I was running Win 7 Ultimate and on Friday Microsoft sent a notification to say that my OS was no longer supported.

So, I decided to install Service Pack 1 on Friday night. I have been installing all the security updates issued over the past 7 years.

It took 2 hours to download and 6 hours to replace 107,085 files. :rolleyes:

I have a copy of Windows 10 but can't use it. The software that runs the fan on my CPU cooler won't run under Win 10 and there is no update for that software. I have a tower cooler on the CPU with a fan that changes speed depending on the temperature of the CPU.

Now it takes twice as long to boot and three times as long to shut down.

This makes no sense. I've installed every security update issued over the past 7 years. This just popped up.
