Yep, did the same myself. 10 looks good but its so full of bugs ans spyware that i decided to go back to 7 which i found flawless.

The place where i work are upgrading all the PCs to 10, i told them it would be a mistake and already those who have been upgraded are complaining about 10 freezing etc.

Even the annoying daily popups asking you to schedule your 'Windows 10 update install' are very reminiscent of the behaviour of spyware. To prevent these I uninstalled Windows update KB3035583 in the Windows update program; this also removes the Windows 10 icon in the task bar, and to prevent it reinstalling itself on the next update I used the hide function.

Windows update KB3133977 is deadly

Microsoft Warns Windows 7 Has A Serious Problem

Earlier this year Microsoft MSFT +0.88% warned users that Windows 7 has serious problems. I dismissed its claims as a desperate attempt to shift copies of Windows 10 (and I still do), but now Microsoft has warned of a new serious Windows 7 problem that is very real – even though it makes no sense whatsoever…

Now Microsoft is breaking Windows 7 to get users to upgrade to Windows 10

Microsoft has made a change to an update for Windows 7 that can prevent certain systems from booting. While you might expect me to say, "good news, the software giant has fixed the problem", in fact what Microsoft has done is switch the update from "optional", to "recommended". So, on some systems, it will now install, and break Windows 7 automatically.

The latest update from Microsoft has now provided them with a Key Logger. Time to reinstall Windows 7 I think.




It’s something that’s been around ever since the initial Windows 10 preview started infiltrating early adopters’ PCs - the Windows 10 keylogger. That’s maybe too emotive a title for it, but Microsoft is still capturing every single keypress tapped out on your keyboard.

If Microsoft are going to capture every keypress then make sure it’s on a great board. Check out our pick of the best gaming keyboards around today.

Microsoft uses the information to help inform their Cortana assistant, also storing everything you say and scribble using Windows’ Ink feature. They state that sending information on what you type to Microsoft will help “improve typing and writing in the future.”
The fact they’re storing all this data has been highlighted once again by a reddit post covering the topic, but it’s straightforward enough to ditch. There is though no suggestion of any nefarious uses the big M are putting all your logged data towards, so there’s really no need to panic.

Keeping track of what you’re typing/writing/talking about to your PC all feeds into the rise of the virtual assistant, but if the thought of your machine and/or Microsoft remembering everything you’ve ever asked it then there are steps you can take to make sure it goes no further than your home.
