I too plan to do a "clean install", but from what I have read, I need to do the Win10 "upgrade" first so that my Windows 10 gets activated, and then do a clean install . In due course, I will download the Media Creation Tool. Folks have posted some good information on how to do it. I plan to follow these instructions here.
In my young and foolish days (before I joined BC), I used to run optimizers and reg cleaners on my two Win7 computers, so I plan to use the Win10 clean install as a way to resolve any corruption (and I still get occasional BSODs on my main tower). Like you, I have heard that there are far fewer compatibility issues with your older apps if they are installed directly into Windows 10. The Win10 clean install migration is going to knock me offline for about a week, I expect. I have a lots of apps on this main computer to migrate.
In any event, I am in no rush to migrate just yet. I'd like to see Win10 not generating as many problem reports as it is currently.
This weekend I was planning to upgrade my 2015 Bitdefender Total Security to the new 2016 version issued yesterday. I was on their Forums this morning. All kinds of people reporting that after the upgrade, they could not shut off their computer, without holding the power button in! That's kind of a serious bug!! So, I think that I will give BD a month or so to sort out their issues before I upgrade BD ...
One wonders, all of these software packages (Windows, BD) are supposed to have been beta-tested ... ?
Have a great weekend. Stay safe.
