Windows 7: Is Win 10 not very good?

Is Win 10 not very good?

So I installed Win 10 dual booting with Win 7, both 64 bit on my laptop (i5, 8Gb 1T SSHD)
I quite liked 10 at first then I started getting problems...

The touchpad just freezes randomly every few seconds (it has the latest drivers)

WMP is a pain and keeps crashing and wont let me add a video location as it just keeps saying it's doing it and never finishes. I've tried re-setting and reinstalling WMP to no avail.

Using IE instead of Edge is a slow and painful experience but sometimes I want to use it.

Any ideas? At the moment Win7 is the only way I can get any work done.

Was this an upgrade ?

Did you try a clean install yet ?

Hi addram,

Yep it was a clean install.

64-bit Windows 10 Pro is a separate site that would require it to be reposted over there instead.
