Microsoft has released Windows 10 to the public on the 29th July 2015.
It is a free upgrade for PC’s running a legal version of Windows 7 or Windows 8. Earlier versions of Windows Vista or Windows XP does not qualify.
My trial with Windows 10 as a whole is pleasant one and I think it is a worthwhile upgrade.
Bear in mind that you have to download between 2GB and 4GB and the process may take up to three hours.
As is the nature of PC’s and software the upgrade process may not go smoothly. Be prepared to call in outside help.
Always make a backup of at least your documents, pictures and other valuable files.
A disk image is preferred.
What is TeamViewer remote support?
TeamViewer is a program that let’s your partner connect to your computer from a distance enabling the person at the other end to control the machine as he is sitting in front of it.
You will need to have a working Internet connection though.
How does TeamViewer remote support work?
When it is open you will see a window looking like this:
You can send with SMS, e-mail or WhatsApp.
TeamViewer must be running for the remote session to work properly – don’t close the windows with the red close button.
It can be minimized by using the button looking like _ in the toolbar to get it out of your way.
The person assisting you will then insert your ID in the Partner ID box and click Connect to partner – a window will appear where the password needs to be typed.
A connection will be established and a new window showing your desktop will appear on the remote partners computer.
The person can then do anything you can do on your computer from a distance.
Your partner can chat with you.
He can speak to you, asking for instance unplugging and reinserting a USB cable.
He can remotely restart your computer and again gain control when the machine has restarted.
At BOVER Technologies it is a service on an ad hoc basis – no unattended access setup so you computer cannot be accessed without your permission. This is a very secure programme.
