Having installed Win 10 on my desktop and laptop I didn't have many complaints. The desktop is almost always on and updates automatically without
much fuss. However, the laptop had been turned off for a week or so when I decided to watch some movies on it. I turn it on and realize I can't get
anything to work. I can't even look at a folder - it just doesn't respond. The problem was the stupid updates, which seemed to have been backlogged
for a whole week! The laptop isn't an uber device by any means, but it isn't junk either; it's about three years old and has OEM Win 8 64 bit, so
it's more than capable of handling Win 10, in theory anyway.
Two hours later I had enough of waiting. Turned off internet via device manager, a process that took about 10 minutes due to the lag, then deicded I
wanted to go back to Win 8.1. Fortunately, this process is really easy. I was expecting to have to use a recovery partition or something lame, but I
In the search bar at the bottom on your screen just type "restore," then you will see an option along the lines of "revert back to Win 8.1." I
imagine it's the same for Win 7 or whatever. So I clicked on that then a couple of confirmation buttons and 15 minutes later I had got rid of Win 10
on my laptop, thank god.
Just making this post because I'm almost certain others will come across this moronic problem with Windows 10.
I will also add that everything restored perfectly and Windows 10 was removed, never to return.
