    Help downgrading to Windows 7


    Hello everybody,
    Recently I attempted to use the Windows 10 feature of downgrading to and restoring Windows 7. However when in the process of restoring Windows 7 my computer freezes. Any help to prevent this, or to stop the process entirely so that I could use an alternate method of downgrading to Windows 7 would be very appreciated. I have tried turning it off and back on again, and when in the restoration screen there are no options available. Also CTRL+ALT+DELETE has yielded no results. Any help would be very appreciated, thanks!:)

    Hi have you had Windows 10 more than 30 days installed on your computer.
    If you have then unless you made an image of windows 7 before you upgraded you cannot roll back.
    If under 30 days if you have not deleted it have you tried rolling back with windows old folder.
    Also may I ask why you are trying to roll back to windows 7, perhaps we can help you if you are having trouble with windows 10.

    A couple of blanks need to be filled in, if you don't mind..............................

    Please describe the method you use to initiate the restoring of Win 7.

    2. RE : I have tried turning it off and back on again, and when in the restoration screen there are no options available.
    How did you get back to the "restoration screen" ?
    Did the screen freeze again ?
    What options you were expecting to see on the screen ?
