Windows 7: WMC corrupted by adding RAM. Will W10 interfere with Win 7?

WMC corrupted by adding RAM. Will W10 interfere with Win 7?

I have a Ceton TV cable card installed in my computer. When I installed additional RAM I could no longer access my premium channels or recordings. Comcast, Geek Squad and MS forums worked on problem but I have to reinstall Windows 7 and WMC because PlayReady will not reinstall. Do I have to worry about any automatic interference from Microsoft installing Windows 10? I do not want Windows 10 right now because Windows Media Center is not included.
Thanks for your help

before you reinstall, did any of them get you to check for problem devices in device manager?

note DO NOT have that card inserted if/when you reinstall 7.

I do not believe so. The Geek Squad tech was working on my computer via remote control for around four hours so I'm not sure but I do not think so. Anyway I checked Device Manager. The card is working correctly. The explanation I received was something like the added RAM changed the frequency. It is still difficult for me to believe but with all efforts and attempts being made putting in everything fresh looks like my best bet. I don't like to do such a drastic action but I have no choice. Thanks for your comments I will make sure I follow them.

Will 2.4 Ghz mouse interfere with wi-fi?
I just purchased a 2.4 Ghz wireless mouse. Then it occurred to me that my wi-fi network also is 2.4 Ghz. Will one interfere with the other? How would I know? Would the cursor become jerky, streaming become unreliable? Or should I not worry at all?
