    What a headache


    "I'll go and make a coffee whilst I wait for the file to open'' It took 2 years before W7 worked satisfactory. How many years till W10 works properly? Do I have to go thru this all over again. Howabout you develop a product that actually works properly before releasing it? Up to 30 seconds for a file to open for editing. That's extremely fustrating when I've got hundreds of files to edit. Audio preview box is empty, and none of your solutions have worked. Slow start-up. Failures to wake up from sleep. What's next? And I'm afraid to go back to W7, in case it messes up my computer even more.

    Did you just upgrade from W7 ? Clean install is much preferable.

    I would say that most of issues come from upgrading from Windows 7 rather than Windows 8/8.1. So perform the upgrade then clean install. You won't need to enter your cd key when prompted as its already associated with your computer.

    You might wish to see how your PC behaves
    a. in Safe Mode
    b. after a clean boot
    c. after a clean boot and disabling non-MS shell extensions using Nirsoft's Shellexview (free).

    That way you might begin to start identifying things that are slowing your system down.

    Sure, Win 10's immature, but you shouldn't expect it to be slow.
    There are many threads here on sleep-related issues- when you're ready to address those, feel free to search teh forum for relevant threads.

    If you use disk imaging (which everyone should- it saves so much pain, preserves your PC's state and your sanity) then you could:
    - Create an image of your PC as is
    - Clean install Win 10 and see how it behaves

    Decide whether you prefer to proceed based on diagnosing your upgraded build, or with the clean install.

    Your image would allow you to restore your current build.

    "How about you develop a product that actually works properly before releasing it?" - suggest you address that to
    Technet forums
    e.g. or via feedback to MS. This forum is run by users.

    It's all too complicated for me. I'll just have to persevere because I can't afford to pay anyone to help me.

    1. Disk imaging: very commonly used and highly recommended means by which you create a compressed copy of the disk/partition you wish to back up. The image can be updated.

    Advantages:
    Peace of mind
    It can be used to restore your PC to a working state when things go wrong (hardware failures excepted bar the hard drive)
    - in perhaps less than an hour
    - without technical help (that's the idea anyway!).

    Also allows you to relatively easily replace your HDD if
    - you want a bigger/faster one
    - yours fails.

    Provides a full backup- you can extract any files you like.

    Download Aomei Backupper, (or Macrium Reflect) - free.
    (just search- easy to find).
    Install
    Create their boot disk
    Create your first image of (say) C: on an external USB drive (for example).


    You can find lots written up on this, help files to tell you how.

    2. Clean boot:
    I searched on clean boot "Windows 10" for you:
    How to perform a Clean boot in Windows 10 - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki


    3. Clean install
    You have already installed and activated Win 10 on your PC.
    So now you are free to install either the 32 bit or the 64 bit version. (You need to have downloaded the appropriate iso file)

    Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums
    You need to burn the iso file to a DVD or create a bootable USB. The first will be easier for you.

    Since I last posted, I got about 10 minutes when suddenly files opened quickly, then my pc crashes. And then later file explorer shuts down suddenly. Then this morning, pc crashes again. Quote Dalchina "Sure, Win 10's immature, but you shouldn't expect it to be slow" I should expect to get a product that works properly. It took 2 years before W7 worked ok, now you expect me to go thru another 2 years of crap.

    I don't think you're going to get round to trying to sort out your present build, as suggested, so I'll leave you to do a clean install as suggested above. Good luck.

    Windows 7 worked fine right away. Windows 10 works fine as well. The problems aren't with the OSes, or else everyone would be having the same issue.

    A clean install is a simple process, especially if you follow the tutorials on this site. If you are going to go on a rant about the products and then tell us a simple clean install is too complicated, there isn't much else we can do to help.
