    There's a number of things I don't like about Windows 10. Which I'll address.

    For a start I don't like how there's no option to turn off automatic Windows Updates. There's only the option to allow new updates to download and install automatically. And the other option to choose when you want to install the updates. But no option to turn off Windows Update from downloading updates. If you wanted to download and check for new updates manually.

    Why must Windows 10 security depend on Windows Defender to run occasional scans and to protect the computer, when you have your own security product such as example Norton. Which does regular frequent scans and has more regular definition updates than Windows Defender?

    If you have a high performance computer. Store apps you can get and install. Most apps have lagging and crashing issues at odd times if your in a middle of a project, watching media or playing mobile app games.

    Using third party themes that Microsoft provides. Particularly themes that has multiple wallpaper slideshows. Causes desktop to act up. If you adjust if you're a gamer. Adjusting the graphic settings from Window to Full Screen or vice versa constantly. It causes desktop screen to be chopped, leaving echo past activity screens that you have closed. Which then makes you having to come to the conclusion of restarting Windows to get it back to normal.

    As for pc games. If you play some games that aren't Windows 10 supported. You experience issues trying to get the game to load, crashing back to desktop or even internet stability issues for games that uses internet. It amazes me how Microsoft promotes Windows 10 with full of pride of them saying in certain Outlook Microsoft newsletter promotions. That they say Windows 10 is perfect for gaming. When it clearly proves the opposite.

    These are the main reasons why I don't like Windows 10.

    These are the main reasons why I don't like Windows 10.
    1) you can deter updates, tweak registry or download some Windows 10 tweaker to disable them completely.
    2) In settings you can easily disable windows defender and install Antivirus software which suits you best. WD is pretty amazing AV that gets along with Malwarebytes and Adguard.
    3) Something's wrong with your computer, I'm not claiming that mine's the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy but I've yet to see an appcrash and lag, since September 2015.
    4) Something's wrong with your computer, seriously.
    5) Windows has Compatibility mode for some time, you need to learn how to use it with older PC games and software, each needs something individually tweaked, updated or installed, or run in an emulator. My dad isn't happy because he can't play Chicken Invaders 1 and Solitaire on his Windows 10, but has accepted Chicken invaders 4 and is very happy with Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

    Windows 10 has indeed some serious issues, to me it's the drivers incompatibility, and things you mentioned are somewhat easy to solve. In my family everyone has Windows 10 installed over Windows 7, except me, I did from 8.1. Windows 10 with November update runs smoothly on all PCs in my family, even 32bit build on old guinea pig Acer Travelmate 2410 with added ram.

    As said by Demian Mioc
    1) The reg tweak can disable the updates, but I agree there should be a option to disable them
    2) Windows Defender can be turned off... I currently use ESET NOD32 it works just fine with Malwarebytes
    5) I played some games of older age (Command and Conquer Generals: Zero Hour) if I'm not mistaken they are from 2003 just fine.. With games never had a problem

    Yes Windows had some serious problems back when I was an Insider on the Slow Ring.... Now I can't point to one.
    The other points u made... Check your computer my 3 devices are running 192 wallpapers with taskbar color related with the picture and no problems. Smooth transitioning.
    Also to tested your problems with other apps I tested the Maps app and a couple of mobile games all ran smoothly on all of my devices.
    So again, check your PC, there might be a problem in there (I suggest checking the graphics first)

    Unfortunately I try to turn off Windows Defender via the setting. But it's not permanent to leave it off.

    I don't want to rely on third party programs to disable Windows Update.

    No I know it's not my pc as I've kept all my drivers up to date. Here's my specs to prove my performance. I didn't include all the DxDiag info as it's too long. I only posted the necessary information for the main things below.

    I can't post my DxDiag here. As the forum claims there's a link in my DxDiag. So I will put the basic DxDiag info here.
