  1. If rolled back to Seven from 10 do you still get nagged to upgrade?


    Hi folks,

    I have got 10 on one partition of my pc, works fine, but because some games may only work on windows 7, just wondering if I upgrade that partition from seven to 10, and find that games or other software won't work, if I then do a roll back to seven, will I still get continually nagged to upgrade to 10 again, as I notice that 10 download takes preferences over monthly updates on windows update?

    Thanks
    Joe

    :)

    Actually, we do not 'own' Windows 10. If you buy an operating system ... any of them ... on a DVD in a retail store, you 'own' the disk. What we get when we buy an operating system is a license to use it. You are actually buying a license to install and
    use the software.

    When you buy a retail computer you get an operating system with the computer. You have a license, extended to you by the manufacturer of the computer, to use the operating system that comes with the computer. These are called OEM (original equipment manufacturer) operating
    system licenses. You cannot transfer that operating system to another computer.

    Indeed, if you make too many hardware changes to the computer by upgrading the graphics card, installing an extra internal hard drive, upgrading the sound card, etc., etc., and you do too many hardware changes at one time, you can lose your activated operating
    system license (you need to upgrade 1 or 2 things at a time, and then more a few months later, etc.) If you upgrade the motherboard, then you automatically lose the activated license for the installed operating system.

    If you buy a Microsoft operating system at retail price from Microsoft or at a retail store, then you 'own' the disk it came on. You also have a license to install that operating system on one computer. You can uninstall it from that computer and then install
    it on another computer. Your full retail license allows that.

    The Windows 10 upgrade is for computers that are running Windows 7 and Windows 8. Windows 10 will use the activated license and product KEY for the existing operating system to validate your license to install and use Windows 10. We all have a year from
    July 29, 2015 to upgrade.

    You still have almost a full year to decide to upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer. I do not know definitively that you can reinstall it during this one year period if you already had it installed and then 'rolled back' to your previous operating
    system. I would guess that yes, you can install it again at any point during the one year grace period that Microsoft has established, but
    I do not know that for a fact. I have read that, once you install Windows 10, you have 30 days to 'roll back' to your previous operating system if you decide to do so. After the 30-day 'roll back' grace period has elapsed, you stay with Windows
    10.

    Please, if anyone knows the answer about uninstalling Windows 10 during the 30-day 'roll back' grace period and then installing it again during the one year upgrade grace period, please post. Also, if any thing I have said is not correct, please correct.
    Thanks.
