I bought a Toshiba laptop in early December and was completely befuddled by my first Windows 10 experience, so I put it aside for a few months. Last week I started over and really hate everything about Windows 10. I am having a variety of problems with my computer now, including having problems installing programs (I can't run Spybot Anti-Beacon, the computer freezes and I had a tou,gh time installing Libre Office, too.) I tried installing W7 from a disk (legal copy) and reset the booting order to boot to DVD in the UEFI and when I tried installing, got an error msg about the system not finding a proper digital signature, so I gave up and went back to W10. I just installed an Intel wifi update and now my fan is running constantly. I spoke with a technician about installing W7 and they told me it probably wouldn't work; Why not? I read recently that MS has been working with chip manufacturers to block W10 machines from downgrading back to 7. I have an Intel i7 5500 CPU @ 2.40 GHz. Is there any reason I can't install W7? If I can, how do I deal with that digital signature issue? And if not, how do I uninstall the Intel update that has my fan now running non-stop? Where do I find out which update was installed? I tried poking around in event viewer but don't really know where to look.
I have two other computers with W7 and I'd like to have consistency in using all three computers.
Even if MS discontinues supporting W7 in 2020, II would have a good 3-4 years of easy usage.
