Are you a business?        We would recommend that you do not upgrade.

Is your current computer Windows 8.1?   It should be ok to upgrade.

Is your current computer Windows 8?     Before upgrading you need to have windows 8.1 with all security patches installed. If you try to update to Windows 10 it will fail.

Is your current computer Windows 7?   With Windows 7 you have a 50 / 50 chance of successful upgrade. If you do not need the increased functionality of Windows 10 then do not upgrade. If you decide to upgrade you need to make sure your data such as pictures and documents are all backed up. If you are having any issues with Windows 7 such as slowness or things do not seem to be working correctly, your upgrade will most likely fail. In some cases the only way to successfully upgrade is to clean install Windows 7 and then upgrade to Windows 10.

While Microsoft has fixed many issues plaguing the Windows 10 update there are still some issues with graphic drivers. It is a good idea to check with your computer manufacturer to see if Window 10 drivers exist. If the drivers do not exist then do not upgrade.
