Windows 10 has never been as reliable as Win & since I installed it for free - you know the Microsoft push! But now getting to be a right pain - can't reliably do anything. Shuts down usually but not exclusively when I'm on Google Chrome or Facebook. Seems to have got worse since the last major update? Any thoughts?

Probably the quickest way to sort it is to clean reinstall Win 10 using the Media Creation Tool or the WinOSO download tool. Win 100 is, in my opinion, more stable than previous versions. I run 10 machines and have had no problems since updating in July/Aug 2015.

If your computer came with W7 on it and you can do a back to factory settings on it try that.
