    You might want to upgrade to SSD instead of HDD where possible. This greatly decreases boot time and everything in general runs and loads faster because the data transfer to & from an SSD is much faster than a mechanical hard drive. This is true regardless of operating system, and it will help when the machine fills up RAM and goes to the storage drive for VRAM as well.

    Hi Win 10 may be stable but it's slow during start-up and re-starting following updates. I manage about 40 Dell PCs of various ages which I had previously upgraded to 8.1. These are all now Win 10 and they all exhibit longer boot times with really annoying hour-glassing and this is after full defrags. I have also upgraded my own i7 PC with 8GB RAM, Striped RAID etc from Win 7 to Win 10 and this also suffers boot times as long as Win 7 and slower website graphic image download. I notice that hard drive activity is much higher during and after start-up than with 7 or 8.1 and I wonder what Win 10 is doing to keep the drive so active; this is part of the slow boot problem. Microsoft have a lot of work to do.

    I've upgraded 30 desktops and laptops to Windows 10 and there have been no ongoing issues at all. Everyone is happy with it...

    They came here to gloat. I suggest they open a new thread and make the subject: ' The Perfect 10' . All of you who chose W10 can share your success and love for the new OS in that thread. No one is questioning their decision to chose W10. This thread is for those who do not like W10 being forced on them. They want it to be their decision. They have W7/8 licenses, have agreed to the EULAs and have accepted extended support (that MS offered) until 2020 / 20233 respectfully. This is a contract that they believe that Microsoft is trying to violate.
    This.

    It has been pointed a few times now. This thread is about the fact that MS is going too far on its pushing to make everyone upgrade to 10. That's the debate: how MS is just taking away the user's decission to choose.

    If 10 is ok or not, is another one (as I said, I switched to 10 in my both computers and now, after several troubles, everything is alright and flawless, but I had to do clean installas and what not).

    W10 tried to download to my W7 due to some update (KB3102810?) luckily it failed (it made a $Windows.~BT folder).
    There was no prompt.

    I do not have GWX Control Panel installed.

    Hi there

    I still have 2 machines running W7 -- I haven't been forced to upgrade to W10 on those -- all that happens is that Ms has sent a message saying that W10 IS available --you don't have to install it if you don't want to -- and remember for loads of people W10 is a FREE upgrade - W10 Pro retails at around 200 USD (with tax) give and take a few dollars depending on local taxes and pricing.

    Nothing wrong with a company advertising its products -- I'll bet 99% of people on these forums get loads of JUNK / SPAM emapls in their inboxes every day from all sorts of people - and they just delete or ignore them.

    As for updates -- in the settings you can set various options -- and as for adware from Ms -- I haven't seen any on my W10 machines.

    In any case before updating to W10 (or any updating for that matter) it's simple and quick to TAKE BACKUPS so you can restore easily if you don't like W10 or the updates don't work.

    Quote from Shakespeare could be apt on this thread : "Methinks the Lady doth protest too much ..." !!!

    Cheers

    I have one computer that's been on 10 insider since the beginning. I have three other computers running 10-no problems.
    I have a 7 Pro workstation that just received two IMPORTANT updates. One is the nag for 10. The other is to check the hardware and drivers for an upgrade to a modern OS. Microsoft has become the enemy. I'm disgusted.
