How do I replace Windows 10 with Windows 7?

Windows 10

After three calls tonight, and three "disconnections," I am still having a problem with Windows 10. Explorer is not reliable, sometimes devices connect, sometimes they don't. Explorer is also very slow in searching any files. Computers should work out of the box. Drives don't connect, devices don't connect, music won't rip, etc. I consider Apple the devil and anti-American. In spite of that , these problems with Windows 10 have me considering buying a Mac. Please email me with instructions on how to get a fresh Windows 7 64 bit image, so I can get rid of this disastrous Windows 10. I do not have the time nor patience to call customer support again. Check my call logs and all of the disconnections.

Changed Permissions and Nothing is Working (No internet, virus protection is not working, etc)

Windows 10

Hello guys, Please help me!! I have no idea what I did to my computer. I am sorry for my ignorance on this matter. So I was trying to install a program on my computer. During the installation, a pop up said that it did not have permission to create a temporary directory in the C drive. I then googled a bit and read about right clicking on the folder and changing its permissions. I tried on the program installation folder first which failed. Eventually, I went to the C drive folder and right clicked bringing up its permissions. I removed all group users except for the Lenovo PC user (which I assumed was me). When I restarted my computer, none of my apps were being recognized. For example, I could not open my PDF's or my sound files. My internet connection was not working. When I ran a scan command via the command window (which I read on google) it said that the network is being disabled by the drivers. My start menu was not even coming up. I then googled more and read about running regedit in the command window. I did not know that it was dangerous running this command. Pulling up the registry I navigated to Microsoft > Windows. I then right clicked on windows and gave full access ( I believe) to users. After I realized that my start menu was back up again. Also my PDF's were showing up. However, my internet is not working. I can't even turn on my virus protection. When I try to turn it on, it says it timed out. My computer screen keeps starting refreshing itself. I have no idea how to fix this problem. Things I tried 1) I tried doing a system restore to a previous point. However, when I restarted the system, my internet was still not working and it seemed the permissions did not reset. 2) I tried entering the secedit to restore default permissions as described below. Still it did not work. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-to-restore-default-security-permissions/ab58f918-da72-42c0-ba71-161d52b73d46 3) I see an option to download something here but I have no access to the internet. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-to-reset-all-user-permissions-to-default/9da312d2-c99b-4283-a275-e74d93dcc366 Your advice would be greatly appreciated! -dreamchaser

Windows Insider program selection in "Settings" is unreliable

Windows 10

After an initial boot, when I go to Settings>Update and Security>Windows Insider Program, it says I am set to receive insider downloads on the fast track. If I close out the Settings window, then several minutes later, reopen it to the Windows Insider program I get a message that says there is a problem and a "fix it" selection appears. When selected, it says it cannot be fixed. When I reboot, it appears to fix the problem but after a few minutes, the problem reappears and the Windows Insider Program is not available. This sequence is repeatable, i.e. the first try after a reboot works fine, but the second try several minutes later fails to produce the Windows Insider Program availability Please provide a solution as I have been an Insider for over a year and would like to continue to use that capability

How do I get rid of pause before logon in Windows 10?

Windows 10

Before the beautiful pictures started showing up in the background I was able to either click my mouse or pad and immediately enter my user id and password. Now it seems that I'm being forced to look at the picture for a few seconds, or fore more than a couple / three clicks, before I can enter my login information. Thanks for the pictures, but losing control of my keyboard and how fast I can things done, is not a way of ingratiating the customer base. So, how do I disable that annoying 'feature', please?

Bluetooth Stopped Working After Win10 Cumulative Update

Windows 10

My Bluetooth device, a Fitbit dongle also known as a Fitbit Base Station, last communicated with my Fitbit in the morning of 12 Jan 2017. Later that day, a Win10 cumulative update was installed. Since then the Fitbit Connect s/w no longer syncs with the Fitbit via the dongle. I have tried suggestions on the web, including making sure the driver was up to date, with no success. The current driver is 10 years old, but when Windows searches for a more recent driver, it says the driver is up to date. When I click on "Driver Details" in Control Panel, this message is displayed: "No driver files are required or have been loaded for this device." I have found more current driver files and pointed Windows to the folder where they reside, but Win10 again says the driver is already up to date. The Control Panel (Devices and Printers) says the dongle is working properly, and lists it as an "Unspecified" device. I think this means it is being recognized, but not being recognized as a Bluetooth device. The Device Manager fails to list the dongle. There is no "Bluetooth" or "Other" device category which I think means the Device Manager isn't recognizing the dongle at all. The Action Center lacks the "Bluetooth" button. When I click on "All Settings" in the Action Center, then "Network and Internet", then "Airplane Mode", under Wireless Devices "Wireless Network Connection" has an OFF/ON button, but the same button for "Bluetooth" is missing. Any ideas what I can do to get Bluetooth back?
