Ratings and reviews

Rated 4 out of5 by fromMuch faster than Windows 7 - Pleased so farMostly works OK.My Laptop was binned - Windows 7 finally crashed after hundreds of failed updates - so I used backup and decided to upgrade. Starting from Windows 7 on my 5 year old Dell Inspiron N5110, i3 processor with 8GB Ram and NVIDIA graphics card. I had one major issue after installation to do with a graphics driver, but changing this for the correct one sorted this issue. I had no display on startup unless I plug in an external monitor. I've had a few minor grumbles in the 6 months I've been using it, but no more than any other OS from Microsoft, and it's generally fast and responsive.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromGood for a while - then......Upgraded a few days ago. All seemed fine and I quite liked the refreshed look and feel.However, today my PC started to freeze and become unresponsive within a few minutes of start.After a few restarts, I gave up and decided, somewhat reluctantly, to roll back to Windows 7.However, that process seems to have failed, so now I have a PC so confused it won't boot and - I think - is not recognising my hard drive.I've gone from a reasonably useable, stable PC, used daily, to an inoperative lump in a matter of hours.Good job I've got this Apple iPad to write the review with.Sarcasm & frustration aside, I hope I can fix this - I miss my PC!

Rated 3 out of5 by fromoverall OK failed on Surface large file tfrDownloaded onto Surface i7 but have had to revert to 8.1 as the Surface Ethernet driver appears unable to handle large files (Use SyncToyCmd at startup to backup Outlook pst file to NAS). Additionally, USB 3.0 driver on the Docking station cannot handle Western Digital USB 3.0 hard drive.. Also I liked the Windows 7 and 8 application search from the start button that seems to have gone. Did not find it before having to revert. Have since also had a hardware problem on the Surface docking station; whether this was triggered by the Windows 10 upgrade I do not know. Maybe just a coincidence though timing is suspicious, recommend do not upgrade YET.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromI've had to do 2 re-installs since "upgrading"As the title says, I have been required to do two re-installs since taking up the free "upgrade". My system can clearly handle it, but the OS has caused me so many problems. Now, I can't upgrade because I have missed the free opportunity, and I sure won't pay for this software in it's current state. I have switched to Linux but unfortunately rely on Windows for Adobe products. This being the case I will have to take the plunge into buying a Mac as I cannot trust this product. Even my older version of Windows 7 is now obsolete because the servers for restoring updates are all but shut off by Microsoft. An absolutely terrible product and service.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromAwful! But has few advantages!I upgraded to Windows 10 last year and it has been ok. But, sine the new August 2016 update it has caused my computer to crash several times a day and become extremley slow to the point where it is unuseable and like a computer that is 10 years old! The operating software also decided to automatically do update and then configure the updates when I am in the middle of working so anything I have not saved is gone forever! I would not recommend Windows 10 to anybody, not even my worst enemy! I would much rather have an older version of Windows such as Windows 7 or 8! Even though it is this bad it does have some advantages.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromInstqalled and uninstalled within a day. (Twice)I have Windows 7 and keep on getting the download and install dialogs. When Windows 10 was first released, I installed it and had to uninstall as it had problems with my NVidia card. It also lost my MS Live Mail 2012 files. So I went back to Windows 7.Following the recent upgrade release, I thought I'd try again. This time my network card didn't work and again it deleted my mail files.I'm not going to try again until Windows 7 becomes unsupported. And I've found out where the Windows Live Mail files are kept and am backing them up -in case Microsoft can't produce a version of Windows 10 that doesn't mess them up.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromMixed BagI updated a Transformer tablet device from Windows 8.1. Really glad to see the Start button back. I use this device a lot to look at photos, and the Win 8 version of Photo was good for this. However, the new one needs a re-think. You can no longer sort by Folder, which makes it almost unusable. I saw a picture of what must have been a beta in a review, and the feature was there, so why on earth did you remove it.Windows 10 is much better than 8.1, but then 8.1 was nearly as bad as Vista.I probable won't bother updating my Windows 7 computer, at least not until Service Pack 1 comes out.Would recommend if you have Windows 8, not if you have 7

Rated 1 out of5 by fromnothing worksI downloaded the free upgrade t my windows & home premium laptop. Everything now has the appeaance of windows 10 and the system tells me it is windows 10 but NOTHING works. Start menu, settings, edge, (explorer.exe element not found message), Photoshop elements refuses to open as directx can't be found, Typing in outlook is painfully slow.As I cant open settings I can't remove it and having found a way around that I'm informed there are no restore points on the system. (There were before the download)Very disappointed that there appears to be no solution and in the meantime my laptop is out of service.
