Although I dislike Microsoft’s hostile approach to getting us all on to Windows 10.

The only answer I can provide to this question is give it a try while it is free.

Make sure that you do a full system backup, then let Windows Update do it thing.

If you do not like it, then you have 30 days to do a simple rollback.


I have had Windows 10 for just under 2 years and on my Quad-Core 4GB RAM HP Laptop, it has been great (except for the time it decided to update the OS during a meeting).

I have found that machines older than 5 years tend to struggle, which could be related to the hardware

A well spec’d machine should alleviate any pain during the Windows 10 transition

  • i3 or i5 Processor
  • 4GB Ram
  • Solid State Hard Disk (or a new hard disk)

Windows Task Manager

Task Manager is a quick way to identify issues – Read Blog

However, if you do not want to take the plunge, but Windows keeps on bugging you to upgrade,

then there are a few tweaks that can be made to silence it.
