If you are looking to upgrade your computers Operating System to Windows 10, we recommend that you upgrade your Centaur Applications beforehand. As always, when looking at upgrading/changing your computer system we strongly recommend you contact an IT Technician, as well as ensure all your hardware/software is compatible with the new Operating System.

Windows Update – Microsoft changing how it will handle upgrades to Windows 10 As per this blog early in 2016, Microsoft will be adding Windows 10 to its “Recommended Update” list and depending on your computers Windows Update settings this may cause your computer to automatically initiate the upgrade from your Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10.

This means that you may start receiving automated prompts asking if you want to continue with the upgrade. While you will need to click ‘Yes’ to upgrade (Windows will never upgrade you to Windows 10 without permission) this prompt can appear at any time. If you click ‘Yes’ by mistake, you could find yourself unable to use your computer for an hour or more while the Windows 10 upgrade takes place, resulting in some of your hardware/software not functioning correctly if it does not support Windows 10.

If you start seeing these prompts we recommend that you contact your IT Technician to either plan your upgrade to Windows 10 or stop the prompts from appearing.

Windows 10 is a free upgrade for people currently running Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.
