    Yeah, if the update tomorrow doesn't fix these issues I may have to just roll back to 7 which I really don't want to do since I worked so hard to get 10

    Check in task manager on performance i think. What speed does it say ur cpu is at? Mine was sluggish as and windows had my cpu set too 760mhz. I changed it too 100% usage and it work extrememly well now.

    In power options check under balanced. Then go to advanced. Under cpu management the minimum is prolly set top 5%

    Change too 100 and should be good to go.

    Hope that helps.

    Right click on the Start button , click Control Panel, under System and Security click Find and fix problems, under Programs click Run Programs made for previous versions of Windows...
    Also I hope this helps you ...

    Also you may try to contact the vendor support of the games or software to see if they offer any solutions or updates for their software to run on Windows 10.

    Maybe there is a newer version in the Windows store ?

    This is gonna sound stupid guys, but I just changed it to high performance and it stopped all issues I was having.

    Nevermind it improved some of my problems but not all of them, still below 60 fps in a lot of instances

    I think it is fixed, I opened the case just to dust and saw taht one of my cables came loose and was actually preventing the cpu fan from going, luckily it didn't snap the wire and I was able to sit the cpu properly and now it isn't overheating so it is going fine. I can't believe I didn't realize I couldn't here my loud ass cpu fan anymore haha. But I read somewhere that windows 10 is like a cpu overheating nazi, and that if it is hotter than normal it will shut down its normal performance to protect the cpu while windows 7 let me play with the slightly hotter cpu.
