    Bare bones means exactly that, a partially assembled or unassembled kit with just the basics, you buy and install what you want in it.

    I meant that it was free for awhile

    Microsoft announced that the Windows 10 free upgrade offer would end on December 31. 2017
    Then there was another deal that ended in Jan 2018

    Now it will cost you 119 but there are ways but if you got to be really computer literate

    Also if you still have the window 7 disk you can just reinstall windows 7 or refresh it and that might get you back to when it was new.

    Just save all your personal documents and photos on a removable disk

    You will have to reinstall any program that wasn't bundled with windows

    You could run disk fragmentation and deleted junk files you no longer need

    Still it is just putting off the inevitable

    bump it up to windows 8.1 appears to be free

    Download Windows 8.1 Disc Image (ISO File)

    follow the instructions and if all else fails you should be able to revert back to windows 7

    Cut your losses, bite the bullet and buy a Mac, then run Windows in the background as an app using Parallels.
