I installed the free offer 3 weeks ago & have been plagued with problems one after another. The "One Key Support" guys are very dedicated, take hours to fix major problems & appear to be not familiar with the new concepts.

Virtually all of my issues stopped when I went back to mozilla instead of edge

The advice I got from my IT contacts was to wait until the free offer almost runs out. Lots of bugs apparently, not necesarily with 10 itself but with your peripherals. It also does things in the background talking across the net and updating stuff that you can't see. lots of traffic apparently.

That's it mate, it will tell you your laptop, computer is compatable and when you install it if theres an issue with let's say your video card that's when your world of pain starts. The girlfriends laptop installed fine, worked well for 15 minutes then the dreaded blue screen of death lol, after many hours II managed to get it back to the original win7 which runs well.

2 close friends have had there system shut down and had to reinstall back to win8 etc. I think Microsoft have huge issues regarding this release. Maybe released to quickly.

I haven't had any problems at all (1yo Dell XPS13) and quite like the interface. I used Win 7 for several years at work and 8.1 at home. It seems to be slightly faster loading some programs and at shutdown. I have some statistics, modelling and GIS programs I used to finish off some work with colleagues post-retirement and these ran without problems as did a recently acquired usb TV tuner. My son had had a bit of bother with his ASUS UX31 (3 yo) needing to disable some drivers relating to usb connected devices before Win 10 would install but now all good for his machine as well. Seems if you have industry bog standard devices it's a smoother ride.

Well, me being me, I decided to "Upgrade" my 2009 Toshiba which had previously been upgraded from Win 7 to Win 8.1. I would call it an interesting experience that I'm still experiencing!

I still have a couple of issues, the main one, even though I'm logged into my LAN, I can't see other assets on my network? Mr Microsoft and his underlings have tried everything but no success. I also have a problem with the Start Menu, which is somewhat erratic in it's behaviour.

I shall persist as it helps to keep my brain active!

We have had all sorts of problems with Windows 10 one of our laptops [didn't change the other], Our computer guys have found that there is a return to previous build option om W 10, if W 10 has not been in for more than 30 days. They are trying that currently to get us back to W 7.

My youngest son (a professional esports, yes! computer gamer CS GO player) upgraded to 10 several weeks ago...he does not have any issues and reckons it great...me I will stick to win7 as I need to run Virtual PC to run some older XP programs that do not run in W7 xp mode but do run in Virtual PC.

Great to hear some people are installing Windows 10 without problems.
I originally had a Short cut key "Epson Scan". One press & hey presto the file was displayed in "downloads" before my eyes to be renamed & use as required.

After 2 hours & 50 mins, Support managed to get a scan to work, but this time I am required to activate "Printers & Scanners" select the appropriate printer, I only have one; right click, "Scan" is displayed on the status line, then the scanned object appears in my "Pictures" with todays folder as an identifier.

Then there's the numerous requests to reenter login password, during daily operation, if I vacate for natural calls, phone, calls, morning tea, visitors, lunch etc etc.

Not knowing the meaning of all the Apps, I refered to the Oxford dictionary, no explanation, but the best I could find was "APPrehendS - "Anticipate with fear"

Upgraded to Windows 10 on my 2 machines. A Dell desktop running 7 - about 5 years old & a Dell laptop running 8.1 - less than a year old. Both went through without any problems and I love 10.
A noticeable improvement is the speed of 10. :Programs & activities are quicker and the boot process. A surprise was that it ran some of my older software - even ones that the compatibility check said it wouldn't.
