    Default Do not upgrade to windows 10

    I decided to take the plunge and did the free upgrade to Windows 10.
    Don't do it.
    All went well until a week ago and the updates started to be applied, you can't turn these off only delay them. Talk about holding a company to ransom when updates fail etc. No company will upgrade to Windows 10 for mission critical PCs.
    Problems.
    1 Sound card no longer worked. Easy fix just had to select a lower sampling rate.
    2. All your previous defaults for browsers etc not remembered and if you are using Explorer for browsing your favourites go missing. Plus the New edge browser is not compatible with certain websites either.
    3. recent update no means I have lost the start menu. Or access to Action Center or notifications etc. There is a fix but you have to apply this every time you boot up. And the Start Menu is very buggy.
    4. DVD drive is completely missing. It works as I booted up a an Ubuntu disc from it just to make sure it hadn't failed.
    5. Should have stayed with Windows 7 Ultimate. Then migrated to Ubuntu.

    IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
