When people say there’s no such thing as a free lunch, they’re usually on the money – but not in our case.

We’ve created a completely 100% free tool that anyone, anywhere in the world can use with absolutely zero catch.

That’s right, no subscriptions needed, no sign-ups required, no data taken – we don’t ask for anything in return. As our good deed to round out 2019 we’re helping businesses (both clients and non-clients) to upgrade their computers from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Most in-house IT teams and specialist IT support companies are helping organisations upgrade their PCs to the new version of Windows but very few are doing it for free.

To ease the burden on any businesses panicking about the upgrades, we developed our own Window 10 installer which allows anyone to seamlessly upgrade their operating systems.

The process for migrating from Windows 7 to Windows is actually really straightforward, which is why we were surprised to learn that a council spent £34,000 in November to help them upgrade all of their machines (which didn’t include the cost of the licence either).

While businesses will still have to pay Microsoft for their new Windows 10 licences, our free tool will allow the upgrade to happen on both Windows Business and Windows Enterprise versions of the system – our tool doesn’t care which is being rolled out. It will also work for businesses of all sizes with any number of PCs.

Silicon Valley giant Microsoft is ending its support for the popular operating system from January 2020. Windows 7 will cease to operate from January 14th 2020, leaving businesses scrambling to upgrade their outdated operating systems to Windows 10.

While Windows 7 machines will still work, Microsoft is retiring the 10-year-old platform. That means the tech giant will no longer provide any technical support for any issues and users will no longer receive software updates or security fixes, otherwise known as “patches”.

Microsoft has told users: “While you could continue to use your PC running Windows 7, without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware. Going forward, the best way for you to stay secure is on Windows 10.”

Microsoft also says it is possible for users to upgrade Windows 7 machines to run the Windows 10 operating system, its advice is that PCs should be replaced with newer machines.
