Customer Question
I got driver update and...
I got driver update and slim cleaner and now can't restore to an earlier time. I don't see any usual choices and my favorites are gone and can't deal with the 10 version that doesn't make sense. It's not responding to anything in the usual way I use Windows and I don't have my programs to choose from or favorites online and it even just freezes when I'm trying to do Internet searches and I just want to return to an earlier time but I don't even see that option now. Choices and buttons are different.

Hi, and welcome to Just Answer! My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you with this.

If I understand correctly, you JUST upgraded to Windows 10, is that correct? And you want to go back to your previous version of Windows?

My Expert answered my question promptly and he resolved the issue totally. This is a great service. I am so glad I found it I will definitely use the service again if needed.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
