Microsoft are determined to get you to install / upgrade to Windows 10 and will soon move it to the automatic updates so it will be increasingly harder for you to avoid.
So how do you determine whether you should install Windows 10?
- Do you have older software that you rely on – do some research online to make sure it runs in Windows 10
- Did you upgrade your current computer from Windows Vista or Windows XP to Windows 7 – you may have issues
- Is your hard drive in good condition – Windows 10 can have issues installing when your hard drive has issues.
- Does Windows update work for you now ? If not you maybe infected with malware
Before you install Windows 10 , backup your data , including your email (pst file if on Outlook )
Does it take time to install Windows 10 – yes it can take a couple of hours so be patient.
