"Good to recommend someone who cares! I have met Malvern several times via network events and I am glad I had. PC had gone down, I contacted him for advice over the phone - next he is here rectifying the problem - on his way to an appointment for a potential new business. What a star! If your PC is down, call PCS!"

So back up now !!

Windows xp and Microsoft office 2003/2007 have been the main operating system and document handling program for so many years.

 

No surprise then that more computers are still running this old system mainly cos it works so well.

 

The thing is Microsoft are in such a hurry to get us all to change that customers missed Windows 7 and office 2010 which in my view are just as good if not better than anything that microsoft have made to date.

The answer is a simple one changing to windows 7 and office 2010 is an easy process and no new training is needed plus these systems are very secure and stable.

 

I some cases the windows 7 and office and be loaded onto desktops or laptops the companies already have so no need to buy hardware.

 

This will be the biggest change to computers for many years so best to get it right and spend where you need to - get professional advise on what changes you can make without spending a huge amount.
