My experience has been that Windows 10 is actually a bit faster than either 7 or 8, but ONLY when you do a clean install rather than an upgrade that keeps all the baggage from the previous OS.

Since 10 is by default an upgrade unless it comes on a new system, what you have to do is upgrade, activate 10, download the installer file and burn a DVD, then wipe the hard drive and then do a clean install.

I had Windows 10 for three weeks. It was a conversion from Windows 7 PC with

Windows 10 slowed down my computer so much that I had trouble loading WORD
2010.
After three weeks of this molasses, I went to the Microsoft website looking
for a solution. It asked me if I wanted to revert to Windows 7. Heck Yes I
said. Now that I'm back on Windows 7, my PC is the fireball that it used to
be.
