Time is Running Out to Upgrade to Windows 10

- TempNow, you don’t HAVE to, but if you want to take advantage of Microsoft’s offer to upgrade to 10 for free (from Windows 7 or 8), July 29 is your last chance (and don’t wait until the last minute.)

If you decided to upgrade to Windows 10 AFTER July 29, you’ll have to BUY Windows 10 which will run between $100-$120 depending on where you get it. 

Most of my clients who upgrade on their own end up calling me because they don’t know what to do with it or just want to go back – which is NOT necessary. 

My clients who have me assist them with the upgrade have ALL been happy.  I’ll make sure it’s all correct and walk you through using Windows 10 (it’s really easy after a 5 minute orientation.)

Windows 7 is supported through 2020 and Windows 8 through 2013, so don’t feel like you have to.  I really like Windows 10 and frankly Windows 7 looks pretty old to me these day.  Windows 10 IS BETTER.  I’ve only run into a couple of issues after over 100 upgrades.  If you absolutely HATE Windows 10 after upgrading, Microsoft even gives you 30 days to go right back to where you were before you upgraded with no loss of data.

If you would like me to assist you with the upgrade, PLEASE don’t wait until the last week of July – I fear a rush and want to be sure I get everyone in.  For $75 I’ll get up upgraded, lock down the privacy settings, make sure your software and hardware are all working and walk you through the start menu, which is the biggest change.  All your programs will be THE SAME after the upgrade, so no worries at all there.

Call and schedule a time if you want to upgrade and I’ll take care of you.

Yes, Reset Your Carbonite Password–It’s OK

imageIf you’ve received this email, it’s ok.  Carbonite detected some strange activity on their network and to be safe, they reset everyone’s password.  So it’s ok when you get this email in your inbox.  Click on the green “Reset Your Password” button and change your password. 

I want you to know that THIS is what a GOOD companies do when they see something suspicious.  They are being proactive and they are protecting you.  This is the kind of company you want protecting your data.  You don’t want to find out from someone else and then the company reluctantly sends a message because you already know.

This is just one more reason why I recommend Carbonite for your off-line backups.  These are good people.
