  1. Anti-Malware Toolkit 2.0.2 has been released! 2.0.2 - 2020-09-25 [New] Option to delete downloaded files on close. [Changed] Windows 7 will explicitly use the last supported TLS, version 1.2. [Changed] Right click menu is now Run instead of Install.
  2. Don't worry about drivers from any OEM. Let Windows Update handle the drivers. The name of the hardware helps when you have an error, so you can be directed to the manufacturer's website for drivers if need be. Though really you shouldn't need it, Windows 10 handles it just fine with a clean install. Just wipe the SSD clean by deleting all partitions and installing to disk 0. I've literally seen Windows Vista hardware running Windows 10.
  3. You have not answered my question. I've asked what software you're running. At best the answer provided is extremely vague and as such, an accurate response cannot be provided. Office is not really limited to just Windows 7, as @mooms said above, post 7 -> 10 upgrade, Office will still run. The only issue is that some versions such as 2010 are EOL/no longer supported. According to the Windows Compatibility Center, Office 2013, Office 2010, and Office 2007 are compatible with Windows 10. If your workplace is unable to provide you with a copy of Office 2016/2019 or Office 365, try using LibreOffice - which is compatible with Microsoft Office. Your best course of action would be the standard practices of backing up all your important data first and foremost, such as your User folder. I would then format the Windows 7 drive, install Windows 10 on the SSD, and enter the key at some point. After you're on Windows 10 1909 (current as of this post), get all the necessary updates, then transfer your backed up data back onto the computer, and reinstall your needed software. The reason I recommend this method is because on very rare occasions I have seen minor issues when upgrading from an existing Windows 7/8/8.1 to 10. The clean install would work best. Of course, the better your hardware (we are lacking that information in this thread) the better your experience will be.
  4. If I may, what software are you running that needs a certain Windows 7 and Office version? I've upgraded so many people from 7 to 10 with only very minor issues.
  5. Just call Microsoft and explain what happened. Then just use a VM. Why not just use Windows 10 itself for your needs?
  6. You should be fine doing it. Worst case scenario, look for a Windows 7 OEM key for cheap.
  7. This is not true. Prior to 1909 you could still install Windows 10 with or without a Windows 7/8/8.1/10 key. Even if you install without the key you can still add it via Activation. Why not boot Windows 10 and run a VM with WIndows 7 inside it? There's also free Windows VMs that expire after 90 days.
  8. 4.0.x has been running super smooth for me. The background tasks when I first upgraded made it a bit slow. Just kept the site offline until they finished. Fast load times too.
  9. Considering this is the only post/topic that user has made, I would think it would be acceptable to delete the account since there have been no contributions. Thus, no content loss.

    Upgrade issues

    The reasons 4.0 was slow was because the background processes take up a lot while processing all sorts of data. That is, posts, threads, and all things that need to be updated to the new format. My site felt sluggish during the process too though I believe now it would perform much better.
  11. Sorry you're so upset that a memory optimizer does not in fact optimize memory or performance. In fact those programs do the exact opposite, they hurt performance. I have provided the links that have more than enough proof that these things only hurt your computers performance. Mark Russinovich is the maker of the Systernals Suite. This man knows so much about Windows and it's internals that Microsoft hired him to work for them because of the excellent work he has done. Memory optimization has been a long discussed topic, which has also had comprehensive research going into it. Mark is not the first to write an article about why these programs are garbage. But hey, it's your system and if you want to hurt the performance of your computer; by all means. Just don't say you weren't warned.
  12. I would recommend people pass this over and avoid it just like all the other garbageware RAM "optimizers". Per Mark Russinovich Source: http://www.windowsit...timization-hoax
  13. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968279 You pretty much have to format and reinstall. Perfect reason not to use nLite/vLite.
  14. Been final for about a month now. No issues at all with it either.
