I have a Toshiba laptop that I had let upgrade from Win 8 to Win 10, through the MS update. After trying it out for a few weeks I have decided it is not for me. Several problems popped up such as Wifi capability vanishing into thin air.. just nothing there all of a sudden one day, plus all the invasive practices MS is participating in that I have read about over the net... just don't feel comfortable using it to be honest, I didn't like 8 at all in the least. So here is what I have decided to do. If this sounds like a good idea, please let me know. If this seems like a bad idea, also would appreciate any input.
Rather than trying to install Win 7, over the current system.. wiping the HD and starting again, etc., I have decided to have the current HD removed, replacing it with a 500 GB SSD HD, and then installing Win 7 on that. Current HD is not SSD.
Question I also have is:
If I go ahead and do the HD install, and then get Win 7 installed, will win7 update to 10 on its own, as I have read about in the news, or is it not a big deal to be able to stop the win 10 upgrade? With a new install of win 7, I suspect there will be a large amount of upgrades and I'm not sure how to go about deciphering which upgrade does what and which one is the one (or ones) that will automatically start the win 10 upgrade.
Any feedback is definitely appreciated.
