    Bought a new computer for business and do not want to run windows 10 because of privacy issues and stability of platform. Would like to uninstall windows 10 and clean install windows 7 and would like to know if this is possible?

    If it is a very recent purchase I would ask the company you bought it from, to see if they can downgrade it.

    Yes you can. But you should not because it will lag, it won't be supported by Microsoft-so there will be security threat and you won't get any universal apps or FREE OFFICE 2016.
    Plus, I am using Windows 10 on my tablet and there are no stability issues what so ever.

    Certainly it is possible. All you need is the media and a key.

    I would not recommend a retro install to 7 either. Check the Support Lifecycle: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...&wa=wsignin1.0

    If you have privacy concerns with Windows 10, this may help: Your Guide To Windows 10 Privacy Settings Although I think that many of the so called "issues" are really just the modern cloud computing phenomena being examined and the TOS for 10 being published. Most users give up far more data on their mobile every day. YMMV.
