    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

You upgrade, get the key and do a fresh reinstall.

 

Never ever upgrade a Microsoft Os. Always fresh install

How do we do that without risking disaster?

Since upgrading to windows 10 the laptop is slower than a crippled snail

Thats because of the drivers on the system that didnt get updated. The OS runs almost flawlessly, as long as you disable all the privacy junk. People seem to think all drivers and software, registry entries etc will be updated and perform flawlessly with an OS upgrade. Thats NEVER happened with a MS OS.

Please explain.

Most of us don't understand a word of what you mean 😞

I know how to do a fresh installation, but how to disable this privacy stuff you said.

What about drivers?

You mean third party drivers or Ms?

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Are you aware that you can actually download Windows 10 to a flash drive to install at a later date.

 

Be aware though the flash drive needs to be 8gb and completely empty. It will NOT download all the updates though, you have to do that once installed

I've upgraded four laptops to Windows 10 with no problems, it resurrected two of them which had Windows 8.1 on and transformed the speeds.

 

I did disable varying security updates and some other odd bits that weren't needed, and have happy users.

 

Sometimes it is a good thing to totally stop automatic updates and just install the bits you want. I had to do that on an old laptop which kept stopping printing whenever Java was updated.

No, not yet. I use Win 8.1

 

Lots of reasons to stay with 8.1 including the old story of software and peripheral incompatibilities in 10.

I have upgraded to windows 10 and my laptop is sloooooow now ☹ .

I'm not expert in pc, so don't want to mess about with settings in case it goes wrong.

Compatibility with apps and other hardware is also an issue.

I have 2 printers, one that I use for black and white fast printing (cheap ink) and another for more important stuff and colour.

The first one is not compatible with windows 10, so I have to throw it away.

Not happy!
