    How would you rate Windows 7

    All I will say is that I am using Win 7 and I also have Win 10 on my computer, Win 10 is pretty confusing and I have to revert to Win 7 anytime I am stumped. Win 10 may be superior to Win 7 but I don't think I will be alive to figure out it out. Still vote for Win 7 but I am trying.

    Thanks BigBear. I purchased the Surfboard Modem about a year ago at Best Buy if they are so out of date, I am surprised they are still selling that old of stock. Will drop by Comcast.

    Thanks BigbearJedi, what you have said, is so far above my pay grade that I will scrap doing anything. Chances of me screwing up are too great. Will just plod along with Win 7 and wait until my computer fails.

    Can I have Win 7 and Win 10?

    Thank you for your response. Now, what do I need to do to do this? Do I need to buy a program? Do I virtual program Win 7 or Win 10? As you can see I know nada.

    Can I have Win 7 and Win 10?

    Can I have both and switch between each? I have tried Win 10 and get very frustrated with it and have gone back to Win 7 several times. What do I need to do to have both on the computer, do I need to put one on a floppy?
