    Aloha!
    It's so nice to be part of a community that cares about helping out your fellow man. I for one have just benefited from a suggestion just last night that has saved me so much time and money in the long run. Mahalo plenty!

    Free Upgrade Still Works!


    John here. I didn't think I'd ever want to move to Win10 but seeing that 2 of my machines at home running Win8.1 started and shut down faster than my 12 year old Win7 laptop, even after I trimmed MSCONFIG and Autoruns of extraneous stuff, and stumbling across Brink's "Upgrade to Win10 from Win7 for free" on this site I thought, what the heck? So I jumped in and the upgrade went fine, no hiccups or anything, and working in Win10 seems little problem.

    So thanks to Brink for posting that tutorial. I imagine that Microsoft may just continue offering the upgrade for free since they initially offered it free to so many people, and the fear factor (oh no..Windows 10!!!!!) is waning a bit.

    Hi John and welcome to Ten Forums. Brink's tutorials are legendary. I moved an ancient W7 lappy to W10 earlier this year doing a clean install and keeping the activation using one of Brink's tutorials with no issues at all.

    Welcome to TenForums, StarChase. Shawn's (@Brink) are the best thing since sliced bread. Others here create some pretty great ones too.
