    10 Pro running fine for me, but yeah I did 7 ultimate to 10 Pro upgrade to save me some hassle/test it, and got file access issues right off the bat that would probably drive an average user BONKERS.

    I was motivated by old software that if I wipe and drop, I have to email for new codes because it sends the programs back to TRIAL (useless) mode, they worked with 10 Pro, it inhaled 7's registry almost too well and botched the file access to some directories, was very strange.

    Getting a black screen for a few minutes at boot is not normal. Something left over from Windows 7 is causing a problem with your upgraded Windows 10. Like I said, upgrades usually don't work well. You need to make sure the upgraded Windows 10 install is Activated with Microsoft and then do a fresh reinstall using a bootable DVD or USB flash drive.
    I am having exactly same issue which "thread starter" had said. First I upgraded via windows update. I was getting boot time of 60sec+. It booted up fast then black screen for almost a min. I had to do fresh install and cleaned up all drives including system reserve and made fresh partitions but still same. Nothing Changed.lol
    And, also yesterday my screen got freezed up while using Edge. I don't remember when last time my screen got freezed.
    One more strange thing occured today. I was copy pasting stuffs back to my laptop. I checked after an hour and pressed keys to wake it up from sleep but it didn't respond. I had to forcefully shut it down.
    My system is almost 4yrs old now. It is HP g6-1201tx.

    Is it me or does windows 10 seem slow to anyone else. its not like i got a ancient laptop its a lenovo t430s got a i7 3520m 2.90ghz with 16 gigs of ram but boy it loads slow and seems to run slow.
    I upgraded from Windows 7 and although I didn't do a full wipe the boot time is considerably faster now, and things like starting apps and games also seems to be faster, although I can't be 100% sure about it. It's definitely not slower.

    IE is slower on 10 than when I was on 7. Edge seems faster.

    The black screen (for 20-60 seconds or even infinite) before login screen is some kind of bug which was introduced some months ago already in Windows 8.1 moslty via some (option) updates. I had it yet on three different PCs, one a laptop. And now had it on Windows 10 too once. I dont know how it is toggled or why it is just a random phenomenon.

    I started with an upgrade and got the black screen on boot. It lasted a minute to several minutes, sometimes seemingly frozen. I was planning on a clean install afterwards anyway, but this black screen did not go away. Now it is only 20-30 seconds but it's there on every boot so far.

    I've noticed plenty of little problems with Win 10, but I can't say that speed, in any way, is one of them. I don't notice any difference at all when compared to Win 8.1. I would say if you have some serious speed difference vs. Win 7 or 8 that you may have some other problem going on.

    My experience thus far. I upgraded from Windows 7 Home preinstalled on my Dell xps 8700 pc with i7 and 16gb ram. Ran great on Windows 7 ( IMO the most stable Microsoft OS since XP or Windows 2000 tho I loved 3.1 aswell).

    10 is slower for certain for me. Just general typing in Microsoft Office is SLOW. It seems to try to be intuitive, tho I don't have that selected. The drag is very frustrating. My pc was up to date on my drivers prior to update and I service it regularly keeping off stagnet software, trash bits and fragmented files. I do not won't to go thru the hassle of reloading Dell pre-installed software and countless updates.

    Browser isn't terribly sluggish for me just seems a bit "broken". Failures to load pages or broken links is big issue for me. Slide scroll is very frustrating as the time frame from highlighting the side scroll to it actually moving is slow or wont work at all.

    I realize many of u will say a "clean install" is necessary and most cases I agree. But it shouldn't be an issue with mine. I keep mine clean and updated and have since day one.

    Slow and lagging are terms I am seeing all over the internet for this OS even after freshly reinstalled upgrades.
    These are just my opinions and experiences with this OS so far.

    I'm just curious. For those who feel, or know, their Windows 10 is slow, what OS were you using when your upgraded?

    What do ya reckon that would be? 8.1 was okay for me. Windows 10 seems sluggish overall and lags randomly. This is with a clean install, after optimizing settings and updating drivers.
