I wont mind going new but not the latest due to unknown issues . I won't mind upgrading as long as I can still keep most of my stuff on file.

Do a backup of all of your files and directories and than you can do a fresh installation of Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia.
I back up all of my files to an external HDD.

A friend of mine has been running Linux Mint 18.3 for a while now and it runs great.

You're Welcome.

Don't forget to check the integrity of the .iso file before you burn it to CD or USB.

Let us know how your fresh installation goes:-
