Windows 10 activationI

Post by jstvj » Fri Oct 16, 2015 12:31 pm

I have done a clean install of Windows 10, but the Windows 7 key I have on my laptop has been rejected. However, I read somewhere that next month Microsoft will accept Windows 7 keys. Has anyone got any more details on this please ?

Download the latest Microsoft Toolkit as that will activate it.

Unlike Windows 8, I quite like 10 mainly because you can use it the virtually same as 7. However it seems very slow, especially when loading. I've also noticed that the internet connection on our mobile phones has seriously slowed, particularly while down loading from Emule. Has anyone else experienced these problems and if so, is there a fix please.

Glasnost - Test if your ISP is shaping your traffic (throttled or blocked), run without anything running (eMule / downloading).

Glasnost wouldn't work on my laptop but I am now sure BT is throttling my connection. Is there anything I can do to get around this ?

Use VPN, they can't tell what you are doing then.

Private Internet Access is only a couple of quid a month ;)
