With the release of Windows 10 now available, users who have downloaded the technical preview were relieved to see the return of a familiar Windows 7 user interface. Though when Windows 7 was released in 2009, mobile was not as prevalent as it is now; thus, the Windows 10 improvements and implementations of a mobile-friendly interface make it the ideal operating system for longtime holdouts … Continue reading Windows 10: the integrated OS for desktop and mobile users

Gerade lese ich einen interessanten Artikel zu diesem Thema. Hier beklagt sich Stern Online zu Recht, dass das kostenlose Upgrade-Programm von Microsoft verwirrend ist…und man deshalb die Meinung vertreten sollte, Windows 10 kostenlos für alle herauszugeben – eine einfache und elegante Lösung? Ich gebe zu, ich bin ein Vertreter der Software-Industrie und verdiene mein Geld mit Software…und ich erhalte nur Geld, wenn neue Versionen besser … Continue reading Windows 10 – kostenlos oder nicht?

Are you testing out Windows 10 Technical Preview? Good news! Laplink is offering PCmover Express for free!
Just like in Windows 8.1, Windows 10 Technical Preview doesn’t support a variety of migration scenarios. As a partner with and supporter of Microsoft, Laplink is cooperating with Microsoft to make using Windows 10 Technical Preview as easy and productive as possible.
A new vulnerability affecting Internet Explorer 6 through 11 users was discovered just this past weekend. The bug can grant hackers access to a PC, likely allowing them to install programs, create accounts, and view, change, or delete user data. It has already been exploited against U.S. financial and defense companies, resulting in the U.S. government issuing a strong warning about the risks of using these versions of Internet Explorer.
Microsoft is aware of the problem and is working on a patch. However, since support for Windows XP ended earlier this month, those who still using Windows XP are out of luck.
This bug is just the first in what could be a long list of vulnerabilities that will remain open for hackers, viruses, and malware to target XP users. It’s also a clear indication that the end of support doesn’t only affect the operating system, but other applications like browsers, too. Continue reading “New Internet Explorer Bug Exposed – Laplink Helps Vulnerable XP Users”
Starting today, Windows XP users will no longer receive technical assistance, security updates, or hot-fixes to their PCs. This leaves Windows XP users vulnerable to hackers, viruses, and other malware until they upgrade or migrate quickly to a different version of Windows.
While Windows has been an extremely successful and popular operating system since its release in 2001, it’s time for XP users to move to a newer, more reliable, and more secure operating system. Laplink offers several affordable tools to make that process easy, while allowing a high degree of customization.
Laplink’s PCmover is the only software that automatically moves all selected programs, files, and settings from an old PC to a new one, or from an old operating system to a new one. PCmover is easy to use, regardless of technical skill, thanks to a step-by-step wizard that helps users customize their migration experience by keeping everything or selecting exactly what they want to transfer.

The end of support for Windows XP is now less than a week away! If you’re still running Windows XP on April 8th, you’ll see an end to technical support, hot-fixes, and security updates for your PC, leaving your data vulnerable to hackers and malware. No matter how you want to move off of Windows XP, Laplink can help you move quickly without losing your programs, files, and settings.
Windows Easy Transfer – Severely Deprecated
Windows Easy Transfer was a free, go-to tool for many Microsoft users looking to upgrade. However, support for Windows Easy Transfer has been deprecated significantly in favor of cloud solutions. Windows Easy Transfer doesn’t support upgrades from 32-bit systems to 64-bit systems, which is a problem since most XP machines run on 32-bit and newer PCs are 64-bit.
Windows 7 – No Direct Upgrades
There is no direct upgrade solution from Microsoft to go from Windows XP to Windows 7. You can manually move using external media but requires extensive time and effort to transfer only your files and settings to an external storage device, then transfer that data again to your new PC.
With end of Windows® XP support just around the corner, an exciting announcement was revealed on Microsoft’s blog today—Laplink® Software will be partnering with Microsoft to provide Windows XP users with a free tool, PCmover® Express for Windows XP, to help users move off of Windows XP quickly and easily. “As the end of support for Windows XP on April 8 nears we’re continuing to … Continue reading Laplink Partners with Microsoft to Provide Free Windows XP Data Transfer Tool
