    It's something you don't have to wrestle with anymore Yiannis, skip it and go to Windows 11 instead.  : )

    Windows 11 has some pretty stringent requirements.  My laptop is only 2 years old (Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz, 16 GB of RAM, SSD drive, TPM 2.0) and it doesn't meet the requirements for Windows 11 according to their PC Health Check app.

    Same here Sam. My PC is only 17 months old and also got the thumbs down from the health check app because of TPM 2.0.

    I did a bit of hunting on the web to find out a little more, then went into my bios to switch on a secure boot option, and voila, I got the thumbs up from the health check.

    Windows 11 is not due out until later this year, so hopefully they will rethink the system requirements.

    Let's hope so.  I did see that Microsoft has pulled the PC Health Check app from their website, so maybe that's a good sign.

    What?! You serious?? Looks like we're going back to the time when your PC used to become a relic of the Stone Age after barely 2-3 years of usage. LOL

    Anyways, I hope they restore the Classic Start Menu on W11. This is what I hate the most about W10 and never get used to not having it.
