You should give those things a new life :)
The good news is that Microsoft did not build your computers - they only made the programs to run them. Your computers were built by Chinese people and you are free to wipe your disk, get rid of the NSA backdoors and install whatever programs you want on them.
There are hundreds of open source alternatives to Microsoft Windows, here's a list of those that I have been using myself within the last 10 years:
- https://ubuntu-mate.org/ (my new favourite)
- http://lubuntu.net/ (for older computers)
- https://getfedora.org/ (latest bleeding edge stuff)
Once you start using any of these you have a life where there is no anti-virus software or virus scans.

Does the job well. I download movies using opera then use my lap top to put it on a flash drive plug flash drive into my smart TV and enjoy big screen free downloads.
install kodi on your laptop, then a few select plugins for it (torrent player).
run a cable from laptop to tv.
you can watch what you like instantly... no wait time.
