arises again. Mind you I had not a SINGLE one of these when I was running windows 7. I want windows 10 gone. It is a piece of crap that windows should have actually worked on before they released. Pathetic. Anyways! I missed the 30 day rollback period and I want to know how do I get this junk off my system? I get an error when I try to format my C: Drive saying I can't format it, I can't install windows XP (the option on the installer is grayed out), I can't reinstall my copy of Windows 7 as it I get the 0x6 error saying that the installation files could not be updated. HOW DO I GET WINDOWS 10 OFF MY COMPUTER? And a new hard drive isn't in the equation for me right now. Can't afford that. Microsoft if you really made it so I can't remove this piece of $@#! off my computer, then that is probably the stupidest thing you people have ever done. Sorry if I sound offensive. I'm EXTREMELY pissed off with Microsoft and their pathetic excuse for an Operating System.

    Maybe you should resolve some of your anger by throwing the computer out the window.

    Or you could just boot the computer from the Windows 7 USB or DVD, and start a clean install by selecting the custom install option, delete all the partitions on the hard drive, and selecting the resulting empty space to install to.

    The OS is fine, mate, it is your computer that isn't working well with the OS. I understand you may be upset, but that won't help you find a solution.

    Members here recommend running a clean install after the upgrade to get things right: Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    And from a lot of experience, I personally recommend making sure your computer manufacturer provides Win10 specific drivers (and installing them, of course). If it doesn't, I encourage you to revert back to your old OS because you run the risk of driver-related issues down the road (if not immediately, like you are experiencing now).

    Or if you aren't interested in trying out the OS or you are unable to complete the two points I made above - to downgrade: Windows 10 - Go Back to Previous Windows - Windows 10 Forums

    Just clean install your previous OS (assuming you have the Product Key for it).

    God I would absolutely LOVE to throw this thing out the window..unfortunately it's really my only source of fun and social accessibility as I live like 30 miles away from the closest town..trust me the thought has crossed my mind plenty of times. Or maybe take a nice hammer to it. I'll try that and get back to you guys, thanks for the advice.
