    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.
    Yep agree. much slower than windows 7.

    I find it boots up OK but then everything runs absolutely slowly. If I do a search for anything using the Cortana thing, it can take up to 5 minutes to find most things. On my lap top it is instant, but laptops are just toys to me as I only use it to play games.
    I am using a home built system with a fast processor (i7) and 16meg of ram, and it was lightning in Windows 7 Ultimate.
    How do you do a clean install when you have about 16 gig of data to protect?

    Windows 10 is definitely slower than 8.1 or 7. I have a Dell XPS Studio 8300 with i7 and stacks of RAM. I do a lot of work with an Access database and when I upgraded from 7 to 10 it now re-calculates much more slowly. All my browsers download large images much more slowly. I support around 50 Dell PCs of various ages and types for a charity, mainly Vostros with Core-Duos, and these were all running 8.1 for about a year. I have upgraded all of them to 10 and they are slower. MS has gone a step too far and added so many features and Services that they appear to have lost control of the architecture. You only have to look at some of the inane answers from MS staff on the Community forums to see that they no longer understand their product and have no idea how to fix some of the problems and just keep adding more features. I would advise anyone with 8.1 to stay with it as it has all the features you need beyond 7 without the excessive architecture of 10.

    Not in general. You may be experiencing slower performance on your particular machine, most likely because you in-place upgraded a messed up install from 7/8.1 rather than fresh installed 10, but in general Windows 10 is as fast or faster than 7 and 8.1. Also, it looks like you upgraded some pretty old machines to 10.

    umm you copy it to a 16GB flash drive then copy it back after you do the clean install? You could also get someone who knows what they're doing to do this for you.

    Its also the large number of programs that exist on my machine that I have long since lost the disks for. Not to worry - I have managed to clean up the machine by getting rid of the rubbish, cleaning the registry and deleting programs I did not need. Only about 500,000 files to sort now. My data goes back as far as the internet and before.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Just wondering why there is a lag when hitting the start button?
    On my box it is about 3 - 4 seconds sometimes, other things smooth as silk.

    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 was having issues with windows running super slow. AIt was the amount of free space on my main hdd. I went from 4Gb free space to 50Gb by moving some stuff to my other hdd and the difference has been night and day! HOPE THAT HELPS SOMEONE.
