What are the pros & cons of doing the upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10?

We have a PC that used to run Windows 8 which ran perfectly fine and mistakenly upgraded to Windows 10.

Now we have all kinds of problems.

I have only used it a little bit. My gf's computer was acting up so i did a factory restore (windows 7). Then i upgraded to windows 10. The only issues i had are some of the bloatware that HP had in their win 7 instance will not run in windows 10 and i can't uninstall them either because it tries to run the program's uninstaller exe. So i should have removed all that stuff before converting/upgrading.

Using windows 10 is different, i was never forced into win 8 for my day to day operations at work. I have to work on machines that have win 8 / 2012 on them and i get scared and confused on how to do stuff. So some of win 10 features are similar to that but have some of the similarities of win 7. I am annoyed on how they display the  All Programs list though.

If i had to use for work i think it might be neat because we use Office 365 and all that other cloud stuff so it seems like it would integrate nicely.

For what i've read, seen in videos, people i've talked with, and my own impressions on it, there is no reason not to upgrade.

Windows 10 is great.
If you think upgrading will get rid of problems, it won't. There is probably something other than the OS wrong.
However, if you do a fresh install, it may. But, if you have bad hardware, it's still going to be bad.
I've done about 20 upgrades/installs, no problems.

Good info. I've been holding off due to worries about drivers for my legacy devices. I guess I can always set up a virtual machine if need be.

Same as when we went to windows 8 and 8.1

It was frustrating at first and for me I had the windows 7 shell on my windows 8 laptop.

Learning curve for you and your computer.

Many of the drivers for the windows 7 hardware is not made for windows 8 or windows 10. So you have to sit there and do updates and read tutorials.
