Another customer called me today and said that his computer was in the process of installing the UN-WANTED Windows 10 up-grade. He tried to stop it but couldn't, so he shut the computer down. Now the computer will not even boot. I could re-format his three year old computer, but instead he is just buying one of my All-in-Ones (cheaper for him and he gets a new computer with Windows 10 all prepped and ready to go) If this un-wanted Windows 10 happens to you, let it finish and when everything is working, roll it back to your old windows. You will have a better chance of everything working as expected. Just thought you would like to know.

If you positively do not want 10, look at this:

I have followed the advice of Steve at GRC for many years re security. He also has a very enjoyable and educational podcast with Leo Laport at twit.tv (look for Security Now)

This does work, at least for the two computers that I put it on several months ago. They insist on keeping Windows 7 for as long as they can. We actually have it installed on one of my test computers. WORKS!
