Windows 7 D-Day approaches
The final days of the support from Microsoft are approaching, as of of the 14th of Januart 2020, Microsoft officially remove support for Windows 7. What does this mean to end users? It means no new Windows updates, no new software, and no free help from Microsoft. You may have already noticed that new software from Microsoft doesn't work on Windows 7. Windows 7 won't stop working, it will continue to work as before, but will be less secure than newer operating systems. Some websites may stop working as older browsers are no longer supported, but you can download Microsoft Edge for Windows 7.


Investing in New Software
We have been investing in some new software recently, some of the new software is designed to help our technicians diagnose your computer problems a little quicker, and help cleanup any malware on your windows based computers. We can do this either onsite at a cost of £40 per hour* or at our premises for around £20-£30. We are also able to offer you Malwarebytes at a reduced price of £19.99 for 1 year**

* There may also be a call out charge based on the distance you are from Grantham or Sleaford.
** Normal price £29.99 for 1 Year.


Windows 10 Release day announced
Microsoft has revealed that Windows 10 will be released on the 29th July2015. It will be free to people who currently have windows 7/8/8.1 for the first year of its release. This means if you havent upgraded to windows 10 in the first year, you will have to buy it. It does not mean you will have to pay for it after the first year if you upgraded to Windows 10.

There is currently a Telephone based scam doing the rounds
If you get a phone call from Microsoft, or any other company out of the blue, telling you that your computer is showing up on their system as having a problem, PLEASE just hang up, otherwise they will scam you out of £120+ for work that does not need doing, and potentially installing malware onto your computer.

If you have already fallen foul of this scam, please contact us, or another reputable computer repair centre, we will give you advice on what should happen next.
