Woman Wins $10,000 From Microsoft Over Windows 10 Upgrade She Really Didn'T Want

Microsoft’s pushy Windows 10 upgrade tactics have finally come back to haunt them. Travel agency owner Teri Goldstein swears up and down that she didn’t want the upgrade and never asked for it, either. She told the Seattle Times she had never heard of Windows 10— not until she found it installed on her system and it started crashing on a regular basis. That’s not the sort of thing you need happening to a computer that you use to run your small business. Goldstein says that her computer was unusable “for days at a time,” and she says that she reached out to Microsoft Support for help. That didn’t solve her problem, so she decided it was time for Plan B. According to Wired, she filed a lawsuit against Microsoft, seeking damages to cover lost wages and the cost of a new computer — presumably a nice, stable system that’s running good ol’ Windows 7.That’s not the sort of thing you need happening to a computer that you use to run your small business. But Microsoft is quick to point out her $10,000 win is not actually an admission of guilt. They’re saying that they decided to settle to avoid a lengthy legal process and note that they’re continuing to investigate the particulars of Goldstein’s unwanted upgrade. http://www.geek.com/microsoft/microsoft-pays-woman-10000-over-forced-windows-10-upgrade-1659639/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com
