Good or bad news: last chance to upgrade to Windows 10

38 posts in this topic

The problem in the future will be new hardware and software not optimised for windows 7, I think intel has already warned of this on there new chips, and all Microsoft will be doing is pushing out security updates until the end.

Then it`s win 10 or an Apple mac and you will be rid of big bad Microsoft.

I have yet to hear a compelling reason to move from 7 to 10.

I am still wondering about doing the update to Win10.

I would like someone who might know if I install Win10 will it disconnect the myriad of software I currently have installed and require me to reinstall and maybe further require me to upgrade software.

I recall having a perfectly good Epson Scanner using XP, I got a new computer, the scanner was not upgraded to work with Win7, and therefore was junk, requiring me to buy an new scanner....I was not happy.

You can stay with what you have at the moment but build a new PC and try running it on WIN XP and see what happens, hardware without drivers to install, the same will be the case with WIN 7 in time.

The same is going on in flight sim at the moment some developers no longer supporting 32bit sims.

No issues with win10 and better to be up to date with security especially with all the rampant loopholes trying to be spoofed and hacked. If there  is issues with win10 then its usually to do with older hardware and the manufacturer not putting out win10 drivers. Better to get it free by the deadline than to pay MS for a whole new OS come 2020. 2 years is not that far off. 

Perhaps look at this security chart and make a decision.

That's a great list! Now, please tell me which one of fancy those pieces of merde has turned my overclocked 7700K/1080ti PC powerhouse system a stuttering gob-fest since the KB4043961 update got installed on it?

Not sure. Dont have that particular KB update probably because I was away so it was updated within another update but never had any sort of slow down with any update at all. 

I would have a look at your processes and see what is using up all your CPU time. 

I dont expect every single update to be installed without a hitch  as its software and there are millions of computers with all sort of combinations,  but if its a minority, then its more likely something within your system. If they had hundreds of thousands with that issue, there would have been a hotfix for it.
