I also have your problem or very similar but for windows 7 64bit, and oddly enough I too have installed it very recently

I am very interested to see what kind of answers we get.

I was reluctant to install win 10 but they kept on and on. now sorry I did, can't download anything. Takes an age to boot up. all sorts of problems. Slow PC etc. What an absolute joke.

My Windows 10 laptop boots up in less than 7 seconds from a cold start to the desktop so if you having issues with slow boots and other problems, it may be that the computer is just too old to handle a newer OS or you have it set up wrong. I also don't have any problems downloading so it's definitely not Windows fault you are having issues.

After you installed Windows 10, did you verify all the drivers are installed and working properly? You might try going to the computer manufactures website and getting the latest WiFi and Ethernet drivers from them instead of using the generic ones that get installed from Microsoft..

What happens exactly when you try to download, any error messages?

Just because your system tells you to get Windows 10 does not mean that all of its hardware will support Windows 10. Try as mentioned downloading all of the newest drivers for your system via another machine onto a flash drive. Preferably Windows 10 drivers, but if not available, get the latest ones that are available.
If this does not work, list all of your hardware and/or your system make and model number so we can see what hardware you have and see if it is reasonable that you could run Windows 10 on it. This is why it is important for you to have your own post because many answers will be hardware specific.
DO NOT do a Disk Clean Up!! I understand that within a certain period of time (like 30 days) if you do not do a disk clean up, you can still roll it back to your original operating system. You can Google for the details or someone will probably post a link to the details for you eventually.

Note: I just realized the age of this post which is why you need to create your own post rather than hijacking another's post, so you can get answers directed to you specifically. I hope that the OP has already found their answers.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
