In the last few days, you may have noticed in your system tray (the area by your clock), a little Windows 8 looking icon (see left). If you click on it, it’s a Windows 10 upgrade window asking you to register to be on the list for the upgrade on July 29th or after.
Windows 10 will be free for the first year it is offered. This is the first time Microsoft is offering an OS upgrade for free.
If you register, Windows 10 will be downloaded to your computer when it’s released. If and when you chose to install it is up to you.
If you have Windows 7 and are completely happy with how your system runs right now, there is no need to upgrade and you can ignore the prompt from Microsoft. This is recommended for business computers. Windows 7 is supported until 2020 so you have 5 more years before you need to change.
Do not download and install the upgrade on the very first day it is available. We recommend waiting it out until any bugs are figured out.
Before doing any upgrade, you should follow some simple procedures.
Thames Computer Consulting will backup your data, install the new upgrade and make sure all drivers and programs are working for $149. Contact us now for this great deal!
