Is Windows 10 is The Better Option Than Windows 8?
Hello, I am currently working on my laptop which works very greatly with the help of Windows 8 and I have no issue regarding this version of Window. But I am also curious to check Windows 10 and I am sure that it will be as good as Windows 7 which in my opinion the best and perfect Windows ever. Before thinking about installing a new Window, I read various articles about the issues which will appear if I install Windows 10. As I have no proper knowledge about Windows and Windows 10 so I came here to clear all my doubts. Someone says that "Windows 10 is not a good option for install Windows updates". Failed to Log-in properly and various issues regarding this topic. It consumes more data than other Windows and has lack security in the Wi-fi section. I am currently working as the Manager and Service Provider at the tilers Perth company. These are my top issues and I hope that you are able to solve my query as soon as possible.
I have a VPN that comes with my virus software and I have noticed that when I use it, it can be useful for giving me different search results based on the country location I have chosen.

Let's talk VPN's. Are they really necessary ?
Back when I was an active participant in the producing section of society, (I'm now retired). I used a VPN for connecting my laptop to many hotel/motel/restaurants' WIFI. This of course was in the days before tethering to my cell phone was allowed (cough, cough) and of course unlimited data plans. Today however there seems to be an abundance of free WIFI from stores, cable companies, and even some municipalities. What I've also noticed when I'm out and about is, that if there is a WIFI connection available, and I'm not connected to it, it will try and connect, there by almost stifling what I am trying to access. An example would be an Excel file. When that happens I simply shut the WIFI off, and go on about my business using my data plan. Given that tantalizing tidbit of information, and the fact that about the only place I consciously connect to WIFI is home, is a VPN in my case really necessary?
