    Close to upgrading to Windows 11


    I checked with the PC health page and everything is okay.

    I read where there could be problems with the install of Windows 11. So I was going to make sure before I installed the upgrade to see if my machine already had TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot enabled. Or should I just wait and see if I receive an error message
    that Windows 11 cannot be installed correctly?

    My current laptop is 9 Months old. Bought in February 2021 Currently running Windows 10 64 Bit Home Edition 21H1
    OS Build 19043.1288
    Windows Experience Pack 120.2212.392.0

    Would secure boot not allow me to run certain programs Like Quick Par or VLC media player or 7 zip or Lock Hunter or Irfanview or HJSplit?

    When I join the New Windows 11 forum will I need a new password and Username?

    First download the MS 11 checker that will tell you if your pc is correct https://aka.ms/GetPCHealthCheckApp. Everything will run with secure boot its there to only boot registared o/s so no virus can load at boot.
    You will need a new username/passwors for 11 forum

    You have to register but you can use the same Username and Password if they are not taken.

    Secure boot only affects which operating systems will or will not boot. It has no affect on what you can run once the OS is loaded.
