Probably easy new pc builder question.
My system posts and I'm ready to transfer my key and start all the install and update steps. When I transfer my key, will I still be able to use my first computer until I finish this process. I'm sure there are things I'll get to enjoy scratching my head over ( :) ) and I'd like to know that I'll still have it to use. G

Reinstalling Win 7
Good afternoon, I have a 10 year old Aspire 5741 laptop that I updated to win 10 that I wish to revert back to Win 7. I found the MS site for the recovery info to put to usb and provided the MS product code from the bottom of the machine which MS won't accept as per; "The product key you entered appears to be for software pre-installed by the device manufacturer. Please contact the device manufacturer for software recovery options" I'm 83 years of age and don't understand why this is necessary as I bought from a reputable retail chain here in New Zealand. I did go to the Acer site and after spending over 4 hours trying to make sense of it all I'm finally losing the will to live!! I'm desperately hoping you kind folks can help me out here please but I ask that you kindly bear in mind I'm very much a novice so nothing too technical please. Hoping you van help, kind regards....... ps. I do have recovery discs I made back when I bought the laptop but unsure what to do with them,
My screen went blank (was blue) and went I finally got it back, I got a error message--memory management. And it said to contact windows.com/stopcode. Well they won't do anything unless you pay them. I have only had this computer for a couple of months. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions.

A pain in the... border WALL
How do you keep a group of hackers off your net. Off your pc,s tablets, phones. Man. They ripped up my last laptop. I can bypass the har ddrive with an exterior one. My keyboarding sucks right just now. Ihave to wathc the screen. My cursor fly/jumps everywhere. My settings in every thing I have set up has chg'd. No emails, to missed ph calls. I know alot of things about them But justnot what to do to stop them. EXCEPT Shut it all down. Turn off my internet. Shut down the Desktop, laptop, and tablets. Just use my our phones. It will make them mess with me big time at first. Threats Lots of threats. Turn on WiFi Turn off firewqll settings, turn on file sharing. My Laptop is barely 5 years old and the hard drive looks like a 90 yo bladder. Picture that??? Any advise on how to get rid of them. Monday Blues
Memory Use in low-memory devices
With each feature update (since 1607, at least), Windows 10 uses more memory (and disk space, but that's another day). It's getting to where 50-60% of RAM in a tablet/2-in-1 (2GB RAM, Win10 Home 32-bit) or older laptop (4GB RAM, Win10 Home 64-bit) is taken for a multitude of services and other tasks most of which just site there - seldom actually using CPU cycles after system startup. Yes, we should buy new computers with more RAM, on a never-ending cycle. Sorry, not going to happen in the real world where budgets are tight. What Windows needs is to be more cognizant of what the machine it's running on has available, and adjust its running footprint to match. A good rule of thumb might be: 50% of RAM when not running apps explicitly opened by the user is probably too much. If I don't have a lot of RAM, load those services only when they're needed and unload them afterward. Yes, that would slow down things when the services are needed and have to be reloaded, but the overuse of RAM is slowing things down anyway by pushing things into swap when any significant app is opened. Using swap is a real pain with spinning rust, but not great with eMMC or slower SSDs either. Look in Task Manager sometime and note how much is sitting there at the bottom of the process list nearly all the time, using no CPU once the system has stabilized following startup; those tasks and services should be candidates for killing during normal use. At minimum (assuming a reasonably-sized C: drive), those should be swapped out after a certain amount of "dead" time without waiting for something else to be loaded that forces the issue (and slows the load of a task that is actually needed). ???
