Corrupted cache like WU cache? Left over registry entries? Wasn't that debunked by MS. I use CCleaner once a month for cleaning browser cache, Win logs, temp files etc.Maintenance? When you keep Windows clean, it runs like a Swiss clock. Corrupted caches, leftover reg entries and services (like Zemana), it all can create conflicts and eventually BSOD. I have actually started to use so much hated cleaners since Vista. One CCleaner a day, keeps bugs away.
Yes, there are tons of various caches in Windows: font, icon, DNS, WinINet, WebCache, store, CRL (certificates), etc. Not to mention apps caches.Corrupted cache like WU cache?
According to MS, Windows is perfect, especially 10, and you needn't to do anything to keep it running smooth.Wasn't that debunked by MS.
I have to agree that it was probably the smartest thing they have done. I know that before W10 was released, there were a lot of people (tech writers) that have been asking/saying that MS should offer the upgrade for free, since many people already have Windows with which ever computer they bought. If people bought a new computer afterwards, or needed additional copies, then yes they can charge for it, but their stance was that it should be a free upgrade. Seems like they listened with W10, but these people have been saying this since W7, so, it only took MS how many years?If it wasn't for the free upgrade, I'd probably be using Windows 8.1.
AMEN!I still use Windows 7 and don't plan on changing to 10. I'll migrate to Linux if required but not 10.
I agree. W10 is total garbage...I bought my son a brand new Lenovo laptop and it was slow as Christmas with all the bloat and Mcafee installed.Self-explained thread title.
Windows 10 is:
- Invades Your Privacy
- Weak Security
- Buggy Updates
- Vulnerable to Malware
- No 2-way Firewall
- Slow Performance
- Cannot run 16-bit programs
I agree!And this is Windows 10 fault because Lenovo installed all crap on their laptops?
Slow HDD and 4GB of ram is not best buy, specially if you check SSD prices.
The bloat has got nothing to do with Windows 10. If it had come with Windows 7 preinstalled, I'm sure it would have just as much bloat installed. You complained about McAfee, but these days it doesn't impede performance much and if you don't like it, you can easily remove it. It's worth noting too, that the laptop has a lower price because of bundled junk. If Lenovo was not making money from the included extras, they would have to raise the price.
On that laptop, Windows 10 will run just as fast as Windows 7, if not faster. Bear in mind that support for Windows 7 ends in January of next year. After that, there will be no more updates released, making it more vulnerable to being infected, so it makes sense to run Windows 10 rather than Windows 7..I will always stick to the best OS ever made other than XP which is W7!
