Don't worry Billy Boy ... from what I have seen of Windows 10 it looks a whole lot like 7 ... I like 7

Watch out with the free upgrade to 10. It is only good for 2 or 3 years then they charge you for every upgrade and all upgrades are automatic. Once they get your credit card number you are charged for everything. Thats how they can give 10 away for free.

thanks jerry , guess I will skip the up grade to 10 , when I was setting up my lap top out of the box , window 8.1 , something went wrong and a red box come up with a number to call , it was a warning not to go any further tell I called this number , I called and some indian came on that I couldn't understand , due to his unbroken English and me being hard of hearing , I finally had to hang the phone up and called my daughter to come and help me set this thing up , she got the same warning box and she called the help number , after chatting with them they told her to fix the problem I would have to pay for them to fix the problem , she told them its brand new out of the box , any ways they made her mad and she hung up and went to restore and started the process again , everything went smooth this time around , some body from the windows or hp call center must have had a racket going on , they wanted my credit card number so they could charge me to fix a brand new lap top , I was ready to pull the few remainings hair I have let on top of my head after going thru all this

If you have trouble with customer service you can ask to be transferred to someone in the US and they have to do it. Not saying you wont get someone that speaks a foreign language but they will understand you better.

I didn't know you could ask to be transferred to someone in the US.  Is that true for all company's?  Don't know how many times I got pissed and just hung up.  Cool

Pretty sure as a US customer you can ask for US customer service for anything, Trip.
