    If only it was that easy. Many programs get new features but they could be upgraded but newer programs, with new features come all the time, if I stayed with old programs, not supported any more, I wouldn't be able to do 10% of work now. What about games, people just don't want to stay on "Pong" all their lives. Play new game, finish the game, get rid of the game, get new one.

    Has any one checked the registry files comparing Windows 10 clean install versus Windows 10 upgrade. If Microsoft has discovered the solution of extracting minimum registry file entries from a Windows 7 installation during a Windows 10 upgrade; then kudos to Microsoft.

    Now what Microsoft needs is to improve the uninstaller to maintain a "clean" registry and not a bloated registry.

    How would one go about doing what you said?

    One little hitch. If you upgrade windows 7 to windows 10. You won't be able to use Windows 7 on another primary partition. I found out windows 10 upgrade doesn't replace the windows 7 boot loader. It keeps the Windows 7 boot loader.

    I'm only comparing the registry files that you can edit with regedit.exe.
    There are two ways to compare files: size of the files or comparing entries.

    If I may ask, how come you put the commas after the space? I've seen that off and on over the years from different people but never a reason why.

    I assume it's just a case of being a little trigger happy on the space bar (hitting space a split second before the comma)

    I remeber reading both cases that bloat doesn't hurt Windows and yes bloat does hurt the speed of Windows.
    What is causing Windows to slow down if it isn't bloat? A clean install brings Windows back to full speed and seems quicker even after installing all of your apps.

    I have and continue to clean infected computers at my computer club. A number of times infections have effected Avast and MalwareBytes to the extent that one and/or the other had to be uninstalled and then re-installed. At times, re-installation fails because of remnants left behind by the Windows uninstaller. Both of the above mentioned programs have their own "special
    uninstallers" that can be downloaded and used to successfully clean up remnants which blocked re-installation.
