Windows 7

I really didn't like Windows 10 so have stuck with 7 however, I'm now having problems asscociated with its age.

My e-mail system often has gliches and Firefox is often faulty which I suspect is down the age of my OS.

Yesterday, I got a message from Skype 'Skype no longer supports the version of Windows you are using', has anyone else had issues like this?

Looks like I will finally have to upgrade at some point soon.

Hi Andy... had no choice I had to get a new laptop, and it had the dreaded W10 on it.

However, the computer shop installed a wee free programme called Classic Shell, which makes your computer screen look and act like W7, with the start button and task bar etc. Been using it now for several years and forget I've actually got W10 on this machine LOL

Here's a link: http://classicshell.net/

That's great to know Delia, I'll ask the guys in the shop about it.

Many thanks.
