As of the end of July 2016, the number-one most requested computer service by my customers over the previous year had been to fix the new and *weee-free* Windows® 10. Roughly 80% of the customers did not want Windows 10 anyway, but they were 'sort of' tricked into installing Windows 10 through the automatic updates and the pop-up ads on MSN that froze the Internet Explorer® browser and would not let the user continue using their computer online without installing Windows 10 (yes, users could use the task manager to end the program, but many computer users are not familiar enough with Windows' tools to know how to close an unresponsive IE tab).

Since most of my customers are business owners, the really big problem with Windows 10 has been the W10 upgrades themselves crashing business computers. We aren't talking about one or two programs not working perfectly, we're talking about complete computer failure as well as the businesses being completely shut down for a day or more while waiting for the computers to be repaired. I can remedy most hardware and software problems easy enough by uninstalling broken updates and drivers, but since Windows 10 forces updates and drivers on most all users, then regardless of what I do today, Windows 10 will crash itself again tomorrow.

Long story short, I now have a lot of customers who are angry at Microsoft, and I'm the one that has to try to fix what isn't fixable. My customers are stressed and frustrated, I'm stressed and frustrated, and there is only one plausible solution: uninstall Windows 10.

HOW TO FIX WINDOWS 10 : uninstall the puppy! Reinstall Windows 8, 7, or even Vista or XP if you can, but at present, since it is not possible to use Windows 10 Home and Professional online without accepting all updates regardless of how an update might trash your computer, then the one and only solution is to not use Windows 10. There, problem solved!

The rash of Windows 10 problems had grown so prevalent amongst my customers that I seriously considered refusing all Windows 10 service, but softy me, I am concerned for my customers, so I still try to keep their businesses alive.

Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 also had a lot of compatibility problems when they were first released, but in time they became reasonably solid for almost all hardware. If history repeats itself, then we can expect Windows 10 to eventually become more compatible with the relatively few pieces of hardware that are not yet supported, and the current incompatibility problems will mostly get solved. Until then, if Windows 10 is not doing what you need, then simply use a different version of Windows.

For me, I got a lot of smiles from my customers when the Windows 10 frown went away. ;-)
