Not sure what that is supposed to mean. I have been using Windows for most of life's computer time. The only exception was when I was a child, didn't have a computer at home, and was learning how to use this "new" technology (Macs) that my elemetary school had just recieved. Anyways, this entire time I have never gotten a virus; at least not as far as I know. I have used 98, XP, Vista, 7, and 10 (might be forgetting one or two); so I honestly don't see what using Windows has to do with this.
No problem. If you switch to Windows 10, make sure your computer can handle it; or get a new one. My laptop was "top of the line" back when I got it in 2011 but is really slow dealing with all the background stuff Windows 10 runs. The old computers at the univeristy (the one I go to) library? Forget about them. In addition to similar issues my laptop has, they tried to keep this "nifty" feature where the desktop background would be randomly chosen from a set of pictures of teh campus. With Windows 10, it tried to do it as a slide show. This forced the desktop to reload every few seconds; making the computer nearly impossible to use. I never went back to see if they ever fixed it.
Also, be prepared for inconveniently timed updates. Oh yeah, and sometimes the update won't work and you end up witha computer that doesn't work anymore.
No, because that was never what I was trying to argue against. All I am saying is that Windows 10 seems less user friendly coming from previous Windows OSs. I have no idea how that fact would imply that an unsupported OS would remain secure.
Well Win10 is less user friendly, because it didn't purge the UI horror show that was Win8. As far as Windows UI's go, it has many improvements over Win7. Also, like most recent Win OS's, you can turn off many of the features that slow things down, you just have to work at it.
Lastly, anyone who runs Windows and thinks Microsoft gives a sh!t about non-business users having performance problems on old machines is certifiably insane. Mac OS X users actually occasionally see performance improvements when using a new OS on an older machine (assuming it is still supported). Unlike the code garbage chute that is Windows.

Agreed! VPN can also cause this issue as it is not normal. VPN provider with bad connectivity or may be wireless
