its going bye bye, if your running this what are some suggestions, i may need a new computer.
They've done it already.Upgrade to Windows 7, but don't upgrade to Windows 8/8.1.
There are some online articles as to Microsoft implementing some revisions to 8.1 to make it more like Windows 7 in terms of a start menu configuration.
Just upgrade to Windows 7 (still available).
If $ is not an issue, then consider a Macintosh.
All versions of Windows are essentially the old version with a new GUI bolted on to make it look snazzy. Drill down and you'll find the old familiar stuff, including DOS! It's always the new "look at me and ignore the man behind the curtain GUI" that buggers everything up and makes the new OS unusable. As soon as they get a handle on what it was they were trying to do in the first place and actually get it working satisfactorily they'll replace it with something else and the whole sorry process will start over again! End users are getting tired of this nonsense hence the outraged claims to have the Start button back again (something they stole from IBM's OS Warp by the way).It's my understanding that Windows 8 is essentially Windows 7 with touchscreen tech added.
