All my issues with Windows stopped when I stopped updating Windows. My Win 7 PC has not had as much as a glitch since I turned off automatic updates three years ago, and my Win 10 laptop has been running perfectly for the past 2years since I reset it, and then disconnected it from the Internet. 

 

According to Microsoft Tech Support, they have no idea when Win 10 will become a fully functional oprtaing system, as opposed to being an experiment, but until that time comes, I won't endure another Win 10 infection.  


I don't do automatic updates on Windows 7 either, but if you get too far behind, Microsoft will force it. I went 6 months once and woke up to a forced update. That has happened to me 2-3 times.

I must admit that I did not know Microsoft could force Win 7 updates. I have not updated anything on my Win 7 pc for a couple of years now, and I have not seen any forced updates. Maybe Microsoft just does not care about their African market?

I had Win 7 and was forced to update to 10 - a permanent regret - and everything was mucked up. I had to buy a new printer and camera and my Word/office program was contaminated. I loathe Cortana (as well as the stupid name) and "Edge". 

 

And then, a couple of months ago, I kept refusing to update and my PC crashed, so money was spent on getting it to go again. (No files lost this time TG). 

 

That said - it is eight years old and still sort of functional. Like Wendy I am debating a Mac. I had an old Mac laptop that died the death and I still mourn it (I also mourn my old XP).
