      my new computer is a 7020 Dell PC with  8GB memory 500GB HHD. I really don’t care about the spieing. Never heard of anyone being hurt by their info collection. I have not had to set up a computer for 13 years so it is going to be a trial for me.

    • I am using a 2009 HP 6000 series PC with 1TB HHD,6GB Ram and Win 7 SP1 Home Premium with NO SPYWARE on it .  WIN 10 is absolutely loaded with spyware (just about every update).  One cannot avoid them and the Gov’t being live in your domain. Us old persons can’t always learn new tricks so we will loose out.

    • in reply to: Windows 7 PC gets very sluggish #234730

      I have the same sluggish problem. I am running a 2009 HP Pavalion P6000 series with a 1TB HHD, and Win 7 Home Premium 64bit, AMD quad core processor, 6 GB Memory. Is there no clear cut answer?

    • in reply to: Weird hibernation state on reboot attributed to Win7 patches #170497

      I am in group B and installed the security only update on my OLD win 7 AMD machine and have had none of the afore stated problems.  It must be embedded in the monthly rollup only. As to the MS attitude toward Win 7, they put the half baked updates out and we can take it or leave it.

    • in reply to: 2018 new method to run the Windows Updates?! #160983

      It would be great if you posted what security suite you are using! My Norton Premium doesn’t have that.


    • I have been getting updates for a long time on my antique computer and none are checked , no matter what category they fit into. HP, 2009 Win7 SP1 x64.

    • MrBrian, PKCano , Woody and others:  I have a HP p6520y Desktop with (4) AMD Athlon II X 4 635 Processors and 6 GB RAM, running the original October 2009 Win 7 SP1 x 64 System . I have had no BSOD’s, or any other related problems, yet the updates to remedy the AMD processor problem appeared on Windows update as important. Hope this bit of info helps rather than muddies the water.

    • To the common everyday desktop user (2009 Win7 SP1 x64) –  what is the danger – using AMD with R440 motherboard?

    • in reply to: Where, Oh Where is Windows 7??? #155676

      I, too, have had a relatively smooth run with my windows 7 sp1 x64 home premium desktop. The only problems I hanve had were caused by me, not MS. Although, MS has made it very difficult to pick and choose updates.

    • in reply to: What is the home computer user to do? #155595

      Those are just a few questions that I, personally have. I, for one, use my desktop computer for everything. I do have an android motorola G4 phone and it is in use most of the time. Desktop runs: windows 7 sp1 x64 home premium 2009 model, and my phone runs the latest Android Nuegat 7 OS.
