    do I need a new pc


    Hi, I have a HP8200 destop and a Lenovo X201 Laptop and am in the process of upgrading from W7 Pro to W10 Pro on each of them. I use Avira AV.

    I've done my desktop first (latest version of W10) and installed office 2019.

    I have killed as much spyware in W10 as I can as all I want is a smooth pc running office and firefox and photo editing software that's about it.

    ok - W10 is not as fast as W7 to boot...I can live with that. What I hate is outlook is slow and I often get the message in outlook that it is not responding as its freezes and after a while wakes up again.
    Sometimes its usuable but slow compared to W7 and office 16 and they never froze.

    I'm thinking of installing office 2016 to see if its office or is it W10?

    I am even thinking of buying a new destop and laptop...but which intel processor?

    It just seems that W10 is just - well not awake... compared to W7 or doing something like calling home or something.

    I've given up on W10 photo viewer as its so slow and installed xnview which works perfectly.

    I like the functionality of Outlook but even thinking of Thunderbird or eM client or Mailbird as outlook is so slow.

    So is it my old hardware or do even the latest computers find outlook and phot slow?

    To be fair I keeps years of emails is annual pst files and I load them all...but W7 never had any issues with this?

    I've even tried Applemac and linux but I must admit I prefer Windows but I find W10 so far Windoz10.

    Any advice appreciated.

    :)

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
