Upgrading Windows 7?
We can make your PC
A perfect (Windows) 10!
We're Windows specialists
During 14 years as Ottawa's most trusted computer service, Tech2Go has helped thousands of customers change to new versions of Windows.
Microdoft recently increased the pressure to upgrade by announcing the end of support for Windows 7.
That means no updates, no fixes, no security patches. Starting January 14, 2020.
Microsoft suggests upgrading to the current version of the operating system, Windows 10. Or buying a new PC, that includes 10.
Easy to say. Harder to do.
Breaking up isn't easy
Switching to a new operating system is one of the most challenging of computer chores.
Microsoft has been trying for years to simplify this process, and it has become more "user friendly".
But the nightmare remains of losing data or crashing the computer during this "migration".
Folks can also just be reluctant to give up an old friend. Or shell out hundreds of dollars on the self-serving say-so of corporate giants.
What's wrong with 7, they wonder?
Will Windows 10 be a new besty?
Or a new pesty . . . .
Friendly as it is,10 is still not 7.
Expect the usual challenges and frustrations in mastering a new operating system.
And be prepared to get more intimate with Microsoft and the other shadowy Big Brothers of the Internet.
Microsoft insists that Windows 10 users log on to a Microsoft computer every time they log into Windows 10.
This gives a whole new meaning to "he sees you when you're are sleeping, he knows when you're awake . . . ."
Tech2Go technicians can remove this privacy threat when setting up 10, and end automatic updates if desired.
Microsoft will be riding shotgun again.
Windows 10 can be more secure by design.
It also does a lot of new tricks: Xbox play, cloud file backup, screen capture, better photo handling, improved Internet connectivity (phones, tablets), lots of free programs ("apps"), etc.
The look is modern but customizable - Tech2Go can set up the desktop to look like the 7 desktop.
Reliable and popular, 10 is often cited as the best Windows yet.
