Windows 10 – Free Upgrade Ends July 29th – Should You Make The Move

The offer to upgrade to Windows 10 ends on July 29th and after July 29th if you want to upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8 / 8.1 it will cost roughly $179 ( depends where you buy it from ).

If you are running Windows 8 / 8.1 , I think it is a no brainer to go to Windows 10 ,which is a much improved experience on Window 8 / 8.1.

If you are running Windows 7 it really depends if you are happy where you are as it will be supported till Jan 2020 so by that time you will probably have changed your computer.

The nag to make the move to Windows 10 should end after July 29th and will probably be removed via an update.

What To Do If You Are Going To Upgrade ?

  • Uninstall your antivirus if it is anything other than the one supplied by Microsoft via the uninstall tool supplied by the maker of the antivirus 
  • Do a backup 
  • Remove any bogus programs such as – registry cleaners , “speed up my pc” programs 

What Do I Think Of Windows 10 ?

I like it now that all the issues have been worked out.

  1. Richard, just a query. I have upgraded to Windows 10 and have had no issues. Good programme. Mum and sister still run XP. Can they upgrade to 10?

      No they cant upgrade and it is probably better for them to get new computers with 10 installed , they should not be going on the internet with those computers running XP
