Customer Question
I have a Samsung laptop...
I have a Samsung laptop (currently functioning on Windows 8.1). Microsoft keeps flipping on my screen that they want to upgrade it to Windows l0. The Geek Squad said not to upgrade it to Windows 10 because Samsung is not set up to handle it.
Should I let Microsoft upgrade Windows 10 remotely as they want, refuse it, or some other action?
Many thanks, ***** phone(###) ###-####

Can you tell me the model no. of the laptop, so that I can check whether it can handle Windows 10 or not ?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
