I really miss Windows 7.

Since the "upgrade" to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 7 Pro, my Revolve 810 has been a real PITA. 

It must be rebooted or shut down and the battery removed because of lockups at least once a day. The wireless drops out randomly now as well. My Chrome browser has developed a lot of issues where it has to be killed and restarted. This is reminiscent of when Microsoft killed Windows 2000 and we were stuck with another lousy O/S.

I've run as many HP diagnostics I can find to make sure the drivers are correct, etc. I hate to get rid of this really great little notebook.

I'm open to suggestions, except the ones that tell me to replace it!

Re: I really miss Windows 7.

Thanks very much for this. I finally got around to running this routine and found pagefile.sys was manually set to zero, something I would never do. I’m sure this fix will provide a substantial boost in the performance.
