going back to 7

December 26th, 2012 - 09:24 am ET by Drew | Report spam
Recently I upgraded the wife's computer to win 8 and unfortunately it is
too unstable to keep. (a long long story) I am now forced to return it
to win 7. First off I did a complete backup of all before I upgraded to
win 8. The question is since I am forced to take it back to 7 will I
have to download all the updates to win 7 (sp1+) or will it restore that
after installing win 7 and restoring the backup? No sense in discussing
the possibility of a workaround to keep win 8 as Microsoft worked on it
for 3 days before they gave up and advised me to return it to 7. Hell I
got it more stable than they could. The problem is it cannot be
restarted without crashing and cannot be updated without crashing. If I
run it without anything like that it runs fine. Problem is I cannot even
put any protection on it without a serious crash at all.
