Hi

 

I am using windows 8/8.1 and happy with it but last few days had a message saying it is outdated and to upgrade to Windows 10! Has anyone else had this message?

 

I have also had problems with Windows updates and messages saying error not able to update and the writing has gone small so had to increase it, I have 360 total security and do a scan daily

 

Any help/advice be appreciated thanks

 

Sandy

win 10 is far superior that 8/8.1

but i'm unsure if its still free now like it was

pretty sure that window has closed.

 

open 360 total security

click toolbox

click Patch up

do a scan and install everything it finds

even the optional stuff.

 

that should sort you issues

Users of “assistive technology” could still upgrade for free recently.

 

I’ll be able to report back in a few days if this is still available & free (I’ve been asked to upgrade a laptop, but it needs Win8 updates and backups first!).

Confirmed still available.

 

 

I sometimes need very small text enlarged.

MS provide a tool for that.

 

So, I guess that counts ....

anyone else got issues with 360 Total security?

 

Every time I use it to scan computer it crashes my comp and I am not able to do anything with it so have to close it down and restart it, The computer was fine till I got this! now getting quite a few problems, pages not loading, white screen, black screen, very slow etc. Done the patch up and it shows nothing, I am still using Windows 8/8.1.

Have had computer for about 6 years I think

 

Thank you

your webrowser issues could be re any ad/script blockers. disable those and then try the same web page you were trying.

do you have any other antivirus/security/firewall programs running as well as 360, such as windows mse etc.

try uninstalling 360 then, see how things go. but ensure you have at least one antivirus going.

also, could try another antiv to scan, see if there maybe a virus going on.


IMO

Pretty sure I installed this 360 Total security on a laptop and had the same issues. In the end I removed it and used another security programme.

 

From memory, i could not configure to make it work. It was just too big a programme, trying to do too much and making laptop performance really poor.


We could do with some help from you.

A shame you didn't update for free while you had the chance.

 

I'm not sure that an OEM version would allow you to upgrade (rather than a fresh OEM install)

Anyone able to say if it'd work (for £20)

it only does this when I scan computer, it does not seem to scan automatically so run it every day,. It always leave the computer freezing etc as stated in my first post about 360, I am still not convinced about Windows 10 and do not know anyone who has not had problems with it

I hope I'm not tempting fate,

but neither my machine,

nor any of the 3 I have updated for people have (yet!) had problems,

(or for those machines that had problems, 'less problems'!)

try the sfc dx mentioned, see if that works.

that wasn't why i ditched it (ie no sfc probs), i just didn't like it overall.

an alternative? up to you, do a search. though avira free seems to be ok.
