I need some computer advice about windows 10

I have a laptop running windows 7 the most problem free version of windows I've ever had. I know that July 29th will be the last day you can upgrade to win 10 for free. I don't know a lot about computers and I have a question or two about doing this. Is it true that after I install win 10 I have a 30 day window in which I can go back to win 7 if I don't like it. If I decide to keep win 10 what do I do if something happens and I need to reload windows 10, will I be able to download another copy or will I have to buy it? Finally any advice on how to go about installing the upgrade?

Best advice all day! Wife just got a new HP all in one Windows 10. Works good as long as you have a good virus and malware scanner running in the background. My IMac? What can I say. Don't mess with perfection.

We're a Mac family... MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, 27in iMac, two iPads, four iPhones and three Apple TVs.

On my late 2009 27in iMac as I type this and it's running the latest and greatest OS X El Capitan better than new. Happy Mac camper.

That said... Win10 is good IMO. We've got a HP Win7 machine. When I get around to turning it on one of these day I'll upgrade

Unless you have some old legacy software I'd upgrade without hesitation. As always, be sure to keep those special pictures and things you don't want lost on a separate drive.

Good luck.

Thanks Phil, I forgot about backing up my pictures and letters I wouldn't like to lose. I'm not planning on doing this for another couple of days so if anyone has any other suggestions I'd welcome them.

Clearly, Chuck is ignoring all the helpful advice from Apple users.

I have 3 computers running windows 10 and one running 10 pro. Two of them not even a month old. I have deleted all the Mcafee crap from all of them. The only protection I have is Windows defender. Not any problems ever with viruses. I have switch all of them to Google Chrome as my default Web Browser. google Chrome with Windows 10 works great. I still have the Windows 10 Edge with the ability to click over to Internet Explorer if i need to.

Windows 10 works fine for me. For those of us that aren't geeks- that just surf the net, do some word processing and look at photos, it is no different than Windows 7.
