I'm now placing this information as a permanent notification as there are what I consider significant privacy issues and probable compatibility issues which are now widely reported in the press. I recommend that you do NOT upgrade to Windows 10 from either version 7 or 8.1. Windows 7 Professional is still available for installation and will be for some time to come so please contact me for details. Click here for information on how to remove Windows 10 Update reminders or drop your PC round to us and we can do it for you. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND EFFORT MICROSOFT!!!

clickmarlow still recommends Windows 7!
A little tongue in cheek I know, but if you are buying a new laptop as a retail customer you will probably get Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. There are laptops still available with Windows 7 but they are few and far between. One option that is open to you though is buy a laptop running Windows 8 Professional. These allow you to downgrade the operating system to Windows 7. We have successfully "upgraded" Windows 8 normal laptops to Windows 7 but I'm sure it invalidates any warranty - and you should allow for the extra cost of the operating system currently around £60.
Another option is not to buy a new laptop with Windows 8. There are lots of second user laptops in superb condition already with Windows 7 loaded available on Ebay. Look for laptops listed as "Grade A". A typical suggestion of mine would be DELL Latitude E6500 - these were business workhorses in their time and still give fantastic performance when memory is fully populated.
Upgrading to Windows 10? DON'T
7 and 8.1 users will have noticed a small icon on the Task Bar inviting you to register for your Windows 10 upgrade which will be free to all users from the end of July 2015. I would advise all Windows 8.1 users to take this opportunity but wait a little while until the rush is over. All Microsoft releases are fraught with anomalies and you will do well to minimise your downtime by waiting a few months. For Windows 7 users I really think you need to evaluate the new operating system before taking the plunge. If you do decide to upgrade then ensure that your data backups are up to date. For those wanting to wait you might want to remove the Windows 10 nag from the Taskbar Tray. Download this zip file, unpack then run the batch file as Administrator (right-click - Run as administrator). JUST DON'T UPGRADE FULL STOP
CLICKMARLOW ADVISES AGAINST UPGRADING TO WINDOWS 10
An operating system (OS) is system software that manages computer hardware and software resources and provides common services for computer programs.
Windows 10 is none of the above. I am not happy with it being an advertisement platform which now appear in the Start Menu. I am also shocked by Microsoft's admission that they gather information about your usage of the computer. Perhaps I'm naive in thinking it would never happen but Microsoft have lost ALL my trust in them and I have a sense of revulsion in thinking about it. All along I have been advising clients to ensure they download the latest updates. I cannot recommend this now.
