Upgrade Windows Guides

Introduction

You like the way you have setup Windows Vista or 7 then why not just upgrade it to Windows 8. If it works and goes through smoothly then you should have (In theory) the exact same programs and configuration as the previous version of Windows.

Many times though I have seen upgrades go drastically wrong due hardware/corrupted files/incompatible software/viruses/spyware etc etc, causing great disappointment to the person involved in the upgrade and sometimes a loss of data and personal information.

  2. It has many issues with incompatibility.
