July 29th is the cutoff for upgrading to Windows 10 for free ( they will not be charging after , by the way ) so here are 10 tips for you to consider.

  1. Windows 8 – 8.1 – make the move – Windows 8 – 8.1 was horrible for the average user
  2. Windows 7 – you will still be supported till January 2020 – there is no rush if all is working for you
  3. You can stop the upgrade to Windows 10 and the nagging from Microsoft – GWX Control PanelNever 10 
  4. Uninstall your brand name antivirus – it can cause issues during the upgrade
  5. If your hard drive has issues – the upgrade may not work – you may need a new hard drive
  6. If you have malware virus infections on your computer – the upgrade to Windows 10 may not work 
  7. If you have ” mystery ” ” bogus” 3rd party programs on your computer – the upgrade to Windows 10 may not work and can cause issues afterwards 
  8. Some of your older programs can disappear as they not be compatible with Windows 10 
  9. Backup your data – you should do this anyway – before making the upgrade
  10. It takes time – if it appears frozen when doing the upgrade be aware that i had one upgrade take 26 hours – be patient
