Windows 10 Upgrade:
To upgrade or
not to upgrade...
In early June 2015, Microsoft sent out an update to computers running
Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 which caused a white Windows logo to
appear in the the icon group near the clock.
this icon opens a notification window that allows you to reserve
your free copy of Windows 10 which will automatically download into
a queue within a few days. The user can then install the
Windows 10 upgrade after being notified that the upgrade is ready.
This is a free upgrade which according to Microsoft, the free
upgrade window ends on July 29, 2016.
advising most customers with Windows 7 machines to NOT necessarily
do the upgrade unless they want to pay a pro to get the computer to
work like it did before the upgrade. The upgrade DOES change how you get to things on your computer. If your
system is working fine, my advice is to not fix what isn't broken
unless you are prepared to have me iron things out for you if
there are problems with the upgrade or if the end result isn't to
your liking. If you are having issues with your Windows 7
operating system, "upgrading" to Windows 10 might not help.
cases, the manufacturers are not supporting the upgrade on certain
models and unless you check the driver and download page for your
model at your computer manufacturer's website, you will not know if
the upgrade works on your computer until after the upgrade and
things don't work right.
For customers who
currently have computers running 8 and 8.1, it's best to do it
especially while the upgrade is being offered for free.
If you need help with
this upgrade, contact me.

New computers are now being shipped with Windows 10 and let's just
say that it's different than what you are used to. If you want
it to look and behave more like Windows 7, I can set it up and configure it so that
it is very much like the
operating system that you already know how to use.

Cryptolocker and its variants are a type of ransomware that
encrypts/corrupts your files.
Currently, there is no cure to regain access to your encrypted files
besides paying the ransom. The malware can be removed but
removal should not be attempted if you intend to pay the authors the
ransom they are asking. There are passive and proactive protection solutions.

reasonably-priced solutions to a multitude of computing and technology
issues. I have a creative can-do attitude but at the same time, I
can also see the last domino fall and will recognize early on when a

My diagnosis is free (less

windows. Interacting with either can cause the installation of malicious files and system
changes that bring automatic web page redirects, more false virus
warnings, loss of Internet connection, etc..
attempting to repair a malware infection on your own,
please read this warning note. I use my own systematic technique
which succeeds without data loss, file damage or system changes where
others may tell you a reformat/reinstall is necessary. I can
usually completely reverse even the worst infection during a house-call which is
the same rate as a pickup & return.
