Have they tried switching them off and on again?

Weird garbled Windows 7 update baffles world – now Microsoft reveals the truth


Upgrade or get garbled

It's actually Microsoft's latest strategy to get people to update to Windows 10

They will bombard them with garbled updates until the system is upgraded...

Windows 10 wipes your child safety settings if you upgrade from 7 or 8


Sophos UTM Home!

If you have an old PC (about 2GB Ram, P4?) then download Sophos UTM Home

It's completely free and much better than Windows parental controls

Also acts as a firewall, and got email protection too - along with a host of other features

Super Cali goes ballistic – Uber says it's bogus (even though its contract is something quite atrocious)

YES, Xbox One DOES need internet, DOES restrict game trading


Another reason for me to stick with the PC..

I've never been a fan of using a controller and prefer the keyboard/mouse - this is mainly due to the FPS style of games that I play - and due to me being brought up with the likes of the Spectrum 48k and C64 - (Z,X,P,L & SPACEBAR anyone?)

PC Games have virtually died of death in shops - yet there are rows and rows (and walls and walls!) of Xbox and PSx games - with an average price tag of £45! Oh and then you have your Live subscriptions on top of that!

Console are a massive rip off considering whats inside them, and the games are even worse!

I'd much rather spend cash on upgrading the PC - knowing that I can still enjoy my old games as well as the new.

Pre-owned games? not a problem - again Steam allows you to sell them on..

Viva la PC!

Still nothing here in sunny Manchester (yes it is actually sunny!)

As already said their tweets are going unanswered - in fact 3 seem to be keeping us in the dark...

Microsoft's Windows 8.1 secrets REVEALED ... sort of


There should have been 2 separate and completely different Windows 8 releases:

The touch feely version (RT) should have been exclusively for Tablets / Surface devices

and version that doesn't come with the touchy-feely IFKAM - built upon Windows 7 - Start Menu and all..

The certainly shouldn't have put TIFKAM anywhere near a server OS such as 2012!

PECR? seriously? Did someone not check this before they came up with the title of the law? Or was it deliberate ?

Windows 8: Not even Microsoft thinks businesses will use it


What a Mess

Has anyone else noticed that the Metro Start Screen forms the rather appropriate Acronym of "MeSS"
