This is the latest advice from SMDComputers.

Windows 10 gets released on July 29 2015. If you have Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 the upgrade is free. Any customers who have Enterprise versions of the above software, the upgrade is not free.
Windows 10 is available to customers who have Windows XP and Windows Vista, but you will have to check to see if your hardware is compatible and sufficient to run Windows 10. The upgrade should also be free if the hardware is good.
For people who downloaded Windows 10 Preview in the past, there were a number of bugs that have been sorted in the Final Release. Once again my advice is to wait for the Final Release before deciding to go forward with Windows 10, or staying with the previous versions.




*** BEWARE ***

A customer of mine has just been phoned up with a variation of the microsoft scam. This scam entails you being phoned up and told that they are from Microsoft and they ask you to type a few things into the COMMAND prompt to 'prove' they are from microsoft. They say you have been infected with the HEART BLEED problem, and that you are vulnerable.
Do not believe them. Put the phone down. You on a laptop or computer, running Windows XP,2000,Vista,7 or 8 cannot have a HEART BLEED problem.
The next part of this scam is that they ask you to give them remote access to your computer. This is something you should never do, unless you have met an engineer from the firm that are proposing this. You do not know who is accessing your computer, and what information they can get from it.
If in doubt, make a quick call to myself on 07716010569, or to the police on 111 to verify if this is a scam.
Always remember, only allow a person you have met on your computer remotely.

I hope this stops any of my customers being scammed in the future.
