When a distand friend or relative calls me and asks if they should upgrade to Windows 10, I say yes, but, you need to do a few things. I tell them to back up all your stuff, then get a digital entitlement ticket using these instructions. Download the appropriate windows 10 iso using microsoft's download tool. Do a clean install activating with the genuineticket.xml entitlement ticket. Turn off most of what's wrong with windows 10 with shut up 10 (turn off everything but allow deferred upgrades), and replace the start manu with classic shell if you don't like the windows 10 one. Then install Avira antivirus free. *Edit: I forgot to add that I strongly discourage upgrading. Clean install is the way to go if the person is capable. Otherwise, yes, just upgrade. What advice do you give people that aren't tech savvy but can follow instructions?
