You might be looking at saving "your stuff" and then doing a factory restore back to W7.
Getting to my wits end here with Windows 10. My partner has an HP Elitebook 8440p running a Core i5 and 4GB of RAM with intel onboard HD graphics.
It came with Windows 7 Pro 32 bit and when the free upgrade to 10 was offered she jumped at the chance. I encouraged and watched on for a few days, using her as a guinea pig to decide whether or not to go for the upgrade myself...
Anyway, she uses the laptop for work which is mainly a few basic browser applications run in firefox and a few Office 2013 programs (outlook, word, excel etc.). She also has a couple of games on it, namely The Sims 3 and Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.
When it was running Windows 7 Pro the laptop was fast and stable. All programs ran fine including the games with no issues and no crashes.
Since upgrading to Win10 it's been a bit of a nightmare really, it's slow to respond (a good example is in file explorer sometimes it freezes for a few seconds and then all the folders have the wrong icons - they just have the general blank page icon).
The biggest frustration - which may appear slightly petty - is that both Sims 3 and Roller Coaster Tycoon both crash randomly and Sims won't save properly, it just hangs and then closes.
I've tried a few things I've read online - increasing the page file size, running the games in compatibility mode etc. - but nothing seems to work!
We're well past the 1 month deadline to revert back to 7 and I can't find any easy way of doing it so it looks like we're stuck with 10, I just want the damn thing to work properly!
