I agree with Gene. Clean install is the best approach. I have been running
Win 10 since early beta and am still part of the Insider Preview group. I
have had few issues with either the betas or the release candidate. Running
on a Core i5, 8 GB ram, Office 2016. Works like a charm.

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.
