Should I upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows XP?

Episode 1299 (1:10:39)

Chris from Lakewood, CA
Windows 10 Start Menu

Chris is still using Windows XP, but his computer is slowing down and his internet connection isn't that great. Time Warner says that if he upgrades to Windows 10, it'll give him faster internet performance. Is that true? Leo says it's true that the older a computer gets, the slower it becomes. He calls it "kruft." Leo backs up his data, reformats the drive and reinstalls Windows once a year. Chris can do that and upgrade to Windows 10, sure, but Leo advises going to Windows 7 if he can. If he gets a new computer, he will get it with Windows 10. It'll be cheaper and faster than when he bought the XP machine.
