    Yeah So i ended up backing up my important data and doing a clean install much much better it runs a lot better, I'm actually now considering next weekend doing my desktop so far i'm actually liking windows 10 there are somethings i don't like. like hopefully a black theme like windows 7 comes out soon too much white i don't like. and somebody hopefully comes out with something to change the login screen cause i hate that windows hero screen. and boy where there a lot of things of things i turned off likes of things for privacy and data to be sent to Microsoft i shut down annoying. and pretty much all the apps i removed lol. just some minor annoyances i hope things come out to modify them and things to turn off but all in all not bad.

    That's not true. You can still re-install your Windows 7 or 8.1 within the first 30 days.
    How exactly are you going to re-install a previous version of Windows if you have deleted the windows.old file? Not possible I am the one who originally said that you can reinstall older windows within 30 days as long as you don't do a fresh install.

    You use your Windows 7/8.1 install disk to do a fresh install of Windows 7/81, wiping out Windows 10 in the process. Using an OEM's Factory Restore partition might also work to go back to Windows 7/8.1

    That's why I always have partition backups prior to do any clean installation. And my personal documents are stored on a different partition too.

    when you do the install and it give you the choice to let them do the setting or customize i did customize and well i read things slowly as i ended up turning off everything one by one then in the privacy setting of windows 10 itself I pretty much turned everything off as well. I put some link to some site you may want to check out. some of it is probably the same reducny but its worth looking at if you want that stuff. even if you think cortana is cool i turned it off. how do you think it learns about you its saves and sends everything use search for to a server back at Microsoft no thanks. google already does that enough and i have a fake made up google account and i have so much ad and tracking blocking on my firefox.

    For the love of God!!!!


    I just did the free upgrade. New Lenovo laptop i7 processor 8gb memory and Windows 10 is so slow I'm dying faster that it loads any program. From Chrome to Facebook app. I have to surf Facebook on my mobile while I'm waiting for a google search to happen.

    Please I'm not a super geek, as much as I yearn to be, and I need serious help.....

    Hi Jennifer and welcome to the forums..
    Sorry to hear that you're having issues with 10.. and I hope this might help a bit.. but try to be patient with this answer. Some members here have found that with this issues one solution is to perform a clean instillation of the OS(10). Here is a great tutorial by Shawn(@Brink) Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    Before you do anything make sure that you back up your personal data on something.. DVD,CD,, USB,.,, a separate partition on your lappy. And here is how to make a separate partition: How to partition a hard drive | PCWorld

    By creating a new partition for your personal data it keeps you from losing the data if you have to reinstall the OS.

    HTH
