My oldest PC is a 2002'ish home built machine AMD processor running WinXP. It's S-L-O-W processor is actually faster than machines with MUCH faster processors "faster" with bloated newer version of winbloated OS.

I replaced a power supply and updated the DVD umm... no it gets to stay as is no upgrades.

10 is a lot faster than XP if you want faster, but the old computer probably wont work with it, and if it does, it won't for long.

I'm afraid Seti is right. I've seen lots of video's on Youtube explaining the advanced setting that are all checked when installing 10 onto your computer.

By leaving all those settings checked, you are actually sending misc. data to Micro$oft.
