Windows 7: Seven premium slow

Don't reimport the settings with WET as it is a corruption path, likely the very same one which imported corruption from Vista.

Really it is not that hard to drag your active User folders onto External and then drag their contents into the corresponding folder in your new install. If you don't want to go hunting folders, just copy the active User named folder which will get everything.

The installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device. Don't change drivers unless performance dictates you do so.

Install programs slowly over time to gauge performance after each. Don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU and can spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets.

Use a lightweight free AV like MS Security Essentials which works perfectly with Windows 7 Firewall.

When it is finished, clean and order the HD perfectly using state-of-the-art free CCleaner then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly. Do not tweak Windows 7 beyond normal system settings - it almost always comes back to bite you.

Then save a Windows 7 Backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement from stored image using DVD or Repair CD.

Windows 10 Home Premium 64bit sp1

<ALWAYS CLEAN INSTALL EVERYTHING > no matter what you can always back up setting and files etc on a flash drive back up boot drive what ever a clean install assures no mishaps occur

Even though a upgrade is succesfull you will still have a fair share of incompatable drivers you are better off doing the work on backing up and running the new os process ussually if your system is of fairspeed you can load everything in about 45 min to a hour tops including the programs you need to use av etc...... then after that maybe another hour to tune it if you are looking to make it perform
