MS really made Win7 to look bad because of updating problems and trying to force people to w10. After the published fix: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3200747 my computer is back as a responsive as it ever was. So some of you boasting how fine ur w10 is might have forgotten how fine W7 also was before the MS made the update problems and high cpu associated with it. Never have had any BSOD in W7 unlike some one above posted. Eventually when this laptop dies, it is already 5 years old, I too will also have to get a w10 laptop.
