Microsoft Sneaks a Windows 10 Upgrade Alert

If you have been noticing a Windows 10 alert in the bottom right hand corner of your computer screen there is no need to fear. This is not a virus nor is it malware, it has actually been added to the Windows operating system through an update by Microsoft. By following the popup and registering, you will be able to have Windows 10 installed on your computer for free.

Do take in mind that Windows 10 is still a new operating system, and if you already have Windows 7 or 8.1, you may encounter technical problems. For this reason we do not recommend that you install Windows 10 on your computer. However, if  you are certain that you would like to go down the path of having Windows 10, we at Supportedge would be more than happy to give you the support and guidance that you will need.

Data Recovery

The most common data recovery procedure we perform involves a computer that won’t boot due to a drive failure. This is most often caused by a bump or a knock to the computer while the hard disk is writing critical data. Sometimes the head physically crashes into the the plater.

Stage one recovery prices start from only $250 for most media types including hard drives, discs and flash cards. This price includes GST and the replacement drive. In most situations we can recover your data in this first stage. The second stage of disc recovery is the [&hellip
