Anybody hear from Sandy G?

Looks like the last time he visited was November 21, 2017.

That man needs a Mac like there's no tomorrow.
I keep up on W10 issues on Reddit, and there are daily Windows Update horror stories over there. Like major hard drive mfg's units suddenly becoming incompatible overnight, updates of death, and such. Obviously some PCs keep on working, but there's a lot of collateral damage going on...

He needs a ToughBook with BSD on it. Something like a CF 31.

If he's still on Windows, don't let him update. (Although it's likely MS will ignore those wishes and do it anyway.) Lots of horror stories out there.

No offense, but that just awful advice! While updates can go wrong, they aren't designed to make old computers slow down. Most of them fix bugs and close security holes.

I still use a laptop about that age (with fully up to date Windows 7) and it runs great for web surfing.

The key is up-to-date Windows 7. The problems are mostly centered around Windows 10.

Chip is correct. Up to date Windows 7 is the best!

I have a 1 year old Dell that is useless, automatic update bricked it. Wife is now without her computer, now to figure out how to reinstall the BIOS on a computer with no keyboard and no usable mouse....
