    I upgraded today. Slow boot up, less responsive, heats up and kinda laggy too. Never happened with Win 8.1 running on it. So what do you guys say? Get back to 8,1 or what?

    Yeah, get back to 8.1. Your laptop might not be up to snuff for the next level.

    Why is that so? This is 8GB Ram, COREI7 4th Gen with Nvidia Geforce.

    I know what a clean install is. I didnt choose to do so. Im currently using 523Gb of my 889GB. Its going to take me ages to backup. I have all of my work stuff and all other data in it. I wanted it to be the same. Now a clean install will change everything :/

    My Surface Pro 2 is having a similar issue. Heats up, speeds fans to high, discharges the battery fast, and takes longer to charge. You don't say what make and model your laptop is, so I suggest as a start, check the manufacturer's site for every Win 10 update you can find and install them. This may be a simple driver/firmware/software issue that may be resolved with the appropriate update. Your manufacturer may even not have it ready yet, so keep tabs on it. If it's a MS thing, then assume they're working on it, and check for updates frequently there too. (NOTE: You could probably report this to MS with your system info just so they're aware)

    On the safe side, back up you most valuable data just in case (I like being cautious).

    Instead of a clean install, you can try a reset (from the setting app). Note that you will lose your installed applications.

    Yah, the first few hours, the computer does alot of intensive things to organize files such as indexing.

    I said that because you sound half way there already just posing the question the way you did; like you've given up. I suspect you just had a bad install. A clean install would be best then move your data files, pictures, docs and such from Windows_old back to your fresh install of Windows 10.

    My SP1 was the same way at first. Task manager showed alot of heavy background tasks running with high drive access too. After a few updates downloaded & reboot things settled down back to normal. File search indexing took a little longer but also got caught up. I'm gonna clean stuff manually first before updating my Surface 3 or my SP3. I think some of the thrashing on the SP1 was the crazy file library hacks I had in place.

    Are all app updates finished? Happened to me too but I noticed that apps are updating so I let it be and after a while problem solved. If it still persist maybe try to do a clean install by Factory resetting Windows 10. Backup files first.

    My roommate is experiencing high cpu usage from antimalware I saw in task manager after going from 7 - 10. I remember I had the problem when I was on 8 before going to 8.1 but high cpu usage can heat it up.

    I upgraded from windows 7 and my laptop takes forever to boot up and it's on the slow side and yes my laptop is hotter than normal.

    W7 was so much faster.

    Even my verizon email account doesn't show all the tabs and have to use firefox for my email.

    Plus the ads using the edge are all over the place.

    I upgraded to W10 and I somehow feel the OS is not really "finished" (bug free).

    Simple things like right clicking on the desktop takes a long time, cortana crashes sometimes, notification center does not show settings every time I open it.

    So, I am not really surprised if your laptop heats up after the upgrade. I would suggest you perform a clean install but then you shouldn't even be doing that and MS should have ensured a good and bug-free upgrade.

    Yes yes yes..right click doesn't work good either..sometimes it works but you have to do it several times for it to take.

    this happened to me when i suddenly thought it is better to just let onedrive download all the content i have on the cloud.

    so my guess is that your ondrive is downloading a huge amounts of data, just give it a couple of days until it finishes...

    also lots of people say fiddling with the graphic drivers fixes stuff lol you could try that...

    in the mean time, set it on high performance.

    oh you said it, Nvidia Geforce....remove those drivers, and disable it for now. that's what i would do.

    It seems like more people are having problems with the nVidia drivers. Have you tried to download the latest?
    And, I Think there is a lot of stuff going on right after the first install (indexing, cleaning, updating etc etc). Let it sit for an hour or two.

    (btw, I had other problems and have uninstalled W10, mainly tablet related. But If you are about to uninstall. Do it within 30 Days...)
