Microsoft Stops Nagging.
Starts Updating to Windows 10 --Without Your Permission !

As many of you know, Microsoft has been prompting (nagging) users with the offer to upgrade to Windows 10 for free, from Windows 7 or 8.

Recently  however, people are discovering that Microsoft has automatically installed Windows 10—without permission.  Surprise!

Imagine that you start up your computer ready to begin work and find a Windows 10 splash screen. The screen informs you that it has completed the upgrade to Windows 10!  The screen offers to ‘roll back’, but with warnings on the consequences.

Best Practices

While Windows 10 has many appealing features, it is not a safe choice for all users.

As with all Operating System upgrades, MBSG  recommends  that you  first perform due dilligence. Confirm that all of your applications are compatible with the upgrade.

For many businesses, best practice is to install Windows 10 on one machine, and test all of the standard apppications—before rolling out to other workstations.

Compatability Example

Intuit supports only QuickBooks 2015 and beyond on Windows 10.  While it is often a good idea to upgrade your accounting software to the latest version, not always. There may be conflicts with add-ons or plug-ins that need to be resolved. There may be  user training or work flow issues to resolve.
