Stop Windows 10 from Automatically Installing

This has been an ongoing issue for my customers and users around the world. While, for most, everything will be ok. For some, it will be a huge headache. Windows doesn't support all hardware and software. Programs stop working properly. Certain hardware doesn't work anymore. 

Well, luckily, there is an easy fix in the form of two apps that almost do the same thing. And, yes, they are completely free.

The first is Never10. It's main feature is how simple it is to use. It's also a very small application. Download it here:

However, if you're not happy with Never10, you have the GWX Control Panel. It give you more options and can run in the background to monitor for any Windows 10 attempts at installing. Download GWX Control Panel here:

There you go. An easy solution for an annoying problem.

The Xbox One S is available now for Pre Order

If you've been waiting for a smaller version of the Xbox One, your wait is almost over. It wasn't the best kept secret. But, the new Xbox One S was revealed at E3 this week. The 2 TB Version will ship out at the end of August. The 1 TB and 500 GB versions will not ship out till the end of December. However, all Xbox One S versions are available for pre order right now.

The Xbox One S does feature a new controller and the ability to stream and play movies in 4K.

So, starting at $299 is not a bad price at all.

Pre Order now at Amazon: Xbox One S 2TB Console

I have a feeling these are going to sell out in short time.
