Cherri International have received a number of telephone calls regarding the new Windows 10 features. Windows 10 still includes all the features included in Windows 7. Internet Explorer has been replaced by Edge. Internet Explorer, Control Panel and other tools are still there and it is fairly quick to change the Windows 10 interface, inluding a classic start bar.
Cortana and OneDrive can be disabled, if the user is not comfortable with these features. (Registry setting)
On a laptop, Windows 10 may appear in "tablet mode:", although this is easily disabled, it is quite confusing to the user. If "tablet mode" is enabled, it is designed for use with a touch screen. (Windows 10 setting)
If a consumer buys a brand new PC or laptop, and this has Windows 10 pre installed, the computer will run well. Windows 10 prefers the more current software, meaning some older software will not run. The Windows 10 "Free Upgrade" period has now lapsed. Cherri International can remove the offending files and give your computer a clean up. The process will take approximately an hour. This is also an ideal opportunity to review your virus protection. Clean up includes all your caches, temporary and duplicate files. Generally this can be done whilst you wait.
The Gold Coast has a myriad of excellent computer technicians. Unfortunately there is also a small number of "undesirables" who will "scam" a customer lacking in computer knowledge.
As a safeguard, if the computer technician does not have an ABN, please do not emply their service.
It is easy to run a check on any computer or IT Service. The ASIC - www.asic.gov.au allows you to check how long the business has been trading. The Government have established a number of departments to protect the consumer. These include Office of Fair Trading. http://www.qld.gov.au/law/fair-trading/ It is your right to report a bad experience.
