    Death of Windows 7---Windows 10 suggestion

    Windows 7 will become deceased in January so MicroSoft says, no more updates, which means some may stop writing drivers for it. You may be able to get private party updates to the browser but in my mind the biggest setback once microsoft stops supporting it is security updates.

    I switched to Window 10 recently and I am going to make a suggestion to all Win10 users or possible future users.

    I ran a program that we ask all customers when we install windows 10 if they want it ran. Its called 10 antispy, it deletes all the spyware and bloated cramp from win10.

    My win10 flies is noticably faster than window7 with all the spyware crap out of it.

    You can download it here

    There are two vastly improved upgrades to Windows: Linux (in many flavors) and Apple. That's how I see it.

    I just updated my Windows 10 to version 1903. We'll see how that goes before adding anymore bloatware.

    Bloatware has always been the problem with Windows. It seems to be very important to Microsoft to try to keep you along for the ride as you grow accustomed to less and less control or even less and less knowing what's going on in your OS.

    Linux is all about the opposite of all that, though I can't say I've ever used it.

    And a "power user" is what, exactly?

    My desktop and one laptop are already on 10. Is it too late to load the 10antispy?

    I have an old laptop that still runs 7 since a couple of old games don't work with 10.
