what if u download one movie at a time; when ur download starts, u close ur web browser n wait till ur download is complete. its likely a system issue since the service is still on. so try that n lets c what happens next

In my personal summation. Windows 10 is an upgrade. I migrated from Windows 7 ultimate to Windows 10 Pro. I upgraded without any issues.
Windows 8.1 was a failure, but Windows 10, a definate upgrade !!!
This new OS is a work in progress and a few patches here and there, should eventually clear all teething issues.
Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 is a downgrade, but Windows 7 to Windows 10 is an UPGRADE !!!!
NB: Used destroy windows 10 spying to enhance my privacy.

Please enumerate the UPGRADE, and don't mention the UI, that doesn't count abeg. What third party app will solve the low RAM issues.

I use a core i5 2.6ghz Intel 4th generation CPU
I don't do heavy graphics as my work is basically remote tech support. I don't have any games installed.

The battery issues, I won't even bother talking about that. In my humble opinion, Windows 10 should have remained in BETA for quite a while, before assulting our senses with their collosal failure. It seems the higher they go, the worse it becomes. I just see Windows 10 as a failed attempt at developing a closed system like Apple, which will never work.

I like the UI, but the performance leaves too much to be desired. Hopefully in 2yrs from now, Windows 10 will finally be an upgrade, for now it's still fancy for someone like me. I UPGRADED back to windows 7 with speed.

Someone should please tell Microsoft that we don't need fancy, we need performance period.

I have not had any issues with my upgrades,so far.I agree the battery drain is worrisome, but I do not have power issues, hence battery drain is not an issue.

I have deployed and upgraded windows 10 to over 600 laptops and ultrabooks(so far and counting), no upgrade issues beyond comprehension.
In my summation, it's an upgrade.

NB: I don't know why you are having RAM issues, I have not encountered such on all my walks yet.
You hate windows 10(for now) and I love windows 10. Let's simply agree to disagree or disagree to agree!!

I still don't get the features that makes Windows 10 an UPGRADE, at best it's an UPDATE with new fancy themes.

Personally, Microsoft needs to go back to the drawing board, the idea of rushing out an OS every few years on a platform like Windows is just not working. Many people felt Microsoft will get it right with Windows 10, but I don't think it has lived up to the hype.

Honestly I have no hate for Windows 10, but performance is the main thing for me.

Over 600 updates in just over two months shocked shocked, your organisation must be very big to have been able to have done that many update, and am interested to know the volume-deployment method you used to deploy windows 10

Anyways one man's meat is another man's poison, but I doubt if many peaople share your enthusiasm for Windows 10

Like I stated, and has you have concurred. Everyone to their own taste !!! Their are various systems for mass deployment,depending on the environment and client request.
Microsoft has always makes mass deployment quiet easy with varying tools. Volume Activation Management Tool, User Migration Tool, Windows Deployment Services,Windows Recovery Environment, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit etc etc etc

Give Windows 10 the time to florish. All the teething issues would all be resolved. Remember Windows xp and Windows 7(they were not all perfect, to start with)!!!! Infact I still have some client systems running Windows xp, they have simply refused to upgrade !!!!

NB : Don't you like updates with fancy themes ? Same reason I have refused to update my Droid to L or when M becomes available. KK is still my KING !!!!!!!!!!!!

You feel 18,000,000 people are wrong so far ?

Windows 10 Pro

PROs: EVERYTHING except
CONs: 2Hours Battery Life grin But I don't Care

Re: Known Cons Of Windows 10 And Their Solutions by lanre316: 7:13am On Oct 18, 2015
I noticed something about this battery issues on windows 10 laptops. I experienced a sharp increase in my laptop's battery life as soon as I did these
1. I disabled Cortana (Personally, I really don't need it)
2. I uninstalled Adobe flash (most sites don't use it anymore)
3. I disabled automatic updates (I use Windows 10 pro).

I'm sure cortana, flash and updates consume a lot of battery life. This might improve your battery life too if you tried them.

Dell is already selling laptops with Windows10. I saw it on their website 2/3 weeks ago.

After upgrading to win 10 (from win7), the only con I noticed is about 2secs lag in the touch pad.

Solution:

Device manager >> Mice and other pointing devices.
Right click on the present driver (Synaptics SMBus TouchPad) and click on "update driver software".
Select "browse my computer for driver software" >> "let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
Now pick ps/2 compatible mouse and click next at the bottom to install it.

Now restart the system...datz all

Laptops preloaded with Windows 10 are already available.
Or simply buy a laptop with Windows 8.1 and upgrade. The upgrade is free!!! All it would cost you, is cost of data and time to download.

To activate "Hey, Cortana," click in the search box located in the Taskbar.

When the Search window comes up, click on the Notebook icon on the left side of the window

Next, click on the Settings icon.

There you'll find a button to enable Hey Cortana. Click on it to slide it to the On position.
You can now go about using your computer as you normally would, and whenever you need Cortana to perform a task, start by saying, "Hey, Cortana," followed by your command
